How to Make Goetta Breakfast Sandwich
- Bake up eight large buttermilk biscuits. Prepare your biscuits according to package instructions and allow for them to cool before using.
- Preheat your oven to 475 degrees F and grease the baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl stir together the hashbrowns (I used refrigerated; store-bought hash browns), one lightly beaten egg, salt, pepper, melted butter, and cornstarch.
- Create 8 separate mounds of hashbrowns (I find this is the easiest way to make potato pancakes that are good and crisp). Place onto your prepared baking sheet.
- Bake the potato pancakes for 10 minutes and flip the pancakes over and bake for another 5 minutes.
- Add one slice of cheese to each pancake during the last minute of baking. I topped the potato cakes with nutty Asiago cheese slices. I love the flavor the Asiago lends this sandwich, but you could use any cheese slice you like.
- Meanwhile, spray a large skillet with nonstick spray and place your meat patties onto it.
- Cook for about 8 minutes per side or until finished.
- Remove the sausage and then set it aside. Wipe out the skillet if needed.
- Cook the remaining eggs in batches over low heat for about 3 minutes or until they reach your desired level of doneness.
- Assemble them by slicing a biscuit in half and placing one potato pancake on the bottom half of each biscuit. Top with a cooked sausage patty, a fried egg, and the remaining biscuit half.
- Serve immediately.
Goetta sausage. Goetta is a sausage and grain mixture that is big where I live. It’s typically a combination of pork and oats; it’s awfully similar to scrapple. You can find this near your breakfast sausages in your supermarket. If goetta is not available, then traditional pork breakfast sausage is a great substitute. Just divide the meat into 8 pork patties and cook until done.
Fried Eggs. Fried eggs are the crowning glory. I liked to keep my fried eggs on the runny side. I love how the runny yolk creates a sauce for my biscuit sandwich, but of course, fry your egg the way YOU like it! I found between the egg and the cheese, my biscuit sandwiches didn’t even need butter. Everyone likes their eggs cooked differently and while I like mine a little runny, you may not. So go ahead and cook your eggs until they’re to YOUR liking because you will be the one eating this sandwich.

I have a cousin who is just like that. She CANNOT handle anything touching. As a joke we got her one of those little trays like you would get your lunch on at school with the little compartments haha! Nothing touches!
These sandwiches look AMAZING! Everything I love about breakfast in one!

You must live near Cincinnati! I grew up there in a northwest suburb. I’ve never seen goetta outside of Cincy. Now I have to ask, Gold Star or Skyline? I prefer Gold Star, but Skyline is clearly the more popular of the two.
I know I’m taking a chance with this recipe; as many people won’t have any idea what Goetta is! Do you like it yourself? I am a Skyline fan; in fact, I think I’ve only eaten at Gold Star once in my life! So happy to connect with a former local!

I do like goetta. I’m a Gold Star fan, but I never turn down Skyline either. Every time I’m back in town visiting family, I have to stop there. Love the blog, and excited to learn that you live in Cincinnati! Have you ever been to Goetta Fest that’s held down in Newport? I live in Colorado now, and they just don’t do festivals like Ohio does.
Ohio does love their food festivals! I have never been to Goettafest; I seem to always have something going on. Perhaps this will be the year; Glier’s is the best! I’m so happy you found my blog Sarah!
