A simple recipe to make a Homemade Egg Mcmuffin, one of the most popular handheld breakfast sandwiches and meals ever! No drive-thru needed!

Homemade Egg McMuffin Recipe From Val's Kitchen

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.

Equipment Needed

  • 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
  • toaster

Homemade Egg McMuffin Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Instructions

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.

Serve immediately.

    We make egg & cheese breakfast sandwiches in our house pretty much every weekend. Sometimes we get crazy and use bagels instead of English Muffins lol.

    Egg McMuffins are one of my favorite things to eat at McDonalds. I need to make this at home, it’s such an easy recipe.

    I make egg and cheese biscuits often when the grandkids come over for a slumber party. I always let them pick if they want those or sausage gravy biscuits. I need to add your recipe to the mix. It’s one the entire family will love.

    I love making these at home. Usually I add turkey bacon in place of the canadian version.

    My son-in-law makes a wonderful homemade egg muffin. He is very particular what kind of cheese he uses. Something he always makes for all of us when we get together.

    I love egg McMuffin’s! I have never tried to make it at home but I bet you it would taste a whole lot better than the restaurant. I will definitely be doing this. It’s a great way to have a grab and go breakfast.

    I received an Egg McMuffin maker a few years ago and we use it from time to time. My kids love egg mcmuffins and sausage biscuits.

    We make these often. But I am most interested in that one egg pan. I’d love something like that. But I’d need about 6 at once.
