Egg McJoe Sandwich - a microwave meal in 3 minutes $ 1.55

Few among us can say they’ve never partaken in a McMuffin sandwich. They are sort of a staple in the breakfasting world for those on the go. Here’s the homemade version you can - before you leave. In fact, making yourself one of these McJoe sandwiches (which even your average Joe can do, by the way) will more than likely save you time over even the drive thru. The whole sandwich comes together in just over three minutes. You will feel so good about this sandwich: You made it yourself, it’s wholesome, It’s inexpensive, and when you make your own coffee to go with it instead of ordering up one of those mega-expensive super calorie-laden drinks, you’ve really impacted your budget in a great way.

I thank my husband regularly for making me one of these when I'm scurrying off to the bus with the kids. It's a great warm pick-me-up that Joe makes me - and his is not just average - he's a pro at making this sandwich.

Egg McJoe Sandwich

(for one)

1 egg .15
1 egg white .15
Dash Black Pepper .02
2 strips bacon or 2 slices deli meat .60
1 slice cheese .45
1 english muffin, bagel, or 2 slices toast .20

Begin toasting your “bread”
Cook bacon between two sheets of paper towel on a microwave safe plate on medium high setting for 1 -2 minutes depending on desired crispiness.
Break open both the egg and the egg white into a small, microwavable bowl/cup (we use custard cups). Season to taste with pepper.
When the microwave is available, put the bowl of eggs into it. Cook on high for 30-40 seconds, remove the egg, “jiggle it” to move the liquid egg from the center to the edges. (you may flip it in the bowl if desired, not necessary). Continue to heat another 30 seconds.
Remove English Muffin from toaster, put slice of cheese on bottom piece of muffin, then bacon, then slide egg from bowl straight onto bacon. Top with upper bun, and Enjoy! It will be hot, so indulge with caution.
