We have just call muffins muffins. The toastable kind. The cake kind are also just called muffins in most places I've seen. They do quite often have starts and stripes on the packaing though.

I'm pretty sure we do have EggMcMuffins. I'll check with DH though, I don't go to MacDs but he regularly has breakfast there before work

Yes we certainly have them here.

I love a sausage and egg Mcmuffin though it feels so wrong after you've eaten it but they're delicious.

I've never eaten or seen a sausage like the one they put in the Mcmuffin outside of McD's, I wouldn't even call it a sausage, not by my definition anyway, but I don't care it tastes so good.
