These breakfast muffin sandwiches are perfecto for a quick breakfast at home. I like to freeze them and pop them in the microwave for a grab and go breakfast. These sandwiches don't need to be made with sausage, they can be made vegetarian, with ham, bacon or any type of meat you enjoy in the mornings.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Split the muffins open with a fork and toast them in a toaster oven.

    Advertisement
  • In a large bowl scramble the eggs, green onions and cheddar cheese together. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet, pour the egg mixture into the skillet and let it fry in one layer as you would an omelet. When the egg is cooked on the underside, flip the egg over and cook the wet side; remove from heat when cooked through.

  • At the same time that the eggs are frying, form the sausage into small patties. Place the sausage in another skillet. Fry until browned, remove from pan and drain on paper towels.

  • Make the muffin sandwiches by layering a piece of sausage and a piece of the fried egg between the two muffin pieces. If you intend to freeze the sandwiches, let each part of the sandwich cool before make the sandwiches, then wrap them in plastic wrap and freeze. Reheat in the microwave.

These are the best and great for on the go! I almost always use canadian bacon and sliced cheese but whatever you have on hand is bound to taste good on an english muffin. Read More

I like the idea of a homemade 'Egg McMuffin' but I found myself making a lot of changes to suit my own tastes. I don't like onions especially in eggs so I deleted them. I used a slice of swiss cheese instead of the shredded cheddar which my husband and I really liked. I followed the directions for shaping the eggs into an omelette and then cutting it into pieces. I found it made the sandwiches bulky and uneven. Next time I might try using something that will shape the eggs into six even rounds. Finally I made my own homemade turkey sausage instead of store bought and we both really enjoyed that too. Read More

UPDATE: Answer for Monique. T. The ingredients call for ground sausage. Refer to Direction #3. It says while the eggs are frying form the sausage into small patties. Place them in another skillet and fry until browned. Remove and drain on paper towel. Hope this helps. Happy Cooking!!!! Read More

One of my most favorite breakfasts. Works with almost any meat you have on hand. Sometimes I'll add a little maple syrup drizzle over the egg (minus the green onion) and it's almost like having a particular fast food's all-in-one breakfast sandwich. NOTE: If you have a cookie cutter or even a biscuit cutter you can cook your egg inside it while it's cooking in the hot skillet. Almost like having an egg form so that way it's a little more controlled and will fit a little easier. Just make sure to spritz your "form" with a little non stick spray. Read More

I have made several batches, using this recipe as a rough guide. The best suggestion I have is for the eggs.....Whisk your eggs, milk, spices together, then pour into a sprayed 9x13 pan. I used 12 eggs to make 12 sandwiches. Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, or until set. Cut into squares. Read More

Susan, thank you for submitting this recipe. I realize that there are "advanced" cooks/chefs on this site, but there are also the beginners too! I have been making these for years, as well, but my granddaughter is going off to college soon, and this will be very helpful for her, as I've aimed her toward this site to learn new things from new people who love to cook. I remember learning how to cook, and some of the disasters that could have been avoided had I had some simple, clear instructions. Oftentimes "keeping it simple and basic" is most helpful! Thanks again, Susan! Read More

This was very good but I used only 3 onions and next time I will chop them VERY small.The eggs were hard to turn over but I cut it into two pieces with the spachela and it tuned out OK. I also put some salt and pepper in the eggs and used preshaped patties and put a slice of cheese on top and put it in the mic for20 seconds. Read More

The sandwich is great but the cheddar cheese is sliced not shredded as per the picture. And the ground sausage is a patty. Its not the picture of the described dish but the taste is great. I like my muffin lightly buttered. Well done! Read More

This is a wonderful breakfast sandwich that cost me 46 each to make. I made them with ham because that is what I had on hand. I pan fried the ham to pull all the water out of it. I baked the egg portion in my greased muffin top pan and it worked perfectly. I baked at 350 for 10 minutes. I toasted the English muffins first and let them completely cool before assembling. I think the key is letting all ingredients cool before putting the sandwich together. I wrapped individually in parchment paper and stacked them in the English muffin plastic bag to freeze. DH & DS microwave on high for 30 seconds flip and microwave for another 30 seconds. This is for using from frozen state. I'm making them again this weekend and going to try them with sausage. My family loves this for a quick breakfast sandwich. Read More
