Egg McMuffin at home...

With prices of food and gas rising from day to day, it behooves us to think cheap... to save where we can.
Sometimes a particular kitchen utensil can steer us in that direction.
In this case... the fried egg mold. These are a favorite of mine. Got them at an estate sale years ago.
I also have several small frying pans, each about the size of an English muffin, and these are nice to serve breakfast in.

So this recipe is about cheap, quick, and easy.
Got some leftover cold cuts?... pull them out of the refrig.
You will have this breakfast made before you can get in the car and drive to your favorite fast food place and it will probably be a bit healthier.

You decide how many servings to make. You will need:

1 ENGLISH MUFFIN, per person
1 extra large or jumbo EGG, per person
Luncheon meat of your choosing... HONEY HAM, PASTRAMI, SALAMI, or TURKEY, sliced in strips
A dab of BUTTER
AMERICAN CHEESE, 1 slice per person

Put the coffee on, because these will be done in no time.

Toast the muffins.

Melt a little dab of butter in a frying pan and saute the meat of choice for a few minutes to heat and give a little color.
While meat is in pan, divide into little flat piles, about the size of an English muffin and top each with a piece of cheese.
Put a lid on top and set aside while the cheese melts.

In another pan, put another little dab of butter or canola oil in the pan and place egg molds in pan.
Brush a little of the fat onto the inside of the molds.
Break an egg in each mold and cook on medium heat until whites are cooked and yolks are done to your liking.
You may want to cover with a lid, the last couple minutes.

With a spatula, place meat and cheese mixture on bottom half of muffin.
Top with egg and then the remaining muffin half.

Pour the coffee and enjoy!

This looks great, but like Steph I don't like fried eggs!
Those eggs have really white shells - we get mostly
brown over here.
