Yum, Portuguese Breakfast Sandwiches

SAVE10 Portuguese

Dear Cooking Fans and Foodies,

Daylight Savings is happening Sunday, March 12 and yes that means we lose an hour of sleep. On the bright side it also means spring is on its way. To help you prepare for your unavoidable sleepy mornings we suggest you make a delicious Portuguese breakfast sandwich using the finest chourico patties from Amaral’s! It’s simple and delicious. First fry the chourico on both sides and remove 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 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. Either way your Portuguese breakfast sandwich will make your mornings much better! Don’t forget use Coupon Code SAVE10 and save 10% off your entire order! This code is valid March 4-10, 2017.

Who’s Thirsty for New England Beverages?

Hi Cooking Fans and Foodies,

There are so many reasons to love New England and one of those reasons is coffee milk! Go outside of New England and ask for a glass of coffee milk and we’d be surprised to hear they have it or know what it is! It’s presumed origin is Rhode Island, the Ocean State. Brands such as Coffee Time, Eclipse, and Autocrat have become household staples in New England. Autocrat has the sweetest coffee flavor. Great for those who load up their morning coffee with sugar and cream.  The Eclipse brand strikes a balance between sweetness and a strong coffee flavor. This one falls in the middle on the flavor scale.  Coffee Time has the most intense coffee flavor of the three. If you love your coffee strong and black, perhaps this is the coffee syrup for you.
