These chewy English muffins have a scrumptious mild cheese flavor that intensifies when they're split and toasted. My family really enjoys them at breakfast or brunch. -Marge Goral, Ridgefield, Connecticut

  • 3 to 3-1/4 cups bread flour

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water (120° to 130°)

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Add water and oil; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and vinegar; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in cheese and enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until dough is smooth and no longer sticky, about 2 minutes.
  3. Roll dough to about 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a 3-in. round cutter. Roll scraps if desired. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cornmeal. Place muffins on pans; sprinkle with remaining cornmeal. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Heat an ungreased griddle or electric skillet to 325°. Cook muffins for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown, turning every 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Split with a fork and toast if desired. Yield: about 16 muffins.

"Do I have to use bread flour for this? I don't ever keep it on hand."

"These had a really good taste and were easy to mix up. However, I didn't really taste the cheese - may be because I grated the cheese finely. Nice recipe and I will make again."
