Grilled "McMuffin" Sandwiches recipe
Casey Barber

Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to 450-500 degrees F or medium-high direct heat. Place a cast iron griddle on one side of the grates to preheat (Alternatively, if you've already cooked bacon on the grill, you can use the leftover bacon drippings for your eggs.)

Split the English muffins in half and place nook and cranny-side down directly on the grill grates until toasted to your preference. Remove and set aside on a platter while you cook the rest of the sandwich components.

If serving your sandwiches with sausage, cook the sausage patties directly on the grill grates as you would a hamburger, flipping once the edges are opaque and the patty no longer sticks to the grates when nudged with a spatula. Cook time will vary based on your particular patties, but should take no longer than 2-3 minutes per side.

If serving your sandwiches with Canadian bacon, cook the slices either on the preheated griddle or directly on the grill grates until browned and caramelized, about 2-3 minutes per side. Reserve the sausage patties and/or Canadian bacon on the grill warming rack while you cook the eggs.

One at a time, crack each egg onto the griddle and allow the white to firm around the edges before cracking the next. Close the grill and cook the eggs to your preferred doneness, flipping if desired and topping each egg with a slice of cheese during the final minute of cooking to melt it.

Assemble the sandwiches and serve immediately.
