Sausage Egg McMuffin Recipe

Sausage Egg McMuffin Recipe

Lately, I’ve been preparing these Sausage Egg Mcmuffin sandwiches for breakfast. It’s one of those go-to meals that’s enough to keep me full and satisfied in the mornings. I make these quite often because they’re so easy to make, and can be assembled ahead of time. The Sausage McMuffin with Egg is definitely an iconic American breakfast dish ever since its first introduction in the McDonald’s all day breakfast menu during the 1980s.

Its main ingredients are sausage patties with cheese slices and egg in between tasty English muffins. When I made my Sausage and Egg McMuffin, I used simple ingredients like freshly toasted English muffins for the sandwich buns and cooked sausages for the patty. If you’re wondering what sausage to use, I recommend Jimmy Dean sausage. I think it tastes the most similar to McDonald’s sausage. You can even add crispy bacon strips on top of the sausage patties, if you want some extra meat and protein for breakfast.

Next are the cheese slices and cooked egg. I used American cheese slices so it melts deliciously over the patties and bun. Then, for the eggs, it needed to be perfectly round so it could fit the shape of the English muffins. That’s why I used egg rings while I cooked them sunny side up with the yolk just a little bit runny. Once that was done, it was time to assemble the Sausage Egg and Cheese McMuffin sandwich.

Make sure you toast the English muffins so they’re tastier when combined with the sausage, egg, and cheese slice. I made about four of these sausage egg mcmuffins so that I could save some for my next breakfast. If you’re making for a bigger crowd, it’s better to prepare each ingredient on a baking tray to avoid overcrowding.

This sausage and egg breakfast sandwich is really the perfect grab and eat meal, especially when paired with hot coffee in the morning. It’s definitely one of my favorite easy breakfast recipes to make. I also realized that if ever I wanted a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin copycat, I could just remove the egg and enjoy the savory taste of the sausage meat and cheese.
