For this egg and cheese on toast, you can serve up the eggs however you like. We can never resist a runny fried egg, but try this recipe with scrambled eggs or even poached.

For the cheese, we use grated sharp cheddar but try it out with pepper jack, gruyère, swiss, or even manchego!

We upgrade this classic breakfast recipe of eggs on toast with fresh radish microgreens to add a touch of crunch and bite. This is my absolute favorite part of this recipe! Use any microgreens you like, but arugula and radish microgreens will add just a nice bite to the egg and cheese. Alternatively, try this with beet microgreens to add a bit of earthiness to your brunch!

What’s your favorite way to enjoy eggs?
