Breakfast on the Run


  • 4 tbsp. apple butter

  • 2 tbsp. Dijon-style mustard

  • 3 whole-wheat English muffins, split and lightly toasted

  • 6 1/2-oz. slices low-fat, cracked black pepper ham, chopped

  • 2 tbsp. minced green onion (scallion) tops

  • 3 oz. low-fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


In a small bowl, combine apple butter and mustard. Spread 1 tablespoon mixture on each muffin half.

In another small bowl, combine ham, onion, and cheese. Spread each muffin half with this mixture.

Place muffin halves on a baking sheet and broil in the oven until the topping is bubbly. (Both mixtures may be prepared in advance and stored separately for a quick breakfast.)
