Holiday Fuel with Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Medallions

Posted: 11/17/2011

It's Thanksgiving morning.  You've put the turkey in the oven, set out the bread crumbs for stuffing and have a list of five other dishes to make.  Thankfully, you finished the house cleaning the day before and already have the table set. In about six hours, you'll have thirty people coming in your front door with empty stomachs and countless (priceless?) stories to tell. Exhausted yet? We're not surprised.

It's important to remember to fuel yourself with a good breakfast before all of your Thanksgiving dinner preparations begin and your guests arrive. Yes, you'll likely eat more than your fair share during dinner, but the worst thing you can do - is to skip breakfast.  Don't worry, we've got you covered. With a few simple ingredients, you can whip together a delicious breakfast sandwich. Thanks to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, we have the perfect recipe to share:

Wisconsin Blue Benedict Sandwich

Servings: 4

Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Medallions


5 tablespoons butter, divided
4 eggs
4 1-ounce slices ham
4 wide strips roasted red pepper 
4 English muffins, split (8 halves)
4 1-ounce slices Crave Brothers Fresh Mozzarella Medallions or sliced Fresh Mozzarella
1/3 cup (2 to 3 ounces) Wisconsin Blue Cheese, crumbled

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F. In nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Break 4 eggs into pan; fry 2 to 3 minutes. Flip each egg over; cook 1 additional minute or to taste. Remove from heat. Warm ham slices and roasted red pepper strips in pan, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, toast English muffins and butter each half with remaining butter. Place muffins, buttered side up, on baking sheet. Top 4 halves with warm ham slice, followed by an egg, roasted red pepper and 1 slice Fresh Mozzarella. Sprinkle Blue Cheese over 4 remaining halves. Heat in oven 2 to 3 minutes until cheeses soften. Place Blue Cheese muffin tops on sandwiches; serve.
