Bacon (or Sausage) Egg and Cheese English Muffin

 Bacon (or Sausage) Egg and Cheese English Muffin














There was a time that I used to get these cravings for a Egg and Cheese McMuffin at McDonalds.  Even though I always wanted more bacon and the egg to be less cooked and more runny and the muffin to be slightly more toasted…..I still have been known to actually go out for no other reason but to head out to McDonalds just to get one.  Then one day, it hit me.  If this is not what I really want, then why don’t I made one exactly like I like.   And I did.  And it was fantastic.  And here it is.

Bacon Egg and Cheese English Muffin

4 slices bacon 

4 English muffins, split 

4 slices cheddar cheese 

4 large eggs 

Kosher salt 

Freshly ground black pepper


In a large heavy cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until browned and crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain and reserve the fat in the skillet in a small container.












 In the same skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat over medium heat. Brown half the English muffins in the skillet, split-side-down, then transfer to a work surface. Repeat with the remaining English muffin halves and 1 more tablespoon of bacon fat.

















Preheat the broiler. Place 1 slice of cheese on each muffin bottom and place under the broiler until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.














In the same skillet, heat the remaining bacon fat over medium-high heat. Fry the eggs to desired doneness, about 3 minutes for runny yolks, then sprinkle each with a pinch of salt and pepper and divide the eggs between the English muffin bottoms. Top with the bacon slices.
