I wake up in the morning and often crave a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin. Aside from french toast and eggs benedict, it may be my favorite breakfast. I also love their hash browns and sometimes think their coffee is better than at Starbucks. On top of that, I can play McDonald’s Monopoly, my favorite campaign from a fast food restaurant!
I need to stop going to McDonald’s.
The reason I started cooking was to make food I want to eat. So why don’t I make myself some breakfast sausage sandwiches with eggs and cheese? I don’t have enough time in the morning to make myself breakfast.
Solution: make a batch and freeze it.
I bought myself the following for a total of less than $12 and made 8 Sausage McMuffins, which comes out to less than $1.50 a piece:
– 1/2 lbs of ground pork (~$4)
– 1/2 lbs of ground lamb (~$3)
– 12 english muffins (~$1)
– 12 medium eggs (~$1)
– 16 slices of cheese (~$1)
I took the meat and added the following before I made 8 flat patties the dimension of english muffins and cooked it up on a frying pan (5 minutes each side):
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 tsp pepper
– 1 tsp sage
– 1 tsp thyme
– 1 tsp rosemary
– 1 tbs sugar
– pinch of cinnamon
– pinch of ginger
– pinch of cayenne
– pinch of red pepper flakes
I then cooked up some eggs, stacked up the ingredients, and there you go. 8 of my very own Pork and Lamb Sausage Egg McMuffins. Frozen and ready to be toasted any morning I feel the craving.
You have no idea how excited I am for breakfast tomorrow.
