Mans Muffins

Hello foodies!!

I know it has been a while. Believe it or not, the last thing I cooked for the blog, went in the garbage. Yeah, that was a recipe disaster. But here I am moving on.

Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite breakfast treats.

This is my take on the McMuffin Sandwich at McDonald’s. The thing is, it was my favorite thing on the menu, and then after seeing Super Size Me, I don’t know how many years ago, I stopped eating there all together. Well, I couldn’t not eat my favorite sandwich, so I adapted it to make it at home. You even use your microwave just like they do!

Here is what you need, per one sandwich.

1 Egg

1 English Muffin

1 slice of processed cheese, (just like Mickey D’s)

and I use 1 slice of Black Forest Ham, (cut in half)

You should have a small bowl or coffee mug that is heat-friendly to the microwave.

Break open the egg and give a stir. You want the yolk broke. Put in microwave for 1 min- 1, 1/2 mins. Till it’s cooked right. While doing that you should be toasting your muffin.

When egg and muffin are ready, put egg on top. Then cut cheese slice a little bit smaller to fit. (You don’t want the whole slice, that’s cheesy and it will run). Add half of ham, and nuke again for 10-15 seconds.

Eat immediately, but watch it is HOT!


Breakfast wraps for you and for me.

While reviewing a Diabetes book, I came across some recipes. You know me, had to try at least one. Well, the breakfast wraps appealed to me, since I had not tried them before.

These, honestly, were half-loved and half-hated in my house. So it’s like spinach I guess, an acquired taste. Try for yourself and make your own decisions. They are healthy and we all could use that in our lives!

The book is called, The Weight Loss Plan for Beating Diabetes by Frederick J. Vagnini. (No, I don’t need to lose weight. I have Type 2 Diabetes and weigh less than 145 lbs.)

Here is the wraps, Freda-style of course. They’re actually called, Scrambled Egg and Salsa Wraps.

Here is what you need:

While heating up the wraps according to the pack, make your scrambled eggs like you normally would.  (2 eggs per wrap, 1 tbsp milk, and fry.)

Put egg, shredded cheddar and salsa in tortilla and wrap it up. Serve immediately.

This is about to get wrapped and eaten!
