Man creates a homemade version of McDonald’s famous sausage and egg McMuffin

For many, the famed taste of McDonald’s just can’t be replicated, but this hasn’t stopped one man’s noble effort to recreate the iconic McMuffin at home.

Revealed on the Homemade McDonald’s Facebook page, the man shared his DIY creation and claimed it was very similar to the real deal.  

Showcasing the product’s trademark puffy muffins and sausage and egg filling, consumers may even have trouble telling the two apart.

According to the muffin’s creator Andrew, a keen member of the group, the version has been a hit so far.

‘(My) girlfriend rates 9/10 but I’m aiming for an exact taste match,’ he said in the post. 

But despite the high rating, the budding chef’s remains partially unsatisfied, with changes already made before his next attempt. 

‘(Next time) I’ll use a tad less thyme a tad more salt and a different brand of American cheese,’ he said. 

What’s in a homemade sausage and egg McMuffin?

Ingredients: 

500g pork mince 

English Muffins

Eggs (microwaved in a ramekin for shape) 

American cheeses slices 

3/4 tsp salt 

3/4 tsb black ground pepper

1/2 tsp Thyme

1/2 tsp Sage

1 tsp onion salt

1/4 tsp sugar   

Made up of 500g pork mince, muffins, eggs, cheese and a myriad of herbs and spices – the recreation offers a straight-forward version to the breakfast favourite. 

Comparatively, McDonald’s own version is vague in description but is said to include a similar string of components to create the trademark taste.

And it’s far from a customer’s first attempt at replication – in fact, a growing contingent of McDonald’s fans have used to group as a way to share and improve recipes. 

As the brainchild of an avid McDonald’s fan in Melbourne, the group now has over 25,000 members working together to crack the chain’s secrets using supermarket ingredients.

So far, many claim to have made almost identical ‘dupes’ to top selling items including the chain’s famed chicken nuggets, Big Mac sauce, McFlurry flavours and chicken burgers.

Speaking to FEMAIL previously, the group’s creator Joel, 31, said he feels as though people could really benefit from the page.

‘You know, I’m a big fan of McDonalds and most fast food outlets actually. I like the consistency though which is where McDonald’s would sometimes let me down,’ he said.

According to the muffin's creator Andrew, a keen member of the group, the version has been a hit so far. '(My) girlfriend rates 9/10 but I'm aiming for an exact taste match,' he said in the post.

‘No cheese, not sauced well enough, forgot the dipping sauce and you don’t notice until you’re home with the food. I could go on. I figured if i could make it myself I could perfect it.’

The ‘rules’ of the group are quite simple and require members to share only food ideas from the McDonald’s menu – current or previous – and share ‘bite photos’ of their creations.

‘Posts that do not contain cooks must show a basic constructive discussion to a potential cook. If you’re not able to make the meal yourself then call a ‘CHALLENGE’,’ the rules read.

 ‘Must post ingredients & rating /10, yes you can replicate items on the drinks and dessert menu, vegetarian/vegan substitutes are acceptable, but a level of aesthetic replication must be upheld.’  

Others have tried their hand at the apple pies and simple cheeseburgers.

To make the ’10/10′ cheeseburger, one woman named Natalie used seven key ingredients.

They included mince beef, shaped into thin patties, processed cheese slices, tomato ketchup, mustar, frozen onion, diced finely, brioche style burger buns from Coles and pickles.

‘I used my homemade zucchini pickles, but bread and butter pickles would work,’ she said. 

While Joel is still getting his head around how successful the page has been, he has been impressed at the offerings so far.

‘There’s been a lot of Big Mac uploads and a lot of cheeseburgers. To be honest I love all the uploads except when the posters don’t read the rules and don’t include the bite photo,’ he said.

‘I always knew it was a good idea, but I didn’t know it was a good internet idea if that makes sense. I’m also an artist and it’s pretty funny that I’m getting more notoriety from starting a Facebook page that rips off fast food than that.’
