The History of the Egg McMuffin
The Egg McMuffin is a breakfast sandwich that was introduced by McDonald’s in 1972. It consists of a toasted English muffin, Canadian bacon, American cheese, and a grade A eggs. The sandwich is served worldwide and is one of the most popular items on the McDonald’s menu.
The Egg McMuffin was created by Herb Peterson, who was an owner of several McDonald’s restaurants in Santa Barbara, California. Peterson came up with the idea for the sandwich after he saw customers struggling to eat breakfast on the go. He wanted to create a portable and easy-to-eat breakfast option that would be ready in minutes.
After perfecting the recipe, Peterson introduced the Egg McMuffin to his restaurants in 1972. The sandwich was an instant hit with customers and soon became available nationwide. Today, the Egg McMuffin is one of the most popular items on McDonald’s menu.
How to Make an Egg McMuffin
In honor of National Egg McMuffin Day, we’re sharing our secrets on how to make the perfect Egg McMuffin at home.
Start with a base of English muffins. We like to use the ones that have been toasted and buttered, but you can use whatever type you prefer. Once you’ve got your toasted English muffins, it’s time to add the Canadian bacon. If you can’t find Canadian bacon, regular bacon will work just fine. Place two or three slices on each English muffin half.
Now it’s time for the eggs. Crack each egg into an individual greased ramekin or cup so they don’t stick and are easy to transfer. Gently lower each egg into a separate cup of simmering water for about 2 minutes until the whites are cooked through but the yolks are still runny. Use a slotted spoon to carefully transfer the eggs to the Canadian bacon-topped English muffins. Add a slice of cheese on top of each egg and close up your sandwiches with the remaining English muffin halves. Serve immediately!
