  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease*
  • 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 English muffins
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 4 slices American cheese


  • Pre-heat bacon grease in the skillet over low to medium heat. Also, pre-heat your oven to 350° F.
  • Shape the sausage into patties that are large enough to fit on the English muffins, so slightly larger than the muffins because the sausage patties will shrink while cooking. I like to make mine about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Fry the sausage patties 'til they're cooked thru and browned.
  • Once the sausage is removed from the skillet, fry the eggs 'til well done, using rounded egg rings.
  • Slice the English muffins in half, toast them in a toaster, and spread a thin layer of butter on each toasted muffin half.
  • Add a slice of American cheese to the bottom half of each muffin.
  • Place the English muffins on a baking sheet in your pre-heated oven, and allow the cheese to just slightly melt; it should only take about 1-2 minutes. Then remove them from the oven.
  • Assemble your breakfast sandwiches by starting with a sausage patty on top of the cheese.
  • Next add the fried egg.
  • Complete your sandwich with the muffin top, and serve it up while warm.


*If you don't have bacon grease, you can use butter, canola oil, or vegetable oil.
What can I use if I don't have egg rings?
Some things you can use in place of egg rings are metal canning jar rings, a round metal cookie cutter, or a tuna can with no top or bottom.
Can I freeze this breakfast sandwich?
Yes. Double wrap the sandwich in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag.It should keep up to 2 months in the freezer.
How do I reheat a sausage McMuffin?
Reheat in the microwave for 40 seconds. For a crispier McMuffin, reheat in the oven at 350° F for about 10-15 minutes.
