Egg Mcmuffin

Spending Too Much Money at McDonald's? Make Your Own Sausage McMuffin at Home!
By Ethan Ferrell
One of my favorite breakfast foods is the Sausage McMuffin at McDonald's. I've been eating those ever since I was a kid, and to this day I absolutely love them! They have 2 versions of it, 1 with egg, and 1 without egg that only has the sausage and cheese. Unfortunately, when you eat as much of these as I do, it can start to get pretty pricey. And with the economy these days we're all looking to save money, so I've come up with my own version of the Sausage McMuffin that I make at home.

To begin with, you'll need English muffins, cheese slices (make sure it's not the real cheap kind because those don't melt very well), eggs, butter or margarine, and frozen sausage patties (Brown n' Serve works fine). If you want to get real fancy, Jimmy Dean sausage is excellent; not only does it taste good, but you can choose the size of patty that you want.

First step is to slice an English muffin in half and pop it in the toaster. While that's toasting, crack an egg open into a coffee cup and break the yolk with a fork. Cover the top of the cup so it doesn't splatter (paper towel with a rubber band works fine) and cook the egg in a microwave for 50 seconds. Voila, you have a round cooked egg that fits perfectly in your sandwich, just like McDonald's!

For the sausage, you can just place a frozen patty in the microwave for about 40-50 seconds, although frying it in a pan tastes a lot better. Like I mentioned, Jimmy Dean tastes awesome in these sandwiches, but if you're really trying to save money, just go with a cheap frozen brand.

By now, the English muffin should be done toasting, so take it out and slap some butter or margarine on both halves, then place a slice of cheese on 1. Put the cooked egg over the cheese, then the sausage on top of the egg. Top it off with the other half of the English muffin, then nuke the whole thing in the microwave for about 15 seconds to melt the cheese. So there you have it, your own homemade Sausage McMuffin. Enjoy!
