Boca Breakfast Sandwich (meatless egg mcmuffin)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

I love McDonald's Sausage McMuffin, but this healthy creation is just as tasty (Boca burgers are scrumptious with the right fixings!).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toast bread.
  2. Heat Smart Balance or oil in non-stick pan on medium high.
  3. Meanwhile, microwave Boca burger in package (just open it on one side) for 2 minutes.
  4. When pan is hot, crack egg into it and break yolk with edge of shell.
  5. Sprinkle egg with salt and pepper.
  6. Turn egg over with plastic spatula when ready (usually about 30-45 secs).
  7. Cook until yolk reaches desired consistency (I like it a little gooey but mostly firm).
  8. While egg is cooking, spread mayo on one side of toast and put Boca burger on top.
  9. Put cheese on other piece of toast.
  10. When egg is done, put put it on top of cheese (if cheese doesn't melt, put the whole thing in the microwave for about 10 seconds).
  11. Put sandwich together and eat before it gets cold!
  12. Optional: add some hot sauce for extra kick.

An actual egg mcmuffin from McDonald's (with egg and cheese) is 450 calories and has 27 grams of fat. This doesn't seem like a much healthier choice...though a Boca burger has got to be healthier than McDonald's sausage!

Tasty, filling breakfast. I also had Morningstar Farms Meatless Breakfast Sausage patties on hand and really debated whether to use those rather than the Boca burgers. For the sake of following the recipe, I went ahead and used the Boca burger (Flame Grilled version). It went very well, but next time I will probably go with the sausage version. I only microwaved the burger a little more than 1 minute and had no American cheese on hand so I used cheddar. Thanks for posting your healthy sausage "McMuffin". :)
