Paleo Egg McMuffin Sammy

Paleo Egg “McMuffin”: turkey sausage and avocado middle with two circle molded eggs makes the perfect breakfast sandwich! I can’t tell you how much I loved making and eating these. To be honest, I never like nor ate McDonald’s fast food breakfasts. I remember always stopping there as a kid on our way out of town for a family road trip. Two hours later and plenty of windy roads caused my adolecent body to always (and I mean ALWAYS) puke on road trips. I was the puker. Joy. So needless to say fast food breakfasts and me don’t mix. Fast forward, I still love the idea of a breakfast sandwich so I had to come up with a way to enjoy it without all the nonsense. Presto! Using eggs instead of buns!

Paleo Egg McMuffin Sammy

Serves 1


Grab two biscuit cutters and grease the insides well with melted ghee. Place one cutter on a plate and fill it with the sausage meat.

Gently press the meat down to shape a sausage patty.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon of ghee. Add the patty to the pan and keep the mold on until the cooked patty shrinks away from the sides. Then, lift it off and away.

Clean the biscuit cutter and grease it again.

Fry the sausage about 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until fully cooked.

Grab two small bowls and crack one egg into each. Pierce the yolks with a fork.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with the remaining tablespoon of ghee. Place the two greased biscuit cutters in the pan, and pour an egg into each mold.

Season the eggs with salt and pepper to taste. Then, add ¼ cup water to the skillet (outside of the egg molds), making sure not to splash the eggs.

Turn down the heat to low and cook the eggs, covered, for about 3 minutes or until cooked through.

Assemble the faux-“McMuffin” by sandwiching the sausage patty in between the two egg rounds.

Add any toppings such as sriracha or arugula or tomato!
