Breakfast: English Muffin Sandwiches

4.8 stars from 6 ratings of English Muffin Sandwich

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! Why? Because my day usually goes well when I relax, have a good breakfast, take my vitamins and start off with a smile. English Muffin Sandwiches are a great, simple meal to help get your day going!

For history sake, the word breakfast means, literally, to "break fast." This is a fitting way to describe the first meal of the day after a night filled with sleep but no food.

Now, while preparing this simple-to-make breakfast, don't forget to wash hands, any kitchen utensils and counter surfaces that come in contact with raw eggs.

Hi Cardisa! They are a little different from biscuits - kind of like a crunchy texture and sourdough taste. They are really good! Thanks and yes, I can cook thanks to inspiring cooks such as yourself!

Sounds great, Dexter. Breakfast is also my favorite meal though I only use real eggs once a week and settle for egg substitute the other days. Thanks!

My husband enjoys the Sausage McMuffins from McDonalds. Yours are most likely healthier. I make these for dinner when the craving strikes. Delish!!

It's a good thing I had eaten a meal before viewing this attractive recipe, Dex. I would have been so hungry and entranced by the sight of those sausage patties being grilled, I'd have attacked my computer. Thanks to you and Tyrone.
