Egg McMuffins from Mickey D’s rock my world. I can eat one in a matter of moments. I TRY to savor the taste of each bite but it never works because no sooner I bite the sucker, it’s gone. My excitement is over.
I try to make “Egg McMuffins” at home but they are always so dry – even with the cheese. I’ve sprayed/slathered the English Muffin with butter to try to moisten it, but nooooo, the sandwich remained disgustingly dry. After making my Blue Stilton Cheese Sauce, which is essentially blue cheese with milk, flour, and butter (simple), I decided to use it to alleviate the over-crustiness of my sandwich. Over-crustiness? You get my point.
Since I’m “off” from work this week to focus on my thesis for grad school – being “off” is a whole other story in itself – I’ve been making heartier breakfasts. This particular sandwich is for Jay because it’s really spicy, but the heat can easily be turned down for a heat-sensitive palette. All that I did was add XXX hot sauce to the cheese sauce recipe. It was really good but my mouth was on FIRE. Perfect for Jay. Then I threw some hot peppers on top. He loved it. I should call the sandwich Jay’s Inferno or eat this and your tongue will fall out. Like I said, don’t do the hot sauce or the hot peppers, and there is no heat. You’ll survive. And so will your tongue.
Bacon Egg, and Spicy Cheese Sandwich
2 english muffins
4 slices reduced sodium, bacon (I like center-cut)
Blue Stilton Cheese Sauce + hot sauce stirred in it (hot sauce optional)
hot peppers (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Cook bacon in a medium/large skillet. When it’s almost done, push bacon to the side of the skillet and cook the eggs. If you want to saute your peppers, throw them in the skillet as well.
While eggs are cooking, toast your english muffins.
Place your toasted english muffins on your serving plate and spread the top half with the cheese sauce. On the bottom half add the egg, bacon, and peppers. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Close them, arrange them so they look pretty on your plate, and enjoy!
