Ingredients

  • 12 whole wheat English muffins split
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 slices ham thickly sliced
  • 12 slices sharp cheddar

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Crack one egg into each muffin tin and sprinkle with salt and pepper. For even baking, gently break the yolk using a fork or knife.
  • Bake eggs until egg whites are firm, 18-20 minutes.
  • While eggs are baking, begin assembling the sandwiches by placing the bottoms of each English muffin on a flat surface. Top each bottom half with one slice of cheese and once slice of ham.
  • Place one egg on top of the ham and cheese half then top with the second half of the English muffin.
  • For easy microwave reheating, wrap each sandwich individually in parchment paper then place in a resealable plastic bag to freeze. To reheat, simply place in the microwave for 60 seconds on full power or 1 1/2 minutes on 50% power.
