Recipe Exchange Thursday

image Hello everyone. I am participating in Just A Gal’s Recipe Exchange Thursday. This is my own very simple version of an Egg McMuffin…LOL.  Really simple, but pretty similar to the authentic, in fact I would guess the same?  Not my fault it’s so easy to copy at home! LOL

What you’ll need:

1 split English Muffin

1 slice American Cheese

1 Egg

1 piece of Canadian Bacon


This is how simple it is, First, put your split english muffin in the toaster to your preferred setting but it’s better when it’s not too crispy. Meanwhile heat up a piece of canadian bacon in a pan or in the microwave, set aside. Then scramble one egg and cook in a pan with a little butter if you want. Try to keep it small and the same diameter as the english muffin. Make sure they aren’t runny and once they are all cooked up, assemble your sandwich. Put the canadian bacon on the bottom piece of english muffin, then the egg, then lay the cheese on top of the egg and put the the other piece of bread on top of that. You can kind of squish it down if it’s too big or wrap it in a paper towel to let the cheese melt a little.

To make it more healthy you could use egg whites, for the english muffin a low fat, low carb, high fiber, or whole wheat alternative. Canadian bacon is pretty healthy, if any of you have never had it it’s just pork tenderloin that has been smoked and sliced. The cheese is the only problem but it’s so good! LOL Ok all the best everyone :)

They actually make a toaster that makes an egg sandwich. There is a little cup on the side where you put your egg. You can heat up your meat, too. My MIL wanted a new toaster and we got here that one. You should have seen the look on the saleslady's face when I asked if they has a toaster that cooked an egg. lol

Bed Bath and Beyond ordered one for me. I think it was only $39.00
