Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
Servings: 4 McMuffins


For Sausage Patties

  • 3/4 lb ground pork , or you can use 1 lb if you prefer to have a thicker patty

  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

For the McMuffin

  • 4 English muffins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • cooking spray
  • optional butter


Cook the Eggs
