I hate to say it, but the McDonald’s Sausage Egg Cheese McMuffin is pretty freakin’ tasty. I was craving it this week, but I know it is way too bad for me to have, especially on a daily basis. Their’s is 470 and mine is 355! That’s quite the difference. I, like always, wanted to change things up a bit, so I added red pepper, spicy pepper jack cheese, and chives to top it off! This is a great and filling way to start your day!
SPICY SAUSAGE BREAKFAST SAMMIE
Servings: 1 | Calories per Serving: 335
🐖 1 Ounce Pork Breakfast Sausage
🐖 1 Large Egg
🐖 1 Slice Pepper Jack Cheese
🐖 1 English Muffin
🐖 Red Pepper, Black Pepper, and Chives
🐖 In a bowl whisk the egg and black pepper well.
🐖 Heat a skillet to medium heat and place a circular egg shaper on the skillet. If you don’t have an egg shaper like the below, they come in packs of 2 for $3 at Kitchen Collection or you can something around to help shape the egg. Be creative! This will help keep the egg the same size as the muffin, so it doesn’t spill out.
🐖 Cook the egg for a few minutes on one side.
🐖 Lift the egg shaper up. The egg should stand on its own.
🐖 Flip the egg over for 15 seconds, then set aside on a plate.
🐖 Form a 1 ounce patty of breakfast sausage. Sprinkle red pepper on each side. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side in the same skillet.
🐖 Once the sausage is done, let it sit on a paper towel, so it can soak up the grease and not make your muffin soggy.
🐖 Take the English muffin and place the egg on the bottom, then the sausage, and then place the cheese on top.
🐖 Sprinkle some chives onto the cheese and top with the other half of the English muffin.
🐖 Heat up for 25 seconds in the microwave and then eat up!
