Homemade Egg McMuffin

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. One of my guilty pleasures is eating an egg McMuffin during the week. Yes, I admit it. As much as I cannot stand fast food, and McDonald’s in particular (besides their french fries, and Coca Cola), but I love their egg McMuffin sandwiches. Now I will also admit that I only eat these about once a month due to a hectic morning schedule, but that once a month is something special. I love everything about that breakfast sandwich, that recently I decided to start making my own, and in my opinion, mine is pretty darn spot on to the original.

How to make an Egg McMuffin

Let’s get started.

  • 1 English muffin, toasted
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1-2 whole slices of your favorite Canadian bacon
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 large food mold ring, or mason jar lid
  • 1/4 cup of water

Keep in mind that there is no magic to this delicious sandwich and it literally cooks in a matter of minutes.

Start by adding the butter to a small, non-stick skillet. Bring this up to a medium heat. Once heated, add the food ring. If you do not have the food ring, try the lid of a mason jar.

Crack the egg and add it into the food mold ring.

Next, add your separate your English muffin and place them into your toaster. Cook until toasted.

Add the water to the skillet, then cover with a lid. Cook for about 3 minutes.

Once the egg is cooked, remove the food mold and egg with a spatula and place on a small plate. You should be able to jiggle the food ring to remove the egg, or run a knife along the inside edge, getting the egg out of the mold.

Add the Canadian bacon to the skillet, and cook for about one minute or until it is heated through.

Now it’s simply time to assemble.

Add the American cheese to the bottom slice of the toasted English muffin. Add the egg, then top with the Canadian bacon and then the top of the English muffin.

Just like McDonald’s but in my opinion better. Why better? Well, because you just made it and you know what went into it. Now I’m hooked and I am eating them about once a week now. Sorry McDonald’s, it’s now one less visit.
