READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by jdennys

I published this some time ago on another recipe site but soon received a letter from a large fast food concern 'asking' me to remove it or refrain from using that company's name or any likenessess to their sandwich, as they owned international copyrights to the name of their restaurant and the sandwich in question. I responded, saying that my family traces their lineage to the Irish and Scottish clans Donald, that those families trace their lines back to approximately 1,700 B.C., which is easily several years earlier than their copyrights. Also, they are legally prohibited from claiming copyright of their name in Scotland. Having said that, you can make at least 3 of these at home for the price they charge for one, it is indistinguishable from their version, and it takes less time to make it than to wait in the drive-thru. They didn't copyright 'drive-thru', did they? Oh, and if you know how to make crumpets, try them in place of the muffins.

Made this for New Kids on the Block Tag game...DELICIOUS! I think they are better than the chain. I followed the directions and I wouldn't change a thing. (Ok, I guess I did use butter instead of margerine). This is so easy to do even the older kids could do this. Definately going into My Favorites of 2011. Thank you.

Directions

  1. Split and toast the muffins. Spread each half with a bit of margarine.
  2. Place one slice of Canadian bacon on the base and one slice of cheese on the top.
  3. Spray the inside of a 3 cup Ziploc-style container with the spray. break an egg into it, break the yolk with a fork and gently swirl with the fork but don't fully scramble. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Turn over gently with fork and microwave an additional 15-30 seconds until fully cooked.
  4. Place egg over the bacon and cover with the top. Repeat with the remaining 3 eggs.
  5. Place all 4 on a plate and microwave for 30 - 60 seconds just until cheese begins to melt.
  6. Serve immediately. Relish in the fact that you're sticking it to the man.
