Ok theses are Darryl’s creation….from my inspiration….  Take English muffins and lay them out on a cookies sheet…. Next slice up tomatoes and saute them in a pan, this is what Darryl calls his secret sauce… not so sure what he adds, but I think some pepper and garlic… then once the tomatoes are cooked down a bit spread them on the muffins….add toppings… let your imagination run wild … we had some mozzarella, goat cheese, basil, rosemary, onions, peppers,  and peperoni…
