Ingredients
 
 

  • 6 whole, English muffins
  • 6 thin slices Canadian bacon
  • 6 slices American cheese or cheddar cheese
  • 6 medium eggs, separated
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • Using a 2.5” circle cutter, cut holes from the center of each English muffin.
  • Remove muffin holes, slice bottom third of each hole and place back into the bottom of each muffin.
  • Transfer muffins to a baking sheet, lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat, and brush each muffin with butter.
  • Press a half cheese slice into each muffin well and top with a slice of Canadian bacon, followed by the remaining half slices of cheese (making sure to press into the center so a well remains in the middle of the muffin).
  • Carefully pour an egg white into each well and bake for about 15 minutes or until muffins have toasted, cheese has melted and whites have just barely set.
  • Remove muffins from oven and top each with an egg yolk.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 375˚F and bake English muffins for an additional 5 minutes, so the yolks are still runny (bake for 10 minutes for a solid yolk).
  • Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Lightly season with salt and pepper and serve.

Notes

Sandwiches can be partially made ahead of time by cutting out the centers of the English muffins and filling them with ham and cheese. Place onto a baking sheet and tightly wrap in plastic wrap for up to a day. When ready to serve, crack and egg into each muffin, bake and serve.
