Fried Egg and Ham Sandwich

Fried egg and ham sandwich

The egg in this Fried Egg and Ham Sandwich is rich in energy-producing B vitamins and provides the best-quality protein money can buy. What is more, the American Heart Association says three to four yolks a week are all right if your cholesterol levels are normal.


1 teaspoon butter
1 egg
1 whole-wheat English muffin, toasted
1 ounce lean ham
Hot sauce or salsa, optional
1 slice American or Cheddar cheese, optional


In a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, melt the butter.

Crack the egg into a bowl and slide it gently into the skillet so as to avoid breaking the yolk.

Cook 1-1/2 minutes or until egg white is set.

Using a pliable spatula, gently flip and cook another 15 seconds.

Transfer to the muffin, cover with ham, and season with a few drops of hot sauce or a spoonful of salsa, if desired. If using, top with a slice of your preferred cheese.
