Quicker than it looks. I like the idea of trying this as a grilled cheese as another reviewer mentioned. It's nice to be able to use whichever cheese or jam is in the fridge to make this tasty breakfast. Pros: Flexible, with lots of potential variations. Cons: Didn't like the whole wheat english muffin.

Follow the recipe I made this recipe with some substitutions and they didn't work for me. I used a carrot organge marmelade, and a milder cheese. I think you need the kick from the sharp cheddar and the chutney. I rarely have chutney on hand though. I'm going to try it today with peach salsa. Pros: Quick, easy, different Cons: A little to funky

I tried this with chutney and then another version with a vegetable spread and cinnamon/sugar. Both were wonderful, even with Veggie Shreds rather than real cheese!

I'm always looking for new breakfast ideas that are satisfying, filling and quick. This recipe fits the bill. I used Ezekiel English muffins, Italian cherry conserve and sliced pears because that's what I had on hand. I used shredded cheddar. I'll pick up sliced cheddar for next time or maybe try another sliced cheese as the shredded cheddar was okay but it melt as nicely as a sliced cheese might.

It was better when I made it into a grilled cheese sandwich on wheat bread. Buttert both slices of bread, use 2 slices of 2 % sharp cheddar cheese with thin slices of your chose of apples. I used gala apples and cook. It is awesome.

I tried this for lunch today and it was good....but not great. I like the flavors of apples and cheese, but something about the english muffin sort of diluted the apple/cheese flavor. I used rasberry jam on the muffin and it did add a sweetness to the overall flavor which was very nice.

I love this breakfast! It sticks with me and gives me everything I want - crunch, sweetness, tartness and saltiness. I loved it so much, I made one for my husband and he actually liked it as well. I give it a 5 star rating!!
