National English Muffin Day - The "Toaster Crumpet"
Date When Celebrated : This holiday event is always held on April 23
English muffins are believed to have been created in the 10th or 11th century in Wales, England. They were first called a "Toaster Crumpet". Samuel Bath Thomas, a British immigrant to the United States, is credited with introducing the English muffin to the United Sates in 1894. Always toasted, English muffins were originally served in the finest restaurants and hotels. It didn't take long for this tasty treat to make it's way to the average American breakfast table.
The versatile English muffin was first served as part of the breakfast meal, or as a quick morning bite to eat, before heading out for a busy day. It's versatility became quickly apparent, and nowadays is consumed for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. For breakfast, toasted English muffins are slathered with butter, which soaks into all of the nooks and crannies. We all have our own homemade version of the Egg McMuffin. Ours is called the "Egg McDaddy". For lunch, you can load it up with your favorite meats, cheese and condiment. Kids love peanut butter and jelly on English muffins. For dinner time, it acts as the side bread, or you can pile almost anything on top of it. Try heaping some Mac and Cheese on an English muffin... yum! English muffins make great snacks, too. Use them as a base for mini pizzas.
This is such an enjoyable and tasty holiday. It's easy to participate, too. Just pop an English Muffin in the toaster or toaster oven. Then, top it off with whatever your prefer!
We hope you thoroughly enjoy National Toaster Crumpet Day, errr National English Muffin Day !!
