English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich

2 servings


  • 1 small tomato
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 2 whole wheat English muffins
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • Pinch salt

Optional Ingredients:

  • 1 small avocado
English Muffin Breakfast Sandwich


  1. Rinse and slice tomato into 4 slices. Rinse spinach. If using avocado, peel, remove pit, and slice now.
  2. Split each muffin in half. Set muffin tops aside.
  3. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat oil.
  4. Gently break eggs into skillet. Be careful not to break the yolk. Cook about 1 minute. Carefully flip each egg over with a rubber spatula. Cook until yolk is slightly firm, about 1–2 minutes. Top each muffin bottom with cooked egg.
  5. Add spinach to skillet with a splash of water and pinch of salt. Cover and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes.
  6. Top the egg with tomato and spinach. If using avocado, add avocado slices now. Cover with the muffin tops to make a sandwich.

Chef’s notes:

  • Scramble the eggs instead of frying, if you like.
  • Try toasting the muffins in a toaster or in the oven set to broil before adding eggs and toppings.
  • Top cooked eggs with sliced low-fat cheese or turkey bacon. Cook 1 slice turkey bacon in skillet for 1 minute on each side. Break into pieces and add to muffin.
