One of my favorite breakfast choices is an egg & bacon muffin especially after one of those big nights. If you’re looking for a delicious way to start the day, then you should look at whipping one or multiple of these up.

This egg and bacon muffin recipe is quite simple so you shouldn’t be afraid to add extras such as fried mushrooms, tomato and other ingredients that may turn this from a wow to a mind-blowing breakfast.

If you want a McMuffin like the one at McDonald’s then just keep the ingredients to cheese, bacon, egg and of course one slice of cheese. It is likely not to taste the same, but it does get pretty close to it.

  • Feeling like eating some salmon? simply exchange the bacon with some smoked salmon.
  • If you have limited room in your kitchen turn your oven on to a lower temperature so you can keep cooked ingredients such as the bacon warm while you do other preparation and cooking.
