New Zealand has been in self-isolation lockdown for just over a week now ... which means we have all been deprived of our favourite fast-food staples for nine days.

It also means we can no longer go on a morning trip to the Drive-Thru to get a delicious Sausage and Egg McMuffin from McDonald's.

Luckily for us, McDonald's have just shared their recipe card to allow us all to make the signature breakfast muffin from the comfort of our own homes.

Plus, there's even a recipe for a hash brown to have on the side!

You'll just need English muffins, sausage meat, eggs, American cheese slices and potato.

You can then assemble your McMuffin using the following method ...

How to make a sausage and egg McMuffin at home:

English muffin

Toast this until golden brown.

Sausage meat - 75g

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper then shape into balls. Flatten into patty shapes and cook under a pre-heated grill for six to seven minutes on each side (or as per instructions on packaging).


Brush the inside of a metal ring with a little oil and place in a small frying pan. Pour in just enough water to cover the base then bring to the boil. Crack the eggs into the rings, cover the pan and cook for two to three minutes.

American Cheese Slice

Assemble your McMuffin by layering the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese.


To make a hash brown, grate the potato into a bowl. Mix in an egg then season with salt and pepper. Heat a glug of oil in a pan then add a spoonful of the mix. Flatten and cook until golden brown on both sides.

Always refer to cooking instructions provided on manufacturers' packaging, and check food is piping hot throughout before serving, ensuring no pink meat remains before serving.

And if you’re more of bacon McMuffin kind of person, simply swap out the sausage meat for a thick juice piece of Canadian bacon.

You’re welcome!
