egg mcmuffin.
September 12, 2008

So, this is admittedly not a recipe, per se . . . it’s more like an idea.  You don’t really need a recipe for an egg mcmuffin or for any other fast food breakfast sandwich, but maybe you do need to be reminded that you can make them at home in a much healthier way!  This is also a very quick meal idea . . .  not as quick as a nutrition bar but not as time consuming as pancakes, so it’s totally suitable for a weekday breakfast.  And you have to admit, there’s something kinda sinful about eating a melty breakfast sandwich, even if it is made with a whole wheat muffin and turkey bacon!

Egg McMuffin

Ingredients

I would . . .

You could . . .

Cooking spray

 

1 whole wheat English muffin

Any kind of English muffin or toast

1 large egg

2 eqq whites

1 slice turkey bacon

1 slice real bacon

Slices of white cheddar cheese

Slices of any type of cheese

Preparation

1.  Split English muffin.  Align slices of cheese on one half of the muffin.  Toast on medium-high until cheese is melted.

2.  While the English muffin is toasting, wrap one slice of raw turkey bacon in a paper towel.  Microwave on a microwave-safe plate from 1 to to 2 minutes to desired level of crunchiness.

3.  Spray the inside of a ceramic ramekin with cooking spray.  Break egg into ramekin and stir well.  Microwave from 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on egg size and microwave power.

4.  Remove English muffin from toaster.  Invert ramekin over one muffin half.  Egg “round” should drop onto the muffin with a slight tap of the ramekin.  Tear bacon in half and place on egg “round.”  Top with remaining muffin half.

Cooking Tip:

The ramekin is what makes the perfect egg mcmuffin shape of the egg “round.”  Choose a ramekin with a diameter that matches or is slightly smaller than the diameter of the English muffin, and be sure to spray the interior of the ramekin liberally, or you’ll be scrubbing cooked eggs off of the ceramic!
