Toast your sliced muffin.
Heat a 9 to 10-inch non-stick skillet or well-seasoned cast iron skillet over medium.
Mix the egg with the milk/water and a pinch of salt.
Once the skillet is hot, spray it with an ample amount of cooking spray (or melt butter in the pan or brush it with oil). Pour in the scrambled egg and immediately swirl the egg in the bottom of the pan to make an even layer, like you would for a crepe. Immediately place your cheese in the center of the egg. Add a few dashes of hot sauce. Once the egg is set enough to fold over onto itself with a spatula (this could take 30 seconds to 1 minute), fold each side over the middle until you have a cute little egg and cheese envelope. Let it cook for another 30 seconds, then transfer it to a plate.
Top each toast half with avocado. Place the cooked egg on one side. Top with cucumber, tomato, arugula, red onion and top with your other piece of toast.
