Homemade english muffin recipe. Because you can totally make them at home.
It’s the beginning of August and kids are already starting to go back to school. I swear I never went back until after labor day when I was young, but that was a long time ago so my memory might be a little foggy.
But seriously though, where the heck has this year gone?!? Next thing we know daylight savings time will be over and I’ll be hibernating until spring. I’m going to try my darnedest to make the most of the lingering long days while they last.
The truth is, I’m still waiting for summer to show up here in the Bay Area. I feel so bad for these kids that have to go back to school and we’ve barely even had a handful of warm days so far. I think they deserve a special back to school breakfast treat to say, “sorry it’s never warm here”
English muffins are one of those things that I love, but I almost never buy. I get more slices of bread out of a loaf, so I usually opt for that when shopping. Recently I learned to make English muffins at home, an although the process isn’t the quickest, it’s definitely simple.
If you’re going for super mom status, you should consider making fresh English muffins for your family every morning. Because the dough can rise in the fridge over a period of several days, it would actually be pretty easy to have a constant stream of fresh English muffin dough if you get your timing right. That is, if that’s something you’re interested in.
The thing I like about English muffins is that they’re fairly low in calories and taste great spread with butter, jam or peanut butter, but they also make for excellent breakfast sandwiches. Who doesn’t love a breakfast sandwich?! You could also pre-assemble breakfast sandwiches, wrap them individually, and freeze them. Again, if you’re going for super mom status.
Anyway, this one’s for you Bay Area kiddos. I’m sorry you have to spend your summer’s wearing long sleeved shirts. Hopefully your parents took you camping or something fun to make up for it. Good luck at school this year!
