We came up with the recipe for this sandwich after a burning desire for a breakfast sandwich, like the kind from McDonald’s with a round puck egg. The only problem being, how do I make a round puck egg at home without any sort of ring mold? This was quite the conundrum until the lightning bolt hit. You could use a ring made of onion and a quick search of the interwebs revealed that lots of people do this.
This method works great if you have large onions on hand. If you do not, a bell pepper could also be used as your egg mold.
Slice your onion so that you end up with a ring about 3/4 of an inch wide. It needs to be fairly wide to hold all of the egg, however the thickness of the ring will be determined by how big your onion is. I would guess-timate my onion was about 3.5 inches in diameter at it’s widest point.
Eggs, cracked and ready for action!
Once you pour your egg into the onion ring, patience is a virtue. At this point, you may want to load your English muffins into the toaster and begin toasting.
You have to play a waiting game so as not to overcook the bottom but not have the top be too runny prior to flipping. You don’t want to end up with a rubbery egg puck. Once the top looks to be mostly set, give the eggs a quick flip.
As you can see it wasn’t a perfectly, clean flip but the end product still had a slightly runny center and was not rubbery at all.
Slice up your steak.
Place steak on the bottom section of toasted English muffin.
Top with egg. (You could remove the onion ring if you don’t like onion that much. We are onion fans, so we ate them!)
We melted some cheese to the top English muffin half, which was a great touch. We used pepper jack, but cheddar would also be a solid choice and swiss could also be quite tasty.
