About This Recipe

I am always looking for recipes that use English muffins. I think they are the perfect base for any type of sandwich. Have you ever had a burger on an English muffin? Superb.

English muffins have more heft and staying power than ordinary buns. I cannot stand eating a burger or sandwich and ending up with bread that is about 1/8″ thick and compressed because it can’t stand up to the filling. Yuck.

So this recipe was a no-brainer. I used leftover cooked salmon fillets, although you can use a can of drained salmon if you’d like. Bacon, of course. And lots of cheese. Broil the sandwich in the oven and you have a fabulous meal that is ready in minutes.

Why this recipe works:

  • English muffins are the perfect bread to use for this sandwich. They don’t lose their shape or become soggy under lots of filling. And the crevices in the muffins hold some of the creamy filling.
  • Broiling ensures that the top of the sandwich has a nice crisp crust, while the filling stays moist and tender.
  • Just a bit of mayonnaise holds everything together without making the sandwich soggy.
