Quick Tips and Variations For The Best English Muffin Sandwiches
Super customizable you can make these any way you want. Just make them!
- Egg: Flipping the egg gives it an extra layer, if you want a thinner sandwich, do not flip it. But you do want eggs similar to the omelet consistency. This way they will stay on the English muffin better. You can also make a large amount of egg at once in the oven. Use 12 eggs, 2 Tablespoons of cream, and salt and pepper. Whisk till it’s super good and mixed. Place in a well-greased 9×13 pan and bake at 325 for 18-22 minutes. then cut into squares.
- Meat Options: Sausage isn’t the only thing you can use. Bacon, Ham, or no meat at all are all good options.
- Cheese: Not a fan of American, no problem you can use any kind of good melty cheese you’d like. Havarti, cheddar, swiss, pepper jack, and Colby jack are all good options.
- Toasting: This is a must in my book. Toast the English muffins and lightly butter them before assembling. This will keep them from getting soggy when you freeze them. Also, place the cheese on last, place them on a cookie sheet and broil for 1-2 minutes or till cheese is good and melty. Remove from oven and top with the other half of the English Muffin.
