  • 1 English toasting muffin
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 1 tbsp spicy refried beans (make sure you choose vegetarian ones)
  • 1/2 small avocado
  • Hot sauce


  • Cut the muffin in half, and lightly toast it.
  • Grease the inside of a food ring (if using), and heat the remaining oil in a frying pan. Crack the egg into the ring, or directly into the pan if not using a ring. Cook over a fairly low heat for about 5 minutes, until the white is mostly cooked through. Remove the ring, then flip the egg for just a couple of seconds, to make sure the white is cooked on top. Leave the yolk runny if you can.
  • While the egg is cooking, place the cheese slice on one half of the muffin.
  • Cook a spoonful of refried beans for a few seconds in the microwave if you'd prefer them to be hot, then add them to the muffin on top of the cheese slice.
  • Mash the avocado flesh, and spread it onto the other half of the muffin.
  • When the egg is cooked, place it on top of the refried beans, and add a dash of hot sauce. Sandwich the two halves together, and serve warm.
