Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. Right? Step up your breakfast game with this powerhouse egg and hummus sandwich. I start my day with an open faced breakfast sandwich at least once a week.
I prefer to eat an open faced breakfast sandwich. The first thing I do is slice the Ezekiel sprouted grain English muffin in ½. I put one half in the refrigerator for later in the week and the other half I am using, I put in the toaster.
Next, I start my egg. If you don’t enjoy a runny yolk, you can cook your egg all the way through. I love a runny yolk that drips over the rest of the sandwich spreading yolky goodness to each bite I take. With that in mind, place a tablespoon or so of butter in a small pan and allow it to melt over low-medium heat. If you’re using a stove that has number dials, I place my burner between 3 and 4. Once the butter is melted take a spatula and spread the butter around the pan.
Crack open the egg, drop the insides into the pan and discard the shell. Cover your pan with a lid and allow the egg to cook for 3 minutes or so. At this time, I like to add a dash of garlic powder and a crack of black pepper. You will know it is time to flip the egg when the white part of the egg looks mostly cooked and glossy on top. The yolk may form a thin white layer on top. Gently loosen the edges of the egg from the pan with your spatula and flip the egg. It should only take a few seconds to a minute to cook this other side. Keeping the heat inside the pan with a lid allows the egg to cook evenly and keep a gooey yolk. If you prefer your yolk done, just keep it on the burner longer and it will cook right up.
Next, spread your desired about of hummus across your English muffin. I usually use about two tablespoons. Place the two pieces of cheese across the muffin and top it with the cooked egg. The heat from the egg will melt the cheese.
1 Ezekiel English muffin- sliced in ½
2 tablespoons of roasted red pepper hummus
2 thinly sliced pieces of old croc extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 pasture raised egg
1tbsp grass-fed butter
Toast 1/2 of an English muffin and spread hummus on the cut side. Place a piece of cheese on top of the hummus. Cook one egg over easy and place it on top of the cheese and voila!
