Recipe of the Day – Egg McMuffin

egg mcmuffin 5    I don’t know about you but I LOVE the egg mcmuffins from McDonald’s but I HATE the price!

Well I decided to try this new recipe to make my own at home!!

What you need:
English muffins
whole eggs
sliced cheese
Canadian bacon slices or sausage

*For this I used cupcake tins..however I read a few different places that using a muffin top pan is much much better!!

*Spray the muffin top pans or cupcake/ jumbo muffin tins with cooking spray and add an egg to each one.
Use a spatula to break the egg yolk so it flattens and spreads some in the egg white.

* Add freshly ground black pepper to your liking.

*Bake eggs at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until set.

^I forgot to spray my pan lol
*The baked eggs are easy to lift out with a small spatula. If they’re stuck around the edges, loosen them gently with a thin knife.

I toasted my English muffins first.
I also put the Canadian bacon slices into a small skillet to brown it just a bit.

* While the eggs bake, prepare the muffins by splitting them open and adding cheese slices (I folded in the corners of my square slices) and Canadian bacon slices. egg mcmuffin3

*Add the baked eggs when they’re ready.

These are great to freeze and reheat for a quick breakfast in the morning!

Wrap for microwave reheating. I wrap my individual McMuffins in dry wax paper deli sheets. That way, I can put the wrapped sandwiches directly in the microwave for reheating. (You can also use pieces of wax or parchment paper.) After they’re all wrapped, put them in freezer ziploc bags and freeze them. It takes under a minute to reheat a thawed McMuffin at full power in the microwave. A frozen one takes about 3 minutes at half power (turn it over after each minute).

Wrap for oven reheating. Wrap them in aluminum foil if you prefer to reheat them in the oven. This is a good option if you want to reheat several at one time. It takes approx. 30-40 minutes to reheat frozen McMuffins in a 350 degree oven. If they’re thawed, it only takes about 15-20 minutes. The outside of the muffin gets crispy when these are warmed in the oven.
