Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg - a Perfect Fried Egg Recipe"This was even better than I had expected. It was fast and easy to make. I used fat free ricotta since that was what I had on hand. Yummy!!" – AJ Vogt
Who says you can’t eat a sandwich with a fork? To prepare, preheat your broiler. Coat both sides of bread with cooking spray and broil on each side until lightly toasted. Gently toss 2 cups of arugula, 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil, 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Set your salad aside. In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil. With the skillet still over medium heat, crack 4 eggs into the pan and cook for two minutes. Cover and cook for a couple of minutes more until the whites are set. After removing the eggs from the heat, combine 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 3/4 cup park-skim ricotta cheese, 1 ounce of grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh thyme in a small bowl and spread over your toasted bread slices. Add some of your salad and an egg to each of the bread slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

These sandwiches are too tasty to be true! Over medium-high heat, fry 12 slices of pancetta in a large nonstick skillet until you reach the perfect crispiness. Place the pancetta on paper towels but don’t drain or clean the skillet. In an extra-large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add four bread slices topped with 2 slices of provolone. Add a pinch of black pepper and cook until the cheese melts. While your bread is toasting, heat the skillet used for the pancetta over medium heat. Crack 4 eggs into the skillet and cook until your whites are set but keep your yolks runny! Place 6 pancetta slices and 2 fried eggs on top of each of the cheesy toasts. Add chopped onions, Parmesan cheese and 3 basil leaves. Top with another slice of bread and take a big bite!

Mix 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1 teaspoon of minced parsley, and 1 teaspoon of minced green onions in a small bowl. Add a pinch of salt and pepper and spread onto 1 side of each of your toast slices after you have removed them from the skillet. Using the same skillet as you used for your bacon, fry the eggs over medium-low heat breaking the yolk.

"Though I am not good at cooking, I tried this recipe and I must say it was simple and kinda awesome. Suggested a restaurant owner to add in the menu :)" - Alex
Forget about the hash browns and have a real potato! Bake your potatoes until they’re almost finished, but not quite. Cut off the top of each potato and scoop out the middle with a spoon. Add a ½ tablespoon of butter into your potato bowls followed by a gently broken egg. Top off with the bacon, your favorite cheese, parsley and a little bit of salt and pepper. Place into an oven at 177 degrees Celsius for about 20-25 minutes. This amazingly simple dish will take a bit longer if you are baking your potato specifically for this, but if you have left over baked potatoes from dinner then it’s even easier!
Simple and tasty in 30 minutes!
Whole Egg, Bacon and Avocado QuesadillaSuch a quick, healthy and delicious breakfast! Love it :) – Mary
Easy but perfect, you’ll love this quick dish! Cook your bacon to whatever crispiness your heart desires in a skillet over high heat. Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Also remove the excess fat and any black bits from the skillet. On medium heat, place a flour tortilla in the skillet. Arrange avocado slices around the rim of half of the tortilla effectively creating a ring to prevent the egg from leaking. Crack an egg into the middle of the ring and sprinkle with pieces of your bacon, cheese and a bit of salt and pepper. Fold the empty half of the tortilla over and cook until it’s golden and crispy. Flip but be careful not to spill the tasty contents! Cook again to the same golden color and crispiness. Serve while hot with some salsa for spiciness!
Enjoy this in just 20 minutes!
Who doesn’t love flowers in the morning? Now you can eat them! To make your breakfast flowers, start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Then spray 8 large muffin cups with a layer of oil and put a wonton wrapper into each cup. Add a second wonton wrapper but at an angle so that the edges of the two wrappers create your flower. Sprinkle a teaspoon of grated parmesan cheese into each cup followed by a gently broken egg. Top with diced ham, the sliced shallots and sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until you have golden wrappers and your eggs are set. Enjoy!
Only 15-20 minutes for your fun treat!
Poached Eggs Caprese"Loved it! This is a definite make-again!" - Cynthia
A tasty twist on eggs Benedict! After boiling 2-3 inches of water in a large saucepan over high heat, reduce to medium-low and add the vinegar and 2 teaspoons of salt. Don’t let it get too hot, just a gentle simmer. On each half of an English muffin, place a slice of mozzarella cheese and a slice of tomato, however thick you would like. Toast in a toaster oven until your cheese is soft and the muffin is toasted. Should only be about 5 minutes. Crack an egg into the bowl and very gently slip the egg into the simmering water. Add the other three eggs in the same manner and poach until your whites are firm and your yolks are thick or approximately 2-3 minutes. Take the egg out of the water using a slotted spoon and remove any excess water with a clean towel. Place the perfectly poached egg onto the English muffin with a spoon fool of pesto on each egg. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and your caprese is ready!

That’s right, we’re going to poach the egg in our salsa! Once the egg white has set, remove from the heat and serve on a tortilla.
