Creamy Fontina pesto hummus melts

creamy fontina pesto hummus melt | Suchthespot.comRemember that whole wheat English muffin recipe I posted a month or so ago?  If so, you might recall that I mentioned using them as a base for a quick hummus melt lunch.  I’m back today with that recipe.  These melts blow the tuna fish version out of the water, if you ask me.  They make a great veggie lunch option and are super fast and easy to throw together in a pinch.  The hummus/pesto combo as a spread is so yummy.  Topped with creamy, melted fontina?  You won’t be sorry if you try them.
