How to toast English muffins-
How do you toast your English muffins for breakfast sandwiches? I enjoy toasting my English muffins in the oven. It works much better than a toaster. I add the cheese over the muffins and the cheese melts while the English muffin toasts, turns out perfect. Meanwhile, I slice the remaining and cook the egg, it’s a perfect quick breakfast.
Margherita pizza inspired-
The inspiration for this egg sandwich came from my love for Margherita pizza. It has cheese, fresh tomatoes with basil and a balsamic glaze. I just loved the combination and thought why not try something like with an egg sandwich. It was love at first bite! Truly was. I made it like 3 days in a row and make it on a regular basis now.
If you’ve never tried Margherita pizza from a good restaurant or pizza oven – you are missing out.
How to make a balsamic glaze
I make this wonderful glaze and double the portion. Then, just keep it refrigerated and use as needed. Brown sugar may be substituted with honey if you prefer honey.
Balsamic Glaze Ingredients-
½ cup balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp lightly packed brown sugar
Instructions for Balsamic Glaze-
In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low, simmer until mixture is reduced by half (about 15 minutes), stirring as needed.
Cool glaze completely. Keep refrigerated.
