McMuffinish Breakfast

Making a Counterfeit Sandwich

I recently landed on a blog post describing how McDonald’s style Egg McMuffin can be made at home.  It took more time to read through the authors lengthy recipe than it does to actually produce a homemade Egg McMuffin. Here is my quick and easy recipe.


  • (1) Egg
  • (1) English Muffin
  • Butter
  • (1) Slice of American Cheese
  • (1) Slice of Ham


  1. Scramble the egg in a small microwave safe bowl, then cook it in a microwave for 1 min – or until it’s not juicy
  2. Toast two halves of an English muffin, butter each after toasting
  3. Place a slice of American cheese, the cooked egg, and a slice of  ham on the toasted muffin.
  4. Microwave the entire sandwich for up to 1 min.


That’s it. Follow just four simple steps and you’ll be eating a tasty homemade McMuffin. Best of all,  you’ll spend only a fraction of the three bucks McD charges. Don’t slip the butter, it’s the key ingredient for making at home muffin sandwiches taste like the real thing!
