McDonalds Egg McMuffin Breakfast Sandwich

We're big on breakfast around here, and this is one of my husbands favorites. It's super easy, and includes only common ingredients. It's fool proof!

Of course you can pick your favorite bread, but if you want to go all "McDonalds style," an english muffin is a must! To get the round shape to your eggs, you can use a biscuit cutter or something round that's about the size of the english muffin.

You'll need:
* 1 english muffin
* 1 slice of cheddar cheese (I used Kraft deli cheese slices)
* 1 egg
* dash of salt (totally optional)
* butter (optional)

To make:
Spread butter on each slice of the english muffin and throw in the toaster. Cook 1-2 slices of bacon between 2 paper towels on a plate in the microwave for about 2 minutes (assuming this is turkey bacon, if not, you're on your own with the cooking times.) Meanwhile, add a tiny bit off butter (or non-stick cooking spray) to a skillet over medium heat. If you're using a biscuit cutter to shape the eggs, spray it well or rub butter all over it, and place it in the hot skillet. Lightly beat an egg and pour it into the biscuit cutter. Let it cook a few minutes, or until the bottom of the egg is cooked (you can lift the biscuit cutter up to see the cooked bottom.) Once the bottom looks light brown, run a knife along the inside edges of the biscuit cutter to remove it from the eggs.

Once the biscuit cutter is removed, flip the egg (which should be cooked enough to keep it's shape pretty well.) The other side of the egg should only take a minute or so to cook completely. Grab your toasted english muffin, top it with the egg, 2 slices of cooked bacon, and come cheese. If the cheese doesn't melt right away, you can place the entire sandwich back on the skillet, or just put the whole thing in the microwave for a few seconds.

** Make sure your biscuit cutter is not plastic! No one likes plastic in their eggs -- not even Mickey-D's!
