When you’re in a rush, it’s very convenient to drive through McDonald’s and pick up an Egg McMuffin. However, it’s real easy to make your own at home. If you make them up ahead of time, as I did, then all you need to do in the morning is take it out of the freezer and heat it up. You don’t have to leave the house and drive to McDonalds and wait in line. Plus, this will save you money! Also, it’s healthier!
Bread – Of course Egg McMuffins are made with English Muffins. But why not change it up a bit and use rolls or croissants. I made some of mine on English Muffins and some on croissants, for variety. Also, instead of white, why not make it a bit healthier by using wheat?
Meat – You have several options when it comes to meat. I used frozen breakfast sausage which I defrosted in the microwave. I also used bacon which I cooked in the oven. (See my previous post – Cooking Bacon in the Oven).
Eggs – You will need one egg per sandwich.
Cheese – An Egg McMuffin comes with cheese but you can omit it if you want. I used slices of American cheese but you can use what ever kind you like. Next time I’m going to try Pepper Jack. To cut calories, use fat free cheese.
Preheat oven to 350 degree.
Cook your eggs. (See my previous post – Cooking Eggs in the Oven – Super Easy).
Heat up or cook the meat.
Slice all the English Muffins in half and place them on a baking sheet. Place in oven for about 10 minutes to toast the English Muffins.
Take half of a muffin. Layer the egg, meat and cheese on top and then put the top half of the muffin on.
If you want to eat these right away, just stick them in the oven for 5 or 10 minutes until they are warmed through and the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
If you are going to freeze them, wrap them individually in aluminum foil and then place them into a ziplock bag.
To eat, either defrost overnight or microwave in the morning. About 1 minute to 1 ½ minutes on high should do it.
