Ingredients

  • 6 English muffins
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter
  • 12 slices American cheese
  • 12 large eggs
  • 6 slices Canadian bacon

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 300°F. 
  • Fry the eggs, 'til they're well done, using a round egg mold if you really want a round egg.*
  • Warm the sliced Canadian bacon by frying it on the griddle, as well. 
  • Slice the English muffins in half, and toast them in a toaster. 
  • Spread a thin layer of butter on each toasted English muffin half.
  • Add a slice of cheese to the bottom half of each English muffin.
  • Place the English muffins on a cookie sheet and into the oven, and allow the cheese to just slightly melt; it will only take about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove the English muffins from the oven and begin layering... You'll add an egg to the cheese covered bottom, add another slice of cheese on top of that egg, add a second egg, and then a slice of Canadian bacon, followed by the English muffin top.
  • Serve while warm and enjoy! 

Notes

*We fry our eggs in just a little bit of butter (or bacon grease) on a round iron griddle.
