This is super basic but still really stands out amongst breakfast yummies. It’s perfect for those morning when you can’t decide between an omelet or pancakes.
I’ve heard you can only get, or used to only be able to get, pork roll (taylor ham) in Jersey, because the standard for meat is really low there. So if that’s the case, you could use any salty breakfast meat. Bacon, sausage, ham, vegan “meat”… But if you have access to pork roll, I’d go for that. It’s really awesome.
- 1 egg
- 2 slices pork roll
- ½ English muffin, cinnamon raisin
- 1 slice cheez, pretty much of your choice, I’m using American
- Maple syrup, grade b preferably, just not
- Salt & pepper
- Non-stick frying pan for eggs, with lid, or some aluminum foil
- Frying pan for meat
Start cooking your pork roll as per box instructions, or pretty much exactly like how you’d cook bacon; on med/hi heat.
When done to your liking, transfer to a few paper towels, for degreasing.
While pork roll is cooking, start egg. Heat non-stick frying pan on med heat for about 30 seconds. For more control, I’d recommend first cracking egg into a small bowl and then pouring it in. Also, if you hold your frying pan at a slight angle, and the pan is hot, it’s easier to get your egg to stay where you want it.
Cover with lid, or use a piece of aluminum foil to lay over the pan. We want the heat to stay in, and cook the egg on top too.
Toast English muffin.
When egg looks pretty close to being done to your liking (I like mine a little runny, but, ya know) place slice of cheez over egg and replace lid or aluminum foil, till cheez melts. Should take only seconds.
Plate English muffin, pouring some maple syrup on it. Then pork roll, egg and cheez. Top with salt and pepper, and maybe add a bit more maple syrup to the plate.
