Let's take a walk down memory lane. When you were young did your mom make you cinnamon sugar toast? Ya know, a slice of white bread toasted, buttered, and sprinkled with a mix of cinnamon sugar? As a kid, I LOVED it. Heck, to this day I'm still a fan. So when I discovered Jenny Lee Swirl Bread, I just couldn't get enough. It's like the adult-friendly version of cinnamon sugar toast. And the best part? It's non-GMO verified and locally-made. Keepin' it healthy and supporting a local Pittsburgh business... #AdultingSoHard.
So let me tell you more about this magical bag of goodness. I'm a big fan of the tried-and-true Classic Cinnamon just lightly toasted and buttered, BUT I'm fully obligated to mention this bread makes some kick-ass french toast too. I personally went super basic and used almond milk, egg, and cinnamon, but Jenny Lee has a fancier recipe on their site if you're really feeling yourself. Homemade, DIY brunch anyone?
Once you've tried out the Classic Cinnamon, you should probably make your way through the other 5 flavors. What's up Cinnamon Raisin, Cinnamon Apple, Cinnamon Cranberry, Cinnamon Pumpkin Walnut, and Cinnamon Chocolate Chip. Since you all know I'm on a HUGE fall kick (hence the recent Fall Bucket List and Soergel's Fall Festival blogs), I've been loving on the Pumpkin Walnut extra hard.
Aside from the sweet breads, Jenny Lee also has a whole line of Savory Breads. Being the carb connoisseur that I am, I'll probably dive into those sometime this winter. If you haven't already read it in a previous post, I HATE WINTER. So my diet pretty much solely consists of warm and comforting food December-March. I'm coming for you California Tomato Basil! How good does that sound? With a hot cup of tomato soup? Sign. me. up.
You can snag yourself some Jenny Lee treats from local grocery stores like SHOP n' SAVE, Giant Eagle, and a wholeeeee lot of other retailers across the region. Fun Fact: Jenny Lee Swirl Bread has Pittsburgh roots that date back to the mid-1800s. Now that's local. As always, I'm proud to eat local and shop local whenever I can. Try some Jenny Lee bread, my friends. You won't regret it. I promise.
