John's sausage and egg muffins

With McDonald’s still closed during the lockdown, 3.5 million customers a day are missing out on their favourite fast food fix. But luckily, John Torode joins us today to show us his take on a McDonald’s classic - the sausage and egg McMuffin!

1. Mix the seasonings with the water and sausage meat, then divide into four and form each one into a patty2. Heat a frying pan over a high heat and add the oil. Place the patties into the pan and cook for two minutes, then turn and repeat3. Cook again for a further minute with a slice of cheese on top of each of the patties then take them out and put on a plate4. Oil the egg rings well and drop into the hot pan - add a little more oil if needed5. Drop an egg into each ring, break the yolk and give it a swirl. Once the egg starts to set, pour 100ml water into the pan and place a lid on it
