Mostly my breakfasts are pretty boring – cereal – either Cheerios or Frosted Mini Wheats – again pretty boring. But this weekend I had a craving for an “Egg McMuffin”. An interesting fact – I worked at McDonald’s as a teen (X number of years ago!) And I have first hand experience on how they were made from scratch. I bet now everything is pre-made and nuked before you buy.
So here is my recollection of how these were made. Heat some eggs rings on a griddle sprayed with PAM
Break an egg into each and then take a knife and break up the yolk
Let the egg cook and before flipping it over, run a knife around the inside edge and start heating the canadian bacon on the griddle and toast the muffin – only the Thomas brand will do and fork split it…
Top the egg with the bacon and a slice of american cheese
|I place a lid over to help the cheese melt faster|
Butter your English muffin and top with the egg and it is done. It hit the spot for me and Mr. John!
Monday back to cereal…
