A couple of weeks ago I added a recipe for a Bacon & Egg McMuffin bake which was an awesome play on the delicious breakfast sandwich from McDonald’s. Since then I have done a bit more refining of the recipe and have actually added an extra layer of eggs to the mix too! The result is and even more authentically delicious breakfast bake! This weekend I am doing a final recipe test on the Sausage McGriddle bake and my hash brown recipe I’ve been working on. Also Monday morning you can log on to find an amazingly authentic In ‘n Out experience.

Still to come… a bacon, egg and cheese bagel bake and a sausage and egg mcgriddle bake!

Let’s talk kitchen tools for a second, I have been getting a fair number of emails asking for more information about what kinds of pots and pans I recommend. I am going to make a page that details my favorite pieces for you all, but until then here are a few tips for this recipe.

You can make this a one pot meal if you use a sturdy oven-proof pan. My favorite is my trusty cast iron skillet. I use it on a daily basis, so much in fact I usually don’t even put it back in the cupboard. I clean it and put it back on the stovetop for the next time I use it. Given how heavy it is, it works pretty well for me this way. You can also use a normal oven-safe skillet (many are available for a low cost) or even a pyrex pan (I have this glass set, you can’t find a set any cheaper/more utilitarian than this one) instead. For a nice square/rectangular metal pan,  You will need a skillet for cooking the sausage and eggs but the baking can certainly be done separately. I just like being able to use less cookware when possible.

If you are looking at my photos and see a gold finish to my pans you are seeing a line from Williams-Sonoma called Goldtouch (no advertisement for them here, just love). It is professional quality bakeware that I have been using with clients for years. It took me 6 years to spring for a new set as I had worn out my old ones from VERY heavy use. Think high heat roasting on an almost daily basis. So most of the ones you will see in photos now are very new and shiny. I imagine as the blog matures the pans will as well. Please don’t think you need these pans to make your dishes come out tasty and beautiful. Likewise, you don’t need my set of All-Clad to sear a piece of meat perfectly. So when I link you guys to products you can use I will usually link to either the exact item I use or if something I use is very expensive I will let you know of great, less expensive alternatives.

Cook sausage on high heat, you want the color on the outside, the rest will bake through in the oven. Remove from pan, let cool and slice into chunks. Drain/wipe fat from pan if you would like to use butter to cook the eggs. If you want to cook them in sausage fat instead, drain all but about a tablespoon and heat the pan on medium high.Break 6 eggs into a bowl, add them to the pan and poke the yolks. Stir a bit just to spread the yolks around a bit.
Cook until just set and remove from pan. Your favorite fast food breakfast reimagined!

Dinner then Dessert TIPS

 A non-traditional but fun option for a complete McDonalds-esque meal would be adding some tater tots to the mix. I would add them as the second to last layer, just under the cheese before baking. Or just cook them off on a pan in the oven the last 15 minutes this is baking!

  1. I want to see reviews from people who have actually made this. Too many reviews saying “My family would love this” or “This looks so good”. These are not helpful at all. I want to know who made it and get their opinion! We all want something constructive so we can work off of it.

  2. Wow. This looks beyond words amazing. I will for sure need to try making this. It looks so good, my whole family would LOVE this!

  3. I have no doubt this breakfast bake puts the original to shame, plus it is so much more fresh too. I can see this being a weekend brunch hit as well as a breakfast for dinner success.

  4. We do a Christmas breakfast at our house for our entire family. This sounds like it would make a great addition to our menu this year!

    1. Wonderful! We do gingerbread pancakes and I make the ones for the little ones look like Santa with berries for his hat, m&m eyes and a whipped cream beard. 🙂 I can’t wait until Christmas!

  5. This looks like a delicious breakfast. I will have to try making this on the weekend. I am sure my kids are going to love it.

  6. This looks delish! I may sneak out early and get the rest of the ingredients i don’t have on hand to make this for breakfast tomorrow. Hubby will love it!

  7. My girls have been planning a slumber party here with friends when school starts and this would be a great breakfast idea.

  8. I’m so excited for all of your fun breakfast bakes to come! This one sounds right up my husband’s alley. He loves sausage breakfast sandwiches so he would love this bake.

    1. Yes! My husband cuts it into squares and eats it for a quick breakfast. It isn’t quick as soft and fluffy but still delicious! I slice it into sticks and dip it into syrup!
