It’s probably been 20 or so years since I had an Egg McMuffin. I barely remember what is even on them. But that didn’t stop me from making this egg McMuffin casserole from Plain Chicken. The first time I made this pretty much as Steph had it (except I didn’t drizzle it with maple syrup), which came out fantastic. I added Creole seasoning because, well, I put Creole seasoning in just about everything I make.

The next time, I’ll stray from the Egg McMuffin idea and maybe add peppered bacon instead of Canadian bacon. And maybe pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar. Casseroles are great that way – you can get all creative on it. Even though the base recipe for an egg McMuffin casserole is fantastic!

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

This recipe is based on a recipe from Plain Chicken.
