Walk-Away Breakfast

There are just those mornings when nobody has time to sit down and eat. If you have a toaster, microwave oven and five minutes, you can make this delicious morning meal, wrap it in a paper napkin, and eat it on the road!

My husband loves this served open face on a Sunday morning. He calls it the “egg thing” and it is his most-requested breakfast.

Walk-Away Breakfast (The “Egg Thing”)


2 split English muffins, toasted and lightly buttered

2 round slices of ham or Canadian bacon

2 large eggs

2 slices cheese

1 tbsp butter


Place two muffin halves on a microwave safe plate

Put a slice of ham/Canadian bacon on each muffin half

Melt butter in skillet, taking care to keep heat low so that butter doesn’t brown

Break two eggs into skillet

Break and flatten yolks

Cook until whites are set then turn eggs

Press eggs with back of spatula to flatten

Cook slowly until yolks are cooked

Remove eggs from skillet and drain briefly on paper towelling

Place one egg atop each slice of ham/Canadian bacon

Top each egg with a slice of cheese

Microwave for 30 seconds to soften cheese and heat ham

Place remaining muffin halves on top of cheese to make sandwiches
