Does anyone have advice on something to use besides cornmeal to coat the outside.
There's no cornmeal here so I tried to grind some popcorn. Well I only have a blender and it did OK but there were a few big pieces even after I sifted.
Long story short my wife chipped a tooth on one of the hard pieces.
I'm in trouble.

Can you get some semolina? That would work well.

Maybe just flop them onto parchment paper and skip the outside coating? They'll release from the paper as their crust forms while cooking - but no idea if it's really feasible or not. Is the dough really sticky?

I think you did a very good job there BoracayB.
The reason we call them English Muffins is because a gentleman who came here from England came up with the original recipe.

They do make rings for these muffins. Or you can take some tuna fish cans and cut out both ends and use them to form your muffins.

Not true, Addie. The guy's first name was English, his last name was Muffin. Much to the chagrin of his children, Puffin, Stuffin, and Chuffin.

Yes the dough is really sticky and the the recipe says don't grease the pan so I'm thinking something needs to coat the bread.

Thanks for the offer but in my experience between Manila and here by the time all the postal workers took their share I would get an empty bag.
