English Muffins

I have suddenly been able to obtain English Muffins.

Can anyone suggest a good way to use them, please? What can I put on them? Should I toast them first?

All suggestions welcome.

There are lots of ways to use English Muffins, but my favorite way for breakfast is to toast them (mine in the toaster oven with a bit of butter)(dh uses the toaster with no butter) and spread my favorite jelly, jam or preserves on them. Some use peanut butter as a spread, some cream cheese, some even toast with cheese on them. Also with a cooked breakfast just toasted with butter and no jelly, etc. I'm sure you will hear from others with their favorite ways.

PIZZA MUFFINS
Being from a family of 8 children and everyone not like the same things on their pizza. My mom made pizza muffins. She split them in 1/2 and lay them out on a sheet pans and place pizza sauce on them. Then in separte dishes she had all kinds of things to put on top. pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, onions, mushrooms, parm. cheese, mozzerella cheese, mushrooms, olives and green peppers. We would all fix our own and we were all happy. This and a big green sald and Kool aid-- made us all happy on Saturday nights . I rember we couldn't wait for the ALL in the Family to come on Tv on. . Now we are going back some years now -- I still fix them today.

I am a purist. I like then toasted as they are nice and golden brown and then slathered with butter.

When I was young, English Muffin Pizzas were what we ate after school all the time. They were easy to make and tasty. We would split them, put a spoonful of red sauce and then some cheese and maybe some toppings like pepperoni if we had any and then pop into the toaster oven until the cheese melted.

I second both the purist & pizza advice!!

I like mine either slathered in butter, or toasted & then covered with pizza sauce & melted mozzarella cheese.

They are also great for fried egg sandwiches with ham or bacon and cheese.

Toasted, with a bit of butter, with many slices of avocado is always a welcome treat for me!

When I was young, my mom would make creamed egg or creamed tuna and serve it on english muffins. Another idea would be something like creamed chipped beef. Anything creamy is good, as it is held by the 'nooks and crannies'.
