  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 12 English muffin pizzas

Ingredients

  • 6 English muffin halves
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese, packed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup diced ham
  • A pinch of chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon stoneground mustard
  • Optional: A few slices of fresh tomato

Method

1 Preheat oven to 425°F.

2 Cook the onions and ham: Melt butter in a medium skillet on medium high heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the diced ham, cook 5 minutes more. Mix in the sage and mustard. Remove from heat.

3 Assemble the muffin pizzas: Put muffin halves, open side up on a sturdy baking pan. Distribute the cheese evenly, sprinkling over the muffin halves. Put the onion ham mixture on top of the cheese. If you want to use tomato slices, layer them between the cheese and onion mixture.

4 Bake: Bake at 425°F for 8-9 minutes, until the muffins and toppings are nicely browned, but not burnt. Cut into quarters for appetizers or just leave whole for a meal or snack.
