Healthy Sausage McMuffin copycat

mcmuffin

I’ve thought about making these egg and sausage sandwiches for quite a while now, ever since I saw Kim’s post about them.  I haven’t gone so far so to make a large batch to freeze, but I bet they’d be just as delicious reheated in the microwave.

I don’t eat the real Sausage McMuffins from McDonald’s because I don’t eat red meat or pork, but I do get regular McMuffins with no meat on them, and love it. So to be able to make them at home, and make them healthier, is a no-brainer.

I bought these egg rings at Wegman’s and they’ve worked out really well.  They’re nonstick so they’re easy to clean, and they are the exact right size for a Thomas’ English Muffin. If you click the picture below, you can order them from Amazon (and I make about 2 cents from your purchase).

There’s really no recipe here; it’s more of an “assemble” kind of thing.  Here’s how I made them:

 

  • 1 whole wheat Thomas’ English Muffin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 1 turkey sausage patty (I used the Jimmy Dean frozen ones)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Microwave sausage patty for 30 seconds, or until defrosted.
  2. Toast the english muffin to desired darkness.
  3. Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and place your egg ring inside. Crack the egg directly inside the ring and use a fork to break the yolk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook the egg until almost set on top, and then remove the ring. Flip the egg over and finish cooking the other side.
  5. Place sausage patty on the bottom of the English muffin, put the cooked egg on top, and top with cheese. Add the top of the English muffin and enjoy!
