Make Your Own Egg McMuffin

This makes a great breakfast or lunch. Hey, you could have it for dinner too, if you like. A side dish of Applesauce goes well with the McMuffins.

Stock up on english muffins, eggs, breakfast sausage, and American cheese when it's on sale.

  • Either fry 8 eggs (this works better if you cook them individually, or in a large frying pan to keep them from all running together) ...
  • Or cook eggs like an omelette [crack 3 at a time and mix like you are going to scramble them; add them to a frying pan and allow it to fill the bottom of the pan; once the eggs are firm (don't stir them) use a spatula to cut into four pieces; turn them over for a few seconds to finish cooking]
  • Slice the sausage while it is still frozen (it's easier to cut if frozen) and fry
  • Split and Toast the muffins

Add an egg or omelette piece, slice of sausage, and slice of American cheese to a toasted muffin. Microwave for a second to melt the cheese, and serve.

You can make a batch of these, put them in freezer bags, and freeze them for individual breakfast sandwiches.

Microwave or bake at 350 for 15 min. to reheat.
