Recipe Step-By-Step Directions:

Guacamole ingredients in a large glass bowl.

Step 1: Make the guacamole or cook your preferred toppings. My homemade guacamole is not only easy to make but it is totally flavor-packed!

*Note the corn kernels are optional. See below for the recipe!

Cooking the egg using a biscuit cutter to hold the shape of the egg.

Step 2: Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat. I used a large biscuit cutter to hold the shape of the egg so it fits on the gluten free English muffin breakfast sandwich better. You can also use these fancy egg ring molds if you prefer.

TIP: Spray cooking oil on the edges of the biscuit cutter so the egg comes off easily. This also makes cleaning up so much easier!

I let my egg cook sunny side up for the runny egg, but you can separate it and flip it over if you do not like a runny egg.

🔑 Sandi says: You can also bake these eggs! Add an egg to each section of a muffin tin and bake them at 350º F for about 15 minutes, 18 minutes if you don’t like runny eggs.

Step 3: Slice your gluten free English muffin in half on a cutting board. I like to toast mine in the toaster, but you can also put the halves cut side down on the hot frying pan to cook that way.

Step 4: Put the bottom half of the toasted English muffin on a plate. Add your cooked egg and a scoop of homemade guacamole. Don’t forget that I have a ton of topping options below!

I also added broccoli sprouts because they have a nice bite of spice that ties all of the flavors together. Add the top half of the English muffin, and enjoy!!

Make The Guacamole!

Make the guacamole from scratch by adding these ingredients to a large mixing bowl:

  • 3 large avocados
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 1/3 cup corn kernels (optional!)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1/4 cup scallions
  • 2 small limes or 2 TBSP lime juice
  • 2-3 TBSP minced jalapeños
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. 

For the guacamole, add the avocados to a large mixing bowl and mash them! You can mash them to be smooth or chunky. Add the rest of the guacamole ingredients to the bowl and mix well.

Topping Ideas:

  • Drizzle some sriracha sauce over the guacamole for some spice!
  • Give it Southwestern flavor with your favorite salsa, or try this fun Dragon Fruit Salsa recipe.

Egg Baking Instructions:
