Quick Breakfast Sandwich

We made a marvelous discovery in The Bachelor’s Kitchen. It will keep you out of the drive-through on the way to work. Most bachelors, and bachelorettes, and lots of other people wait to get up until the last possible moment in the morning. They leave just enough time to shower, dress and maybe grab a cup of coffee as they head out the door. And many of you will stop at the fast-food joint on the way to work for a quick breakfast sandwich. Don’t get us wrong, we love breakfast sandwiches. But the ones on those delicious biscuits are so full of fat that everyone closes an artery somewhere.

We’re going to rescue you from all that with a breakfast sandwich that can be made in the same amount of time it takes to go through the drive-through of the fast-food restaurant. Our Egg Muffin Sandwich only takes a couple minutes to prepare. It’s tasty and very low in fat. Here’s what you need:

Coffee Mug Egg Breakfast Sandwich.
Coffee Mug Egg Breakfast Sandwich.
  • English muffins
  • Eggs
  • sliced cheese
  • a coffee mug or tumbler
  • optional sliced Canadian bacon or ham
  • optional light mayonnaise and/or mustard
  • optional butter

You can make this sandwich as rich or light as you choose. Split the muffin and put it in the toaster. While that’s going, ready the rest of your ingredients. Crack the egg into a microwave-safe mug about the size of the muffin. A coffee mug or short tumbler works perfectly. Add a teaspoon of water and beat the egg until well mixed. Microwave the egg for 30 to 50 seconds or until all the water is gone.

Now assemble the sandwich and you are ready to go.  Cheese, bacon and mayonnaise or mustard can up the flavor but you don’t necessarily need it. Skip the drive-through and have a hot breakfast sandwich anytime.
