Egg McMuffin

I love McDonald's Egg McMuffins... and for 300 calories they are not a bad on the go breakfast... but you can save money by making them yourself!

My inspiration came from this post I saw on pinterest. (who doesn't love pinterest?  I have gotten lots of ideas from there, and have boards for everything from Breakfasts- to Organization- to Elephants! Follow me here!)

Muffin Eggs!? Awesome!!!

Egg McMuffins

12 eggs
12 slices of uncured Canadian bacon (we like Jones brand)
6 slices of Provolone cheese (you can use whatever cheese you want, we had this on hand)
6 English muffins

Serves 12 (or 4 people for 3 days of breakfasts :-))

First cook your eggs... Spray a 12 hole muffin pan with cooking spray. Crack an egg into each slot...  You can leave them as is, or use a fork and mix up the yellow and white parts... Cook in a 350 degree over for 12-15 minutes... Let cool.  Usually as they cool they separate from the edges, if not use a knife.

While your eggs are cooking open and set out your English muffins... you are only using 1 half for each sandwich (saves on calories and carbs!).  Cut each slice of cheese in half and place one half on each muffin top (I folded mine in half again because I didn't want the cheese hanging over the edge of the muffin so it was less messy).  Then place 1 slice of Canadian bacon on top of the cheese.  When your eggs are done, put one egg on top and your done!  Let cool completely and wrap each one individual (or put each in their own zipploc baggie).  Put the individual portions  into one big gallon bag and stick in the freezer.  Pop them in the fridge the night before you eat them.  Microwave for 30-60 seconds and enjoy!

  1. Putting eggs in a muffin tin for cooking BLEW MY MIND! The first time I saw that tip I was in such an AHA moment it was crazy. Love that idea.

    Great looking egg muffins!
    Take care,

  2. That idea had been one of my favorite pinterest finds!
