English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches

In this post I am sharing how to make English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches at home that are just like your favorites from your local golden arches drive-thru. Sorry Mickey D’s but mine is better.
Breakfast Sandwiches are great for on the go and so delicious! An English muffin breakfast sandwich can be made with your favorite fillings. Mine happens to be sausage, egg and cheese. Classic, right?
I used to simply fry an egg for this sammy but with all of the staying home in 2020 I perfected my copycat egg for these easy  sandwiches. Seriously, it is almost just like the McDonald’s “white egg” except easier to make.
It only takes a few minutes to make these homemade copycat egg Mcmuffin sandwiches fresh. If you prefer they could be made ahead and stored in the freezer to be re-heated in the oven when needed.

Baked Egg for English Muffin Sandwich

The baking pan is the secret to the perfect eggs for this on the go breakfast. I’ll leave a link to this pan in the recipe card if you’re in the market for one.

It’s the Wilton “muffin top” baking pan. I get the oven heating up and spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray then crack an egg into each section. This tip seems to help a lot…use a knife to break the side of the egg yolk.

It makes a difference in the cooking so just trust me on that part.

You can make as little one egg or a whole pan full depending on how many breakfast sandwiches you need.

On the Go Breakfast

Two eggs in a skillet

While the eggs bake in the oven. I fry my sausage in a skillet and have those English muffins toasting up nicely in the toaster.

This really is one of the easiest morning recipes that you can make.

I love that you can use your favorite brand of sausage that is probably a lot more flavorful than what they use in the fast food places.

Other great options would be Canadian Bacon, Ham, Bacon or Livermush along with your egg and favorite cheese.

After I have fully cooked the breakfast sausage, I remove it from the pan and place it on a slice of cheese on the toasted English muffin.

Next, I take the eggs out of the oven and they are nearly cooked through except for a little bit on top and I use a spatula to flip them into the warm skillet for about a minute and it finishes setting the top side of that egg.

Now it is perfect! Season with a bit of salt and pepper and place on your breakfast sandwich. Put the top on and enjoy!
