Egg McMuffin recipe from

It’s funny to me how I have to beg my kids to go out to eat. When I was a kid we ate most meals at home, so going out to eat was really special, especially if it was for fast food. I would go up to the menu boards and drool over all of the offerings. When we went to McDonald’s it was more often than not to fill my craving of chicken nuggets for lunch, but I always wanted to go there for breakfast to try an Egg McMuffin. I would watch the commercials on TV during my cartoon time and get sucked into the kids laughing, playing and having fun while they enjoyed their stacked breakfast sandwich.

When my parents finally did take me there it didn’t really live up to the hype that I had been sold advertising them, but never less they were different than what we ate at home. My kids don’t ask to go to fast food joints, but I still love making them some of the foods I dreamed of like a classic Egg McMuffin. It’s funny how parenting often becomes fulfilling our childhood wants and dreams ;)

Toasted English muffins stacked with ham, cheddar cheese and fresh Safest Choice Eggs are a massively exciting breakfast treat for anyone whether they’re used to staying home or going out. When you use quality ingredients, these sandwiches are better than anything you would eat out and the best part is they take no time to prepare!

    Yummy! Could these be made ahead of time and then frozen?

      Probably because Catherine cooks at home regularly, and good food too. My little one who is 2.5 gets a treat occasionally from Chick Fil A, mainly because of the books you get with a kid's meal, but most often he wants mama to make something. Kid's don't miss what they've not had. Home cooked is so much more nutritious.

    What brand english muffins do you use? I find that most whole wheat english muffins have hydrogenatated oils in them. What's worse, refined flour or hydrogenated oils?

    Egg McMufins are one of the few fast foods that I actually like, although I don't eat them often...but this homemade version looks even tastier!
