Meal-on-the-Go Copycat Egg Muffin
I wanted to call this an Egg McMuffin because that was really the inspiration after all these
This is one of those recipes that you really don’t need because it’s simple enough that you can do on your own. Sometimes I know it’s just good to find some inspiration. We especially like inspiration that can come together quickly, is portable and is healthier than the norm.
Throughout the years we’ve had our share of Egg McMuffins. I can’t really tell you the last year I had one from Micky D’s because they are so easy to whip up at home, and we really don’t frequent their lines anyway. I resurrected the copycat Egg McMuffins after we started having Saturday morning soccer games a few years ago and I wanted a hearty breakfast meal on-the-go. I’ve even made them the night before for those really early mornings.
These copycat egg muffins are as healthy as your English muffin is. We always aim for a 100% whole wheat English muffin. And if you can get a sprouted English Muffin, even better! Plus I like to add some greens like spinach to infuse the breakfast with more nutrients. I feel like I am taking extra good care of my family when the greens are present. Anyway, they are really easy to port, and give you lots of protein depending on what toppings you use. You can use Canadian bacon, ham, bacon, sausage, go vegetarian, or more. We opt out of the American cheese, replacing it with raw milk cheese and cheddar cheese. I always scramble the eggs because when you are prepping food for a crowd in a hurry, that’s what you do.
