Confession time… My husband gets up early for work. Most of the time he skips breakfast and makes a stop at the nearest gas station for a sugar filled doughnut or greasy breakfast burrito. Ugh! Back in the day and 2 kids ago, I had a hot breakfast ready for him every morning. Over time, our increasingly busy schedules made this less of a priority. I am feeling guilty now, so something must be done! One of my new year resolutions is to revive my domestic diva and come up with some prep ahead/batch cook recipes I can send him off to work with. One of his favorite fast food items is the McDonald’s Sausage Egg McMuffin. Thank you Pinterest for this healthier, cost friendly, make at home version!
Pre-heat oven to 350. Spray muffin or whoopie pie pan with cooking spray. Crack 1 egg into each tin. Cook approx 10-15 minutes depending on how you like your eggs.
I bought a sausage roll and made my own sausage patties (about 2-3 oz each cooked in the skillet until done). You can also buy pre-made patties in the freezer section of your local grocery store for quicker assembly and less mess.
Let your eggs and sausage patties cool. Lightly butter insides of English muffins. Assemble the McMuffins, each with an egg, a sausage patty and slice of cheese.
You can serve immediately, store in the refrigerator or freeze individually wrapped in foil. If you freeze them, I have found it works best to pull them out of the freezer and let them thaw over night. In the morning place in the oven at 350 for 10-20 minutes until warmed all the way through.

I originally tried a regular sized muffin tin for the eggs but the size was all wrong. While scouting Amazon for a bigger muffin tin, I cam across this Wilton Nonstick 12-Cavity Whoopie Pie Pan. It’s perfect!
The eggs come out just the right size!
I would love more ideas and suggestions for make ahead breakfasts! What is a favorite at your house?
