I can’t be the only one who thinks the sausage McMuffin is the best thing on the McDonald’s menu, right? 

Restaurants have closed down in various parts of the world due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, leaving most of us craving certain meals that we just can’t replicate at home.

In Singapore on April 19, it was reported that all local McDonald’s branches will be suspended after seven of its employees tested positive for Covid-19.

McDonald’s however, has released a recipe card for their sausage and egg McMuffin – arguably their best breakfast dish.

It’s my favourite, at the very least. The company shared a simple recipe card with just five ingredients to help those stuck at home and eager to try out something new. You might not be able to drive over to the nearest McDonald’s for hash browns and coffee anymore, but you can slap together your very own McMuffin!

The ingredients are:

An English muffin

75g Sausage meat


American Cheese Slice

According to Insider, the recipe goes like this:

Toast the English muffin until golden brown. 

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper then shape into balls. Flatten into patty shapes and cook under a pre-heated grill for six to seven minutes on each side (or as per instructions on packaging).

Brush the inside of a metal ring with a little oil and place in a small frying pan. Pour in just enough water to cover the base then bring to the boil. Crack the eggs into the rings, cover the pan and cook for two-three minutes.

Assemble your McMuffin by layering the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese.

To make a hash brown, grate the potato into a bowl. Mix in an egg, then season with salt and pepper. Heat a glug of oil in a pan then add spoonfuls of the mix. Flatten and cook until golden brown on both sides.

A Business Insider article goes into more detail with the recipe, in case you’re having trouble getting it just the way you want it. Hey, staying in doesn’t have to only involve binge-watching TV and bothering your pet more than usual – you can try your hand at whipping up different meals too!
