All the flavor of a breakfast favorite but for two! English Muffin French Toast cups are sprinkled with fresh cherries and buttery macadamia nuts for a gourmet breakfast!
Forever and always, my breakfast of choice growing up was French toast. I can thank my wonderful mother for passing down her love of the cinnamon sugar crusted, fluffy bread to her daughter. Definitely one thing I am proud to say I got from my mama.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started to experiment with French toast flavors, as there is a world of possibilities beyond the cinnamon egg bath, drizzled with maple syrup and a good douse of powdered sugar (my topping of choice). Like fresh berries, buttery macadamia nuts and even pulling a switch-a-roo with the bread. How about English muffins for your next French toast?
No ordinary English muffins though. Fluffy, whole grain, with lots of nooks and crannies. Cobblestone Bread Co.’s new line of breakfast goods includes big, pillow-like bagels and English muffins that are light with crisp edges. While my husband gravitated towards the Cinnamon Raisin Bagels, you couldn’t pry the CBC whole-wheat English muffins from me. Who can blame me though? When you toast one of those babies up, the tender instead soaks up all the almond butter goodness making for one specular breakfast treat.
I always a big fan of cherries and as cherry season is upon us, I couldn’t help finding a way to add to this French toast. As a way to fancy up my breakfast, I also threw a handful of macadamia nuts in. Buttery, slightly sweet and 100% irresistible.
Even with these two new flavors, these English muffin French toast cups are a cinch to make, creating the perfect solution to your breakfast boredom. They are ideal to make the evening before and let soak overnight, although not required. Or even bake a few earlier in the week and enjoy a gourmet breakfast all week long. While I scaled the ingredients down for two, this recipe is great doubled and made in a bigger dish. But with only having two of us at home, sometimes an entire dish doesn’t suit us too well before we fall back into our usual breakfast of buttered English muffins or bagels.
Now that is a good morning!
