Homemade English Muffins Recipe


I love to have eggs in the morning. Scrambled, over easy, poached… all with a huge helping of stir fried veggies.

But, sometimes a good old fashioned egg sandwich is calling my name.

Toast just doesn’t do it for me. It falls apart, gets squishy etc. Bagels are too bready. That’s why I love English Muffins.

Turns out they are easier to make than I thought!
