Sausage, Eggs, Bacon, Cheese on an English Muffin

I LOVE Egg McMuffins!! You know the kind you get at McD’s…However, every time I drive thru to pick up food I spend at least $20 for all us to eat. I believe the total yesterday was $23.50?!? Crazy, right? I make killer McMuffins. I guess we can’t call them McMuffins, can we…Well whatever you call them, they are 10x better than any fast food breakfast sandwich, and since you make it you know what’s actually in I make enough for all 5 of us for under $10…so here is..

1 package of English Muffins (I’ve made these on toast too and they are just as yummy!)

6 eggs – poached (Fried work well too, just not as healthy)

6 slices of cheese

6 sausage patties

1 Lb Bacon

Toast your muffins under the broiler until toasty. Top 1/2 the muffin with some sliced bacon, 1 poached egg, 1 sausage patty, and a slice of cheese. Return to broiler until the cheese starts to melt onto the sausage and egg. Top with other half of muffin, and maybe some grape jelly and enjoy!

Sounds so easy….right….well it is!! You can swap out the meats for Canadian bacon or leftover ham from dinner, if your breakfast is a breakfast on the go or a lunch box breakfast just make sure your eggs are hard poached and wrap the cooked sandwich in foil to keep it warm. Some days I sub poached eggs for fried…it’s all about whatever’s easy that morning…Easy & Yum-O!!


1 package of english muffins – $2 (If you use toast it’s even cheaper )
1/2 doz eggs – Under $1
6 slices of cheese – Under $1
6 Sausage Patties $2
1 lb Bacon – $3
Total : about $8.00

There will be lots of bacon left over so you could put in on the side with some sliced fruit and a glass of juice, or I’m always trying to spread things a little further…and 1/2 of leftover bacon makes awesome turkey clubs for the hubs lunch and grilled cheese with bacon for the kids.

A few of you might be saying ‘We’ve seen this before!!’ Well you’re right…remember I told you guys I was moving all my posts to this blog…slowly…either way these are so easy and so good you won’t ever want them from…what’s that place?….I’m sorry these are so good I’ve already forgotten who I borrowed this idea from ;p

  1. Yummy I haven’t eaten yet. Thanks for the breakfast inspiration. Stop by and say hi 🙂

  2. What time should I be over for breakfast?

    • Sara Says:

      It’s served at 8sm just about every morning around here…but don’t worry wrapped in foil these stay hot for a while if you’re running late 😛

  3. That’s a massive savings, plus your ingredients are probably healthier than whatever ol’ Mickey is using. . .

      I have to admit when we go out we usually end up ordering drinks and hash browns or fries so that brings the total up, but even if you just ordered the sandwiches you’d save… Hope you enjoy them 🙂
