Thai Steak McMuffin

The weather was so nice this past weekend in the Milwaukee area. When I say nice, let’s just say it around 60 degrees. You don’t know what that did to us. It lifted us up, we opened windows, we were smiling, and I could probably […]

Mexican Chorizo Egg McMuffin

One of my favorite breakfast sandwiches is probably the egg McMuffin, and I make them at home all of the time. I’ve made everything from a corned beef mcmuffin, my son’s favorite sausage and egg mcmuffin, and my favorite, the classic egg mcmuffin. But then […]

Corned Beef McMuffin

Corned Beef McMuffin

This past weekend, my son and I were running some morning errands, and as he did not have breakfast before heading out the door, I asked if he wanted to stop at McDonald’s. I know, I know. McDonald’s. But he is still a kid, and he probably only eats there about 6 times a year. Heck, when I was growing up, I think we ate there once a week! He had a tiny bit of excitement in his voice, so I pulled through the drive-through, and he ordered what he always orders, the sausage mcMuffin. As we continued to drive, he said to me, which I thought was pretty darn cute, “You know dad, I probably would have never ordered this if you did not pursue me when we went camping this past summer. I probably would have ordered those pancakes which were never very good.” For whatever reason, that meant something to me. He was grateful, even though it was over a sausage mcMuffin.

I will admit though that a homemade egg mcMuffin is my favorite breakfast sandwich. Not only that, but this time of year I get overly excited that corned beef hits the markets, and go on sale. I’m a corned beef junky. I love everything about it, well with the exception of the boring corned beef with cabbage and potatoes. I’m sorry, but not a fan. I am a fan however of corned beef. I’ve done things such as reuben style potato skins, corned beef hash quesadillas, an awesome melt, my favorite hash, the classic sandwich, even potstickers, corned beef cheese burger, and now the corned beef mcMuffin!

Corned Beef McMuffin Recipe

As you can see, I really like corned beef. My wife on the other hand will not even come near it. Maybe it is the smell, I don’t know, but that only means more for me! So as the corned beef just came on sale, I decided to make it last night, and come up with this awesome breakfast sandwich.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1 English muffin, split and toasted
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1/2 cup of chopped and cooked corned beef, seared
  • 1 egg, cooked over easy or sunny side up

Simple ingredients, however the corned beef takes this one to a whole new level. McDonald’s you should probably take note.

Start by heating a sauté pan on medium heat. Add the canola oil, and let it come to temperature. Add in the chopped corned beef, and cook until you get some nice crispy edges. Remove to a small bowl, and set to the side. Next, crack the egg, and cook until your desired doneness. During this time, toast your English muffin. Once toasted, lay down the American cheese on the bottom muffin, top with the cooked egg, and carefully place the crisped corned beef on top. Top with the top muffin, and get ready to go.

Now I love the classic egg mcMuffin, as well as the sausage mcMuffin, but this one, well I’m not going to joke, but this is hands down my all-time favorite! It’s a great time of year, not only for coming up with great corned beef recipes, but to enjoy this awesome corned beef mcMuffin! Hope you enjoy.

Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich

My kid has been coming home on a regular basis for most of his junior year in high school. I always think how rad would that have been when I was in school! He gets this privilege for a couple of reasons, and I am glad that he does. Not only does it allow me a chance to have one on one time with him, if needed, but it also allows me to be able to make him some brunch before heading back to school.

He is self sufficient for the most part and his go to items are always a grilled cheese sandwich or a quesadilla. I had some time one my hands the other day and decided to offer up my services and make him something to eat. I rummaged through the fridge and decided that I would offer up a sandwich but go breakfast style as I know he loves egg McMuffins as well as pretty much any type of sausage. I had grilled up some Johnsonville Polish Kielbasa the night before and that is what sparked the idea of making this Polish Sausage Breakfast Bagel Sandwich.

Polish Sausage Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

This is a stunner of a sandwich and I was even in shock when I plated it for my son. The excitement on his face alone was well worth every second I spent making the sandwich, which was only a matter of minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bagel, sliced and lightly toasted
  • 1 whole egg, cooked over easy
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 3 inch link, cooked Johnsonville Polish Kielbasa sausage, cooked and sliced lengthwise

Start by heating a skillet on medium heat. Add in the butter and swirl the skillet as it begins to melt.

Add in sliced Polish sausage. I like to heat the sausage through while trying to get a slight crisp to it along the way.

Turn the sausage and try to lightly smash it so it flattens. Scoot the sausage to the edge of the skillet.

Crack the egg into the skillet and cook the egg to an over easy yolk. While the whites of the egg are almost set, top the egg with the slice of American cheese.

Pop you bagel into the toaster and toast until light golden brown.

Once the bagel is ready, take the bottom bagel and top with the egg and cheese. Add the Polish sausage on top, and add the top bagel. Smash slightly to get the yolk gravy going, then dig in.

The beauty was watching my kid observing this thing. I should have taken a photo of that expression. His smile, his excitement, and whatever the heck he said about it really just made my day. I asked him how the sandwich was and he said ‘I would rate that’. I think that meant he loved it in his lingo, and I could probably attest that he did as there was nothing left on his plate but a drop of somewhat hardened yolk gravy.
