Fancy Egg McMuffin
This past Saturday, I had big plans to bribe my husband with breakfast to get him to help me clean the house. After seeing Mark Bittman's Baked Eggs on Cheap Healthy Good, I knew that they would be perfect: slightly different, very appealing, and easy enough for a Saturday morning. Unfortunately, I also forgot that my oven was broken. Back to the drawing board.
I remembered some prosciutto I had in the refrigerator that I had bought on sale. I knew I wanted to use eggs, English muffins, and prosciutto, and I remembered how my dad would make us homemade Egg McMuffins on holiday mornings. So I fried some eggs, toasted the English muffins, and placed a slice of prosciutto on top of the muffin halves, under the eggs. I meant to use a little basil as well but forgot. All of that was topped with some mozzarella cheese.
Is there anything better than soaking up a little runny yolk with toasted bread?
