Stay-In, Take-Out...The Breakfast Addition!

Around my house Saturday is the ONE DAY each week that we are all home.  I try to keep this day as low-key as possible.  Usually we will sleep in, then there is coffee (Oh, how I love coffee), followed by the ritual watching of my favorite Food Network programming.  *sigh*...Saturdays are so great!  Another thing we like to do on Saturdays is grab some Egg McMuffins from our neighborhood golden arches.  I just love those things!  And what about the eggs!?!  Isn't that the coolest thing you have ever seen?  However, this does pose a couple problems.  First of all, SOMEONE, meaning my husband, has to actually get dressed, and go out and get it.  Secondly, eating out for breakfast can really add up week after week.  For my husband and I alone you are looking at $13 dollars for two meals.  THAT IS CRAZY!?!  Don't even get me started on if we had children.  So this morning I decided to challenge myself and see if I could recreate this cult classic at home for a fraction of the cost.
Homemade Egg McMuffin Sandwiches
Here Is What You Will Need: 
  • Eggs
  • English Muffins
  • Canadian Bacon
  • Cheese
  • Butter
Tools You Will Need:
  • Large Frying Pan or Griddle
  • Biscuit Cutters
  • Spatula

First things first, you want to preheat your griddle or frying pan.  Then you will need to spray them, as well as, your biscuit cutters with cooking spray.

Next, crack your eggs into your biscuit cutters and season with salt and pepper.  I recommend breaking the yolk and covering with a plate.  You will understand why here in a bit.  :)

While your eggs are cooking, butter your English muffins and...

Add them to your griddle as well.  As soon as your eggs appear opaque and solid remove the cutter.  Because you sprayed it with the cooking spray it will slide right off.  It looks amazing!  I know I didn't get a picture of it, but I was so excited I forgot.  *lol*  Now you will need to flip the egg. you know why I suggest the plate.  The tops of my eggs were a little too runny for the flip, but I am all about keeping it real for you all.  I assure you, they tasted fine.  *lol*

Heat through some Canadian Bacon and assemble.  There you go!  Egg McMuffins!  These and some tater-tots in your oven and you are good to go in no time!  YUM!!  Best part, you can feed a family of SIX bellies full of these for the same price that my husband and I have been paying for our over-priced meal.  Not to mention I know where it was made, how it was made, and what is in it.  I hope you enjoy this family fun breakfast, and as always, I would love to hear from you!!!

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Living,
