The essential tool for cooking up my renowned breakfast classic, the "Eggy McBrian". Recipe below!
The Eggy McBrian
Makes 1 serving. Multiply by number of guests!
Better for you, and more fun than going to McDonald's. My guests just can't live without their Eggy McBrians!
1 English muffin, halved
1 tablespoon butter, divided
1 large egg
1 slice Canadian bacon
1 or 2 slices of your fave cheese 'singles' - I love Jalapeño Velveeta!
PAM or a similar cooking spray
Special equipment: The Home-X Weighted Egg Container Ring!
In a wide non-stick skillet, over medium-high heat, place the Container Ring. Place it towards one side, not the center.
Spray the area within the ring—the pan bottom and ring sides—thoroughly with cooking spray. Place 1/2 tablespoon butter on each of the muffins, flip them into pan and press with a spatula so butter melts and they begin to heat through. Place the Canadian bacon alongside them, flatten with spatula.
The area of the pan beneath where the ring is placed should now be quite hot. This is important or the white of the egg might run a bit outside the ring. Crack egg and carefully fill the ring.
Flip your bacon, press your muffins down a bit more. When you can tell the egg is set, remove the muffins to a serving plate. Using a pot holder lift the ring by its handle. Flip the egg, returning the ring to hold the egg in position while you cook the reverse side.
It is best to have your yolk fairly well done, otherwise you or your guest might get a big yolk-y squirt! when they bite into their McBrian.
Remove the egg and place atop one half the muffin, top with the bacon, top with the cheese, top with other half muffin.
Et voila! It's an Eggy McBrian!
