A simple recipe to make a Homemade Egg Mcmuffin, one of the most popular handheld breakfast sandwiches and meals ever! No drive-thru needed!
Egg McMuffins. They were one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast back in the day. They’re warm and tasty, what’s not to like about that? They used to be really inexpensive, so when we were all on the way to an early practice or meet we’d often go through the drive-thru and get some. These famous handheld breakfast sandwiches are still selling today, but they’re not nearly as inexpensive as they used to be. Solution? Make them yourself! A Homemade Egg Mcmuffin is super simple to make! So simple that they don’t even really need a recipe! And they’re inexpensive too, you can make a few of them at home for the price you’d pay for one at the drive-thru. Here’s how I make them.
Homemade Egg McMuffin
The recipe as written is for one serving. You can make as many as you want. If you are making a good number of them at once, you’ll want to use either a larger egg pan or a large frying pan and some egg circles instead of the egg pan.

- 1 egg pan (I have a single-egg pan that I use and just love it. It makes the egg nice and round and the egg turns out almost exactly the same size as the English muffin.)
- 1 silicone spatula

- 1 English muffin
- 1 egg
- 1-2 slices Canadian bacon
- 2 slices deli sliced American cheese
- nonstick cooking spray
Spray the egg pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Slice the English muffin and put it into the toaster to brown to your desired color.
Now you’ll cook the egg while the toast is being made.
Place the egg into the pan, pressing down on it a little with a fork to break the yolk.
Cook the egg. When you see the egg is starting to firm up, gently slide the silicone spatula under it and flip it over to finish cooking it.
Take the English muffin out of the toaster and lightly butter the insides.
Place the Canadian bacon onto the bottom English muffin.
Place the cooked egg on top of the Canadian bacon.
Place the slices of cheese on top of the egg.
Put the top half of the English muffin on top of everything else.
Warm in the microwave for 15 seconds just to make the cheese melty and happy and make the whole thing a tad warmer.
