Corned Beef Breakfast Sandwich

My corned beef breakfast sandwich got its inspiration from the cafeteria where I work. This sandwich is made with corned beef, honey mustard, Swiss cheese, and a fried egg. It is somewhat like McDonald’s Egg McMuffin but served up Irish style.

I wished I was more of a morning person. I find it ironic I wake up early, but have zero desire to actually cook breakfast. Five days a week I have breakfast at the cafeteria at work, well actually I have breakfast at my desk. The last week or two they have been serving up corned beef inspired meals. This breakfast sandwich is surprisingly good. It is even better when made at home.

How I made this sandwich slightly different than the original I heated my corned beef in the skillet. This allowed the corned beef to brown slightly. I made an over-easy egg that had a runny yolk instead of the scrambled egg that they added. I find it hard to beat slightly runny egg yolk. I also toasted the English muffin for a nice little crunch.
