Having a yummy breakfast that you can grab & go for busy mornings makes the start to your day so much easier. These Breakfast English Muffins are simple to prepare, packed with protein and healthy fats and has the yummiest sauce.
Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Eggs: I buy organic free range eggs. They are a great source of protein and are also high in vitamins and minerals.
Spinach: A leafy vegetable high in vitamins A, C, K1, calcium and iron.
Avocado: One of my favorite healthy fats, avocados are high in monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber and potassium. Monounsaturated fats help reduce bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Cheddar and gruyere cheese: I buy mine from Trader Joe’s and I absolutely love this cheese! Regular cheddar or your favorite cheese will work great here, too.
How to Make Breakfast English Muffins
Eggs & Bacon:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. You will cook both the eggs and the bacon at this temperature. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk to break up the yolks. Pour in milk and whisk again to combine. Finely chop the spinach and add to bowl. Pour egg mixture into a deep greased oven pan and place in oven. Place bacon on a separate baking sheet and make sure the pieces are spread out enough to ensure they aren’t overlapping. Place in oven. Both the eggs and bacon will cook for 15-20 minutes.
I absolutely love homemade guac! This recipe is super easy and very flavorful. Slice the avocado, remove seed, scoop out flesh and place in a bowl. Squeeze lime juice, add cilantro, green onion, sea salt and pepper and mix.
Place sauce ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix.
Assembling the Sandwiches:
Using the top of a mason jar or circular cookie cutter, press down into eggs to cut a circle and repeat this 6 times. Using a spatula, remove the egg circles and place on bottom of english muffin. Top with bacon, cheese, guacamole and sauce. Place other half of english muffin on top and you’re all set!
Storing Breakfast English Muffins:
These muffins store very well and are great for meal prep. Simply place the assembled sandwich (minus avocado) in aluminum foil, roll, tuck in sides and roll again. If you are eating the sandwich within the next 2-3 days, place in the fridge. If not, place in the freezer and they will last for 2 months.
Reheating Breakfast English Muffins
Remove from foil, wrap in a paper towel and place in microwave. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Add avocado and you’re all set!
