  • 1 English Muffin sliced
  • 1 slice lean Canadian bacon
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • salt to taste
  • 1 ice cube


  • Lightly toast the English muffin until the interior beings to turn golden brown and then butter the inside of each slice.
  • While the English muffin is toasting spray your egg ring with cooking spray and place it in a lightly buttered nonstick skillet on medium heat.
  • Add egg to the round egg ring and pop the yolk with a pointed utensil, then sprinkle the egg lightly with salt.
  • Add one ice cube to the hot pan and cover with a lid. The steam created allows the top of the egg to firm up while the bottom cooks.
  • Once the bottom of the egg is cooked and the top is starting to firm up flip the egg and remove the ring. Slide a knife around the edges of the ring to separate it from the egg if it is sticking. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • Add slice of Canadian bacon to the skillet and cook until it is heated through, flipping once.


  • Add a slice of American cheese to the bottom half of the English muffin.
  • Top cheese with egg patty.
  • Add Canadian bacon and cover with the top slice of the English muffin.


If using this as a Sausage McMuffin with Egg recipe, substitute a flatten round of sausage instead of Canadian bacon. Ensure the raw sausage patty is initially larger than the size of the sandwich because it will shrink while cooking.
