English Muffin Egg Pizza Breakfast Sandwiches

"A hearty breakfast." 
 
That's what I would label these open-faced breakfast sandwiches, except when you usually consider something hearty, the word "unhealthy" can be synonymous...not so with this easy breakfast pizza. 

How can you make a hearty breakfast healthy?  A couple ways...

First, use whole wheat English Muffins to up the fiber and whole grains.  Next, add some tomato marinara (vegetables as a part of breakfast!).  Third, add some sauteed vegetables, if you think this will fly with your kids (R did kale, G did no veggies).  If you're concerned about cholesterol, use egg whites.  Then, top with just a touch of low-fat shredded cheese.  Last, serve with some fresh fruit.

Voila!  Hearty into healthy.  Easy breezy.

English Muffin Egg Pizza Breakfast Sandwiches

3 whole wheat English Muffins
1/2 cup tomato marinara or spaghetti sauce
sauteed vegetables (mushrooms, greens, zucchini, peppers and broccoli would all work), if desired
4 eggs or 8 egg whites
pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese, if desired

First, toast the English Muffins and place on a oven-safe baking sheet.

Preheat the oven broiler.

Top each English Muffin with a generous 1 tablespoon of marinara, and top with vegetables, if desired.



Scramble the eggs in a saute pan, sprinkling with a dash of salt and pepper, and then top each English Muffin with 1/6 of the eggs and then a generous tablespoon of cheese, if using.


Place under the oven broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Serve with fruit and breakfast is served!


Hearty=Healthy.

You just served yourself or your family a breakfast* to start your day off right!

Life is sweet,

*Also wonderful when "breakfast for dinner" is on the menu.

Oh Gina, I forgot to mention your recipe...do you want me to edit to do so? An honest oversight...

We love this idea, and I love getting veggies in my older son before school!

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
