How Long Does it Take to Toast English Muffins in The Oven?

It typically takes about 7-8 minutes to toast English muffins in the oven at 350°F (180°C). Keep in mind that the exact time will depend on your oven and the desired level of toasting. It’s a good idea to check the muffins frequently and remove them from the oven as soon as they are toasted to your liking.

Should You Cut the Muffins in Half Before Toasting?

It is generally recommended to split English muffins in half before toasting them. This helps to ensure that they toast evenly and allows the heat to reach the center of the muffin more easily. Splitting the muffin or bagel in half also makes it easier to spread toppings on it once it has been toasted. It’s advised to use a fork to split the muffins because it helps preserve the texture, as opposed to using a knife for example.

However, if you prefer your muffins or bagels to be less toasted, you may want to leave them whole. Just keep in mind that it may take longer to toast a whole muffin or bagel compared to one that has been split in half.
