“While we will have one winning chef at the end of Thomas’ Hometown Breakfast Battle, the real winners here are the consumers who will have access to 135 breakfast recipes from some of our country’s most beloved chefs,” said Jon Silvon, Senior Category Director, Breakfast Portfolio, Thomas’ Breads. “After 135 years, consumers will be offered 135 new ways to eat Thomas’ iconic English Muffins and Bagels, as these cooking pros showcase how easy and fun it is to add some local flair and approachability to your morning menu, using our products as the main ingredient.”
Thomas’ Breads dates back to 1880 when Samuel Bath Thomas created his original English Muffin in New York City using a secret process that included griddle baking to create a muffin filled with Nooks and Crannies goodness. The company later added bagels to its breakfast offerings. Today, the Thomas’ English Muffin is the #1 selling English Muffin and a favorite breakfast product in America.
