A hand holds a Respectful eggs breakfast sandwich, an English muffin with fried egg and streaky bacon

Classic brekkie muffin

Skip the long queues at your favourite fast-food spot, get comfy at home and feast on our brekkie muffin. Smoked, streaky bacon and gooey cheese in a hearty English muffin, and who could forget the essential ingredient…our planet-loving eggs? We’re here to prove that convenience doesn’t have to cost the Earth or a takeaway trip!

Preparation time

15 minutes




• 3 streaky bacon rashers
• 1 Respectful egg
• 1 English muffin roll
• 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
• 1 teaspoon ketchup or brown sauce (you choose!)


Heat a frying pan, add the bacon rashers, and fry until cooked to your liking. Whilst the rashers are frying, slice the muffin into two halves.

To a separate frying pan, add the vegetable oil to heat, then crack in the egg and pop the muffin halves into your toaster.

Fry the egg until the whites have set and the yolk is runny – perfect for a yolk pop.

Once lightly toasted, remove the muffin halves from the toaster and assemble your brekkie sandwich. Pop your cheese on the bottom, followed by your fried Respectful egg and bacon rashers.

Add a dollop of your favourite ketchup or brown sauce, top with your other muffin half and enjoy!
