Crisp, buttery English muffins topped with tomatoes, eggs and gooey cheese are on the menu today! These protein-packed bites make the perfect weekend breakfast!
If there were any breakfast I’d say all of us take comfort in, it would be an English muffin. Hot, buttery and perfectly soft yet crisp, you can never go wrong with those nooks and crannies. Pile ’em high with fresh tomatoes, fluffy eggs and a few delicious fixin’s, and you just described what I’d like to wake up to every Sunday morning!
Well, that and someone feeding them to me while also fanning me with a giant leaf. In bed. In pajamas. With my favorite trashy show on TV.
Yes, that would ideal.
Honestly, these savory tomato, egg and cheese pizzas made for the MOST scrumptious breakfast I’ve had lately! Just toast your English muffin (try my homemade whole wheat muffin recipe) to a gorgeous golden brown and slather on bits of butter. Normally, I’d say stop right here. With butter and jam, any English muffin is simply deee-vine. But, we’re about to make them even better.
Stir up a skillet full of scrambled eggs, and while they’re sizzling, chop your tomato. Pile it onto the muffins, top with your eggs-cellent (I had to) eggs, and you know what comes next! The good stuff. Topped with a sprinkle of cheddar, pepperoni and green onions, these breakfast bites are total crowd pleasers. Or, you know, a crowd of one. That’s what I prefer.
Don’t be like me… enjoy these with someone special this weekend!
