Cracking Eggs, Breaking Glass

I risked life and limb to bring you this perfect breakfast sandwich.

Ok, not life but definitely limb. This morning I'm in my teeny tiny galley kitchen cooking up one of my faves, the prosciutto and egg muffin. Since my kitchen is so small everything is in arms reach, which is good for multi tasking: toast the muffin, crack the egg, open the fridge for prosciutto, close fridge with foot while pouring coffee...knock bloody mary spice mix of fridge shelf, crashing onto floor, glass breaking and contents gushing out, leap over carnage just barely missing large shard of glass while flipping egg in the pan one handed...phew, that was a close one! Perfect sandwich and no blood! (this time)
Prosciutto & Egg Sandwich
Slice of prosciutto
English muffin
Mixed greens for garnish

Toast the muffin. Preheat a small frying pan with a bit of butter. Crack the egg into a separate bowl. Carefully place the egg into the pan. Cook until desired doneness, flip and repeat. Assemble your sandwich with egg, prosciutto and greens.
