English-Muffin Egg Pizzas


Protein-rich. Meat-free. Ready in less than 10 minutes. This genius trick for using up leftover hard-boiled eggs proves so delicious, we often find ourselves making a batch solely for the purpose of preparing these mini-pizzas. First, hard-cook two eggs. (One of our favorite methods involves a steamer basket for gentle cooking.) Peel and slice the eggs, then place them atop a few English muffin-halves, along with a glug of olive oil, sliced tomato, and shredded mozzarella before toasting. Little ones love these open-faced sandwiches for a snack or a meal—but, in truth, kids of all ages scarf these cheese melts down.
