According to some unknown authority, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When I am working, I rarely eat breakfast, except of course on the weekends, but then it is more like lunch. Lately, I have had the opportunity to enjoy breakfast almost every day. Unemployment has its perks.

One of my favorite grab-and-go breakfasts of all times has to be the Sausage and Egger at A&W, followed closely by the Sausage and Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s. Back in the day, when I worked at the meal hall at Acadia, they used to make a knock-off that they called an “egg-o muffin.” It was also delicious, and I would often enjoy one or two after my Saturday morning shifts.

Since I am now a penniless hobo, I can’t afford to indulge myself at our finer fast food establishments, and I have been forced to come up with my own knock-off breakfast sandwich. Fortunately it is quite easy, and I will share my recipe with you now.

1. Split an English muffin and toast

2. In a ramekin / coffee mug / small bowl scramble an egg with about a tablespoon of milk and some salt and pepper. Microwave 90 seconds at high

3. (optional) Butter the English muffin

4. Place a slice (or two) of processed cheddar cheese on the toasted English muffin

5. Place the cooked egg on the cheese and place the other half of the English muffin on top, making a sandwich

I hope you enjoy my famous breakfast creation. It sure is a lot easier to just go buy it at McDonald’s, but for those times in your life when you are struggling to make ends meet, or McDonald’s is just not accessible, you now have a viable alternative. Feel free to share this recipe at will.

Thank you for the recipe, Andrew. Uncle Dan and I had enjoyed a similar one until the Dr. laid down the law about our cholesterol. We will not rest until we have come up with the geriatric version of your own wonderful and delicious creation.

I have always loved eggs in any way, shape, or form, and I, too have come face to face with the demon cholesterol :( What I would like is a recipe for low fat/cholesterol/sodium Eggs Benedict, and am wondering if those "egg replacements" could do the job - even to make Andrew's famous breakfast creation. Whole wheat English muffins, low fat cheese, egg replacements mmmmmmm :)
