Want to surprise your other half with breakfast in bed on Valentines day? Try something different, a home made Egg McMuffin! Yes, home made! It’s not only super easy, it’s delicious too!
What you will need:
- 2 x English Muffins
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Cheese Slices
- Bacon (Optional)
You will need a special piece of equipment for this one but fear not! They are dirt cheap. They’re called Egg Rings, here’s an idea of what they are on Amazon. I use the metal kind but I’m sure the silicone kind is just as good.
(There is a secret way to make them in a microwave without the need for egg rings, see the end of the post for details)
Cut your muffins in half and pop in the toaster.
Heat a little oil in a non stick frying pan and put in the rings.
Carefully crack the eggs into the rings and pop the yolk.
Wait until its cooked enough to hold its shape then carefully remove the rings and flip over for a few seconds to cook the top.
Then put the eggs in the lightly toasted muffins and top with the cheese slices. If you want a more authentic McDonalds taste then the cheapest cheese slices you can find are definitely the way to go!
These babies are even better when you make them into Bacon & Egg McMuffins. Simply do all the same steps above but fry some bacon and add it right in there. YUM!
You can also make these in a microwave without the need for any egg rings. I personally favour the egg ring method though as the microwaved version can sometimes taste slightly rubbery.
All you need to do is get a microwave safe container in the shape of the muffins, crack an egg in the bottom and pop the yolk.
Set your microwave for 1 minute but open the door after 30 seconds. Check every 10 seconds after this until cooked through.
Make sure to pop any bubbles that crop up in the egg as these have a tendency to explode fairly easily! Not fun to clean up I can assure you.
And there you have it! Super easy, super tasty home made Egg McMuffins/Bacon & Egg McMuffins.
Go forth and be romantic!
