Hey friends and foodies!

We hope the weather where you are is starting to take a turn for the better and you’re enjoying some early spring sunshine and flowers. Here in New England, we’re looking forward to backyard grilling and days on the beach while trying to enjoy all the beautiful things that spring brings us. We’re feeling a bit nostalgic today and focusing on some of our classics – you know, the foods that are so yummy that it doesn’t matter what time of the year it is or what the weather is outside!

Here are some of our must-have pantry and food staples:

Hoo-Mee Cho Mein is the perfect item to keep in your cabinet for when dinner needs to be fast, simple, and yummy. You can serve up a steaming bowl of Chow Mein with crunchy noodles or pile it all into a sandwich – either way, it’s delicious!

If you’re planning on sticking close to home and your own grill, now is the perfect time to load the freezer with a variety of meat so you can have your choice of Kayem Franks or some traditional Portuguese meats like linguica. Remember when your grandmother used to keep bread in the freezer? Grab hot dog buns while you’re at it and toss them in there!

And don’t forget the snacks – indulge your sweet tooth. We carry Drake’s full line of Devil Dogs, brownies, coffee cake, and Funny Bones and Peggy Lawton treats!

Enjoy the weather and get yourself a Peggy Lawton brownie – you deserve it!

Spring Seasonal Favorites from Amaral’s Bakery

CODE_ SPRING

Hey friends and foodies,

We’re in the ‘Fool’s Spring’ portion of the winter here in New England. We’ve had a couple of days where temps have climbed to a balmy almost-50 and it’s got us thinking about some of our favorite baked goods that come with the transition into spring and the Easter season.

One of my favorite things to do is create a New England-themed breakfast. Here’s how you can make a delicious Portuguese breakfast sandwich using the finest chourico patties from Gaspar’s! It’s easy and delicious – even for the pickiest little eaters in the house. First, fry the chourico on both sides and remove it from heat. Then lower the heat and fry up an egg to your liking using salt and pepper for taste. While that is cooking pop an Amaral’s Bolos Levedos Portuguese Muffin in the toaster. If you’d like to add cheese to your egg. Once the muffin is heated build your breakfast sandwich with the chourico patty and egg! Some people like dipping it in hot sauce or ketchup.

Bolos Levedos Portuguese Muffins 14 oz.

Toast them up or eat them straight out of the bag; you’ll love them either way!  As stated above, Bolos Levedos are great for breakfast sandwiches!

 

 

 

 

They’re Back!

For over fifty years Amaral’s Bakery has baked Portuguese favorites for all of New England. Easter is just under a month away so you may want to start thinking about your order now!

mini-easter-sweetbreadPortuguese Mini Easter Sweetbreads come in a package of 6. Each miniature loaf comes with one hard-boiled egg. Our local Portuguese residents also refer to this as “folar” and request it every spring!

 

easter sweetbreadPortuguese Easter Sweetbread with 2 Eggs from Amaral’s Bakery is a hometown favorite for Easter. The hard-boiled eggs are cooked into the bread and are said to symbolize rebirth.

 

 

Our full selection of Amaral’s Bakery includes Portuguese Sweetbread rolls, Bolos Levedos Portuguese Muffins, Portuguese Tea Biscuits, and traditional sweetbreads can be found here.
