Breakfast Power Sandwich

It’s no secret that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for your body (and my favorite!). So it’s important to make sure you are getting the right amount of protein and whole grains to get you energized and revved up for the day ahead of you.

Ever since my 6th grade home economics class, I’ve been making myself breakfast sandwiches when I’m on the go – whether it’s before prepping for a big exam, before a busy work day, or just because it’s simply delicious. My whole family has caught on to how I make my famous “Carly McMuffin” that they now make them for themselves.

It’s a really easy recipe that can be served up in just under 10 minutes (my record is 4 minutes after a cup of coffee). Here’s what you need to make your personalized egg McMuffin:

1 English Muffin

1 slice of cheese – I choose swiss cheese

1 tomato slice

1 egg

1 slice of honey-glazed ham or 1 breakfast sausage patty

Italian seasoning

Salt

Put the english muffin in the toaster for about 3 minutes, until its crisp around the edges. While the english muffin is toasting, mix the egg and a sprinkle of the Italian seasoning and salt together in a small bowl. Then heat a frying pan up to medium high and fry the egg omelet style, folding it in half after about a minute in the pan. By now the english muffin has most likely finished toasting, take it out and set it on a plate with the slice of cheese on top of the bottom half, letting it melt. When you’re done frying the egg place it on top of the cheese. Finish off the sandwich with your slice of ham or sausage patty (which you can heat up while frying your egg), the tomato slice, and the top half of the english muffin. There you have it, your own breakfast power sandwich!
