This recipe was served in a local restaurant and soon became one of our favorites to make at home. A fast and simple comfort food. I usually make it with American cheese but recently made it with Smoked Gouda and it melted beautifully and was TDF.

    Note: My DH prefers to have just a dab of butter spread over the english muffin after toasting. I prefer it sans butter.
