Egg McMuffins

You may see me complain every so often via Facebook that I hate eating breakfast or I can't find anything to eat! I have never been a huge breakfast person whether at home or on the go so this has been an ongoing struggle for me. The few things I actually do like are portable, filling and homemade. Of course, fast food breakfasts also fall under the portable and filling category but I am trying to be healthier. Currently, I don't eat fast food so the delicious donuts, tacos, McGriddles, McMuffins, McAnythings are out of the picture (at least for now).

My breakfast tacos have been an awesome substitue for buying or avoiding breakfast! I make a batch, freeze them and they last me a few weeks. However, I have been craving something new for breakfast as of late!

Enter Egg McMuffins from home! Of course you could probably figure out how to make these on your own btu I am sharing my version. Again, I love these because you can personalize them as much as you want! They work with sausage, bacon or ham. You can do no meat, double meat, double egg-whatever your heart desires. I think picky kids and grown ups alike will eat something this cute.

I had bought these egg rings at one point for just this purpose. They are $4 or $5 and you can find them on Amazon or at Bed Bath and Beyond. You could also just make your eggs into the best circle you can-it by no means has to be perfect-I just love all kitchen gadgets :)

So on to the directions. Toast your english muffin and butter it. Make your eggs in a skillet sprayed with nonstick. Then add your meat and cheese. Assemble. Devour. Pretty easy right?

You could make these ahead of time and then wrap in foil and put them in the freezer. Remove from foil and reheat for around 30 seconds. Easy breakfast on the go!

Breakfast Egg McMuffins

Recipe for 1: Make as many at once as you would like!

1 English muffin
1-2 eggs (I used 1 but for a thicker egg, use 2)
1 1/2 slices of ham (or bacon, or a sausage patty)
1 slice of cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese

Hot sauce or salsa, if desired


Toast your English muffin. Butter both sides.

Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Crack an egg into your egg molds or just into the skillet and try to shape it into a circle as much as you can. Flip once bottom side is cooked, around 1-2 minutes. Once the egg is cooked, remove from the pan. Heat your ham in the same skillet just to give some texture, then add the cheese until melted.

Assemble your muffin with the meat, egg, and cheese. Sprinkle with hot sauce if desired.
