Fluffy Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

I enjoy a good fried egg sandwich, or an English muffin sandwich, or something similar for an occasional breakfast. For the past week or so, I had an idea in my head of something I wanted to do to change it up a bit, and I finally went through with it today.

I started by putting a metal bowl in the refrigerator. I wanted it to be a little cold for whipping up some egg whites. I separated the yolks and whites from two eggs. I then added approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of milk into the egg yolks and mixed that together. I then whisked the egg whites until they were nice and airy, but not forming peaks. Once these were both done, I put the heat to medium high to get my pan warmed up.

I gently folded the egg yolks and the egg whites together. Once those were combined, I added in both sides of an English muffin that had been split. I made sure to get all sides thoroughly covered with the mixture.

The pan was hot enough at this point, so I poured in the egg mix and then gently placed the English muffin in the pan, interior side down. I covered the pan and let this cook for about 2 minutes.

I flipped it over and thought it looked even better than I was expecting. I covered this again and let it cook for another 2 minutes.

I turned off the heat, added a slice of cheddar cheese and covered it for another minute to get the cheese nice and melted.

I closed it up and it was all ready to be devoured.

I decided to slice it in half just so you could see how it looked on the inside. I thought this was a delicious breakfast sandwich. It might have been better with some bacon or sausage in the middle, but it was still very tasty. Although the English muffin had been smothered in the egg mixture, it was not mushy or soggy on the outside. The eggs were light and fluffy, and provided a nice texture when biting into the sandwich. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be making this again. This was a very positive start to what will be a very hot weekend.

Molli’s Cafe – Westminster, MD – 04/25/20

While I was up in Westminster, I not only got my coffee drink from Birdie’s, but I wanted to get something to eat. I have walked by Molli’s Cafe several times, but never actually went inside. I had decided last week that I wanted to go here, and I was able to do it today.

I was thinking along the lines of something portable, so I decided to go with their Biggins’ Breakfast. Egg, sausage and cheese on my choice of bread, and I decided to go with whole wheat. This was sort of a double sandwich. The sausage was sandwiched between two eggs, as well as the bread. So it was a nice surprise for me. The whole wheat bread was a nice change of pace for me, and it worked well with this sandwich. This was a good first visit to Molli’s Cafe, and I look forward to going back there again. They have some Waffle Sandwiches on their breakfast menu, and I would definitely want to give those a try. This was another continuation to a great Saturday morning and it continued to keep me in a positive frame of mind.

Kismet Cafe – Eldersburg, MD – 3/20/20

Since I’ve been trying to support local small businesses this week, I thought I would make my way over to Kismet Cafe for breakfast and a coffee drink. I’ve gotten back into the habit of making my own four days a week, so having a treat day works. Kismet Cafe opens at 6AM, so I made sure to head down there when they were opened, and then I had time to quickly have breakfast at home before I started my work day.

I decided to do something a little different for breakfast this morning. When I’ve gotten food from Kismet Cafe before, I would only get a toasted bagel with cream cheese. I ordered a sunrise sandwich with egg, sausage, and cheddar cheese on a Challah bagel. I really like the Challah bagel, and the texture was perfect for this sandwich. The sausage had a really nice flavor. The eggs had great consistency. Not too hard and not too fluffy. The melted cheese gave it the extra little oomph. A great start to the morning, and a breakfast sandwich I will order again.

I also ordered a peanut butter mocha Kismeccino. This is a frozen coffee drink, and it was made right. It was a bit too dark and foggy to take a picture in front of the sign at the store, so I took one with one of my wall decorations inside my house.

When I walked into the store, they let me know that they were really appreciative that I stopped in. The positive feelings that they had made the start of my day great. The food and coffee drink made it even better!
