Today, April 23 is English Muffin Day.  Did you know that “English Muffins,” as we know them aren’t specifically English, and truly, you’ll be hard put to find anything quite like an “English Muffin,” in England.  Samuel Bath Thomas emigrated from Plymouth, England to New York City in 1874.  In 1880 he opened a bakery and began selling what he called “Toasting Crumpets,”  small individual breads designed to be split in half and toasted.


No matter what the origin, hats off to the “English Muffin.”  Mornings would be quite dreary with out toasted and buttered English Muffins topped with marmalade.  AND how could you make Eggs Benedect without English Muffins?
