I work with a lot of foodies and I love it! Every now and then, when we are waiting for a meeting to start, or just taking a quick break from our hectic day, we talk food. One day, before a meeting, Roger, one of the owners, tells us of something his dad made when he was a kid - he called it Double Trouble. Roger starts to explain to us that his dad would take an English muffin, spread butter on it, top it with liverwurst, and last but not least, top it all with a nice fried egg! Ok, for a lot of people, you just read liverwurst and started to back away slowly from your computers. Not me, I love liverwurst, I grew up eating it, so to me, this sounded wonderful!! I was instantly thinking about picking up liverwurst the next time I was at the store. And that's exactly what I did.
Why the name Double Trouble? Well, Roger wasn't certain as to why his dad called it that, but I liked the name and thought if I was going to give the recipe true justice, I would stick with it.
Now for some, I know this will not appeal to you.. heck, some of you may have never even heard of liverwurst before... but if you are a liverwurst fan, you must try this. It was such a delicious little treat that I kick myself for not thinking of it on my own! Next time I make it though - and there will be a next time - I will cook the egg to over medium at the most and I will add cheese. I think a little cheese would have made it even that much better! Oh, and I did not use butter on the English muffin.. I was too excited and just dropped the liverwurst and egg right on it before I had a chance to do it.. you can add it if you want, or leave it out.. I don't think it really made that much of a difference.
Thanks, Roger - I hope I did your father proud!

Fry egg to your desired liking - over easy, over medium, over hard. (I actually cooked mine just a tad bit longer than I wanted, but that's ok.) Toast English muffin.
