Microwave Breakfast Sandwich

Microwave Breakfast Sandwich

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 1 English muffin - lightly toasted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 1 slice pre-cooked bacon or sliced ham
  • butter as desired
Break egg into lightly greased microwave-safe small bowl. The bottom of the bowl should be roughly the size of your English muffin.

Beat the egg lightly and microwave for about 45 seconds to a minute until set.

Butter the English muffin as desired. Make a sandwich with the cooked egg, cheese and meat. Microwave sandwich 10 or 15 more seconds until cheese just begins to melt.

Have a healthier fast-food-style breakfast sandwich in the same amount of time you'd be waiting in line at the drive-thru.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank BethH for this recipe.

I make these all the time. Like someone else kind of said... It's best to microwave the egg for 20 seconds, stir it up and then microwave for another 20 seconds... much more fluffy and like a fast food restaurant that way.

To make the egg patty more fluffy like the fast food restaurants: Microwave for 20 seconds and then stir the egg. Then, microwave until the egg is completely set - about 20 more seconds.

I am totally surprised at how good the egg turned out in the microwave. Is that what some of the fast food restaurants do? Anyway, the breakfast sandwich came out really good and I'll make it again sometime.

I make this all the time with Canadian bacon. Only suggestion is to cover egg bowl with a paper towel because it sometimes splatters a little bit. Also... I forget the brand, but look for honey-wheat English muffins. They work best and are healthy.

This recipe is great cause before I was making this same thing the long hard way. I have tweeked it some to make it more healthy by using a 100% whole wheat muffin, 2% cheese, and no butter. I also use Olive Oil to make the egg with.

I started making something like this several years ago while I was on Weight Watchers. To save calories and fat, instead of ham or bacon, I sprinkled some Penzey's Breakfast Sausage seasoning instead. All the flavor of Sausage without the bad stuff.

So easy a teenager can do it! Recommendations... place a paper towel over the bowl when you are cooking the eggs (it will save time for clean up). Make sure you use non-fat cooking spray in the bottom of the bowl before you put in the egg so the finished egg mix will slide out onto your English Muffin (again helps in clean up) and finally Canadian bacon is the perfect size and taste paring for this high protein meal.

Another way...

Whip the egg until beaten. Add salt and pepper as desired. Microwave on HIGH for about 1 minute. Take out, Place Just the cheese over the egg, and microwave for another 30 secs. While this is happening, you can toast your bread, bagel, or muffin until the cheese is melted. When all is finished, slide the egg and cheese right off the bowl and onto the sandwich. (To Add Bacon, Just Microwave for 1-2 minutes. Then Add!)

Hope you all can enjoy this as much as i do. VERY VERY fast breakfast.

You can make it even more healthy by using egg beaters and microwaving for 90 seconds, shake and then microwave another 30 seconds...
