125. Broiled Apple English Muffin, (G,V)

Today's recipe idea was a happy mistake. The original recipe called for a bagel. I read the word bagel. I wrote the word bagel, but I used an English muffin!  Because I had just bought a package of muffins to use for another new recipe, I used what was in front of me. I did not even realize the mistake until after I had eaten my creation and began to type my notes.

My thoughts: the English muffin tasted wonderful and its softer texture made for a better base than the bagel would have.

On another note, the apple I had on hand was starting to shrivel, so I peeled off the skin. Otherwise, peeling is not necessary. This recipe is a great way to use up the last bit of cream cheese, older fruit, the end of a bag of brown sugar; just use your imagination.

Apple English Muffin is a terrific change of pace for breakfast; additional toppings listed below.
