We start off the appetizers by shredding the cheese with our box grater and chopping the onion finely. We then toss them with the mayonnaise in a bowl. We’ll often store this cheese mixture overnight, covered in the refrigerator.

We pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.

We line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. We place most of the halved and quartered english muffins in a single layer on the cookie sheet (the rest we save for the next batch). Onto each english muffin section, we put a little bit of the cheese mixture (about a half teaspoon, depending on the size of the english muffin).

We bake them in the oven until the cheese is browning and they are to the desired crispness, about 10 minutes. We serve these hot and start making the next batch – the first batch always goes fast!
