I love them - whether they be by Mickey D.'s or my ex, who made a lovely variation. Of course, I have high cholesterol and am a walking heart attack now because of all the fat in them, but, hey, they are just that good.


What a coincidence, to have written about our family's love of breakfast sandwiches this very week:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Herb Peterson, who invented the ubiquitous Egg McMuffin as a way to introduce breakfast to McDonald's restaurants, died Tuesday.

Peterson came up with idea for the signature McDonald's breakfast item in 1972. He "was very partial to eggs Benedict," Fraker said, and worked on creating something similar.

The egg sandwich consisted of an egg that had been formed in a Teflon circle with the yolk broken, topped with a slice of cheese and grilled Canadian bacon. It was served open-faced on a toasted and buttered English muffin.

You may be making me sound dull and predictable to all your readers. I am, but I also explore wild variations: eg sourdough rolls; usually I do ham, but I go wild on the kind of cheese: Swiss and pepper jack are best, but I use them all.

One breakfast Jan and I know not of hunger.


It is easy to keep 'em low calorie-one 33 calorie slice of hard salami, one 60 cal slice of cheese with a whole wheat or sour dough muffin. Not the lowest in fat or salt, but it has helped me keep my weight down.
