Chill Chasin' Breakfast Sandwich
Recipe courtesy of the American Egg Board.
2 teaspoons butter
1 large egg, fried
1 whole wheat sandwich bun, toasted
1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 slice reduced-fat American cheese
1 piece leaf lettuce
1 ounces sliced or shaved ham, cooked ham
- Preheat butter in non-stick skillet until just hot enough to sizzle a drop of water.
- Break egg and slip into pan. Immediately reduce heat to low.
- Cook slowly until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken, but are not hard. Slide a turner under each egg, and carefully flip it over in the pan. Cook second side to desired doneness. Sprinkle with salt and ground black pepper if desired.
- Spread mayonnaise on each half of bun. Layer egg, cheese slice, lettuce and ham on one side of bun. Top with other bun.
Makes 1 serving.
Tip: May use toasted light multi-grain English muffin, whole wheat pita pocket, Canadian bacon, crisp bacon, smoked turkey, mozzarella cheese, provolone cheese, tomato slice, sliced mushrooms, etc.
