1 tbsp unsalted butter softened, divided
1 English muffin, split
1 slice Enterprise Bacon
1 large egg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 slice cheese
- Spread 1 teaspoon butter on each half of the English muffin and place halves in a 10-inch nonstick or cast iron pan over medium heat. Cook, swirling muffin halves and pressing gently to get good contact with pan, until both pieces are well browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a sheet of aluminum foil, split side up.
- Melt remaining 1 teaspoon butter in the now-empty pan and increase heat to medium-high. Add bacon and cook, turning frequently, until browned and crisp around the edges, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer bacon to lower muffin half.
- Place a quart-sized wide mouth Mason jar lid (both the lid and the sealing ring) upside down in the now-empty pan. (The side the jar screws onto should be facing up.) Spray the inside with nonstick cooking spray and break egg into it. Poke the egg yolk with a fork to break it and season with salt and pepper. Pour 3/4 cup water into the pan, cover, and cook until egg is set, about 2 minutes.
- Using a thin spatula, transfer Mason jar lid to a paper towel - lined plate. Pour excess water out of the pan and return it to the stovetop with the heat off. Flip Mason jar lid over and gently remove it to release egg. Place egg on top of bacon and top with cheese slice. Close sandwich, wrap in aluminum foil, and return to the now-empty pan. Let it warm up in the pan for 2 minutes with the heat off, flipping occasionally. Unwrap and serve immediately.
