I’ve been trying to move away from greasy, processed, fast food and cook meals at home with fresh ingredients instead. But every so often my husband decides he just has to have McDonalds and their over-priced Egg McMuffins are one of his favorites. So in an effort to eat more healthy, without cutting out all of our favorite foods, I realized I could start making most of these at home! The first time I made Homemade Egg McMuffins I had intended for them to be a freezer meal; something we could grab on the go. However, once my husband sneaked his first of these sandwiches as they were being assembled, it was all over. That batch of 8 Egg McMuffins never made it to the freezer. This has become a favorite at our house and I have finally given up trying to make enough to freeze them. My husband claims they are even better than McDonalds.
Better Than McDonalds
If you are using regular bacon or ham make sure it is cooked. Then grease a muffin tin and crack an egg into each of the circles. My husband goes through these about as fast as I can make them, so I usually fill up my muffin tin, but you can cook only one or two if you like. Poke the yolk of each egg several times with a toothpick to make sure it cooks all the way through. Bake the eggs in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Poke the centers with a toothpick to make sure they are done, it should come out clean. If you are only making one or two of these at a time you can fry the egg on a skillet, using a circular, metal cookie cutter to shape the egg into a circle. Add a lid to the skillet for a few minutes so the steam cooks the top of the egg as well. Poke the centers with a toothpick to be sure they are done. Be careful when removing the cookie cutter as it will be hot!
While the Eggs are cooking, toast the English Muffins and spread with a little butter. Lay a slice of Cheddar Cheese inside one half of the muffin while it is still warm. Add one baked egg circle on the muffin. Place either one slice of Canadian Bacon or one slice of regular bacon, broken in half, over the Egg and top with the other half of the muffin. If these delicious sandwiches don’t get devoured right away, you can wrap them in plastic and freeze for individual breakfast sandwiches on the go. To reheat simply unwrap the plastic and wrap the frozen sandwich with a paper towel. Microwave for about 1 minute and enjoy a delicious homemade sandwich on the go!
For Each Sandwich:
1 English Muffin
A little Butter
1 slice Cheddar Cheese
1 slice Canadian or Regular Bacon
Bake the Eggs in a muffin tin on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Fry Bacon if needed. Toast the English Muffins, spreading each with a little Butter. Layer the Sandwich with 1 slice Cheddar Cheese, 1 cooked Egg circle, and 1 slice of Canadian or Regular Bacon. Enjoy!
