Specialty baked goods retailer Wolferman’s Bakery, a Harry & David brand and part of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. family of brands, has teamed up with Michelin-star Chef Curtis Stone to release new and exclusive recipes in celebration of National English Muffin Day on Friday, April 23, in order to demonstrate the versatility of English muffins in recipe creation.
“English muffins have always reminded me of my childhood, as they were a breakfast must-have in my home growing up in Australia,” says Curtis Stone. “I immediately connected with the Wolferman’s Bakery team on our mutual passion for this iconic staple and was inspired to create some distinctive new takes on this morning favorite. I can’t wait for people to create the recipes I developed from the comfort of their own home.”
“We are so excited to collaborate with Curtis for National English Muffin Day – one of our favorite days of the year at Wolferman's Bakery,” adds Greg Sarley, senior vice president, merchandising at Harry & David. “It's no surprise that he has come up with some uniquely elevated and delicious ways to enjoy our English muffins, and we’re thrilled to offer our customers his exclusive recipes so they can replicate and savor them at home.”
The three recipes designed by Chef Stone, using Wolferman’s English muffins, include:
- Mini Brekkie Sandies – Mini breakfast sandwich featuring juicy sausage patties seasoned with fresh sage, thyme and black pepper, topped with cheesy scrambled eggs and a siracha mayo in between Wolferman’s San Francisco-Style Sourdough Mini English muffins
- Mini Citrus Bostock Bites – French pastries reimagined using Wolferman’s 1910 Original Recipe Mini English muffins, soaked in citrus syrup and then topped with an almond frangipane and baked to perfection
- Gwen Smashed Avocado Toast – Features fresh avocado with a squeeze of lime juice and sprinkling of sea salt, piled onto toasted Wolferman’s San Francisco-Style Sourdough Super-Thick English muffins, then topped with soft-boiled eggs, crispy bacon, frisée, shaved radishes and Aleppo pepper flakes
