This recipe has completely won us over. The inspiration came when My husband’s cousin Vicky shared a video on Facebook for a breakfast sandwich. After making our version 4 days in a row, we knew it needed to be shared with you.

This is also a kid-friendly breakfast. Our son requests this sandwich all the time.

Ingredients for 1 Breakfast Sandwich:

1 english muffin, cut in half
2 eggs
2-4 slices of ham (we ❤️ black forest but any kind will do)
1/3 cup finely shredded cheese (we used Mexican cheese)
1 tsp chives, finely chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil or butter to saute

    Hi! What temp is the ham? Do you just take it out cold from the fridge and put it on the sandwich or do you heat it up? Reply

    I’m having a wedding shower brunch on Saturday and I think I will serve these sandwiches. I will start cooking them up 30 minutes early and wrap in foil then keep in a warm roasting pan. Do you think it will work? Reply

    • Natasha

      January 30, 2018

      Hi DeAnn, the only concern I would have about that is the muffin would get soft from the trapped steam inside the foil. It sounds like a good idea, but I would suggest testing by wrapping one in foil for 30 minutes to see if the moisture doesn’t make the muffin too soft. Reply

      I think these are best served fresh. I would recommend prepping the ingredients for the sandwiches in advance so it only takes 5 minutes to prepare a hot and cheesy sandwich. I do think it would still work to make them ahead and then put them in the oven or microwave before serving to warm them and melt the cheese. Reply

    How is the breakfast sandwich different from McDonald’s Eggmcmuffing ? Same ingredients except for chives and Mexicheeses. Reply

      You have much higher quality ingredients, it tastes much better and it is much more satisfying – egg mcmuffins have nothing on this sandwich! 😉 Reply

    This is an awesome recipe. It’s super easy and quick, and super delicious. I usually don’t cook breakfast for my husband (he is too picky about his breakfast), but I decided to give it a try. He loved it, and asked for it again the next morning. I used turkey instead of ham (that’s what we had in the fridge), and added a slice of bacon! You can’t beat this recepi! Natasha, thank you! Reply

    Ha Ha! Still chuckling at how easy this is Natasha! Easy, but Genius! Soooo tasty and wonderfully quick! I substituted some sliced red onion for a crunchier texture (I hope you don’t mind!) which I really love!
    Yet another brilliantly handy recipe from Natasha’s Kitchen! Thank You so much!

    I’ve made this before but not like you did in one pan. Now I’m hungry. I noticed you had an avocado on your counter. Do you use it on the sandwich or was it just for decoration? Just curious, because I love avocado. Reply

      You can put it in the sandwich or just serve it on the side for breakfast which is what we did. I sprinkle avocado with salt and pepper and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. So yummy! 🙂 Reply
