Naughty Weekend Breakfast - Corned Beef, Egg, & Cheese English Muffin

Naughty Breakfast - English Muffin, Corned Beef, Fried Egg, Cheese, Mayo, Ketchup, Butter
One of the things that I love about weekends is...the luxury to enjoy sinful breakfasts.
As if my weekday breakfasts aren't sinful enough...

One breakfast that I have been missing is..good old McDonDon breakfast.
Sausage egg McMuffin, hash brown, and coffee. Hmmm~
Obviously, my taste, my palate...not so sophisticated after all! :D

Unfortunately, there's no McDonald's near my place.

To solve this lack of McDonDon-ness, I bought a pack of Garden's English muffins, and whipped up this super sinful brekkie last weekend.

Slice an English muffin into two, slather generously with butter...and place it butter side down on a non stick pan, let it brown a little, take 'em off the pan, set aside.
...and then, let's crank it up a notch.
Slather mayo and ketchup generously on both sides. Yum. Good enough to eat already, but don't!
Not yet.

Since I don't have those artificial, chemically flavored "sausages" that McDonDon serves...I used some leftover corned beef instead. Equally unhealthy, equally sinful, and probably more delicious ;)

I love corned beef the best when it's fried with a bit of oil until you get some of crispy bits...yum! After frying, dump a generous amount of it on the buttered, mayoed, ketchuped muffin.

Then fry an egg...I like mine over easy with some crispy white bits. So heat up quite a bit of oil (I've already mentioned that this is gonna be unhealthy and sinful, right? :D)...crack the egg, let some parts get crispy, and flip. Almost immediately, transfer the egg on the other side of the muffin, we want runny egg yolk, my friend :D

Top the egg up with a slice of cheddar cheese...and the history.

Is there anything sexier than biting into this tower of sin, including the runny egg yolk?

Well, I can tell you that it's not sexy when the yolk's dripping all over your white sofa.
So, handle with care, folks!

This is only Wednesday but I'm looking forward to the weekend already :)

This looks sooo good. Awww I'm craving for Macs now. Pity I dont have a bag of English muffins and corned beef to make a delicious breakfast like yours. Yummy!

Joanne said...

I like you DIY mentality. And your weekend breakfasts. Sounds delish.

Yummy! I totally dig this kind of breakfast. With a bit of sweet chili sauce, lagi bagus!

That looks even better than McD's muffin! I usually dislike McD, but do love their breakfast selection.

What is this 'cut in half' nonsense???? You should just use two muffins.
