Homemade Egg McMuffins

How many of you like to go to McDonald's for breakfast? I know I do. But the cost and the calories aren't always worth it to me. So what do I do instead? I make my own McMuffin sandwiches! It is a lot cheaper, saves you calories, plus you can make a big batch and freeze them for later! And they are SUPER easy to make, so why wouldn't you try them??



Ingredients
  • English Muffins (I only had white, but you can use wheat for a healthier option!)
  • Eggs (I used the carton of egg whites)
  • Turkey Bacon
  • Cheese slices (I used the thin slices and only used 1/2 a slice per sandwich)

Cook the eggs to your liking (I used a little cooking spray and 'fried' them in a pan), and assemble all the ingredients together to build your sandwich. I individually wrap each of them in plastic wrap and keep them in the freezer until I use them. When I'm ready to eat one, I take it out of the plastic wrap, wrap it in a paper towel, and cook it in the microwave for about 1 minute, or until heated.

McDonald's Egg White Delight: 250 calories, 7 grams of fat
Homemade McMuffins: 208 calories, about 5.5 grams of fat

    1. It is super easy for a quick breakfast! Hubby likes to grab poptarts for a quick breakfast, but likes these too [and they have a better nutritional value :)]
