Peppered Turkey and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

If you time it well, just place the cheese between the hot muffin and the hot egg and it will melt. If you don’t you can wrap the sandwich in a paper towel and microwave it for 15-30 seconds on low heat and melt the cheese completely. Just be careful not to over microwave it or the muffin will become chewy.


Ingredients

olive oil spray
2 large egg whites
1 light multigrain English muffin (I used Thomas’), toasted
1 slice (3/4 ounce) 2% milk American cheese
1 ounce extra lean, thinly sliced or shaved peppered turkey

Instructions

Lightly mist a 3-1/2 or 4-inch diameter ramekin or microwave-safe bowl with spray. Add the egg white.

Toast the English muffin in a toaster or under the broiler.

Microwave the egg in 30-second intervals on low heat until it is no longer runny.

Then assemble the sandwich by placing the bottom half of the English muffin, inside up, on a plate. Top it with the cheese, the egg, the turkey, then the top half of the muffin. Serve immediately.
