These healthy toppings for English muffins may not be the way your grandparents ate them, but they will tempt your taste buds. When I was little, my parents ate English muffins for breakfast regularly. They were always one of two ways: with butter or with peanut butter. If this sounds like you have I got a treat for you.

English muffins are great any time of day – – not just for breakfast. Bays’ chefs are proving the versatility of English muffins with creative recipes for appetizers, mini pizzas, sandwiches, melts, paninis, burgers, and sides.
If you’re hooked on bagels for breakfast, try feeding your family Bays English Muffins instead – – the toppings are endless, and your family deserves a change of pace. Bays Original, Sourdough, Multi-Grain, and Honey Wheat give you a lot of options. Go to bays.com to find out what stores near you carry Bays as well as great Bays recipe ideas. There are so many things you can do with English muffins.
Bays English Muffins are now being sold at Tops Friendly Markets with on-pack coupons and sweepstakes. You can also find them at a variety of stores including Shaws in this area.
To celebrate, packages at Tops Friendly Markets will have a $1 off coupon on each package. You won’t find Bays English Muffins in the bread aisle, though. Look in the refrigerated dairy case next to the eggs and milk. This is why BAYS English muffins are always fresh and delicious when you buy them. Ask your local store to carry them if you cannot find them in your area.
