    Kana Kahuna's Note:

    Developed to have a breakfast sandwich that emulated an "eggs benedict" the McMuffin has become the standard sando for breakfast. These are so quick n' easy to make with minimum clean up.

    1. 1
      You will also need an Egg Ring, or a tuna can with the top and bottom off.
    2. 2
      Pre-heat an electric griddle to 275 degrees.
    3. 3
      Toast your english muffin by laying both sides face down on the griddle and applying pressure with spatula.
    4. 4
      This takes 1 to 1½ minutes.
    5. 5
      (they should be medium brown) Set aside.
    6. 6
      Lay your egg ring/can on the pre-heated grill.
    7. 7
      Spray with Pam to prevent sticking.
    8. 8
      Crack the egg and pour into ring on the grill.
    9. 9
      Poke the yolk with a sharp instrument so it flows.
    10. 10
      Butter both toasted halves of the english muffin liberally with melted butter.
    11. 11
      Put a slice of American cheese on the bottom half.
    12. 12
      2 to 2½ minutes after you started cooking the egg, the whites should firm up, and the yolk should still be a bit"liquidy".
    13. 13
      Carefully remove the ring, leaving the egg on the griddle. You may have to"slice" around the edges if it sticks.
    14. 14
      Very carefully turn the egg over, and lay one slice of Canadian bacon on the griddle.
    15. 15
      Cook the egg 45-60 seconds after turning, after about 30-45 seconds,"flip" the Canadian bacon, and remove the egg, placing it on the bottom half (cheesed half) of the english muffin.
    16. 16
      20-30 seconds after flippng the Canadan bacon, remove.
    17. 17
      Place the Canadian bacon on top of the cooked egg, and cover with the top of the toasted english muffin.

      Excellent instructions and I especially liked the idea of using a tuna can for an egg ring, in case someone might not have one.

      I have been making this recipe for years, and while it is a great egg sandwich, it fell a little short of a clone of the egg McMuffin... the egg was not quite right. I recently found the answer... After adding the egg to the egg ring and piercing the yolk, put 1 or 2 medium sized pieces of Ice next to the ring(s) and cover with a large lid. I set my griddle set between 325 & 350... the ice melts and poaches the eggs, cooking the top of the egg. (No need to flip) A perfect restaurant duplicate. I have also found that cutting the slice of cheese into 4 strips, and placing 2 strips in an "X" pattern is the perfect amount of cheese for a sandwich of this size.

      I make mock 2 "egg mcmuffins" just about every morning. I do not use an egg ring but I shape my eggs while they cook. I also do not like useing the "ham". Found sharp chedder or 2% single slices work very well for the cheese. =)
