  • Heat a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place an egg ring or round cookie cutter (about 3¼ in. in diameter) in pan and place ½ tsp butter inside ring.
  • Beat 1 egg in a bowl with a pinch each of salt and pepper until egg white and yolk are mixed together.
  • Toast a split English muffin.
  • When butter in pan is melted and sizzling, pour egg into ring (it will begin to bubble), turn heat down slightly and cook for 3 min or until egg is almost fully set (top will still be runny). Run the tip of a knife inside the metal ring to loosen, pull off and flip egg in pan. Cook for 30 sec. or until just set. Top with ½ oz thinly sliced cheddar cheese and, if desired, 1 piece of cooked bacon.
