Easy Egg McMuffins

Copycat McDonald's Egg McMuffins are one of my favorite quick breakfasts. Make a bunch, freeze and have them on hand for busy mornings. Plus they taste just like the original!

  • Skillet



  • Cut the English muffin in half, butter, and toast on a griddle or in the oven at 300 degrees for a few minutes.
  • In a skillet, cook the egg to desired hardness.
  • If you want to get really technical like McDonalds, cut the top off of a tuna can, spray the inside well with cooking spray, place that on the hot skillet and break the egg into the can and poke the yolk. Cook until the egg becomes white and solid. You can use an egg ring too, that would probably be easier.
  • Heat up the Canadian bacon or ham in the skillet.
  • Put a slice of cheese on the bottom half of the English muffin.
  • Place the egg on top of that, then the Canadian bacon on top of the egg, and cover with the top of the toasted English muffin.
