This is one of my favorite sandwiches. I sometimes eliminate the salsa.It makes a great sandwich for lunch.

These can be made with real eggs, too. I make mine in a coffee cup with a saucer to cover, just in case they explode a bit (which they frequently do). You can either scramble them by mixing right in the cup or unscrambled, but it is a good idea to break the yolk before microwaving. The cooking method I use is to add a dash of water in the cup and add egg (poked yolk or scrambled), season as you wish, then microwave on high for 1 minute and 20 seconds. Run a knife around the cup to loosen egg and serve on a toasted english muffin that is thinly spread with miracle whip. Cheese slices and bacon or ham or sausage just make them even better. Breakfast in 10 minutes or less. Wonderful!
