McDonalds Remake

Since the Master Cleanse I still have not eaten any fast food! I made a remake of McDonalds Egg McMuffin!

Remake Egg McMuffin

  • 1 whole wheat English muffin
  • 1 slice cheese (I used low-fat cheddar)
  • 1 slice Canadian bacon
  • 1 egg white

These are great for freezing too, I made 10 and individually froze them. Really good for a quick eat, on the go, when you’re lazy, tired, etc. Just wrap in paper towel and microwave for 1 min.

Toast English muffins. Cook Canadian bacon in dry skillet about 3 mins per side. Spray a muffin tin with non stick cooking spray. Crack egg whites into a muffin tin, add s&p (salt & pepper) Bake at 350′ for around 12 mins until set. I had the ingredients all going simultaneously. While the eggs cook, you can cook the Canadian bacon while toasting the English muffins. I ran a knife around the edges of egg whites for easy removal and they all came out easily.

The facts:

Calories: 290                                               Calories: 209

Cholesterol: 260mg                                  Cholesterol: 20mg

Protein: 17g                                                 Protein: 21.3g

You could reduce this even more by:

  • Using Turkey Canadian Bacon (I couldn’t find any and I didn’t feel like going to another store)
  • Using non fat cheese

I think they taste good too, I wouldn’t eat it if I didn’t. Monkey likes them too, they’re great for a quick bite for him after a late night of work (chefs work long, late hours) or a quick bite for him before work.

McDonalds Egg McMuffin is actually their best sandwich as it is compared to their others. Their biscuit and bagel sandwiches range from mid 400 calories up to 1090 calories.

Now if I could make a healthy Big Mac that actually tastes the same………hmmm…..
