“Tardiness is not something you can do on your own… and last but not least, [I’d like to thank] the wonderful crew from McDonalds who spend hours making those egg McMuffins without which I might never be tardy.”
Well, regardless of the movie quote, who doesn’t love an egg McMuffin? I mean, it seems like the perfect balance of morning breakfast-ness. But when you look more closely at the ingredients, you may shudder a bit.
For instance, here’s the ingredients for the egg alone (per their website): Prepared with Liquid Margarine: Liquid Soybean Oil and Hydrogenated Cottonseed and Soybean Oils, Water, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Soy Lecithin, Mono and Diglycerides, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate (Preservatives), Artificial Flavor, Citric Acid, Vitamin A Palmitate, Beta Carotene (Color).
What the what? It’s an egg. Cook it and put it in my egg McMuffin, right?
Have no fear, I’ve got a 5-minute version that will fix you right up. Seriously, 5 minutes and you are in egg McMuffin heaven. You can’t get to a drive-through that fast.
My ramekin egg trick also makes the egg the perfect size for an English muffin. Every bite has every ingredient, just as it should. Such deliciousness.
Here’s how you do it. Enjoy!
