Stone & Skillet was founded in 2013 in Boston, MA by Kyle & Dan who had a dream of a better English muffin. With many years in the food industry, they noticed a serious lack of quality English muffins and set out to make one that stood out. Drawing inspiration from their restaurant background, they spent months testing recipes in their apartment. Finally, after many bags of flour, they had an English muffin they were proud to show the world. The Original Stone & Skillet English Muffin.
Using their connections in restaurants, they started selling their muffins to chef friends in Boston who put the muffin on their menus. The response was amazing! People went crazy, and were soon asking where they could buy them.
They were still making the muffins out of their apartment and knew they needed a proper bakery to accommodate the demand. While searching for a new bakery, they spent 3 months working overnight at friends' restaurants and delivering muffins by public transportation during the day.
As time went on, the team grew, the bakery and production expanded and Kyle & Dan established Stone & Skillet as a national brand in major retail stores.
The Best Fancy English Muffins: Stone & Skillet
“Call these your special occasion English muffins. We had two of this style of muffin—heartier, denser, "artisanal"—in the taste test, but Stone & Skillet far outshone the competitor. They are much thicker than what you may be used to if you're a Thomas's loyalist (we had several in our midst), but they still have that signature English muffin chew and toast up beautifully crunchy when split. The flavor is buttery with a slight tang. Like most English muffins, these are not made to be eaten straight out of the package. Instead, they come just slightly doughy, so that when you toast them, the exposed sides turn brown and crusty while the interior stays moist. Go for this brand for burgers, Bennys, and bougie weekend brunches.”
