Aurora Denney of Spencer, Wisconsin shares this easy method for dressing up ordinary English muffins. "I often serve these scrumptious muffins with maple syrup, seasonal fruit and pork sausage patties or links," she says.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
