*Optional.

Turn on your oven’s broiler or preheat a toaster oven.

Lay the English muffin halves, cut side up, onto a baking sheet. Spread the BBQ sauce in a thin, even layer to each English muffin half. Lay a few pieces of basil on top of the sauce and sprinkle a pinch of mozzarella and cheddar, if using, on top of each muffin half. Top the cheese with equal amounts of the broccoli florets and cherry tomato halves onto each English muffin half. Sprinkle each English muffin with a pinch of red pepper flakes and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil.

Place the baking sheet under a broiler or in your toaster oven for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese begins to bubble and brown. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy!
