Eggstraordinary Breakfast Sandwich

I recently posted about how much I love the Egg White Delight at McDonalds and how the white cheddar on it is simply amazing.  Well, sorry McDonald's, but I just one-uped you!  White cheddar may be good and all, but it's nothing compared to triple cream brie!

This sandwich was a couple breakfasts in the making.  I discovered months ago how wonderful brie is when lightly melted into an English muffin, but earlier this week, since we ran out of cheddar, I discovered how absolutely sinful brie tastes when added to an omelet.  So, if brie is great on an English muffin and brie is great in an omelet, that means brie in an omelet would be great on an English muffin, right?  Yes.  Yes, that is absolutely correct.

A typical breakfast sandwich (at least at fast-food chains) usually includes an English muffin, egg, cheese and some sort of breakfast meat, like sausage or Canadian bacon.  My thought?  Why not use turkey pepperoni instead?  Yes.  Yes, that was a good idea.

My husband and I shared this open-faced breakfast sandwich today, and it is simply amazing if I do say so myself.  The brie is so buttery delicious that it makes the sandwich taste so much more caloric than it really is.  Since this sandwich is eaten open-faced, it easily serves two people, and each serving only has about 150 calories.  Yeah.  You know you want to eat this!

Eggstraordinary Breakfast Sandwich
Servings: 2

1 multi-grain English muffin
1 egg
1 tbsp water
1 ounce triple cream brie
8 slices turkey pepperoni
spray butter (like, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)
Pam butter-flavor cooking spray
salt and pepper to taste

Cut the English muffin in half and toast in the toaster on medium.

Meanwhile, spray the Pam in a non-stick frying pan and heat to medium.  Mix the egg and the water in a small bowl.  Pour the mixture in the frying pan, turning the pan so that the egg fills the bottom of the pan.  Let the egg cook until almost set.  Cut the brie into small pieces and scatter the pieces evenly on top of the egg.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and let egg cook until set.  

Your English muffin should've popped up from the toaster by now.  Put the English muffin cut-side up on two plates, and spray the insides with spray butter.  Put 4 pieces of pepperoni on top of each English muffin.

Back to the frying pan, fold your egg in half to make an omelet.  Let cook for 30 seconds or so, and then cut the omelet in half.  Drape half of the omelet on top of each English muffin.

Happy eating!
