Frugal Fridays: Sausage McMuffins

To make Sausage McMuffins , I need only four ingredients: sausage, eggs, English muffins, and a mild yellow cheese.

16 ounce tube of bulk sausage – $3.00, which yields six 2½-ounce patties – $0.50 each
6 pack English muffins -$3.49, or $0.58 per muffin
6 fresh eggs – Free (we have backyard laying hens) – optional
6 slices Land-O-Lakes yellow American cheese (taste like McDonald’s cheese) – $4.99 or $0.31 per 1 ounce slice

My total cost to make a sausage/muffin/egg breakfast sandwich would be $1.39 each.

Prep Day: Cook the sausage patties in a skillet. Toast each half of English muffin, then butter. Cool the patties and the muffins. Lay one sausage patty on top of half of a bun then top with cheese slice, top with remaining half of muffin.

To Freeze: Wrap each one individually in heavy plastic wrap and freeze until solid. Remove the frozen sandwiches from freezer and wrap each sandwich tightly in foil to prevent any freezer burn, then return to freezer until ready to use.

Serve Day: When ready to use; unwrap the sandwich from the foil and plastic wrap. Wrap in a paper towel and microwave on HIGH for about 50-60 seconds or until heated through.

Optional – Add on an egg (if using) before or after warming the sandwich.
