how to toast English muffins-

How do you toast your English muffins for breakfast sandwiches? I enjoy toasting my English muffins in the oven. It works much better than a toaster. I add the cheese over the muffins and the cheese melts while the English muffin toasts. Meanwhile, I slice the remaining ingredients and cook the egg, it’s a perfect quick breakfast.

The inspiration for this egg sandwich came from my love for Margherita pizza. It has cheese, fresh tomatoes with basil and a balsamic glaze.
