How To Make The Perfect English Muffin

What is an English Muffin?

The English muffin has a unique quality. They may be soft on the inside but get crispy on the outside due to their crevices or other characteristics. We can all agree that English muffins are lovely regardless of the cause.

For a traditional breakfast, toast an English muffin and spread butter and jam. For a complete brunch, get inventive and add avocado, bacon, and eggs to your muffin. With everything from tuna salad to roasted vegetables, English muffins are a terrific addition to any lunchtime sandwich.
