Baked Egg “Mc” Muffins


These are the real Egg McMuffins! They are actual muffins with baked eggs in them. Not only are they tasty, but they are quick and easy to make in the morning. This all made possible thanks to the techniques from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, where you make a big batch of dough and the stick it in the fridge. Since the dough is pre-made, it is quick and easy to pull out a piece of dough and bake something up.


The directions are available on the book’s website. Here is my interpretation; To make baked eggs you simply pull out a piece of dough, roll it flat and then cut it into pieces. You place each piece of dough into the cup of a greased muffin tin. Here is where the fun starts and you can begin to add various ingredients. We were boring and just went for tomatoes and cheddar, but you could could get wild and add in bacon or ham. If you want to get really crazy, go for some spinach and feta. Once you have the oven pre-heated to 375, you bake the muffins for 15 minutes. Drizzle with a little melted butter…delicious!

I didn’t do the best job of rolling the dough thin, so the muffins turned out pretty big. There were no complaints though!

  1. I love this idea so much. I’m going to whip up a batch of that bread dough today; previously, without having bread dough on hand, I’ve used the pop-tube type refrigerator biscuits (a delicious, quite more substantial than I anticipated variant) and the similar variety of crescent rolls (which I prepped and stuck in the oven prior to getting ready for my 6AM barista shift – hot breakfast that makes itself). Both worked well, but I’m looking forward to having the dough on hand both for dinner bread as well as not being bound by having to prepare all of the rolls in the tube (I have no kids, so especially weekday breakfasts are bound to myself and sometimes my significant other). Thank you very much for this recipe!

    (Also, a nice deli slice of pepper jack makes this a great belly-warmer when I’m headed to work in the chill of Midwestern pre-dawn darkness :) )

  2. I was looking for a recipe exactly like this! I wondered if I could bake quail’s eggs in a basket of bread dough! Thank you, I will go try it immediately!!
