Since I was a little kid, I’ve loved egg sandwiches. My mom made them typically on an English muffin with an egg and monterrey jack cheese. They were soooo good.
Anytime I can get eggs and cheese together I’m pretty darn happy. When I came across fig butter (it’s basically jam) at Trader Joe’s, I was intrigued and wondered how I would use it.
And then it came to me – a little mozzarella, an egg, this would be my new fave egg sandwich!
The flavors go so well together. The mildness of the mozzarella is a perfect companion for the fig butter. You can use any type of bread you want, including an English muffin!
Hope you love it!
2 slices mozzarella cheese (depends on the size of your bread, basically you want the cheese to cover the entire surface area of BOTH slices of bread)
2 slices of bread (I used this grain-free bread, but you can totally use whatever you’d like!)
2 tbsp. fig butter
1-2 tbsp. butter
Heat a skillet to low heat. It will take several minutes for the cheese to melt, but if the temperature is too high, the bread will be browned and the cheese still won’t be melted. Go low and slow! Add the cheese slices to BOTH sides of the bread.Meanwhile, crack an egg into a bowl. Microwave covered (or it will explode, I use a paper towel) for 30-45 seconds on medium (level 5 on my microwave). I don’t microwave it on high because it can very quickly be overcooked. I’d start with 30 seconds, check it, and see if it’s cooked to your liking.Add the egg to one side of the sammy and spread fig butter on the other side. Once cheese is mostly melted, I close the sammy and then continue to let it cook a little longer, flipping occasionally. Once the cheese is melted, you’re ready to eat!
