    I live in Germany and would NEVER use a packaged muffin. Bread here is baked fresh daily and so healthy, whole grain, no preservatives. And I'd never use "spread" of any kind because it's unhealthy. Use a real whole grain roll, real butter and you'll be satisfied longer. - 1/20/09

  • I had this for breakfast this morning and loved it. I used 1 tsp of olive oil instead of butter because I'm on the "Belly Fat Diet" and I need to get my "mufas" in with each meal (either nuts, olive oil, dark chocolate, avocado or olives). - 3/15/09

  • I have been making my daughter an open face derivative of this with lean turkey rolled sausage for years using a slice of sausage, a flipped egg, 1 slice of Kraft Fat Free Cheddar Cheese and 1 slice of whole grain white toasted bread (she hates whole wheat), and no butter. I ccok the sausage slice - 1/20/09

  • I will try this. It sounds good. The local WaWa carried breakfast sandwiches at 500 cal. I like the idea of what the another poster mentioned. To use Jennie o turkey bacon. I like something warm in the winter and I am getting a little oatmeal~ed out. - 1/20/09

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Looks good. It's a good balance of carbs and protein and has fiber too. I'm not worried about the fat content, fat doesn't make you fat, sugars and processed carbs make you fat. Look at diabetics, they gain weight because they have too much sugar for their body to handle, not fat. - 12/5/08

  • Something fast but yet healthy, great! - 12/5/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Great idea. I substituted Jimmy Dean 50% less fat sausage, a scrambled egg (my personal fav.), and Land O Lakes reduced fat butter spread with canola oil. I also added some 2% milk sharp cheddar cheese. YUM! - 11/6/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I usually substitute a thin slice of ham for the meat. Sometimes I add a slice of cheese for added protein. I have also made on a bagel as a variation. All varieties are easy and yummy! I like that you have control (I love the taste of an egg mcmuffin, but loathe the greasiness!) Much healthier - 10/12/08

  • I used 1/4 cup Eggbeaters with a dash Weber Smokey Mesquite cooked in a non stick pan for the fried egg. Loved it. Thanks for the idea - 8/9/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • This was delicious. I omitted the egg & butter but used 1/8 th cup shredded cheese & 1 tbls salsa!!! It was awsome, loved it!! - 7/31/08

  • I make this but use Canadian Bacon, 4 slices are 60 calories, I use 2 and cut them up and make scrambled eggs or use egg substitute or egg whites. My husband likes it, it's one of his favorites. - 7/23/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I disagree. I made this recipe, and used butter spray (0 cals). It tasted great, and the protein and fat kept me full for a while. A whole sandwich for less calories than my typical high-fiber cereal-milk combo. - 7/19/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Good idea! I do very similiar, except I cook my egg in the micro (nonstick cookware not working so well. It's quicker too) and use homemade venison sausage patties or deli turkey ham. I don't use the 'butter' either, but usually have a slice of cheese on mine. - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I make this all the time but I substitute lean ham, turkey or canadian bacon for the sausage. It's still yummy. - 7/13/08

  • When I breakfast at McDonald's the egg mcMuffin with Canadian Bacon is the only sandwich that doesn't give me an upset stomach from fat overload. Canadian Bacon (if you prepare this at home) is very lean. I often remove most of all of the cheese. - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • THIS IS A VERY GOOD RECIPE. THANK YOU - 7/13/08

  • Try with spicy hummus instead of butter for kick (with less calories and fat!) - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • i have my own version too, but if you pan fry the egg you can "pop" out the yolk when it's done cooking and that saves some fat! - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I do something similar. I cook the egg in the microwave, in a shallow microwaveable dish, just about as big around as an English muffin. I also leave off the "sausage", but I add a slice of American cheese. Yummy! - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • The ultimate of a meatless breakfast sandwich - only I use scrambled egg white, swiss cheese, and spinach to really make it healthy, better than the one at Starbucks! - 7/13/08

  • I've made something ,similar, but left the meat off. I just use mulit-grain english muffins, and pan- fry egg,in non stick skillet, and add cheese. Delicious. - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Bad idea, as this is NOT a good replacement for an egg mcmuffin at all. A regular sandwich from mcdonalds has 300 calories & 12g fat -with- cheese but without sausage. Basically, you're losing the cheese & canadian bacon, adding a veggie "sausage" here; the only diff is less sodium. - 7/13/08

  • Great replacement for that trip to Mickey D's - 7/13/08

  • I also make my own version of the Mcdonalds McMuffin. But I use 1-2 slices of bacon (or turkey bacon) cut in half. And then I add a slice of kraft american cheese on top of my egg while it is still hot! Mmmm, it is so good! - 7/13/08

  • I have made these for my family for years. I like to use the eggbeaters and a slice of lowfat american cheese. I have also used the turkey sausage instead of the morning star, less fat and sodium that way. Also, you can use toasted whole wheat bread instead of an english muffin. We like Ezekiel - 7/13/08

  • I made this twice, first time I ruined the sausage patty by nuking it too long, I guess. Next time I pan cooked it and it was fantastic....a keeper!! - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I like to scramble my egg with onions and peppers before putting it on the english muffin. I also like eating open faced with sliced tomatoes and extra onions (love those onions). and a touch of hot sauce. (Opened faced sandwichs take longer to eat). :) - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No

  • I use a egg mcmuffing maker by Back to Basics. Its great you just put everthing in and it cooks it and it really is like a egg mcmuffin because it poaches the egg instead of frying and it so quick I hit the button and finish putting my lunch together then grab it and I am out the door. - 7/13/08

  • to the person mentioning that an egg mcmuffin has only 300 calories...you are right, and egg mcmuffin does... but this recipe is trying to replace the SAUSAGE egg mcmuffin sandwhich which has 450 calories...so this is much healthier. - 7/13/08

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I'm not sure I would make this as per the information on this site, McDonald Egg Mcmuffin only has 300 calories vs this recipes 322 and the Egg Mcmuffin has 12 grams of fat vs this recipes 16 grams. For me it is just easier picking up an Egg McMuffin and it has cheese. - 7/13/08

  • I have a small non stick pan just for eggs as I find most pans, from cleaning, do not keep that non stick quality.Also us I can't believe it's not butter light,a little to fry with.That product's fat free is like warm pudding so stay away.If using a whole egg,Egland's Best really is a better egg. - 7/13/08

  • If you break the yolk of the egg and put it in a small bowl, you can microwave the egg in about 1minute for quicker results. Lower the trans-fat by using real butter, and lower the total fat content by using egg whites only (but you lose nutrients from the yolk) - 6/8/08

  • I made this morning without the egg because I didn't have time-I got dressed while the patty was in the oven. I was unsure if I would like this because I never tried Morning Star. I made it in the oven because that is the preferred method on the box. I may try the microwave next time. - 8/5/07
