Cook Canadian Bacon. Arrange Canadian Bacon on a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Bake in 400º oven for 15 minutes.

Bake eggs. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add a fresh egg in each cup of the muffin pan and set aside. Bake the last 10 minutes of baking time for the bacon.

Toast English Muffins. Split English muffins in half, spread with butter and place onto a baking sheet. Add to the bottom rack of the oven the last 10 minutes of baking time for the bacon.

Assemble your Egg McMuffin by placing a piece of cheese on a warm half of English muffin. Remove a baked egg from the muffin pan and place on top of the cheese.

They are ready to serve immediately or allow to cool for a few moments and wrap individually to store in the refrigerator for reheating within the next day or so or to store in a freezer-safe container in the freezer.

My recipe is for six breakfast sandwiches, but as you can see from my photos, I like to make these in bulk! You can easily increase or decrease the recipe to meet your needs!

  1. On caveat: in the actual recipe (as opposed to the text above) you swapped the muffins and the bacon (1 and 3):

    “Meanwhile, arrange Canadian Bacon on a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Add to the oven the last 10 minutes of cooking time for the bacon.”

    1. Thanks, Stephan,
      The recipe instructions were incorrect and the text was the correct sequence. You do put in the Canadian Bacon, then the eggs, and then the English Muffins. I have now corrected the recipe. Thanks so much for letting me know. So sorry the instructions were incorrect. Thanks!

  2. HI Robyn, If I only want to do two eggs, could I do the eggs in two ramekin dishes? Also, isn’t Canadian bacon already cooked? Thanks so much!

  3. Just a quick question about the recipe and your directions. In your description of how you time the three parts of the ingredients, you state that you put the Canadian bacon in first for 15 min., followed by the eggs and English muffins for the last 10 min. In the printed portion of the recipe, it states you put in the English muffins for 15 min., followed by the eggs and Canadian bacon. Which order of steps do you think is best? Just want to get it right and not overcook the muffins to make them hard, or overcook the bacon to make them dried.

    Otherwise, all of your other recipes I use are absolutely wonderful and delicious!! Thank you.

    1. Mary Ellen,
      Thanks for finding my error in the recipe. I have now corrected it to be the same as the instructions in the post. You do put the Canadian Bacon in first, then the eggs, and then the English muffins. I’m so sorry for that error. Thanks! xo
