"My husband saw this recipe and wanted it for breakfast when he has his "boys breakfast club" session. I used regular English muffins and they love things hot so added a bit more hot sauce plus used a jalapeno along with the red pepper. To serve I did take the muffins out of the pan and not cut it - and they scooped the leftovers on top of their portion. They loved it"
