Egg-in-a-Hole Breakfast Sandwich

This sammy is so loaded with good stuff—ham, cheese, spinach and tomato, plus a gooey fried egg—you may need a knife and fork. And a napkin.

Ingredients

  • 4 English muffins
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter , softened
  • 4 eggs
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 4 slices Swiss or mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices Black Forest ham
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • ¼ cup tomato bruschetta topping

Directions

  • Spread butter on both sides of English muffins. Cut a 2 1/4-in. circle in centre of each top using a cookie cutter.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Add muffin bottoms and cut-out centres. Toast, flipping halfway, about 3 min. Divide among plates.
  • Place muffin tops, cut-side down in pan. Crack eggs into holes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook, flipping halfway, until egg white is set but yolk remains runny, 2 to 3 min. Top with cheese.
  • Spread bottoms with bruschetta, then layer with ham and spinach. Sandwich with muffin tops.
