skinny McMuffin at home

mcmuffin-hThey say breakfast is the most important meal of the day (I’m not sure I agree with that, being I am not a must eat breakfast kinda gal) but if I could have one these sassy little skinny McMuffins sandwich every morning I might just change my mind.

The whole idea of this skinny McMuffin came from The Hubby actually.  He has been trying to eat breakfast every morning (you know like your supposed to) and he normally fixes his famous omelette but one day he realized that we were out of egg whites so we had to come up with plan B…and this sandwich was born.

First up was toasting the english muffin and then seasoning it a bit…in my world we could have stopped there but The Hubby likes a little more to his breakfast, so I knew there had to be an egg involved, some breakfast meat of some sort and just to make it pretty some greens as well.

To make breakfasts easier I usually keep some of the heat n serve turkey sausage patties on hand and they worked perfectly for this sandwich, not only was it delicious but they also fit the McMuffin perfectly.  I fried the egg until it was just cooked through (The Hubby does not like runny eggs) , but a runny egg, scrambled eggs or egg whites would be great.  You could also add some cheese if you wanted but for us it was not needed…but if you were to add cheese I would suggest a great cheddar or gruyere but The Hubby would go with american and call it great!

Make these sandwich’s the night before and then heat them up real quick in the morning for a quick, but filling breakfast that is sue to start your day off right for sure without the guilt of the drive thru!
