Glutino English Muffins are one of my long term favorites. I always have some in the freezer. The only thing about them is that they don’t really taste like English Muffins much at all.
This brings up a great point, one probably worth an entire post, but I’ll touch on it here. When I am eating some gluten free food product, people ask me “Does it taste like regular (fill in random food product here) ?” Usually the answer is “no” and I get the predictable sad looks of sympathy. That’s when I explain that the real question is not whether something tastes like the glutonium version – the right question is “does it taste good?” And more often than not, there is no sad look or sympathy required – there is some really good Gluten free stuff out there.
Back to the muffins. I think they’re awesome, even if they aren’t much like Thomas’ English Muffins. They are much softer, and more dense in texture – kind of like a sponge cake. They don’t have the huge craters to hold cups of melted butter. If you enjoy butter like I do, you have to balance the lake of butter on a fairly smooth surface lest it runs off the side. And when you toast them, they stay fairly soft with the lightest hint of crunchiness on the surface. The other big difference, in my opinion, is that they taste sweeter than normal english muffins. I like that.
They’re not just for breakfast anymore either. They are a pretty good compliment to a hot sandwich and are the best bun for a gluten free hamburger that I have found. Makes you feel like a normal person again when you can eat a killer hamburger, bun and all.
Premium English Muffins – Toast or microwave and enjoy. Great for mini pizzas, too. Cholesterol free, no refined sugars or hydrogenated oils, this calcium rich English muffin starts your day off right.
I like to order a ton at a time and keep them frozen. I bring one package at a time to my gluten free drawer in the fridge and let them thaw out overnight. Store in the fridge until gone. Enjoy!
