Bacon, egg and cheese on a toasted English muffin

Who hasn't been glued to the news these past few days?  It's times like this I wish we could tune in to televison news, I guess. Refreshing the news sites on our tablets is enough. I thought 2020 was bad and was happy to see the back of it, but this year.... 

My plan was to make something from one of the I Heart Cooking Clubs featured chefs and join in but I have been completely distracted and unorganized. Therefore, I will share a new addiction. The breakfast sandwich made with toasted English muffin, bacon, cheese and an over easy egg. 

We probably have this more often than we should.



If you've ever had one from McDonalds and liked it you will love this version. Bacon is ok in moderation, right?  Just don't have it all the time.



It's a simple toss together.  Fry the bacon. Set it aside. Lower the muffins in the toaster as soon as you crack the eggs into the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Carefully turn the egg over so you still have the yolk a bit runny.

Once the muffins are toasted place a slice of cheese then bacon on them, add the hot eggs atop and you have a hot breakfast. I'm sure I need to cut way back on these as cholesterol can be an issue and really, who needs this more than twice a week :-)


I didn'tt have much in the way of foodie posts this week.  Still preparing meals and looking at cookbooks and online recipe but this sandwich is the only offering for Weekend Cooking this week.

  1. Funny, I have been craving one from McD's lately. We don't get them as they don't make a gluten free version for John.
    I could try making the English muffins...
    Even us Canadians have been glued to your news this week. I only fear what might happen next.

    1. Jackie, if you can make the muffins or get a gluten free version (maybe a Whole Foods store?) then you'd love this. So fast.

      Oh, the news is crazy right now! It's like something from a movie. I certainly hope they invoke the 25th because that kind of crazy doesn't need to hold office again. Maybe he'll go to Russia to avoid prosecutiion.

  3. I'm not allowed McDonald's at the moment - too much fat, but that made me dribble!

    1. Jo, I ought not be eating them as often as we do, sometimes it's for lunch but still. Love bacon!

  4. As you say, it's been a very bad week for the country, and all we can do is sit tight and hope it all ends without another disaster and more deaths caused by the now-demented president.

    I tried the Egg McMuffin once -- didn't like it. Rubbery overcooked egg, flavorless dry muffin, blah cheese. But I'd just LOVE yours with real cheese, real muffins which you clearly toast just right, and properly over-easy egg!

    1. Mae, I am not sure if the riots will be over but I certainly hope so. The supporters for George Bush didn't go crazy after he lost his election but he didn't get people whipped up in a revolt. Probably because he's sane.

      We use McDonalds to connect to Wi-Fi when we need updates but haven't been in one in ages. My phone is now sooo slow.

  6. We do this too! So delicious and tastes better than the Macca's version. While we were away we had an amazing egg and bacon roll with spinach, hash browns and relish. I think I am going to try making this version one Sunday morning soon!

    1. Marg, I like the sound of your version. Hash browns would be great. I hope you are enjoying your holiday.

  7. I hear you about the bacon, and I try to limit my intake as well - to Sunday morning.
    Unfortunately, the news doesn't cover the stories on behind the scenes players, who are actually fomenting the riots, they were getting Trump hats, etc. and planning it way in advance. The same people who did all the other rioting this past year. If you get your information from the fake news you get their bias and misinformation, sadly.

    1. God, you brainwashed traitors are dumber than dirt. Every single person arrested for this insurrection has been a Proud Boy, Q Anon conspiracists or Republican state legislators. Go peddle your stupid elsewhere.

    2. Claudia, I read many different sources of news such as Fox, CNN, ABC and Many more. Not sure what single source you may read/watch but the fact is Trump tweeted on Dececember 19 urging people to come to DC because it will be a wild time; Guiliani stoked up a crowd of Trump supporters saying "Make this trial by combat" to, again, a rally of Trump supporters; Ted Cruz gave a rousing speech about protesting and taking our country back and Bunker Hill and blah, blah blah. It was planned and it was sedition.

      All of this is well documented and some of the proud boys and others arrested are most certainly proven to be so called "patriots" whipped into a frenzy by trump. Not sure what you think of the republican delegate who was clearly participting in the riot and resigned but...yeah...there was some inside help there that you can't cry it was BLM or Antifa.

      One of those arrested is from your state, arrested as he got off the plane so you can be proud of that I suppose. It surely wasn't antifa who accosted Lindsey graham at an airport.

      So don't tell me I am spoon fed fake news. I hope you get the psychiatric care you need.

  9. Oh this looks delicious! I love these but McDonald's version always tastes a bit artificial so this looks way better. We were at St Jude all day Wednesday so I really had no idea what was going on until that night and I just haven't had the emotional room to even look at any more.

    1. Katherine, it was crazy. I am so sad a police officer lost his life trying to defend the Capitol.
      Yes, you need to try this sandwich and have a hot breakfast at home. Saves money and it's better that McDonalds!

  10. Yum that sounds good! And I'll admit I did have one of the McDonalds version just this morning lol. I felt a little guilty, trying to eat healthier, but I ate it anyway. :)

    The homemade version does look a lot better!

    1. Greg, we get them when we stop for use of their internet. But that's been a awhile as Florida is raging with covid cases. I need to cut back on sweets!

  11. I'm at my desk, eating a Kind brand frozen smoothie bowl. It is delicious, if one is at one's desk and unable to cook an at-home, McDonald's-esque breakfast sandwich. But I better not look at your pics much or my stomach won't be satisfied anymore. Yummy post, Tina.

    1. Stacy, I have seen the Kiind brand, mostly the bars. You are doing way better and eating healthier! This is a splurge breakfast, or it ought to be, because if I keep eating them my cholesterol will be off the chart!

  12. You can't beat starting the day with one of these. I used to hit McDonald's about three or four times a week when driving to work. Since I'm not driving anymore, that's a habit I've lost (along with the daily expensive coffee drink).
