Holla! It's my first post here on Heya and I'm here to share what I was up to during Circuit Breaker. Disclaimer: I am a huge foodie so 99% of what I'm doing involves cooking & baking haha.
I do cook almost everyday for my family because I genuinely enjoy it. Most of the times I would find a recipe online, modify it to my liking, before I get down to cooking/baking etc.
Over the weekend I got bored with our usual brunch menu, and I thought since we can't get Mcdonald's now why not make our own? I did a quick google search and found this English Muffin recipe online: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/6947/english-muffins/
As you can see from the link, the steps to make your own muffin is quite straightforward with only a few main steps. The ingredients I have used are slightly different from the article:
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 package active dry yeast -> replaced this with homemade sour dough (which is super easy btw, will be sharing this another day)
1 cup warm water
¼ cup melted shortening -> replaced with butter, this is my personal preference!
6 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
For sausage/patty, I am using pork. You can use the same condiments for all other meats (this is for 15-20 servings).
1 whole red onion (minced)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
500g of ground pork
3 tbsp of sesame oil
2 tbsp of huadiao wine
1/2 tbsp pepper
1/2 tbsp salt
The "secret" ingredient here is actually silken tofu! I learnt from a Japanese chef that adding silken tofu gives you a really nice and soft texture to your meat. In this case I added 1 block of tofu, just dump it into the mixture straight from packaging.
Finally I believe the sunny side up needs no introduction, make your own! Haha
As for the cheese, I think Mcd uses cheddar cheese slice but I didn't have it at home. So I used regular cheese and torched it up, leaving it with a few burnt holes LOL
Here's a photo of my sour dough :)
This was what I used for the Muffin. Really pleased with how it turned out because I got to use it for bread making as well!
