Greg was hooked on the McGriddle and we couldn't afford his habit. A month in the St. Bernice of the Heathen Springs Rehab got the toxins out of his system, but the boy still craves the carbs and cholesterol.
So now we make the Cheese, Egg and Pancake sandwich. It's cheap, easy and takes less than three minutes.
2 Frozen Pancakes (or one bagel)
bowl (soufflé cup for bagels)
Stack the frozen pancakes and microwave for 55 seconds.
While they are nuking, spray the bowl with non-stick spray. Add one egg in the bowl.
Beat the egg until it reveals the secret hideout.
Remove the pancakes from the microwave. I separate them so they begin to cool.
Nuke the egg for 20 seconds. It will still be a bit runny.
Add a godawful amount of cheese.
Cook for 20 - 25 seconds until the cheese is melted.
Use fork to help slide the melty goodness on to the pancake.
I leave the pancakes apart until Greg saddles up to eat it, otherwise the top pancake traps the heat on the inside and it remains too hot to eat for way too long.
You can also make an egg and cheese bagel using the same method. Instead of a bowl, use a soufflé dish or otherwise the egg will spillover out the sides of the bagel.
Follow all the same steps except you might want to toast your bagel. The cheese may take a bit longer to melt in the more narrow confines of the soufflé dish.
Pro-Tip: Put 1/2 the bagel insides down on the inside the soufflé dish and turn upside down instead of trying to pull the egg and cheese goodness out.
Top it and admire your work.
Watch the nuclear abomination that is formed when egg, cheese and microwaves meet.
