1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 turn of the pan

4 tablespoons butter, divided

1 pound ground chicken breast

1 small McIntosh apple peeled and finely chopped

1/4 cup pure maple syrup, eyeball it

1 tablespoon grill seasoning blend (recommended: Montreal Steak Seasoning by McCormick)

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, eyeball it

4 jumbo/sandwich size English muffins, fork split

8 large eggs

Splash of cold milk

Salt and pepper

1/4 pound Cheddar, thinly sliced or shredded

Cook 5 minutes on each side.
  2. Place fork split muffins on broiler pan and toast. Butter toasted muffins and reserve.
