I was watching an episode of The Chew a few days ago as I am known to do on occasion (ok ok, I am an addict of the show) and Michael Symon was making an egg bake with ham sandwiches. The show went to commercial and before I could reach for the Tivo remote to jump ahead to the next segment I saw a McDonald’s breakfast commercial. I sort of sat there for a minute thinking with my thumb on the fast forward button but not pressing it.  It was a “waiiiiiiiiiiiit a seeeeecccccconnnnnd” moment where I could feel my brain actually connecting the dots one by one until I realized this would make an amazing egg bake (casserole) and holy crap why hadn’t I seen this anywhere before?? A quick visit to Pinterest and Google showed one person tried it a long time ago (did not look so appetizing though) and I started second guessing myself. If this really was going to be delicious surely it would be a hit on Pinterest right? Nope. This dish was not even on the radar.

My husband came home and I looked at him and said “Sausage McMuffin egg bake!” and he said “Awesome! WHERE?!” and excitedly looked into the kitchen. Haha, poor guy. I only wanted his reaction to the idea of it. He offered to make a grocery store run (with kids in tow so I could have some quiet time…this man is a saint I tell you) and about two hours after the proclamation we were eating a very late dinner and stuffing our faces with this recipe and it’s sausage fraternal twin. Today we will enjoy the Egg & Bacon McMuffin Egg Bake, but coming soon (in a series of Friday posts) to a blog near you is:

  • 10 tips to the PERFECT Egg McMuffin sandwich
  • Sausage Biscuit Egg Bake (oh man I can not WAIT for this one)
  • Sausage McGriddle Egg Bake
  • Sausage & Cheese Egg Bagel Bake (this will be tested this weekend and go live assuming deliciousness ensues)

I took a pan with half sausage and half bacon mcmuffin bakes to a friend’s house the following morning and we all enjoyed every last bite of them. Some with maple syrup and some without.

Psst, I also have a top secret hash brown recipe in the works. It is a total portable magical recipe with a secret filling. I’m testing a third round of the recipe this weekend and I’m hoping I have it perfected!

Dinner then Dessert TIPS As we were eating our way through the entire pan it occurred to me how to make it slightly more authentic. Take 6 eggs (remember this is 9 servings, and uses a total of 12 eggs) and cook them until slightly (just crack into the pan and mix ever so slightly, but where it is still distinctly egg white and egg yolk separate) cooked but still a bit runny with some butter in a frying pan. Spoon them over the bread cubes but before the bacon and eggs. Then you’ll get the authentic egg white flavor too! Look for this in the instructions in the sausage bake. Oh darn we have to make it again! Haha.Bring your favorite fast food breakfast sandwich to your brunch table!

  1. mmmmm that sounds absolutely amazing! Just a heads up, some of your pictures seem to be missing, and i don’t want other to miss out on the amazing recipe and delicious food photography!

    1. Haha, actually I think it was me, somehow I had the paragraph like 3 lines lower than the image! Thanks for the catch Kaitie!

        1. With the six egg version, I did it in a 9×9 square baking pan. My husband polished off 1/4 of it and I ate maybe 1/6th of it? So if lots of big eaters I would double the recipe 🙂

  2. Breakfast casserole, FTW! We’re kosher, so no pork. I’ll be picking up a ton of turkey bacon, though. This is going to be great!

  3. All the yes. Can a get a pan to go? LOL Thanks for the great breakfast idea. I am trying to find some things that are easy for me to make ahead and then I can warm them up for kiddo before hitting the school bus!

      1. That’s a great idea for breakfast bake dipping sticks. This recipe is very ? good. I want to try it with diced ham instead of bacon next time. Keep up the good mcmuffins recipes.

  4. So…I’m gonna need you to come over and cook this for me, thanks. I can’t turn on the stove without making the smoke alarm go off…so I need a designated cooker. This looks so delicious!!

  5. This casserole bake looks delicious and would be great for a weekend brunch or even a celebratory back to school breakfast. I am looking forward to the upcoming breakfast post series but wish I could be your taste tester!

  6. Yum. This is different and looks so delicious. Would save so much time instead of making everyone each one or two. I like this idea!

  7. This looks like a great idea for back to school time. Always in need of new ideas to get the kids off on a good start to their day.

    1. Unfortunately for me that flavor is permanently etched into my memory. If I was ever on Kitchen Nightmares in the blind taste test I would totally pick this out, even by smell only!

    1. I’m doing a 90 day challenge at my gym, so I ate my small portion and eyed the rest of it all through the photo shoot!
