Egg mcmuffin recipe
Slice peppers in to about 1” thick rings. We like using sweet peppers, but any kind will do.
Hint: One pepper will make 3-5 slices depending on the size of the pepper. You want to get large, uniformly sized peppers.
Homemade egg mcmuffin
Heat a frying pan or griddle to medium-high (350 F) and light butter.
Now crack an egg into each of the pepper rings. We cook ours on a griddle as we can get sandwiches for all 5 of us ready at the same time. If your kids prefer you can scramble the egg in a small bowl before pouring it in the pepper (like the back pepper in the picture)
HINT: Press down around the pepper walls to make a tight seal for 5 seconds to avoid any of the egg creeping under the pepper wall.
Cook for about 5-7 minutes and then flip gently with a spatula. The pepper cooks up beautifully at the same time as the egg.
We sprinkle with salt and pepper at this point.
Breakfast egg recipes
As soon as you flip the peppers, top with a slice of White American or Pepper Jack cheese. It will get nice and melted as it cooks during the final 5 minutes.
Breakfast on the go recipes
Meanwhile, toast an English Muffin (or use homemade English muffins like we do) in the toaster.
Then put the pepper egg disc in the English Muffin. Serve warm!
