Cover and process until smooth, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of water, if necessary. Transfer to a bowl; set aside. In a large skillet heat butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in crushed red pepper. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. Prepare the Fried Eggs. Spread the cut side of each toasted English muffin half with about 2 teaspoons of the sauce; place on the prepared baking sheet. Top each English muffin half with one of the Fried Eggs. Top with mortadella and the mushroom mixture. Top with cheese. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat about 1 minute or just until cheese melts. Spoon some of the remaining sauce on top of each sandwich. Serve warm. If desired, serve with potatoes. (Cover and chill any remaining sauce for another use. Use within 3 days.) Fried Eggs In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. (Or coat an unheated skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium heat until hot.) Break eggs into skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low; cook eggs for 3 to 4 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks start to thicken. For fried eggs over easy or over hard, when the whites are completely set and the yolks start to thicken, turn eggs and cook for 30 seconds more (over easy) or 1 minute more (over hard). Note: Sliced cooked ham, Canadian-style bacon, or roasted turkey can be used in place of the mortadella. The egg is placed on the bottom of the open-face sandwich to keep it from overcooking under the broiler. Steam-Basted Fried Eggs Prepare as directed, except cook eggs until edges turn white. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons water. Cover skillet; cook eggs for 3 to 4 minutes or until yolks begin to thicken but are not hard.
