Open Faced Cheesy Pepperoni English Muffins Topped with A Fried Egg and Marinara Sauce


This is another one of my hubby’s creations. It turned out really good, but to be honest, we really didn’t
know what to call this one. It’s not really a pizza…ok maybe a reverse pizza? This is a really simple and quick lunch or dinner.. or even breakfast if you desire. It’s layered with cheese, pepperoni, a fried egg then topped with marinara sauce. This one does require a knife and fork, but it’s worth it when you first cut into the gorgeous egg and the yolk spills all of that tasty goodness onto the muffin. Heaven.

Here’s what you need to make your own:

*English muffins

*shredded cheese; I used a cheddar and Colby Jack blend

*pepperoni

*eggs, one per each half muffin

*2 tsp. canola oil

*salt and pepper to taste

*marinara sauce; jarred or homemade

Preheat oven to 400°

In a small sauce pan, heat up the marinara sauce.

Separate the muffins and place on a baking sheet.

Sprinkle the cheese over the English muffins.

Layer the pepperoni over the cheese.

Place in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and the muffins are lightly toasted around the edges; about 3 to 5 minutes.

While the English muffins are in the oven heat a non stick pan on medium high heat and add the oil. When the pan is hot, crack the eggs into the pan.

Cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny; season with salt and pepper.

Take the English muffins off of the baking sheet and place on serving plates. Carefully place an egg onto each half muffin over the pepperoni.

Top with the marinara sauce.

Enjoy!
