McDonald's Egg McMuffin

Saturday, March 27, 2010



1 jumbo grade A egg
1 Thomas's english muffin
butter
1 slice American cheese (real...not processed cheese food)
1 slice Canadian bacon
1 "12x12" sheet of wax paper
Non Stick Cooking Spray
Egg Ring, or a tuna can with the top and bottom off

1− Pre−heat an electric griddle to 275 degrees. Toast your english muffin by
laying both sides face down on the griddle and applying pressure. This takes
1 to 1½ minutes. (they should be medium brown) Set aside.
2− Lay your egg ring on the pre−heated grill. Spray with Pam to prevent
sticking. Crack the egg and pour into egg ring on the grill. Poke the yolk
with a sharp instrument so it flows.
3− Butter both toasted halves of the english muffin liberally with melted
butter. Put a slice of American cheese on the bottom half.
4− 2 to 2½ minutes after you started cooking the egg, the whites should firm
up, and the yolk should still be a bit "liquidy". Carefully remove the ring,
leaving the egg on the griddle. You may have to "slice" around the edges if
it sticks.
5− Very carefully turn the egg over, and lay one slice of Canadian bacon on
the griddle. Cook the egg 45−60 seconds after turning.
6− After about 30−45 seconds, "flip" the Canadian bacon, and remove the egg,
placing it on the bottom half (cheesed half) of the english muffin. 20−30
seconds after flippng the Canadan bacon, remove.
7− Put the Canadian bacon on top of the cooked egg, and cover with the top
of the toasted english muffin.

McDonald's Chicken McNuggets

vegetable oil for frying
1 egg
1 cup water
1 cup all−purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon MSG (Accent)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
4 chicken breast filets, each cut into 6−7 bite sized pieces

Beat the egg and then combine it with 1 cup water in a small,
shallow bowl. Stir.
Combine the flour, salt, MSG, pepper, onion powder and garlic
powder in a one gallon size zip lock bag.
Pound each of the breast filets with a mallet until about 1/4−inch
thick. Trim each breast filet into bite sized pieces.
Coat each piece with the flour mixture by shaking in the zip lock
bag. Remove and dredge each nugget in the egg mixture, coating well.
Then return each nugget to the flour/seasoning mixture. Shake to
coat. Put nuggets, bag and all, in the freezer for at least an hour.
Cover and refrigerate remaining egg mixture.
After freezing, repeat the above coating process.
Deep fry the McNuggets at 375F for 10−12 minutes or until browned
and crispy. (cook only about 9 at a time.)
Drain on brown paper bags (NEVER drain fried foods on paper towels
unless you want them to be soft and soggy!).
Serve with your favorite sauce.

1/4 cup half and half

McDonald's Hot Apple & Cherry Pies


4−6 Cups vegetable oil (in fryer)
1 package Pillsbury apple or cherry turnovers
(Find them in the refrigerated section)

1. Unroll the Pillsbury turnover dough. You will have six 3"x3" pieces. You
will use four of them. Stretch them out to about 4"x5" rectangles. Do this
on waxed paper.
2. Spread 1/2 of the pie filling on one dough, and the other half on
another, leaving about 1/2" of dough around edges. Clear a 3/4" space
lengthwise down the middle of both.
3. Place the remaining two doughs on top of the two with the filling. Crimp
the edges. You'll have what looks like two giant pop−tarts.
4. Cut both of them precisely down the middle, in that 3/4" space you
created. Crimp those two edges.
5. Manipulate as needed to form an attractive, uniform shaped pie. They
should look like small burritos, only crimped around the edges.
6. Place all four, flat on waxed paper, in the freezer. After about 45
minutes, spray all sides of each pie with water mist. Return to the freezer
for at least another hour.
7. Place in a freezer bag and seal for future use, or get ready to deep−fry
them.

Cooking Your Pies:
1. Pre−heat your deep fryer to 375 . Also pre−heat your oven to warm.
2. Quickly dip a frozen pie in cold water, making sure to immerse it
entirely.
3. Drop the pie into the hot oil. Be careful−−−it will most likely splatter.
After all the pies are in the fryer, place your spare fryer basket over the
top. ("Sandwiching" the pies between the two baskets.) This ensures the pies
are fully submerged. It is important that the pies are fully submerged or a
good portion of it won't cook correctly.
4. Cook 5−7 minutes. Check after 5 minutes−−−the color should be a golden

brown. The older the oil, the sooner the it will turn brown, and that may
give you a false reading. 6 minutes is generally right on.
5. After deep frying, carefully remove the cooked pies and drain for 1
minute on paper towels. Then place directly on the oven rack in your warmed
oven. Warm for at least 10 minutes, and as long as 30 minutes.

McDonald's Breakfast Burrito

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

1 Tablespoon canned diced tomatoes (drain liquid)
4 eggs, scrambled using McDonald's method
4 8−inch flour tortillas

1. Preheat an electric griddle to 275 . Break apart the sausage, and
stir−fry it with the onions until the sausage is browned.
2. Add about 1/4 can of diced green chilies plus an equal amount of diced
tomatoes. Continue to stir−fry for about 1 minute.
3. Pour the scrambled eggs onto the griddle and mix the eggs with the
sausage, onions, peppers and tomatoes. Do not add salt or pepper, McDonald's
doesn't. Stir−fry until the eggs are done.
4. Microwave your tortillas for 20 to 30 seconds, just to slightly warm and
soften them.
5. Put 1/4 of the cooked egg−sausage mixture down the middle of each
tortilla. Add two cheese halves evenly spaced lengthwise, and fold the
tortilla 1/3 of the way up. Then fold again crosswise 1/3 of the way in, and
again to complete.
6. Wrap each burrito in a 12x12 sheet of waxed paper, let sit for 5 minutes,
then microwave 15 seconds on high.
Serve with picante sauce if desired.

McDonalds Hamburgers

Monday, March 22, 2010

1 pound ground chuck (80% lean)
10 hamburger buns (local grocery type)
10 hamburger dill slices (more or less to taste)
10 teaspoons dried, chopped (not minced) onions
Mustard
Ketchup
Salt, Pepper, and MSG

Divide 1 lb of beef into 10 equal sized balls. Form a patty out of
each ball about 4 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. Do this
on waxed paper. Now freeze the patties for at least an hour
(this keeps them from falling apart when grilled).
Combine dried onions with water in a small container. Add enough
water so the onions can hydrate (You can't add too much, just be
sure to drain well before using).
Preheat a griddle or skillet to medium−high. In the meantime,
toast the hamburger buns until just golden.
Lay the frozen patties on the hot surface. After about 20 seconds,
"sear" them by applying even pressure with the back of a metal
spatula; do this only for about 2 seconds. After searing them,
sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and MSG to taste.
After about one minute since searing the patties, turn them over.
Careful, don't tear the side you seared. Add about a teaspoon of
your prepared onions on top.
Quickly dress your buns. On the crown part of buns (top),
Mustard first....five "kisses" the diameter of a pencil evenly
spaced in a circle about a half inch from the edge. Then the Ketchup,
five squirts the size of a nickle.. in the pattern found on dice.
Place the pickle in the middle.
By the time you finish that, the meat will be done (about 1 minute
or 1:10 after turning). Remove the meat and tilt to the side to allow
excess fat to drain off. Use your free hand to hold down the onions.
Place patties onion side up on the dressed crown, top with toasted
heels (the burger will be upside−down). Flip upright and serve.

McDonald's Big Mac Sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons French dressing
4 teaspoons sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon finely minced white onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt

McDonald's Big Mac

Sunday, March 21, 2010

1 regular sized sesame seed bun
1 regular sized plain bun
2 previously frozen regular beef patties
2 tablespoons Big Mac sauce
2−teaspoons reconstituted onions
1 slice real American cheese
2 hamburger pickle slices
1/4 Cup −shredded iceberg lettuce

Discard the crown half of the regular bun, retaining the heel. The cooking
method for the Big Mac is basically the same as the regular burgers, only
the bun toasting method is slightly different. In the Big Mac's case you
toast the bottom (heel) first. Do this along with the extra heel. (this will
be your middle bun.) You can use the crown (top) as the middle bun also,
just cut the rounded side off. However you will have to toast both sides of it.
Cook the two−all−beef−patties just like the regular burgers. After the bun
parts are toasted, put 1 tablespoon of "Mac sauce" on each of the
heels.(toasted side.) Then add 1/8 cup shredded lettuce to each.On the true
bottom bun, place one thin slice of American cheese on top of the lettuce.
On the extra "heel", the middle bun, place two pickle slices on top of the
lettuce. Toast the "crown" (top) of the bun also. When the meat patties are
done, place them one at a time on both prepared buns. Stack the middle bun
on top of the bottom bun, and put the crown on top.
