My latest lunchtime obsession

For those who know me all too well (i.e., my husband), it's no surprise that I'm currently eating the same lunch day in and day out. This is a cycle I always get into--one week I'm obsessed with a certain cereal (most recent example: Kashi GoLean Crunch!), the next I've moved on to curry tofu wraps. It's never ending, and really a bit maddening.

So, my current lunchtime fave is a homemade concoction that has my hubby scratching his head. Here's what it entails:

1 cinnamon-raisin English muffin (I like Trader Joe's whole wheat 'British muffins'), toasted
2 eggs, sprinkled with salt and pepper and fried (with yolks broken, of course)
a few shavings of a sharp white cheese (manchego, baby!)

I fry the eggs separately while the muffin is toasting. I like my eggs salty and peppery, but you go ahead and do whatever pleases you most. If my husband ate eggs, he'd put about a tablespoon of cayenne pepper on his, but that's another story.

Anyway, when the eggs are done to your liking (I like mine hard), drop them on top of one half of your cinnamon-raisin muffin, sprinkle with a bit of the cheese, and then top with the other muffin half.

I know the cinnamon-raisin and egg combination (and cheese, for that matter) sounds a bit disgusting, but believe me when I say it's not.

I'm sure I'll get over this obsession soon enough, but I certainly won't be tossing away the recipe!
