Step 1

Add oil to skillet on medium-high heat. Add arugula and cook for about 2 minutes until it starts to break down a bit.

Using the spatula divide the arugula mixture in half and shape it into 4 inch round circles. Turn heat down to medium.

Break an egg over each circle and cook for 2 minutes.

Put muffins in the toaster.

Add cheese over top of eggs and cook for 2 or 3 more minutes, covering pan with lid if possible.
