In small bowl, mix the mayo and the herbs. Set aside.
In a medium Swiss Diamond Nonstick Pan over medium heat, melt half the butter. Add the 2 halves of the English muffin, cut side down. Toast until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer the muffin halves to a plate and spread the mayo on 1 muffin half.
In the same pan, add the remaining butter and swirl to coat. Add the egg and the tomato on separate sides of the pan. Season the tomato with salt and pepper. Cook the egg to your liking, about 1 minute per side of over easy, 2 minutes for over hard.
Flip the tomato when you flip the egg. On the muffin with the mayo, add the tomato and egg. Close the sandwich.
