“Packed with protein and lower in carbs, these ham and egg breakfast sandwiches with guacamole will keep you full all day.”


    • ½ medium avocado, peeled (see Tip)
    • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion tops
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 whole grain English muffins, split and toasted
    • ¾ cup packaged fresh baby spinach
    • 2 ounces thin sliced lower sodium honey ham, such as Hillshire Farm®
    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons fresh pico de gallo, salsa, or salsa verde


  • 1 Place avocado in a medium bowl. Add green onion, lime juice, and garlic; mash with a fork or potato masher (see Tip). Spread mixture onto cut sides of English muffins. Top bottom halves with spinach and ham.
  • 2 Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium. Break eggs into skillet, keeping them separate. Reduce heat to low; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks start to thicken.
  • 3 Turn eggs and cook 30 seconds more for over-easy yolks or 1 minute more for over-hard yolks. Top sandwiches with eggs and pico de gallo. Replace muffin tops, spread sides down.
  • Tips: To save leftover avocado half, wrap tightly with plastic wrap, then with foil. Store in refrigerator up to 24 hours. Using a spoon, scrape a thin layer off the top of avocado flesh before serving.
  • To simplify prep, omit the first four ingredients and use ⅓ cup Wholly Guacamole refrigerated avocado dip (guacamole).
