Egg McMuffin frittata

Egg McMuffin frittata

McDonald’s iconic breakfast sandwich, the Egg McMuffin, consists of Canadian bacon, an egg, and cheese on an English muffin. Anything with eggs calls out to me as being an idea for a frittata. And Canadian bacon and (especially sharp cheddar) cheese make a very tasty frittata.

Egg McMuffin frittata

3 slices of Canadian bacon cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese plus a little more for the top

3 eggs
oil

Put the eggs into a good-sized mixing bowl and beat just to mix them up. Add a bit of oil to the pan and let it get hot. Add a small amount of the eggs to the pan to set the bottom of the frittata to prevent sticking. Turn the heat down to medium low. Mix the Canadian bacon and shredded cheddar cheese into the eggs and pour the mixture into the pan. Cook this for about 5 minutes to set the bottom and sides.

Preheat the broiler. When the 5 minutes cooking on the stove are up, sprinkle a bit more of the cheese on the top. Place the pan under the broiler, about 6 to 7 inches below. Cook until the top is set and just starts to brown. This is about 1–1/2 to 2 minutes for me, but watch closely.

Remove from the broiler, loosen up the sides with a spatula if necessary, and slide the frittata out onto the serving plate.
