These slimming friendly Double Sausage Fakeaway McMuffins are the ultimate treat for breakfast.

If you’ve ever enjoyed a sausage McMuffin, you’ll know that the sausage patties are very distinctive in taste. Herby, but not spicy like Cumberland. To get that tasty McMuffin flavour, we’ve used some low-fat sausages with some extra herbs – but be sure to check the nutritional values of whatever sausages you use as they do vary.

These are really quick to make, but remember that if you microwave the egg you MUST prick the yolks. Otherwise you’ll be cleaning egg up, which trust us is no fun! If you have a bit more time, you could also poach them.
