Spring Seasonal Favorites from Amaral’s Bakery


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.

Celebrate Two of Our Favorite Tastes of New England

Hey friends and foodies!


Here in the Northeast, we’re closing out another summer month with a stretch of typical New England weather – it’s hot, it’s muggy, it’s almost August! We’re taking a bit of time (indoors, in the AC) to celebrate two of our favorite classic brands this week that can bring a taste of New England to anywhere in the country.

bar-harbor-new-england-clam-chowder-15-oz-8Whether you’re a fan of classic clam chowder, corn chowder, lobster bisque, or even clam juice, we carry a full line of Bar Harbor products for those who want an authentic, coastal Maine lunch, dinner, or starter. Bar Harbor creates its products in small batches as people on the Maine coast have for generations. It’s as close to fresh off the docks of Maine as you can get without being there.


peggy-lawton-variety-pack-12-2-oz-16If you’re finding yourself seafood-ed out, and you’re craving something sweet, we can help there as well! Take the time to refill those snack drawers with Peggy Lawton brownies and cookies. We have variety packs for someone who wants a little bit of everything or you can get a case of Oatmeal, Butter Crunch, or Shortbread cookies if you have a favorite and never want to run out. The variety pack combines the chocolaty goodness of Fudge Brownies and the Chunk Chocolate Cookies with the sweet tastes of Peggy’s Choco-Chip, Oatmeal, and Butter Crunch Cookies!

Stay cool!
