    Serves: 1


    Egg McM ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Split the English muffin and toast it or grill the faces until brown in a hot pan set over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Keep the pan hot.
    3. 3
      Find a shallow can - such as an 8-ounce sliced pineapple can - that has the same diameter as the English muffin.
    4. 4
      Cut off both ends of the can and thoroughly clean it.
    5. 5
      Spray a coating of nonstick spray on the inside of the can, and place it into the hot pan so that it heats up.
    6. 6
      When the can is hot, spray more nonstick spray over the surface of the pan, and pour the egg substitute into the can.
    7. 7
      Salt the egg.
    8. 8
      Place the slice of Canadian bacon into the same pan to heat up while the egg cooks.
    9. 9
      When the egg seems to be firming upon top, use a knife to scrape around the edge of the can to help release the egg.
    10. 10
      Carefully pull the can off the egg, then flip the egg over and cook it for an additional minute or so.
    11. 11
      Build the sandwich by first placing the slice of American cheese on the bottom half of the English muffin.
    12. 12
      Place the egg on top of the cheese.
    13. 13
      Stack the Canadian bacon on the egg.
    14. 14
      Top the sandwich off with the top half of the English muffin.
    15. 15
      Microwave the sandwich for 10 to 15 seconds until warm, and serve immediately.

      Having worked at McDonald's (whoa...that was over 20 years ago), I can tell you this is exactly like an Egg McMuffin, if you use a real egg and regular (not low-fat) cheese. It's McDonald's, folks. Their "recipes" have to be simple enough for a really dumb 16-year-old kid to learn to prepare quickly. It ain't rocket science.

      I am sure these are much healthier than McDonald's. Sourdough English Muffins were used for the English muffin and a reduced fat Swiss cheese due to our dietary preferences. The recipe was well written and easy to follow. Made for *PAC Fall 2009*

      This is an easy and very forgiving recipe. I also used multi-grain english muffin as that's what I had in the house, then found out my canadian bacon had gone bad so instead used bacon that I fried. Buttered both sides of the muffin for some extra taste and used swiss cheese in mine for personal preferance (DH had the American) it was wonderful and better than Mcdonal's as you can adjust to personal taste. Thanks Cloner for a wonderful recipe that's quick, easy and delicious. Made for PAC Fall - 09
