No need to go to the local drive-thru for this popular breakfast! It will take you less time to prepare this egg sandwich at home than it will take you to wait in line at the drive-thru, not to mention save you calories!
Ingredients (for 1):
1 English muffin, split (whole wheat preferred)
1 vegetarian sausage patty
1 slice of American or Cheddar cheese
Non-stick Cooking Spray
1. Warm the frozen sausage patty first. In the microwave, heat the patty for 50 seconds to 1 minute, or until entire patty is heated through. Set aside.
2. Spray a 1 or 2-cup glass measuring cup lightly with Non-stick Cooking Spray. Then, crack the egg into the cup and whisk briefly with a fork. Leaving the egg whole will cause an explosion of the yolk upon heating. Place the egg in the microwave for 45 seconds to 1 minute or until there is no remaining liquid in the cup.
3. In the meantime, toast your English Muffin in the toaster if desired.
4. Finally, assemble your breakfast sandwich, first place the slice of cheese, then the egg, and the patty in between the toasted English Muffin. Be sure to wait a minute or so for the egg to cool down, as it is very hot! Enjoy your homemade, “fast” food!
