A Better Egg Muffin Sandwich

9 WWPP Posted by 3 years ago 9 Comments

Six years ago — insert Holy Crap I’m old and I’ve been blogging far too long joke here — I shared my favorite way to turn a hard boiled egg into a quick sandwich. It’s something I still make pretty regularly but this morning I decided to step it up a little by adding avocado, spinach and bacon.

Better Egg Muffin SandwichThe result was fan- (I really want to curse) -tabulous!

So simple, so tasty and it took literally minutes to pull together.

Here’s what I did…

Toast the English muffin. While it’s toasting, cut the avocado. I make two slices and remove a quarter of it, leaving the rest intact, seed and all. Then I store it in a zip-lock bag with the air sucked out. 

Peel off the avocado skin and smear on the bottom of the toasted English muffin.

According to Nutrition Data, this sandwich is a good source of protein, vitamin A, folate, phosphorus and selenium, and a very good source of vitamin K and manganese. It’s also super filling with its fat, fiber and protein content.

I think I found my new favorite breakfast!

    I need that, sans avocado, in my belly right now.

      I didn't think I'd like avocado on it but I did! Avocado has really grown on me over the last year. I went from hater to looking for ways to eat it.

    yum! I will have to do that. I love avocado toast. I love hard boiled eggs on toast. Why did I never think of combining?!?

    If you boil the egg just for 5 minutes so the white is set but the yolk is half runny, the combination of yolk and avocado is just heaven. Thanks Roni for the brilliant ideas.
