Method for a McDonald's Sausage and Egg McMuffin

Step 1: How to make a patty

Season sausage meat with a pinch of salt and pepper then shape into balls. Flatten into patty shapes and cook under a pre-heated grill for 6-7 minutes on each side (or as per instructions on packaging). 

Step 2: How to make the egg for a McMuffin 

Brush the inside of a metal ring with a little oil and place in a small frying pan. Pour in just enough water to cover the base then bring to the boil. Crack the egg into the ring, cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Step 3: How to assemble a McMuffin

Toast your muffin until golden brown and assemble your McMuffin by layering the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese. 

Step 4: How to make the hash brown to accompany your McMuffin

To make a hash brown, grate the potato into a bowl. Mix in an egg then season with salt and pepper. Heat a glug of oil in a pan then add spoonfuls of the mix. Flatten and cook until golden brown on both sides.
