This breakfast is the perfect way to keep going throughout the day. The protein from the egg and turkey, plus the fibre from the whole wheat bread, will help keep you fill. For more colour, add in spinach or tomatoes and serve with your favourite fruit.


Soft-cooked eggs: Carefully lower eggs into a pot of boiling water and start the timer for 5 minutes. After  5 minutes, drain, then rinse eggs in cold water immediately to prevent overcooking.

Dippers: Meanwhile, layer three turkey slices and one slice of cheese over bread. Top each sandwich with an additional piece of bread. Repeat until 4 sandwiches have been made. Generously brush canola oil on the outside of each slice of bread. Cook each sandwich for 2 minutes on each side, or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Place sandwiches on a cutting board and slice each sandwich into 5 soldier strips. Serve on a large platter.

Break the tops off of the soft-cooked eggs and dip soldiers into the egg dip. Use a spoon to eat the rest of the egg once you are finished dipping.

Tip: Add spinach or another veggie to make this a colourful and nutritious breakfast option.
