  • 1 – English muffin
  • 2 – large eggs
  • 1/3 cup – milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon – black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon – chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon – ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons – green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons – red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup – shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 slice – reduced-sodium deli ham, sliced in half
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced

Pair each serving with:
8-ounce glass of milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine eggs, 1/3 cup milk, pepper, chili powder, and cumin and whisk well. Stir in diced bell peppers.

Heat medium nonstick pan or skillet over medium heat. Transfer egg mixture to the pan or skillet and stir for 4-5 minutes until eggs are scrambled and fully cooked. Slice English muffin in half so that there are two slices. On top of each slice, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese, one of the half slices of ham, half of the scrambled egg mixture, and half of the sliced avocados.

Place sandwiches on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 5-8 minutes until cheese is melty and ham is heated through. Serve immediately along with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk.
