Father's Day Breakfast

June 16, 2012

Tom and I had these for supper last night- a lazy Friday night supper. They are one of my go-to weekend lunches or Saturday breakfasts and I guess now we can add Friday suppers to the list too. After I made them I thought they would be an easy Father's Day breakfast too. Kids can help make them and older kids could probably do them by themselves. They aren't for the faint of heart either- men like 'em just as much as the daintiest of women like me! HA!

Father's Day Eggers

1. Crack 1 egg into a hot frying pan with a little bit of butter for flavour and so the egg doesn't stick. Fry it until the yolk is starting to turn opaque and then flip over so it crisps up the other side too. Be careful you don't break the yolk when you flip it. As soon as you flip, turn the heat off, but leave the pan on the hot burner. This will ensure the yolk doesn't over cook and stays a bit soft and runny- that's the best way!

2. In the meantime, slice 2 slices of cheddar cheese thinly and pop an english muffin in the toaster.

3. When the toast pops, stick the cheese on it and top it off with the egg. The hot egg will melt the cheese.

4. Place a few pickled jalepenos on top of the egg and add some ham if you have it in the fridge. We happened to have some this time, but without ham is just as good!

5. Squish it all together so the yolk breaks and starts to run all over the insides of the sandwich. Chow down and enjoy!

Tweedle Tip: Pickled jalepenos add kick and flavour to any type of sandwich. I often replace mustard and mayo with jalepenos and it cuts back on the calories while adding great flavour. Even if you are not a fan of spicy foods, the pickled kind is not as hot. Try it! You'll love it!
