Easiest Egg Sandwich

Beat an egg with a little cheese in a cup or ramekin and it will puff like a souffle in the microwave. Slip it onto a lightly buttered, toasted English muffin for a snack that's super-fast, hot and delicious.

      Break the egg into a microwave-safe cup or ramekin, add the water and beat with a fork (the water helps loosen the egg and makes it puffier when it cooks). Stir in the grated cheese and salt.

    • 2

      Microwave the egg on high for about 45 seconds, until it puffs and rises.

    • 3

      Toast the English muffin and spread each half with butter. Scoop the egg onto the bottom half (it will deflate a little) and top it with the other muffin half.
