Step 1: In the Beginning...
Please skip this step if you are uninterested in the history of the McMuffinator
In the beginning, the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world. People and animals flourished, and all was well, for they were looked after by Pirates, the fun-loving, divine beings who spread good will on Earth. But lo, false gods rose, and the pirates were driven from the Earth. In the ensuing chaos, many dark forces gathered together and gained footing, and have grown to the mighty demons they are today.
Amongst these demonic gatherings is theRapidio Gastronimo,aka Fast Food. This evil organization has somewhat successfully forced many of us into purchasing at highway-robbery rates low grade fodder that is only suitable for the most contemptible pirate-slayers
But a glimmer of hope shines in the prevailing darkness... for a rogue adventurer trying to make his way stumbled upon a mighty discovery. Capable of being made and consumed within 15 minutes, filling, and delicious to boot, he dubbed it theMcMuffinator, Bane of Fast Food
He tried to keep it hidden, but many attempted to steal his creation forced him into hiding. With agents of the Rapidio Gastronimo on his trail, he felt the only way to keep it safe would be to tell the all of the learned minds (and some not-so-learned minds) in the world how to create their own.
Here, in front of you, are the instructions to create your own McMuffinator, use it wisely, and together we may over come the tyranny known as Fast Food!
Raise your spatulas in salute and cry unto the heavens!
Long live the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Long live Pirates! Down with Rapidio Gastronimo!
McMuffinator Go Bragh!!
Step 2: Ingredients / Equipment
What you will need:
1 egg, preferably infertile chicken or other poultry
1 slice of preffered bacon type
1 medium sized button or other (shitaki is unbeatable) mushrooms
1 English muffin, preferably whole grain
A portion of solid dairy fat (butter), or other edible lubricant
desired topping, e.g. butter, mayo, ketchup...
A heat source, stoves are best, but hot sulfur vents will suffice
A skillet or other pan is recommended
a food radiator, such as a microwave oven
a non-metallic, microwave safe dish
Spices, if desired
Begin by slicing muffin in half. Line microwave dish with padding, slice mushroom into 0.75-1cm profile slices, and cut bacon to size to fit in lined dish.
Step 3: Set of Operations Following "Ingredients / Equipment"
Place bacon in dish as shown in image and place mushrooms on bacon as shown. Insert into microwave cooking device and expose to radiation for aprox.1 minute.
Remove from microwave, and chop cooked contents of dish to desired texture. Place processed bacon and mushroom mixture into pan and set over medium heat. If desired add a portion of lubricant to pan. Using spatula, arrange mixture in pan into an "O" shape.
Step 4: Set of Operations Following "Set of Operations Following "Ingredients / Equipment"
When bacon/mushroom mixture begins to make audible sounds of sizzling, carefully crack an egg into the center of the "O".
Avoid mixing egg shell into the egg. for they it is unpleasant to eat for many. Add spices as desired.
Using your spatula, form the egg into a circle as it cooks.
When egg is loose in pan, flip over and continue to cook.
If desired at this point toast and ad topping to your muffin.
When egg is cooked to desired doneness (little or no liquid, and solid yolk for me), scoop from pan and place on prepared muffin.
Step 5: Set of Operations Following "Set of Operations Following "Set of Operations Following "Ingredients / Equipment"
Place muffin slice on top of egg and muffin, creating a laminate, aka "sandwich" as follows:
egg, bacon and mushroom
If desired, cut, serve, and/or consume. Goes well with sliced citrus fruit.
Viola! In under 15 minutes you have created the McMuffinator. Consume it with the delight of knowing your have dealt Rapidio Gastronimo the a cruel blow, and that what you are eating is somewhat healthy for the average human.
Live long and prosper,
Rogue Adventurer, and Rocket Scientist to boot
