This is a popular grab-and-go breakfast for New Yorkers on the run. Countless variations exist, and I’ve added one more with my own homemade favorite. I lighten up the cheese and eggs, swap the roll for an English muffin, and doctor the sandwich with ketchup and a healthy dose of hot sauce, just like they do in the Big Apple.

|1 large egg||1 English muffin, split and toasted|
|1 large egg white||1 teasoon canola oil|
|dash of salt||3/4 teaspoon ketchup|
|2 slices reduced fat cheddar cheese||1/8 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)|
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.
Place 1 cheese slice on top of each muffin half. Place muffin halves on a baking sheet. Broil 1 minute or until cheese melts.
Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add egg mixture to pan; cook without stirring until mixture sets on bottom. Draw a spatula across bottom of pan to form curds. Continue drawing spatula across bottom of pan until egg mixture is slightly thick, but still moist; do not stir constantly. Remove from pan immediately and place on muffin bottom.
Spread ketchup over cheese on muffin top. Sprinkle egg with hot sauce, if desired, and cover with muffin top. Serve immediately.
