Sausage, Egg McMuffin

April 26, 2009

sausage-egg-mcmuffinsSo this deliciousness is what I had for my lovely breakfast this morning. This recipe doesn’t necessarily follow my rules of it must be easy… unless, you prepare all the components in advance and then freeze them. Aha! A way to beat the system! 😉

So I originally found this recipe on this wonderful site, so I thought I would share my version which uses the her recipe for the english muffin, but I make my own sausage.

English Muffin Ingredients: (Copied from Healthy Indulgences-check out her low-carb cadbury cream eggs!)

  • 1/4 c. butter, melted
  • 1/3 c. coconut flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. aluminum -free baking powder
  • 1/2-3/4 c. sharp cheddar cheese, grated

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Beat together eggs, butter, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
3. Add coconut flour and baking powder, whisking into the batter until there are no lumps.
4. Stir in the cheese.
5. Spoon batter into 5 buttered ramekins.
6. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Let cool completely before cutting into.

Sausage Ingredients: (Adapted from a mama on MDC)

  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. sage
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes [opt.]
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves

1. Mix all ingredients together and form into small patties.
2. Indent the middle of the patties so that it cooks more evenly.
3. Fry in a skillet on both sides until done.
4. Freeze.

McMuffin Ingredients:
So now that you have all the ingredients frozen or in the fridge, this is a quick, easy meal!

  • 1 english muffin
  • 1 fried egg*
  • 1 sausage pattie
  • slice of cheese [opt.]
  • slice of avocado, or salsa or anything you desire [opt.]

1. Cut the muffin in half and toast it.
2. Pile on the ingredients and chow down!

*The way my dad does the fried egg on a breakfast sandwhich is awesome! He fries the egg and just before it is done, he tops it with a piece of cheese and then flips it so that the cheese is directly on the pan. He lets it sit until it gets brown and crispy… Oh so good!

    OMG!! I just tried these and they are SO GOOD! And so FILLING! I usually eat a lot for breakfast, but just one of these was enough. How did you cook the eggs, to get them just the right size?

      We used the ring lids for the top of mason jars to make the eggs like that. But you could use round cookie cutters or bake the eggs in a ramekin to get that shape! I am glad you like ’em!

    I am going to make these this weekend! Although I think I’ll do the muffins in muffin tins since we don’t have ramekins and just use sausage and no eggs. Thanks!
