Does anyone else struggle with breakfast?

I know I do. I struggle with creativity, I dislike too much repetition, and I feel like I don’t necessarily know from one minute to the next whether I’ll want a sweet breakfast or a savory breakfast.

Well the other day, we happened to stop at a well known fast food place (that I won’t name) and I really enjoyed my breakfast there. So much so that I decided to recreate it at home. So here we go. Martha’s McMuffins. (Okay fine, it was McDonald’s. Don’t judge. Lol)

You will need:

  • English muffins
  • Butter
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • Cheese (I like sharp cheddar)
  • Maple syrup (optional)

Open your English muffins, put a bit of butter on either side, and place them face down on the pan to toast.

Crack some eggs into a bowl, add milk, salt and pepper and whisk. I was making three sandwiches (not all for me) I poured three whisked eggs into the pan, and after it firmed up, I divided the partially cooked eggs into three parts (one part is already removed)…

And then fold the mostly cooked eggs into a shape that will sit well on an English muffin…

…and then add the cheese on top.

Spread your English muffins with the mayonnaise, and then add your cheese covered eggs.

Now…I had something at McDonald’s that I really enjoyed. It was an Egg McGriddle, and it had a touch of sweetness to it that I was surprised that I enjoyed. Later I found out that it was made with pancakes and NOT English muffins, but I made do. ?

I added…

(Note how I conveniently moved the bottle in the way of the clock so that you couldn’t see what time we were finally having breakfast. ?)

I cooked my English muffins after the other muffins and the eggs so that they weren’t affected by the sweet.

And there you have it! You can add sausage, bacon, (of which I had neither), ham, or any other protein that tickles your fancy.

Now to find a new breakfast, as I don’t want this to become too overused!
