Savory Goat Cheese and Basil Breakfast Sandwich


I love a good breakfast sandwich and this is one I find myself making quite often. I've got it down to a science and can make it now in 10 minutes flat, making it a great breakfast for on the go! Goat cheese is one of my favorites, but definitely a splurge, so I often make it with low-fat mozzarella instead.  Here is what you'll need.


- 1 egg and 3 tbsp egg whites

- 1 tbsp minced chives

- 1 tbsp chopped basil

- 1 whole grain English muffin 

- 1 oz goat cheese or low-fat mozzarella


Beat egg and egg whites together.  Heat pan over medium heat. Mist pan with cooking spray and add egg mixture. Sprinkle chives, basil and cheese evenly over the eggs.  After 3-4 minutes (or when eggs are somewhat cooked), slice down the middle of the eggs and flip each side. Continue cooking until desired doneness; 1-3 minutes depending on the heat. Fold egg halves into thirds and lay on top of warmed English muffin.
