Homemade egg McMuffins!

Today I made egg mcmuffins... at home! I made two at a time so I put the english muffins in the toaster & as they toasted I fried/crisped 2 slices of back bacon (that's canadian bacon to you americans) & fried 2 eggs. & I broke the yolks on purpose because I didn't want it leaking everywhere. As soon as I flipped the eggs over I put a slice of cheddar cheese on top of each. It didn't melt completely but definitely softened up plenty. When the english muffins popped & I put an egg/cheese & 1 slice bacon on each. Altogether it took only about 5-10mins to do it all. Quick & easy & so delicious... worth a try for sure.

I have done this, not with back bacon, but with a sausage patty! I have also tried it with the eggs being scrambled. Either way, back bacon, sausage or regular bacon whatever it is as you say, quick, easy, and delicious!!

I did the same just a couple days ago. I used a toasted whole wheat english muffin, then placed a slice of sauteed ham on that, and added a fried egg, broken yolk, as I like my yoke cooked, and then a slice of sharp cheddar cheese. It was delicious.

I do this quite often myself. Most of the time I scramble the egg and use white or whole grain bread instead of the muffin.

LOLOLOL - I do this too. When I do the eggs I spray one of those white ramekins you can use for making desserts and that holds one egg, break the yoke. I put the ramekin in a skillet of water and bring to a simmer, cover, simmer until cooked, take knife and slice around edges - I swear it looks just like their!

They are quite tasty at home, aren't they? I use WW English muffins too and I don't even bother with the cheese - they just taste better without it.

Yep, if I had a poacher I would use it - the white ramekin works in its place. Canadian bacon is the bomb! And without the cheese, using a ww muffin, it's not a bad breakfast either!

No with some juice or a piece of fruit it's great. My only problems comes from wanting two of the darn things
