Homemade Sausage McMuffin With Egg

Homemade Sausage McMuffin With Egg 1.000

2009 Carl Tremblay

Sep 16, 2009

It costs about $1.27 to make this version of this breakfast sandwich at home.

Servings: 1
  • 1 whole-wheat english muffin, cut in half horizontally and toasted, if desired
  • 1 1/2 ounces pork sausage patty, flattened to 4 inches or a little larger than the English muffin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2-ounce slice cheddar cheese


Line a plate with several layers of paper towels.

Place a small skillet over high heat; when it is very hot, add the sausage and cook for about 2 minutes on each side, until browned. Transfer to the paper-towel-lined plate to drain.

Gently break the egg into the hot skillet, reduce the heat to medium-high and cook for about 2 minutes, then use a spatula to turn over the egg; place the cheese on top of the egg to slightly melt the cheese. Cook for 2 minutes or until the yolk is set to your liking.

Transfer the drained sausage patty to the bottom piece of the English muffin. Top with the egg; serve immediately.
