Double Bacon and Egg McMuffin

Let’s face it: when you most commonly crave a McDonald’s Breakfast, you’re hungover. When partaking in this cruel ‘morning-after-the-night-before’ ritual you will most likely be too late (or too fragile) to go and hunt it down.

Luckily for you I’ve detailed two super-simple substitute recipes for two of the urban myths we never seem to get our hands on; the ‘Double Bacon & Egg McMuffin’ and the ‘Sausage & Egg McMuffin.’

#LDNMTips

Grate cheese and or use a lower fat option if you want to use less/reduce the fat macros.

Use a low sugar/sodium option of ketchup.

Try adding spinach or fried onions- it goes down a treat!
