That was me today. A very light lunch consisting of butternut squash soup, frozen from my last batch and saved, and some left over birthday cake for dessert. By the I was home with the kids bouncing at my sides I needed to fix a quick snack. Enter the egg McMidnitechef.
Make it simple or fancy with fresh tomato and avocado slices.
Toast some English Muffins. Sear some black forest ham. You know, I was thinking about how I used to think that black forest ham meant it was related to the cake. But that’s not exactly right, now is it? It occurred to me that this name probably has more to do with the Black Forest in Germany. Germans love their pig. And chocolate with cherry liquor. Um… where was I?
Scramble 1 egg for each McMidnitechef plus one extra, in my case I used 3 large eggs for two servings. Add some sharp cheddar cheese and let it melt.
Stack tomato slices, ham, avocado, then the cheesy eggs on the warm muffins. Enjoy with your favorite beverage, I suggest coffee or orange juice.
