Egg-n-Muffin Breakfast Sandwich

When I was young, my mom would make egg “McMuffins” for breakfast.  They were a humongous hit with me and my brother.  In fact, we both eat them fairly regularly to this day!

Egg-n-Muffin Breakfast Sandwich

I recently learned that eating protein at breakfast is beneficial for weight loss (thank you, Rachel Ray!).  According to MedicineNet, consuming protein in the morning keeps hunger at bay longer, therefore curbing the desire for that mid-morning snack. (http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=50736).

Besides the health benefits of eating a high-protein egg sandwich, this is a quick and easy breakfast to make.  From start to finish, one sandwich takes less than a minute and a half.  And it’s portable!  Although I don’t recommend eating on the run, it’s bound to happen on occasion, and a breakfast sandwich is so much better than a bowl of cereal in those situations!

Prep and cook time: 1-1/2 minutes     Approximate cost: $0.75

Egg-n-Muffin Breakfast Sandwich

  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 English muffin (preferably whole wheat)
  • 1 slice American cheese

Lightly spray a microwave-safe bowl with nonstick spray.  Beat egg in the bowl with salt and pepper to taste.  Toast English muffin.  Microwave the egg on high for 45 to 50 seconds.  Lay a slice of American cheese on the egg and microwave for another 10 to 15 seconds.  Place egg on toasted English muffin and serve.

Each sandwich serves 1.
