English Muffin Loaves- A Family Recipe

I have many family recipes that I love to make. Many have been passed down from generations back, and some have only been passed from a generation ago. This is one of the recipes from my ex-MIL that I love to make and cherish having in our home. I know, I know, a recipe from an EX-mil? Yes, family is family. That never changes for me.

This is a great recipe. It is simple to make, and tastes divine! It’s great either toasted or not! Sturdy enough to top off with some eggs, bacon, veggies, or simply some butter.


Give it a try and tell me what you think!
