Breakfast Sandwich with Egg, Caramelized Maple Apples, and Cheddar

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes


2 sliced apples, caramelized
15 ml (1 tbsp) butter
30 ml (2 tbsp) maple syrup
7 ml (1/2 tbsp) white vinegar
4 to 8 eggs
4 slices Les Grains St-Méthode Whole Oat Bread
120 g (4 oz) aged cheddar, sliced
375 ml (1½ cups) arugula
Freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. In a pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat; add the apple slices and cook for 5 minutes. Add the maple syrup; warm for 30 seconds and remove from heat.
  2. In a pot, bring some water to a boil with the vinegar and salt. One by one, crack the eggs and carefully drop them into the simmering water; cook for 4 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel to drain.
  3. Toast the slices of bread.
  4. Top each slice of toast with cheddar, maple caramelized apples, arugula, and one or two poached eggs.
  5. Add pepper to taste and serve immediately.
For breakfast on the go, switch out the poached eggs for eggs over hard and serve between two slices of toast.
