The breakfast sandwich of champions.
That is exactly how I would describe this sandwich.
It's nothing new. I think I saw it on Peanut Butter Fingers first and then it popped up on a few others blogs. It wasn't long before it seemed like everyone was eating these sandwiches. You know how the blogosphere works with certain food trends; it gets picked up on one and then all of a sudden everyone and their distant Aunt in Portland seem to be making it.
At first glance I said that there was no way that I would ever make it. I mean, who puts jam on their eggs? And use cheese that isn't cheddar? No, thank you.
Well, I'm a sucker for a trend and after seeing it pop up on yet another blog I decided to give it a try. I threw together the sandwich, added some canadian bacon for good measure (because canadian bacon makes everything better) and crossed my fingers.
I now eat this about four times a week and go through eggs and canadian bacon quicker than IHOP.
Breakfast Sandwich of Champions (aka Egg-Ham-Cheese-Jam sandwich)

1 egg, beat
1 slice canadian bacon
1 slice cheese (mozzarella, provolone, havarti, etc)
1 tbsp strawberry/raspberry jam
Toast the english muffin.
Meanwhile, heat the saute pan and beat your egg. Put the bacon in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove the bacon and add scramble the egg. Assemble all ingredients on the english muffin and stuff-yo-face.
