What's for Breakfast: Buttered Muffin

By Ed Bruske
aka The Slow Cook

Chartwells at its menu website called for "fresh-baked peach muffin square" for breakfast. Instead what we saw at my daughter's school was a "buttered" English muffin, meaning a "butter alternate" presumably made from vegetable oil and flavored to taste like butter.
The kids seemed to like it well enough.

Next to it is a pool of vanilla yogurt, canned mixed fruit, apple juice and fat-free milk.

What's your vote? Good enough?


  1. I think it's strange that Chartwells can substitute for something on the menu --does anyone record how often or how far from the original item it is?

    Also, I love the term "fresh-baked". It could have been frozen for a year, but hey, it was baked this morning :-)

  2. Where is the fresh fruit? How about pears, a variety of apples, a banana, more cut up oranges, plums, grapes?

    It would be so easy to replace the canned variety.
