1 English Muffin

1 Large Egg

1 Slice of Canadian ham

2 Tbsp. Cheddar cheese, shredded

1/2 Tsp. Fresh chives, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly grated black pepper


1. We are going to be using my handy-dandy breakfast sandwich maker to make this sandwich. So, plug it in and follow the manufacturers instructions on where the ingredients go in the machine (Piece of cake!).  I like to whisk the egg with the salt, pepper and chives before adding to the egg compartment to cook.  Add the English muffin bottom, cheese and ham and egg mix to the right compartments, top with the top half of the English muffin and let it cook. (4-5 minutes)

2.  Remove from the breakfast sandwich maker and enjoy!

NOTE: Even if you don’t eat a lot of fast food, you definitely have had an Egg McMuffin and if you haven’t, you should.  I just think you can do a better job at home and you’ll know it is fresh and you’ll know the quality of your ingredients.  It is also fun!  If you have kids, they’ll love it.  If you have guys that like to “play” in the kitchen, they’ll love it too.  For a quick breakfast for one, I can make this in five minutes in the morning.   I used the Hamilton Beach sandwich maker to make this sandwich.  It just makes it so easy.  BUT if you don’t have that tool, you can still make this breakfast pretty quick.  Just follow these instructions:

.  Toast the english muffin.

.  In a skillet over medium heat that has been sprayed with cooking spray, use a ring mold and add your mixed egg into it.  Let it cook until set (about a minute) and remove the mold.  Flip the egg and cook another minute.  When you first crack your egg, add the Canadian ham to the same skillet on the side to heat up.  Flip that when you flip the egg.

.  Assemble your sandwich by putting the cheese on the toasted bottom half of the English Muffin.  Top with the slice of warm Canadian Ham and top that with the Egg.  (the heat from the ham and egg will melt the cheese).

.  Top with the top half of the muffin and dig in!  Fast and east and better when you make it at home!
