Murray's Breakfast Melt

Named one of the top breakfast sandwiches in New York, this melt from Murray's Cheese is simply a delight.

  • servings: 1




  • 1 ounce Fontina Fontal cheese
  • 2 slices extra-smoky, extra-thick cut bacon
  • 1 English muffin, split
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg


  1. Step 1

    Place cheese in freezer until well chilled, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, place bacon on a griddle over medium-high heat; cook until crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  2. Step 2

    Remove cheese from freezer, cut two slices, and grate remaining cheese on the largest holes of a box grater; set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Place English muffin split-side down in skillet; cook until toasted. Turn and top each half with a slice of cheese. Reduce heat and cook until cheese is melted. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Step 4

    Melt butter on griddle; crack egg onto melted and fry until whites are set; turn and top egg with grated cheese; continue cooking until yolk has reached desired degree of doneness.

  5. Step 5

    Carefully transfer egg to large muffin half. Top egg with bacon and sandwich with remaining muffin half; serve immediately.
