Perfect Egg Sandwich

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, November Fall 2006


  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 toasted English muffin, or a 3-inch piece soft baguette, split
  • Cooked bacon (optional)
  • Cooked sausage patty (optional)
  • Grated Gruyere (optional)
  • Chopped fresh herbs, such as chives, parsley, or basil (optional)


  1. Heat butter in a small nonstick skillet until melted. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with a pinch of salt. Add egg mixture to skillet.

  2. Using a heatproof rubber spatula, gently pull the egg away from the sides of the skillet toward the center. As the eggs start to set, stir them gently until curds form, about 2 minutes.

  3. When egg is completely set, fold the egg into quarters and place on the bottom half of the English muffin or baguette. Add cheese, bacon, sausage, or herbs, as desired; top with remaining half of English muffin or baguette.
