They are delicious. The sourness of the dough. The crunch of the toastiness. The way the little nooks and crannies catch whatever spread is placed upon it.
They are frequently used to make homemade Egg McMuffins. In fact, I plan on devoting a post to those homemade Egg McMuffins quite soon. They are that good.
But usually, the English muffins are topped with nothing but plain ol' butter.
But there isn't anything plain about this butter. It's Land O'Lakes* Whipped Butter. Salted of course. To my mind, there is no point to butter unless it is salted. If you use unsalted butter, you are cheating yourself out of real butter flavor.
Land O'Lakes understands this, and they provide glorious, whipped, salted butter in a convenient tub for me to spread on my English muffins.
Eat English muffins.
Use salted butter.
*Also, know that when you buy Land O'Lakes, you are supporting an agricultural co-op. Yes, it is one of the largest in the country, and yes the owners make a lot of money, but what it really means is that everyone involved in the process of making this butter has a stake in the company, and that is something you should support. Also, their butter is delicious.
**Land O'Lakes doesn't pay me to talk about their butter or anything. I just wanted everyone to know how much I love it.
