Breakfast Sandwich

On days when I don't really know what to make for dinner, one of my fall backs is breakfast. I love having breakfast for dinner, mainly because I do not make breakfast a lot. I'm more of a cold cereal person, except weekends. I haven't made breakfast on weekends lately as I am usually catching up on sleep because the weekends are my days to sleep in! Our son is teething and is not sleeping very well at night, but that is a whole other issue.

So last week I decided to make these sandwiches for dinner, they turned out wonderfully!

Breakfast Sandwich

First, you want to get your pan to the right temperature to fry the eggs (to keep them from sticking.) To test to see if the pan is the right temp, drop some water into the pan. You should use this technique with any pan frying, unless you are doing it in a non-stick skillet, then you don't have to worry about it sticking.

When you drop it, if it fizzles it is not ready... you'll know it is ready when it forms a ball in the pan.

This water ball is a little fuzzy since it is moving, this pan is not quite at the right tempterature, but it is close and this is the only picture I have of the water ball. If the water breaks into many little pieces, it is too hot and you will need to cool the pan down.

Next, add some butter or oil to the pan, and place wide mouth jar rings (this keeps the egg in the right shape for the English Muffins.)

Add the eggs. If you are not taking pictures of your food, you can use your other hand to secure the ring to the pan so none of the egg escapes. Be careful as the ring will be warm to hot so you may want to either use a gloved hand or a spatula to keep it held down.

If you do not hold it down, a little bit will escape, but unless you are looking for a perfectly round egg, it will be fine. If some does escape, you can cut it off and discard that part of the egg.

I used the cup I poured the egg into the ring with to keep any more egg escaping.

Break the egg yolk and season with salt and pepper.

After about 3-4 minutes, you should be able to remove the ring. If you start to remove the ring and the egg starts running, simply place it back down until the egg is more cooked.

After the ring is removed, the egg is cooked enough to flip it. Cook until finished. About 3 minutes more.

Add cheese one minute before the egg is done. When egg is done, remove from pan. The cheese will continue to melt.

In the same pan, cook two to four pieces of Canadian Bacon until browned on each side, depending on whether you want one or two pieces on each sandwich..

Place Canadian Bacon on top of eggs.

Place egg and Canadian Bacon on top of a toasted English Muffin.
