An English muffin has never been baked in an oven. An English muffin is cooked on a griddle: you notice a wide side coated with corn meal; that is the side that went on the griddle first. The other side looks much smaller and has no corn meal; that is the side after the muffin was flipped.
Therefore, you should always toast an English muffin.
Do you know the difference between SAUTEING OR SWEATING?
These two techniques become confused often.
Sautéing is done at high temperature. Sweating is at low temperature.
Both techniques are done on the stove top with a small amount of fat.
Sweating is mostly used for vegetables. Sautéing is usually with protein to sear in juices such as fish and meat.
