Italian Breakfast Sandwich

This is a new take on your typical breakfast sandwich, one in which I welcome :) It's super fast and easy! I made a few variations from the original recipe and spiced it up a bit!


2 teaspoons olive oil

1 large egg

Salt and pepper

1 slice fresh bread (I used jalapeno cheddar -- sourdough is also delicious)

1 garlic clove

1 slice of prosciutto

1/4 cup warm tomato sauce/pizza sauce

parmesan (optional for topping)


Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a heavy small skillet over medium heat. Crack the egg into the skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the white is firm and the yolk is almost set, about 4 minutes. Season with salt. Meanwhile, toast the bread until golden brown. Rub the garlic over the toast. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Spoon the marinara sauce over the Parmesan. Top with a slice of prosciutto and the egg. Serve open faced.
