Can you imagine Thomas’® Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins playing the role of toast in French toast? Ooh, all those spices used in the milk or eggnog soak like cinnamon, cardamom, etc. would get caught up in the nooks and crannies texture of Thomas’® English Muffins ~ making for one heck of a tasty and satisfying spin on French toast.

My friends, I speak not from imagination but from experience!

Thomas’® English Muffins have been making the rounds through my meals since my early college years. Back then, I used to enjoy Thomas’® English Muffins lightly toasted so they were deliciously crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I loved their texture so much, I wouldn’t even entertain the thought of smearing them with butter.

But breakfast wasn’t the only meal I enjoyed them at. There were some days when I would top them with a smidge of whipped cream and strawberry jam and enjoy them as dessert.

These days, my daughter and I love to enjoy Thomas’® English Muffins lightly toasted with a smidge of cream cheese and fresh fruit for breakfast or a snack. During the holiday season, we throw in some candied cherries for a bit of festivity! Every now and then, I make English muffin French toast with Thomas’® Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins.

Thomas’® English Muffins are also delicious with some soup or stew too – their texture makes them perfect to sop up leftover soup and stew at the bottom of a bowl.

A few weekends ago, I was feeling a bit tired after an early morning trip to Walmart. As I stood in my kitchen wishing I had a clone to make me a batch of English muffin French toasts, surprisingly, an idea popped into my head.

So, instead of standing over a stove and flipping over these English Muffin French Toasts, I did the following steps I usually do to make French toast:

This English Muffin French Toast Bake is so easy to make. The cranberries are completely optional – I added them in to make this a festive holiday breakfast dish.

We almost always keep at least one pack of Thomas' English Muffins in our kitchen. Right now, we are all in on the pumpkin ones! Turning those muffins into a french toast bake is downright genius, Shashi. This is going to have to happen during the holidays!

This is such a fun idea for an easy holiday breakfast. Great Christmas flavors with the eggnog too. How does it go with mimosas?
