Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 medium egg
    2 slices reduced calorie whole-wheat bread
    2 tsp butter
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    1 oz cheddar cheese, grated or sliced (or 1 cheese slice)
    1 small tomato, thinly sliced
    3-5 fresh basil leaves, washed and roughly chopped
    1 thin slice of red onion, chopped or sliced in half
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Heat cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat.
Fry the egg (use some cooking spray if necessary to prevent sticking).
As egg cooks, butter one side of each slice of bread, and add mustard to opposite side of one of the slices.
Assemble your sandwich, including the fried egg in this order:
Bread (butter side out)
Cheese
Tomato slices
Basil
Red onion
Salt and pepper to taste
Fried egg
Bread

Heat the sandwich on low to medium heat (in the same skillet you used to fry the egg) until golden-brown. Be careful when flipping the sandwich so that it doesn't fall apart.

Let cool about 1 minute and enjoy!
