How to Make an Eggwich
Another dish brought to you by my mom.
Years before the fast food chains had them on their menus my mom had the idea. Too late for the copy wrights but still worth the bragging rights. Yes its the ever popular Eggwich. That is here name and since she came up with it the name has stuck. I am just the one that makes them and spreads the goodness around.
In fact I just shared them with one of our house guests. The hard part now is for him to decide will it be an eggwich or a peanut butter and fluff or an eggwich. At this point it will be the PB&F as we are out of English muffins for the next couple of days. No he does not want it with just plain bread. It needs an English muffin.
With any luck you are getting hungry and wish to keep reading. So please read on and get ready to have a snack or even the beginnings of a meal.

The poaching of the egg is how my mom used to do it.
For one egg I use a 4-Ounce cup. For two eggs it is the 6-Ounce cup.
I tend to use a fork.
Others will use a spoon.
Either way you look at it these are both used to separate the egg from the glass bowl. Also a way to help clean the egg from the bowl. Of course you could also try a little butter or anti stick spray on the glass bowl.
This is the toaster that we use. With several people in the family it gets plenty of use and has kept up with the demand.
We use a microwave with the same stats as this one for preparing the eggs.
The Ingreedients - For Your Eggwich
Prep Time: About 1 minute
Total Time: About 3 minutes
- 1 Egg
- 1 Englush Muffin or 2 slices of toast
- 1 Slice of Chese
- 1 Slice of Ham or other meat
- English muffin or bread in the toaster for what ever setting you prefer. I usually go for the half way setting on our toaster.
- Crack the egg in to the Pyrex bowl and break the yolk. Then get it mixed together. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds power 6. Then 30 seconds power 5. Then 30 seconds power 4. Lastly 20 seconds power 3. This works for us. Your timing and power settings may vary. (This was prepared using a 1,000 watt microwave over.)
- Place the egg on the English muffin. Lay the ham on the egg. Then lay the cheese on the ham. Finally place the other part of the English muffin on top. Press down.
- Let the eggwich sit for a few moment while the cheese melts. While you are doing so clean out the Pyrex bowl to clear off the bits of egg that stayed attached.
- Enjoy your Eggwich
