Cheesy English Muffins

"I got this recipe from my mom, but I don't remember where she got it. It's one of the simplest, yummiest appetizers and is a hit every time. Another plus, is I've also been able to adapt the recipe to fit my IBS diet and it still tastes very good imo. :D This recipe is the original; to adapt it for my IBS I replaced the Miracle Whip with light Miracle Whip or a vegan mayo, the cheese with a non-dairy sub like soy cheese, and the bacon bits are usually fine, but I can cook up some turkey bacon until very crisp and let cool before adding them. Be careful when biting into these, they can be really hot. Many people have burnt their mouths devouring these tasty appetizers before my mom can plate them!"

Ready In:
48 wedges/triangles




  • After splitting the English Muffins, cut them into wedges so each muffin makes 8 wedges.
  • Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl. (Note: My mom prefers 5 or more drops of Tabasco, but use as little or as much as you like.).
  • Spread each wedge of muffin with some of the mixture.
  • Lay wedges on foil-covered cookie sheet and place under broiler. Boil until hot and cheese is melted (approximately 15 mins).

  1. Very interesting flavour! I like all of the ingredients, but wasn't sure of them all mixed together. It seemed like too much topping so I halved everything except the cheese (we love cheese here). They turned out really good! Next time I'll only use 1/4 cup of bacon bits though since I found that flavour waaay over powered everything else.


Newest update March 28, 2008; I am so grateful and excited. A wonderful, generous, kind anonymous person gifted me with PM and I can't wait to use all the features. Thank you! I might add a couple notes or links to my page here such as forums I frequent, fave searches, and helpful info. Update March 2008: I was given the opportunity to join my very first recipe swap (I added the banner below, thanks Um Safia) This swap was really fun, interesting, and helpful. Lots of great recipes to choose from and lots of exposure for my own. I thought I'd update this a bit. It's April of 2007 already (wow!) and I might have written the stuff below at least a year ago, and longer. I live in AZ, with a roommate and a nice boyfriend. My roommate has only tried my cooking once, but my bf, bless his heart, tries really hard to tolerate it, lol! He's a good cook in his own right, but me, I'm still a newbie cook at heart. I still enjoy 'zaar and sometimes spend hours and hours on here, as it's still friendly, helpful, and interesting. :) Also, this is late in saying, but I'm supposed to be on an IBS-safe diet consisting of no dairy, egg yolks, caffeine, red meat, too much fat, everything I love, etc.... so I'm working on it, it's taking me years and years, but I've incorporated this kind of diet into my other eating, and if my tummy gets mad at me, well, I only have me to blame. :/ I've been married for almost two years and it's the first time I get to really cook for someone other than myself. (Hehe, I signed up with here not too long after I wrote this, now I'm separated - not because of my cooking lol - but surprisingly found myself again, acting as 'housewife'.) I'm not a great cook, but I do follow after my mother, who tends to estimte her ingredients and taste as she goes, but she and my sister are two of the best cooks I know. The best rule of thumb for seasonings is always add too little, you can always add more, but can't always take away if there's too much. I mostly try other recipes I find, but now and then experiment with whatever I have available if I can't get to the store or am broke, and sometimes come up with pretty good recipes. I also have a hard time cooking usually, it takes me longer than most people as I am legally blind and have no depth perception so sometimes it's hard for me to measure and prepare food. Any of the recipes I post might be estimated unless otherwise stated. Sorry for the inconvenience. :) I found this place doing one of my recipe searches. It looks like a fun place to get recipes. Take care all and happy cooking! :) <a href="¤t=curriedcurrajongs.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Helpful Link for Cookbook help:
