Scrambled eggs and sausage patties are nestled inside dough in these Breakfast Bombs. These breakfast sandwiches are the ultimate grab and go breakfast option!
One of the things I hear all the time is that people need handheld food recipes. We’re talking no silverware needed, hold it in your hand and keep on driving food.
Even if you’re not a farmer, chances are you have a need for food like this too.
Soccer practice, piano lessons, running late for work…
I guess we all need this type of grab and go breakfast!
These are slightly different than the biscuit bombs you may have seen. Because these use pizza dough instead of biscuits (think Pillsbury tubed ones in the refrigerator section), they have more a pretzel like dough.
They’re a little different than a breakfast biscuit sandwich, but I think you’ll love them!
So, I wasn’t sure what to call these other than egg, sausage and cheese breakfast sandwiches.
After the jokes I got when I posted Sausage Balls I thought I better think long and hard about what to call them.
Then I thought I’d call these Breakfast Hot Pockets but my husband expressed concern. He said they’re more doughy than a hot pocket.
And trust me, he is very invested in these because when they came out of the oven, I delivered them to my farmers working in the shop.
Their faces lit up when they sampled these pizza dough encased bites of sausage, egg, and cheese.
And so, he declared they should be called breakfast bombs, and here we are.
I kept these super simple but of course, you could customize them with whatever you like.
- pizza dough – you can use homemade, refrigerated or frozen pizza dough. I used frozen and thawed it in the refrigerator overnight.
- eggs – for the scrambled eggs, plus a little to wash the tops of these before they bake
- sausage patties – pre-cooked breakfast sausage patties are the ones we’ll need for this recipe
- shredded cheese – I went with finely shredded cheddar
How to Make Breakfast Bombs
I made a quick video to help describe these steps, but here they are in word form. I promise, these are easy to make or they wouldn’t be living here on TFGC!
Full instructions are in the recipe card below, but here’s the quick rundown.
Step 1: Scramble your eggs. Make them however you like them and set them aside.
Step 2: Roll your dough. Whatever kind of dough you’re using, roll it into a rectangle about 12 x18. If the dough keeps springing back after you roll it, you may need to let it rest for a few minutes. Then try again.
Once you have your rectangle, use a pizza cutter or knife to cut six equal squares.
Step 3: Add the inside ingredients. Place your sausage patty, scrambled egg mixture and shredded cheese on top of each square. Seal the breakfast bombs by pulling the corners up as well as the center of each edge. Pinch to shut. It doesn’t have to be super pretty, just made into a package.
Step 4: Brush the tops with egg. Take the remaining beaten egg and brush it on the top of each breakfast sandwich. The egg wash will help them to have a nice sheen and make them golden brown when they cook.
Step 5: Bake them. Bake for about 30 minutes until the top is a golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving because they’ll be hot inside!

When you make these breakfast sausage
Skip the egg wash on top and give the the tops a little bit of cooking spray.
I haven’t tested these in the air fryer (yet) but these would be a great contender as an air fryer breakfast! I’ll come back and update when I do.

When you make these breakfast bombs, leave a recipe review or comment below. I’d love to hear from you!
- 16 ounces prepared pizza dough
- 6 eggs, beaten
- 6 cooked sausage patties
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 egg, beaten, for egg wash
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Heat a medium sized non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the beaten eggs and cook over medium low heat, stirring with a rubber spatula, until cooked to your liking. Remove from heat and set aside
- Using a rolling pin, roll the pizza dough into a rectangle approximately 18 inches by 12 inches. Use a pizza cutter to roll the dough into 6 pieces. You'll have six equal sized squares.
- Place a sausage patty on the center of each dough square. Top the sausage patties with equal portions of scrambled eggs.
- Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the center of each.
- Stretch the dough for each piece and bring the corners and sides up to the top of each bagel bomb. You can use your fingers to pinch the seams shut. You may need to pull and manipulate the dough to get around the toppings.
- Use a silicone pastry brush to brush the remaining beaten egg over the top.
- Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, until tops are light golden brown. You may want to rotate your pan halfway through, as ovens have different hot spots.
- Cool on the pan for 5-10 minutes before removing the bagel bombs to a wire cooling rack.
