Thanks to Faith for bringing me three Bread Basket English muffins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Put your nose right up to the screen….
…a little closer…
…Now breathe in – do you smell it? The donut yeastiness?!
The Two Towers:
After broiling the muffins, I smothered them in a mix of greek yogurt and pumpkin with cinnamon, then added TJ’s pumpkin butter, banana slices, Nutty’s Butterscotch and ground flax.
Q: How do you freeze an English muffin?
A: Take it outside in 27* weather
Our warm front has passed! I had to pop this back in the oven after photography to heat it all back up!
Served with the café of the day
Have a great day!!
Andrea @ reallifeinrofo says
Your breakfasts always inspire me! Thanks for a great start to the day!
Mary (Sisters Running the Kitchen) says
yummm. I wish I could smell it through the computer screen. Looks delicious!
Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday says
Does Matt ever make English Muffins at home? I made them before and I must say they’re pretty awesome straight out of the pan.
Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg says
Mmmm…that looks like such a comforting breakfast! Have a great day, Kath!
sweeter salt says
I love bakery english muffins – so much better than store bought. YUM!
Cathy B. @ Bright Bakes says
looks great…I’m all about “dough factor” too! Just be glad your not up here in Wisconsin…when I head out to the porch for better photography light, things get frosty indeed! it was zero here this morning….

Delicious! There is something so comforting about cinnamon raisin anything.
Stacy @ Every Little Thing says
I have to reheat things sometimes before eating because of excessive photography 🙂 Happy Tuesday!
Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey says
Yummers… I would love to find an English muffin with such minimal ingredients. Looks delicious!
Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) says
We actually had doughnuts today! My mother-in-law gave us a doughnut maker she had stashed away and I played with it today. Your breakfast looks yummy! Try to stay warm today! It is freezing here too!

Looks scrumptious! I’ve never tried using yogurt as a spread, but that’s a fantastic idea. Have you ever tried flavoring plain yogurt with an extract? That just might be my next mission.
faith @ gracefulfitness says
I add vanilla and stevia often and it’s delicious! I’m sure almond or lemon would be great too.
Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun says
I was just thinking of that the other day…how my food seemed a bit lukewarm after photography. I wondered how many of us have to reheat things because of our photos. Now I know there’s at least someone else out there. Ha!
The Peanut Butter Addict says
All that pumpkin-y goodness looks delicious!
Katy (The Singing Runner) says
My goodness, looks delicious! I can’t get over it! 🙂
That look soo delicious! You make my breakfasts seem quite bland 🙂
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is says
That breakfast looks delicious.
Sarah @ See Sarah Graduate says
OMG. They look incredible!
Michele @ Healthy Cultivations says
Butterscotch is appearing all over the blog world recently. It makes me crave some of the goodness.
Natalia - a side of simple says
Mmm “donuts” for breakfast. Not a bad thing at all! The few times I DO take pictures of my food, I always have to reheat it. You’re not alone!
Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen says
Our warm front has passed too, brrrr, 30 degrees needs to go away – even though it is completely normal for Boston! haha Those look so delicious – I’ve been on an English muffin kick (even going so far as to hunt down Alton Brown’s recipe for them).
Suzanne @ Continuing My Education says
My mom had these when I was home for Christmas…yummy!!
I am guessing that coffee cup was empty when photographed outside, unless you were trying to create iced coffee quickly and efficiently. It all looks AMAZING!
It was full!! But good idea to have it be empty 🙂
Heather (Heather's Dish) says
you make the most gourmet breakfasts…you should open a restaurant with all of the things that you use in yours!
Kate (What Kate is Cooking) says
Those English muffins look great!
Erin (Shortcut to Bliss) says
Mmmmmm, this is inspiring me to get out of bed (we are west coast) and make something yummy before work.
Oh my golly, that looks delightful!
Caitlyn (A Spoonful of Life) says
I think I smelt the yeastiness!!! Ha ha! Looks like a delightful breakfast. English muffins are incredible, especially when topped with bananas and nut butter!
Amanda (Eating Up) says
Ohh I remember those!
Your breakfast looks so good! Every morning your breakfasts look delicious. I think I need to star taking some tips from you. Mine are always so boring.
I had doughy english muffins at my mother-in-law’s house over break – they were amazing!
Enjoy your day!
Allison @ Happy Tales says
Great looking breakfast. Or lunch, Or snack. I would love to eat that right now 😀
Lauren at KeepItSweet says
You make some of the best looking breakfasts!
Anna @ ciaotochow says
These look so delectable – love the photographs, Kath!
It’s freezing here in Oregon too! Literally, it is 25 degrees right now.
Kath, please don’t forget to post Karen’s Pesto recipe!
I probably won’t get it up until after Montana, but keep reminding me please!
Mary Frances says
See Kath’s Post from July 1, 2010, when she finished her RD… way back when Great Harvest made regular appearances on the Blog. The jist of that post was celebration and …
“Karen made sun-dried tomato pesto to go on top. (2 jars of sun-dried tomatoes in oil, undrained, 4 big cloves garlic, 2 big handfuls basil, ~1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup walnuts – all whirred together in a food processor)”
Also, all this time somehow I was feeling sorry for you (but thankful for your sharing) that you had to eat cold food. I especially enjoy my food hot, because growing up in a huge family frequently food was not. I thought it would be wasteful to prepare that extra plate for photography after you finished your ‘hot’ meal, so I never suggested it. What a novel idea to reheat it… I hope it is just as good reheated though. You are appreciated for all of your sharing and talent. Thank you.
Shannon @ A Better Me says
Perfect cold morning breakfast!
Rachel @ The Avid Appetite says
Looks delish! I’m loving that pumpkin hasn’t gone out of style yet 🙂
Liz @ Tip Top Shape says
Imagine if we could actually smell that through the screen!! That would be pretty much awesome, lol. Those English Muffins look delicious!!
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
I had to reheat my pancakes this morning too!! I think it’s one of those things that comes along with being a food blogger!
Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free says
Your gluten filled breakfast always make me drool! I need to find a good gluten free english muffin(if thats even possible), YUM!
paper claire says
Does Great Harvest ever sell their bread to a grocery for the grocery to resell to their customers?
I think a few do, but I’m guessing that most do not
Have a great day Kath! That breakfast would certainly give me the energy. 🙂 Looks delicious.
That breakfast looks amazing! Thanks so much for clearing up my kefir/drinkable yogurt confusion 🙂
Whoa. Those look incredible!! I wish we were meeting up in Dillon, MT!!! 🙂
Katherine: Unemployed says
plus coffee makes it all great
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table says
That was just cruel asking everyone to smell those muffins! 🙂
I wish I’d remember to read your blog before making breakfast – your b’fast always looks so luxurious.
[email protected] says
Towers of AWESOME! 🙂
There is so much drooling going on here, I think I need a mop.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
That’s all 🙂
Those seriously look incredible. My mom used to buy a similar cinnamon raisin english muffin, so big and doughy! They definitely felt like more of a treat than the typical dry english muffin with nooks and cranies 🙂
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
oh man oh man! i have been craving english muffins for a while, but a good doughy one will probably be more difficult for me to come by…
chelsey @ clean eating chelsey says
That looks like an awesome breakfast! I have one english muffin left – I think your breakfast is its destiny!!
The title of your post inspired a donut craving for me 🙂 It’s a good thing I’m not near to a Dunkin Donuts!
Justeen @ Blissful Baking says
That breakfast looks WONDERFUL. I bet the English muffins smell heavenly!!
Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] says
love the orange & purple color scheme today 🙂
Tricia @ Saving room for dessert says
That reminded me there was a Bread Basket store in Chattanooga, TN when I used to live there. They had these GIANT, incredible cream cheese muffins and I would buy them for clients of my business. Good gosh they smelled incredible. It must have come to me when I sniffed the computer screen! Ha ha – have a great day 🙂
Namaste Gurl says
Mmm, Iove the smell of cinnamon- raison anything. Have you tried Ezekial’s cinnamon- raison english muffins and bread? My favorite, un- processed version by far 🙂
Christine (The Raw Project) says
Yum, another amazing and gorgeous breakfast! I wish I had more time on week mornings for breakfast like this!
Jess @ atasteofconfidence says
Photographs are beautiful!
I never thought of broiling English muffins… Good thinking 🙂 Pittsburgh’s warm front is gone as well haha bring on the snow !
Mary @ Bites and Bliss says
Don’t you wish Mother Nature would make up her mind already??
Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey says
Commenting again b/c I always forget to ask…
How long do you keep your pumpkin in the fridge? Once opened and in a different container… etc, etc…
Unless I am using it for a specific recipe, I almost always end up throwing a little bit out. I am *very* careful with food, expiration dates, and the like – but hate to waste! You always seem to use a little bit here, and a little bit there, so I just thought I’d see how long you keep it for?
I generally use it within 7-10 days. Don’t think I’ve ever gone longer than 10. I put it from the can into a glass storage container.
Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey says
I always put it into glass or bpa-free plastic after opening…
Gill (snaxandthecity) says
Oh for smell-a-vision! Can you believe that in England, they don’t even make wholewheat English muffins? In fact I hardly ever see them in shops full stop! I used to eat them all the time as a kid, slathered in honey….yum!
Heidi - apples under my bed says
mmmm delicious! You really do create epic breakfasts!
So many layers of goodness..each bite would be packed with so much flavor!
Carolyn @ one lazy bride says
The muffins – and toppings! – look incredible.
Had a giggle at the muffin joke. I’m from Canada, currently living in London, and I can’t believe their definition of “cold weather.” But they do make good muffins! 😉
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
I love how you manage to make something as simple as English muffins into a decadent meal!
Those look like the softest English muffins I have ever seen.
Oh my heavens, that’s hilarious about you having to put it back in the oven! And you know what else is funny? It’s actually 27 degrees here in Canberra too… but I’m talking celsius 😛
I had an english muffin for breakfast too! Mmmm… so delicious
that looks delicious!
