McDonald’s Shares Official Recipe for This Breakfast Menu Staple
For those of us who miss waking up with it every morning.
McDonald’s has just done its customers a solid.
While most U.S. McDonald’s locations are currently staying open for drive thru, carry out, delivery and mobile order and pay service – even as many have closed their seating areas – the chain temporarily closed all of its locations in the U.K. and Ireland as of Monday, March 23.
Given that McDonald’s U.K. customers were probably missing a lot of their go-to meal choices, the company saw fit to share the recipe for its classic breakfast sandwich, The Egg McMuffin.
“Craving a McMuffin? We've got you...,” McDonald’s U.K. tweeted on Saturday, April 4, along with very clear illustrated instructions on how to prepare its beloved Sausage & Egg McMuffin in your very own home.
According to the official recipe, you’ll want to start by gathering the following ingredients: an English muffin, 75 grams of sausage meat, two eggs and a slice of American cheese.
First, McDonald’s counsels, you toast the English muffin until it is “golden brown.”
Then you season the sausage meat with “a pinch of salt and pepper,” shape it “into balls” and flatten it “into patty shapes.”
On a preheated grill, cook the sausage patties for about six or seven minutes on one side, then flip them and cook them the same amount of time on the other side.
The egg prep is a little complicated: You cook the eggs in an oil-brushed metal ring, placed inside a small frying pan. “Pour in just enough water to cover the base then bring to the boil,” McDonald’s advises. “Crack the eggs into the rings, cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes.”
Last, you put it all together, using the English muffin bottom as the foundation. Add a slice of cheese, then the sausage, then the egg and cap the whole shebang off with the top of the English muffin.
And voila! You’ve got yourself a much better start to your McMorning… right in your very own home.
