Along with the recipe McDonald's shared, they've also let us in on their exact cooking method which will ensure you get it right every single time.
To whip one up yourself, you'll need an English muffin (or six, because who will stop at one), 75g sausage meat, two eggs, a slice of American cheese and a potato.
And we'd suggest prepping all the items first and cook them all together.
To start, season the sausage meat with salt and pepper and shape into balls before flattening into patties.
When you're ready to cook them, do so under a pre-heated grill for 6-7 minutes on each side.
You might be wondering what the potato is for, and its so you can recreate your very own hash brown.
To do this, grate the potato in a bowl before adding one egg and salt and pepper for seasoning.
When cooking the hash browns, heat the oil in a pan then add in a spoonful of the potato mix and flatten in the pan to make small patties.
Cook them on both sides until they are golden and crunchy – just like the real deal.
While you're cooking the patties, you can get your eggs ready too.
Use frying egg rings and brush the inside of them with a little oil before placing into a small frying pan.
Then pour just enough water to cover the base of the pan and bring to the boil before cracking the eggs into the rings, covering and cooking for two to three minutes.
Now all you have to do is toast the muffin to your liking and assemble the McMuffin.
We all know that the secret to any burger – or McMuffin- is the order in which to stack the items.
So to perfect the McMuffin from home, layer the patty and egg on top of a slice of cheese and sandwich between the muffin halves.
Then serve your hash brown on the side for the ultimate indulgence – and the best part is that you can make it at any time of the day, not just for breakfast.
