English muffins, split
canned pizza sauce
shredded mozzarella cheese
We have been making these for years. It is great for a quick meal or hearty snack. Toasting (or baking) the muffins before adding the sauce and cheese gives them a nice crunch, too.
a bit soggy if you dont pretoast the muffins before adding sauce. also this recipe is much better on bagels adding a bit of olive oil to the bagel before toppings. can also add other toppings like onions,olives etc
Oh my goodness--my father made these for me when I was a kid in the early 80's! Only we toasted the english muffins first, then added a slice of tomato, some italian seasoning, a slice of American cheese and then threw them in the oven/microwave to melt the cheese-- YUM YUM! My kids LOVE them! You can season with garlic or salt n pepper to taste also.
I've made these ever since I can remember, they're a quick lunch staple in my family! Toasting the muffin beforehand makes it crunchy, and in our toaster-oven we then just use the "top brown" setting once the toppings are on. A dash of Italian seasoning also livens them up if your sauce is not seasoned much.
These make a great snack, and if you don't have any pizza sauce on hand, try them using ketchup (and adding a little garlic powder and oregano), or bbq sauce for a different flavor!
everything can be done to taste if you prefer extra sauce or cheese, make sure u toast the english muffins, add the sauce, cheese and additional toppings and bake until the cheese is melted. i ran out of pizza sauce so i made these with baby rays bbq sauce, pizza shredded cheese, and red onions, extremely good, just like a bbq chicken pizza without the chicken
I used to make these in college and I still make these for lunch from time to time. I always toast the english muffin first and sprinkle garlic powder, italian seasoing and a little salt on top. It's ready when the cheese is nice and bubbly and a little browned.
My 5 year old loves making these- something she can do pretty much on her own ( other than the cooking part) Adding additional toppings of you choice makes this a family hit! We also used flour tortillas for a different choice and it was great. The more toppings you have, obviously the better. We had cheese, sauce, pepperoni, canadian bacon, peppers, olives, onions, tomatoes, and I think that was it. my husband loved it as well. We had it twice in one week!
