Egg and Cheese on a Roll

Photo: Oxmoor House

This is a popular grab-and-go breakfast for New Yorkers on the run. Countless variations exist, and we've added one more with our own homemade favorite. Lighten up the cheese and eggs, swap the roll for an English muffin, and doctor the sandwich with ketchup and a healthy dose of hot sauce, just like they do in the Big Apple.

Yield: Serves 1 (serving size: 1 sandwich)
