I am not a huge breakfast person, but once in awhile I wake up hungry, and this is a super easy breakfast sandwich that I will make. I also make this for lunch sometimes too. It’s very easy, should not take you more than five minutes to do everything, and it’s way cheaper (and healthier) than going to a fast food restaurant and getting one of their egg sandwiches.
My friend Amanda taught me how to make this sandwich earlier this year and I am really glad she did! You can mix it up and use different spices or toppings. This recipe is just for a basic egg sandwich with cheddar cheese. I have made bacon with it before, or even put a slice of deli meat on it. Sometimes I season it with garlic powder and use feta or goat cheese in it, that’s usually for lunch though. I know my boyfriend enjoys this with lemon pepper as the seasoning. Play around with it and try different combos that suit you!
Coffee Cup Breakfast Sandwich
One English Muffin
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
One tsp milk, heavy cream, or half and half – whatever you have on hand will work
Salt & Pepper
Toast English Muffin to your liking in the toaster. While it is cooking, start on the egg.
Get a microwave safe coffee cup and spray it lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
Crack egg into the cup and add one teaspoon of whatever you have on hand – milk, heavy cream, or half and half. Beat egg and cream together. Season lightly with salt and pepper (or garlic powder, lemon pepper, etc…)
If you want cheese in the egg itself, sprinkle some in and beat lightly – when I make my feta or goat cheese sandwiches I add the cheese before cooking.
Place coffee cup in the microwave and cook for 1 minute and 20 seconds.
By this point your English Muffin should be done, place the muffin on a plate. When the egg is done cooking, turn the cup over the bottom piece of muffin, the egg should slide out with no problem because of the cooking spray. If you need to shake or tap the cup to help it out, that is normal.
Once the egg is on the muffin, top it with a little bit of cheddar cheese. Place the top piece of muffin over the cheese, smash it down so the cheese will melt from the heat of the bread. Allow to sit for a few moments so the cheese melts and the egg cools to a temperature that won’t burn your mouth 😉 Enjoy!
