Rather like London Fog.
But English muffins are essentially the equivalent of crumpets in the UK.

I usually toast and add jam/preserves to mine. This idea sounds interesting, Iím going to give it a try.

I don't use any more butter to fry it in a pan than when I toast one. You just have to move it (them if sliced in half) around so it soaks up all the melted butter. I feel it's faster to do it in the pan if you are just doing 1.

It sounds fattening and bad for you, BUT, sounds delicious! Gotta try it!

When I was a kid, my dad used to put a piece of bread into the hot French Fry oil after making fries and cooking it until it was brown and crispy. Mmmm! So good, and so bad for you.

Yeah, I pretty much use the same amount of butter (a small pat) to butter a slice of toast or an English muffin or top a pancake or waffle as I do to cook an egg. I can't see why I wouldn't use the same amount to brown/crisp an English muffin.

I’m not a fan of store bought English muffins because they always seem so dry and bland, but I do like the egg McMuffin from McDonalds. I suspect they do something like the OP mentioned, because they always taste buttery.

Funny how I was just thinking of doing this as it seems my EMs(Thomas's) always seem to get burnt spots, especially the tops. Do you flip them so they heat on both sides?

I cut them in half and flip a few times to make sure they donít burn!

My favorite Cuban bakery, Porto's, makes the guayaba puff pastries, they are so delicious. They sell tins of guava paste at my local market, they come in the size and shape of an enlarged hockey puck.

I've never tried it on an English muffin but now I'm intrigued. I haven't had an E.M. in ages but I still remember how good they tasted when toasted and slathered with some Irish butter and French fruit preserves. Will have to try it with guava next time!
