The only sandwich I ever liked was the Egg McMuffin, and I always remember asking my mom when I was younger if we could try making them at home for breakfast. Well, thanks to Pinterest, I've found my own homemade recipe, and its proven just how "fast" you can make McDonalds food. Luckily, you can make your own version a little healthier too by using whole grain English muffins, but other than that it doesn't get much healthier. ;)
And as expected, it doesn't look picture friendly. I'd have to borrow Mickey D's food artist for that, but I can assure you it tastes just like their own Egg McMuffins.
Homemade Egg McMufins (Makes enough for one)
- 1 egg
- 1 slice of honey ham or Canadian bacon
- 1 slice of cheddar cheese
- 1 whole grain English muffin
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a ramekin or a jumbo muffin tin, coat inside with cooking spray and add an egg. Sprinkle salt and pepper to your liking, and then slightly scramble the egg with a knife or a fork so it looks like this:
Next, put the egg in the oven (I put the ramekin on a baking tray), and cook for 25-30 minutes. When you have about seven minutes left, put the English muffin topped with ham and cheese in the oven to heat, so by the time the egg is done cooking you can assemble everything quickly.
When the egg is done, lift out with a spoon. If it's suck a bit, use a knife to loosen around the edges.
Sidenote: If you want to make more than one at a time, the eggs can be pre-made and frozen. I've read that is how McDonald's does it, which makes me question whether I'll ever go there for breakfast again. :)
