1 wholemeal English muffin, sliced in half
1 poached egg 
1 slice of lean roast ham
20g of reduced-fat or "light" medium-hard cheese
2 tsp of low-fat spread
20g of fresh spinach leaves
1 pinch of ground black pepper
Oozing poached egg on a layer of cheese and roast ham – what's not to love about this lower-calorie version of the classic English breakfast muffin?
Preheat the grill. Toast the muffins on the cut sides only. Poach the egg in gently simmering water for 3-4 minutes until the yoke is set but still runny in the middle.
Spread the toasted sides with the low-fat spread and lay on the spinach leaves, ham and cheese. Place the poached egg on one muffin half, season with black pepper, and top with the other half.


  • If you prefer, you can scramble the egg with 4 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk. Pour the mixture into a heated pan. Cook and stir until the eggs are just set.

Or you could try

  • overnight oats – combine oats and apple juice and let it sit overnight in the fridge. In the morning, add low-fat yoghurt, honey to taste, and fresh fruit such as berries.
  • baked eggs – put an egg (with yolk unbroken) and some crème fraîche in a ramekin. Put the ramekin in a baking dish and fill with hot tap water so it comes 3/4 of the way to the top of the ramekin. Bake for 15 minutes or until the egg yolk is set to your liking.
  • healthy full English breakfast – for a healthy version of the king of the morning meal, combining eggs, bacon, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and baked beans, go to our Meal Mixer.
