Breakfast: English Muffin Sandwiches

Updated on August 5, 2012
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.

      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.

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

      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!

      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!
