Starting the day with an English Muffin
A little while back, I reviewed the plain gluten-free English Muffins from Foods by George. Since then, I have acquired their Cinnamon Currant glutenfree English Muffins (as shown above - toasted), and have become quite a fan of these as well. These are a great way to start the day - allergen free, and quite nice with a cup of coffee.
To give you a feel for how good these English Muffins are, regardless of whether they are gluten-free and safe for persons with Celiac Disease, they are tasty enough to appeal to the normal population. In fact, they have become a favorite breakfast item for my daughter, who is not gluten-free in the least bit.
So now, instead of purchasing a single pack of these at a time (I get them at Whole Foods), I buy three packages and hope to at least get around to eating one of the packs myself before they disappear! They keep well in the freezer for longer periods if you want to stock up on them. I've been keeping one sleeve of muffins in the fridge, and another couple in the freezer until we are ready for them.
If you like English Muffins, and want a bit of extra flavor over a plain one, then these cinnamon currant ones are definitely worth trying out. The flavor and texture is really nice, and they are so simple to toast up in a couple minutes (I use a wide-mouth / bagel toaster). I still get the plain ones too, but I now save those for my homemade "Egg McMuffins" of sorts (inspired by the McDonald's namesake).
