    #RecipeSaviours: English Breakfast Muffin

    • 1 min read
    It’s the perfect meal to kick-start your day

    It’s the most important meal of the day and it’s just gotten a whole lot more special. With pregnancy superfoods including egg, spinach and lean meat, you can’t go wrong. 


    Serves: Just you!
    Time: 10 minutes prep; 5 minutes cooking
    Good for: Protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, iron, minerals 


    1 wholemeal English muffin, sliced in half
    1 poached egg
    1 slice lean roast ham
    20g reduced-fat or "light" medium-hard cheese
    2 tsp low-fat spread
    20g fresh spinach leaves
    1 pinch ground black pepper 


    • Preheat the grill. Toast the muffins on the cut sides only.
    • Poach the egg in gently simmering water for 4-5 minutes until the yoke is cooked through. (If you prefer scrambled, do that instead.)
    • Spread the toasted sides with the low-fat spread and lay on the spinach leaves, ham and cheese.
    • Place the poached egg on one muffin half, season with black pepper and top with the other muffin half.

      And that’s that! Buon appetito!
