Can you make english sausage muffins at home? Yes you can!
Original recipe calls for buttermilk but since i didnt have buttermilk i just add 1 tbsp of white vinegar to a cup of milk as a substitute.
Ingredients for English muffins
1 cup buttermilk (for substitute add 1 tbsp vinegar + 1 cup of milk and rest for 10 minutes OR 1/2 cup yoghurt + 1/2 cup milk)
1 tbsp sugar
3 tsp instant yeast
2 cup plain flour
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp salt
Warm up the milk so that it is warm to the touch but not scalding, you don’t want to kill the yeast. If you are afraid it is too warm, let it cool to room temperature.
Add the sugar and yeast and stir. Let rest for 15 minutes, you should see that the amount of milk will increase due to the yeast.
Sieve the flour in a large bowl.
Add the yeast mixture and the melted butter in and stir. Mix well. Let rest for 30 minutes.
Add salt and mix well, the batter is ready for the pan.
Heat up a non-stick pan or griddle if you have one. Using a soup ladle, scoop up the mixture and drop in the pan. (for a nice and round look like macdonald’s, you need to get a metal ring. You can get it from daiso)
Cook for 5 minutes each side.
ingredients for sausage
300 gram minced pork or chicken or beef or mixture of beef and pork
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp sage or any of your choice of herb (rosemary, basil, oregano)
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 egg white
Pinch of black pepper
Mix all together and let rest for 15-20 minutes to marinate.
Shape into patties and pan fry them for 5-7 minutes on each side, depending on how thick you make them to be.
note to arrange them just cut the muffin into halves, then spread butter, add a slice of cheddar cheese and the sausage, topped with the other half of the muffin bun.
