    Bro but..
    The sausage egg and cheese mcmuffins are waaaaay better, y'all don't know what you're talking about.
    ALSO, they put butter on their muffins before assembling ;b

    The one made at home would've only taken 7 minutes tops (quicker than the 10 minutes it takes to drive and order from McD's) if they just used those premade refrigerated muffins from the dairy department, and it still would've tasted better and cheaper than the McMuffin.

    Those "English Muffins" are more like biscuits. The texture is all wrong, they should be full of air bubbles to leave craggy holes for butter and jelly/honey settle into.

    I make these at home all the time. The trick is to make them in huge batches and freeze them! It may take a while but when all that time (mostly waiting for dough to rise) turns into two week worth of breakfast you’ll be happy 😊

    Stop putting this annoying orange shirt girl in your videos, tasty. Her vibe is wack and she doesn’t seem to get along with with anyone. Her energy and camera presence sucks and makes me click off two min in. Everyone else seems to agree.

    I think to meet halfway between a made from scratch home cooked egg McMuffin's and McDonald's egg McMuffin is getting a breakfast sandwich maker. I recently bought one for my bf and I off of amazon and it literally takes 3 mins to preheat the machine and get the ingredients, and 5 minutes for the sandwich to cook. This is a really interesting video and I hope that you folks make a series out of this(:

    I do this quite often and the key to making it better than McDonald's is to season the egg and Canadian bacon because they don't. Pepper goes a long way. Also, toast your muffins in an actual toaster next time.

  • tweetthang96
    tweetthang96 6 days ago

    So looking at the recipe, *most* of the ingredients needed for the muffin are things you would already have or regularly obtain. The special purchases are bread flour, semolina or polenta, and yeast, plus the Canadian bacon and cheese. Cost wise, just accounting for the special purchases, it comes out to about a $1.80/mcmuffin. If you factor in just what you use for this of regular purchases (milk, butter, oil, sugar), it gets a bit more complicated but still only gets up to probably more like $2.50? There’s too many factors there for me to quickly do the math but it’s still worth it in terms of cost, I think. Time and effort count for a lot but if you’re into meal prepping or something the time it takes to make these up in advance? Woooorth it. Even more worth it if you just....buy premade muffins.

    kevin demeritt 6 days ago

    A few corrections. Canadian bacon cooks for about 15 to 20 seconds each side. You don't use an egg to break the yolk. There is a special tool that doubles to take egg shell out of the egg. You rip the muffin in half with fingers then toast and butter the muffin

    Why is there so much hate on them?! I mean, I genuinly really liked the video, and to me, it didn’t really seem like the girl in orange was drunk or high or something. I think that that’s just her unique voice and character, and I think they’re both pretty enthusiastic and nice!

    Girl in orange is only in the video for the thumbnail 😂 She says "Now that I'm older, I need to feed myself" like wtf have you been doing since you were a teenager, that is prime time to learn how to cook. A woman can cook and feed her family, I feel bad for this girl. Seeing this video makes me want to make sure my kids turn out better than that!

    If I'm making a breakfast sandwich at home, I want it to taste BETTER than McDonald's, and I would use better ingredients, but still be time and cost effective. Here is how I do it.
    My happy medium between McDonald's and making from scratch is buying English muffins, then doing something along the following...
    Split the muffin and butter the insides. Heat to about medium the biggest cast iron skillet you have.
    Cook/heat your breakfast meat of choice, then deglaze and butter the pan, and cook the eggs in the meat fat still in the pan. I prefer scrambled eggs with a little half-and-half mixed in, and sometimes dill. (Another option are fried eggs.)
    When the scrambled eggs are cooked enough to hold up a bit, but not yet cooked through, move them to one half of the pan. Fry the muffin halves in the other half of the pan.
    Add a slice of cheddar cheese on top of the eggs once they're done cooking, then put the meat on top, so the cheese melts and sticks to both.
    Place muffin halves on plate, then place the stack of eggs, cheese, and meat on the muffin. Top with other half and enjoy!
    Whole process takes me about 15 minutes and tastes sooooo much better!

    Making them at home isn't more expensive. You're paying something like 4 dollars just for one. With one big bag of flour you could probably make dozens of these muffins. Then just do the math for each ingredient. All in all, you're paying about 1$ or less for each egg mc muffin.

    Can anyone do the math, muffins at McDonald’s around six dollars for 2. A dozen eggs $2.48 cheese around $3.00 Canadian bacon $4.50 English muffins $3.40 so 12 McMuffins at McDonald’s would cost you around $36. If you want to make your own muffins everybody has flower maybe you just need to buy used it’s cheap but doing so would take more time but probably worth it, make it ahead and you got breakfast for a couple days simple thought process.
