Honey Wheat English Muffins with butter


Christmas growing  up always meant…

dad with the movie camera {complete with a blinding light}

Johnny Mathis on the stereo,

and eggs benedict for breakfast.

Now that I have my own family…

I take more pictures than movies,

we  listen to more Frank than Johnny,

but Christmas is not Christmas without eggs benedict.

And you can’t have eggs benedict without the english muffin.

toasted Honey Wheat English Muffins with melting butter


I made 8 large muffins instead of the 16, and they took 15 minutes per side to be cooked all the way through.

I need LOTS of muffin to soak up that delicious hollandaise

Make sure you fork split them to get the famous nooks and crannies. A knife will not give the same result.
