Simply…from Pillsbury

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Bunny. Congrats!

I am a fan of Pillsbury products which is why I was excited to try some products from their Simply line. This line of dough contains zero grams trans fat, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors. It is super easy to make (open the container and put into your oven) that my husband even managed to make the Rustic French Bread without any help from me! What surprised me more than that was that this bread tastes homemade.  I never would have guessed that this came from a can!  It is literally that good.  The bread just melted in our mouthes, and I can’t imagine getting any other kind of french bread now.  It is really that good!  The biscuits were just as good too.

Since we loved these products, I want you to try it out yourself.  I’ve arranged for one lucky ready to received a Pillsbury Prize Pack that will include a jar of honey, spreader, cutting board, and basket.  Here’s what you need to do:

Wolferman’s French Toast Rounds

This easy to make recipe is take off of our well known french toasts. However, if you are looking for something a little different, definitely try out these french toast rounds.

I recommend using Wolferman’s English Muffins for this recipe for several reasons.  First, I love the size of them.  That is literally the first thing you will notice.  If you are like me, you are buying whatever is cheaper at the store.  However, cheap does not equal same quality.  Wolferman’s English Muffins are double the size of what I normally buy.  I also noticed right away that I didn’t have to slice these open.  With little ones, I try to use knives the least amount as possible.  These you just have to gently pull them apart.  These are super yummy too.  I cannot believe the taste difference.  When you open the bag, you immediately can smell the flavor.  The cinnamon and raison english muffins is one of the best scents.  Another favorite flavor for our house was the Apple Orchards (I liked the scent of this one too).  If you need english muffins, I highly recommend Wolferman’s.  Without further ado, here is the recipe:

4 Wolferman’s 1910 Original Signature English Muffins (you could also use the Honey & Oats, Cinnamon & Raisin, and Cranberry English Muffins)
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon until well blended. Heat a lightly oiled griddle to medium/hot. Dip both sides of the muffin halves into the egg mixture. Place slices on heated griddle. Cook until golden brown on both sides.

Both my kids and I liked this (hubby missed it due to being at the Chicago Bears game).  Let me know if you have a great french toast recipe I should try on our next bag of English muffins.
