(originally made 8/2013)
Tim isn't a big breakfast person. He's recently transistioned to being
a "day" person and taken a liking to the Sausage Egg & Cheese
McMuffin's from McDonald's. I knew there had to be a way to make them
at home that was cheaper. The problem? I don't eat eggs, and I'm
lousy at cooking them. I found this great method on the Mr. Breakfast website and they turned out perfectly!
Sausage, Egg And Double Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
English muffins - split
sausage patties -- used Jimmy Dean
Cheddar cheese- Used American
Pepper Jack cheese- omitted
butter - if desired
Fry a sausage patty in a frying pan over medium-high heat until
browned and completely cooked through. As a rule, you should make your
sausage patty about 1 and 1/2 times as wide as your English muffin as
the sausage will shrink a bit as it cooks.
When the sausage is nearly done, cook your egg using the method below.
Toast your English muffin.
When everything is ready, butter the English muffin. Top the bottom
half with the egg, a slice of Cheddar cheese, the sausage and a slice of
Pepper Jack cheese. Top with the other English muffin half.
To make McMuffin-style egg patties: Place a
small frying pan over medium heat. Place the egg ring in the center of
the pan. Pour hot water around the outside of the ring until it rises to
about 1/6 the height of the egg ring. Gently beat the egg. When the
water boils, pour the egg into the egg ring and cover the pan. Let the
steam cook the egg for about 3 minutes. Pour off the water. Remove the
egg ring. Flip the egg and cook 30 seconds more.
