Egg, Ham and Cheese Muffin (Egg McMuffin) - Gluten-Free



EGG, HAM AND CHEESE MUFFIN

Similar to an Egg McMuffin® This makes for a substantial and very tasty breakfast! It will be hours and hours before hunger strikes again.  These English muffins are actually bigger than the original English muffin and they make a super substitute without all the refined carbs.


English Muffin, page___
2 tsp butter (10 mL)
1 slice of cheese, OR
  2 tbsp shredded Cheddar cheese (30 mL)
1 poached egg
1 slice of Canadian ham

Prepare English Muffin, page___ as directed.  Toast halves well (put the toaster on as far as it will go or see what I like to do these days in the Helpful Hints below) and butter.  Place slice of cheese on one half and top with poached egg and Canadian ham.  Top with remaining half. 

Helpful Hints:  I sometimes like to add a little mayonnaise as well.  Another way, that I prefer these days is to toast the muffin halves in a nonstick pan with some bacon grease....wow, now that's tasty!

Great breakfast item. I went over to your muffin link and I am amazed at how quick they come together via the microwave! I do need to work on my egg poaching skills, but other than that I am good to go. I will need to try this for my husband's take along breakfast! The filling factor is also a bonus-no snacking before lunch!

I cheat, Tina. I have a little egg poacher gadget for the microwave oven. Easy peasy! ;)
