Homemade Egg (Mc)Muffin

I'm always looking for ways to make our morning routine go smoother, and breakfast seems to be the thing we never have time for. Soooo...drive-thru it is!

I LOVE McDonald's Egg McMuffins, but I also know that they aren't the healthiest thing we could be eating for breakfast (or the cheapest). So what to do when you want something quick and easy and inexpensive for breakfast? You make them at home! It's so easy...you cook the egg right in the microwave!

I first tried this recipe out on a Sunday morning. Rick called me at work the next day (on my cell) three times until I finally called him back. I asked him what was wrong. He said "How did you make that egg in the microwave?" Yup, that's why he called THREE times in FIVE minutes. I gave him the instructions, and could hear my boss laughing in the background. I told Rick my boss thought it was funny, so ten minutes later I got a text from him saying "I'm texting so your boss can't hear...but that was so cool!"

Try it for yourself.


Breakfast Sandwich
One whole wheat english muffin, toasted
One slice of cheese
One egg

Spray a coffee mug with cooking spray. Crack the egg in a coffee mug and scramble with a fork. Cover with a wet paper towel and microwave for about 40 seconds. Place the cheese slice on one side of the english muffin, top with the egg, and the other muffin half and enjoy! You could also add Canadian bacon, a sausage patty, or bacon...although those don't exactly make it "healthier."

Kristin, We love egg mcmuffins, we do make them at home..I always scrabble a egg in the pan and of course it all falls out....your tip on using a coffee cup to cook it in is perfect! Thanks!

I've done the egg cup (thanks to hungry girl) with egg white or egg beater, but it seriously stinks up the kitchen.. i'll have to try with a real egg!
