These muffins are not only good for breakfast and can be used in a variety of ways. This guide contains recipes using English muffins.
All I can say is, "Delish!"
Lightly toast the muffins on both sides.
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl. Top the muffin halves equally with the tuna mixture and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Swiss cheese. Top each with a tomato slice, then sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Sounds like a very tasty recipe. I would use canned salmon in place of the tuna. Sadly today our fish is not as good for you as it once was due to mercury. Canned salmon is not farm raised, no chemicals, no pollution to the environment.
Actually, Elsablue, farm raised salmon has 1/3 less the amount of mercury than the wild salmon used for canning does. Mercury has always occured naturally in the water and air so you can't completely avoid it no matter what the type of fish is including cod, lobster and even anchovies. You just need to be wise and know which fish has how much mercury and limit your fish intake each week.
And although albacore does contain more mercury than salmon it is still well within the safety zone as long as you limit it to about 6 oz a week. I do like the thought of switching for the flavor difference using salmon for this recipe though ;-)
I made this last night, My husband and I both loved it. Had to use canned tomatoes, as don't have any fresh, but didn't hurt a thing. Will fix this again and again.
This is much like the McDonald's sandwich, but you don't have to go through the drive thru. Just fix it in your microwave with the help of the toaster in less than 5 minutes.
Set oven control at broil and/or 550 degrees F. Cut English muffins into halves and spread cut sides with butter. Cut bacon slices in halves. Place muffin halves and bacon slices on rack in broiler pan.
Anybody have a good recipe for something to do with stale English muffins (besides pizza)? I just found a whole un-opened bag that got shoved behind the cereal. They aren't bad, just dry. I was thinking maybe something like a bread pudding or strata-type casserole that my teenage boys would eat.

Toast them and put them in the food processor and make bread crumbs. If you don't have a processor you can use a grater.
Make croutons with them.
Anna Olsen had a show where she used the stale english muffins and slices of ham in a dish, made a strata. you can improvise as I don't have the exact recipe.
They could also be used in breakfast casseroles with sausage, eggs and cheese that are easy and great tasting.
Mix at least 2 hours ahead of time. Spread on English Muffins. Broil. Can be eaten whole or can also be cut into small pieces as an appetizer.
A great way to save money on ordering pizzas! We make pita pizzas, either whole wheat or white pitas work great (mini or regular), either tomato sauce and/or pizza sauce works fine, whatever cheese you like and, of course, any toppings. It works great for a quick lunch of a personal pizza.

That's a good idea. I will try it sometime. When I was a kid my Mom would make quick pizzas using split English muffins in the toaster oven. (02/03/2009)
I use a Taco Shell for the crust and add some spaghetti sauce, toppings I have on hand, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese. Am low carb diet and these keep me within my daily allotment of carbs! (02/04/2009)
My family and I love using bagels to make pizza bagels.
We use plain bagels, spaghetti sauce (Prego), and shredded cheese. Then we put it in the toaster oven to melt the cheese and heat up the bread and sauce and that's it. It's fantastic and quick. (02/05/2009)
Pizza Pizza Pizza! Kids love pizza, I couldn't afford to buy pizza for my kids growing up as much as they would eat it so I would make them mini pizzas with their favorite toppings, which was pepperoni and cheese, with these ingredients.
Take biscuits out of container, grease cookie sheet and spread biscuits out with your fingers as much as you can. Take seasoned sauce, spread with spoon on biscuit and top with 3-4 pieces of pepperoni and top with cheese. Bake in oven about 10-15 minutes (depending on oven) or until cheese is melted and golden brown.
My kids ate as soon as they came out of the oven
So for less than $10 you have a meal and a lot of pizza your kids can enjoy! Kids can also create there own mini pizza's watching them make is just as good as eating them...Have fun!
Source: Years ago (like over 20) I made these in Home Ec class in High School and made em ever since then and I share this creative idea with my friends one who specially that ran a daycare great for her lunch program and the kids loved them.

I make these all the time for the kids and they love them, but I use biscuit dough and that turns out very good. (06/21/2007)
You can also use small soft taco shells for kids. They love them. (06/22/2007)

I make a pizza burger that is always a hit with my kids and their friends.
I use English muffins - just split in half and add pizza/tomato paste. Top with cheese and then whatever other toppings and cover with more cheese. I often make these in the mornings for the kids to take to school. By wrapping them in all in foil. They are still warm at morning recess. (08/14/2008)
If you have the flaky type biscuits, you can divide them into two or even three biscuits, the flaky layers just peel apart for more biscuits! When I make "pizza biscuits" this is what I do. (08/15/2008)

I do something similar, but I used hot dog or hogie buns. They are a great shape for holding one end and eating the other. I knew a gal in Fairbanks, AK who had a booth at the fair, and she couldn't keep them going long enough to make any ahead!! You can also use seasoned chicken like BBQ, fajita, or ranch, and add artichoke hearts, fresh spinach, and mushrooms like the big boys do, it's yummmmmy (08/17/2008)
I have been doing this for some time...using the cheap canned biscuits for pizza crusts. I roll them with a rolling pin though, instead of using fingers...you get a thinner and more even crust. Then I pre-baked them for 3 min. They will puff slightly but you just press them down when you take them out of the oven. I bake up 2-4 cans at a time...cool them before storing in a ziplock bag in the fridge. Great for an even quicker pizza treat...just add the toppings to however many crusts you want and pop them into the oven to heat through and finish baking the crust. (08/25/2008)
Here is a favorite kid-friendly recipe that not only has my daughter always loved, but my siblings and I begged for as children as well!
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Brown onion and hamburger; drain grease. Add pizza sauce and cook until thick.
Tonight, as I drove home from work, I called my kids, who agreed pizza (homemade) would be a good supper.
