Hard Boiled Egg Breakfast Melts

Hi friends sorry for my lack of posting lately. I have been busy behind the scenes cleaning up a few things and also working on a new header design. It just made its debut today so let me know whatcha think!

Now onto breakfast…

Weekends are all about eggs in this house: scrambled eggs, omelets, breakfast sandwiches – you name it. I always tend to lean toward eggs and not toward pancakes or waffles because i feel like eating eggs is much more substantial than say, stuffing your face with carbs. No matter how fluffy and delicious those carbs may be.

Most of the breakfast sandwiches I make have fried eggs or scrambled eggs so i thought i would mix it up this time and try hard boiled. It takes an extra step but you can boil the eggs in advance to save precious time.

Hard Boiled Egg Breakfast Melt

These sandwiches can be made with any breakfast-y ingredients you want. I used cream cheese, hard boiled eggs, roma tomatoes, and avocado all topped with a mexican shredded cheese blend and a smear of sriracha. Let’s face it, eggs and sriracha were made for one another. They complete each other!

Just place all of your ingredients on top of 1/2 of a toasted english muffin. I used organic whole wheat english muffins from whole foods which are my absolute favorite. Then place in the oven and broil for 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.

If you hard boil the eggs in advance you’ll have a healthy, filling breakfast in under 15 minutes. Bonus points: it looks pretty too. I’m loving the greens and reds.

Not too shabby.
