Davidson’s Safest Choice® is thrilled to be back at IFBC for their third year in a row! This year we will be serving up Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles during Saturday evening’s Culinary Fair.

Emily of the Sugar Plum Blog offers this great recipe using Safest Choice™ eggs. “There are so many different recipes out there for truffles, I knew there had to be some recipes for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles. And there are. But I didn't make any of them; I made my own,” says Emily. You’ll love her recipe for safe truffles using raw chocolate chip cookie dough!

Why use Safest Choice™ Eggs in this recipe? If your mom ever said to you “don’t lick the spoon” when you’re making chocolate chip cookie dough, let her know this recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough truffles is safe from Salmonella!

Davidson's Safest Choice Eggs are pasteurized, so they taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! The Safest Choice™ eggs are pasteurized in an all-natural, gentle water bath to eliminates the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. Now you can safely enjoy your favorite styles and recipes such as HollandaiseCaesar salad dressing and other sauces—and sunny side up, poached or soft scrambled eggs.

Taste Safest Choice and you’ll discover that our pasteurized eggs look, cook, and taste like other eggs. In fact, Safest Choice™ Pasteurized Eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the nation’s largest organization of professional chefs, the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

Our History

From our family to yours.

In 1933, George Bay opened a bakery in Chicago’s Loop selling English muffins with a recipe his English grandmother brought to the U.S. in the 1800’s.  Sold by the dozen in brown paper bags, the muffins were hand-delivered to restaurants, hotels and private clubs.  In 1938, Bays was one of the first companies to package muffins in a box with a cellophane window.  In the early 70’s, Bays products were selected to introduce the Egg McMuffin breakfast sandwich.  Bays remains a family business and adheres to the original recipe.  James Bay Jr. and George Bay are the third generation of the Bay family and actively run the business today.

Our Muffins

What Makes Bays Different ... and Better?

Have you ever wondered why Bays English Muffins are sold in the refrigerated dairy case and not in the bread aisle along with most other English muffins?

We follow an original family recipe and baking process that have been passed down through generations for a homemade goodness and quality you can truly taste. We uphold our high standards of excellence by using only the finest, authentic ingredients: pure cane sugar, Minnesota spring wheat flour and whole milk, real Wisconsin AA butter, and potato flour. This results in a muffin that toasts up golden brown, with a light, crispy texture.

All of our muffins are made to order, and leave the factory within 24 hours of baking to be shipped across the country in refrigerated trucks. By making our muffins available in the refrigerated section, we are able to ensure they arrive at your home fresh and full of flavor.

Bays English Muffins are available in four varieties:  Original, Sourdough, Honey Wheat & Multi-Grain.

All the Ways To Bays

So Many Uses!

Everyone has their favorite “WAYS” to enjoy the delicious taste of BAYS 
English Muffins. BAYS signature taste has been enjoyed thousands of different ways over the years.  From classic breakfast and brunch dishes to melts, pizzas, paninis and “smashes,”  we’re excited to share our ideas with you.

Visit us at like us on Facebook at announcements and a complete library of recipes and serving ideas.  We’d love to stay in touch, so sign up for our email newsletters and participate in our weekly Toast to Trivia food quiz.

We are proud to be a Grand Sponsor for this year’s International Food Bloggers Conference in Seattle.  Stop by, say hello and enjoy some Bays English Muffins at the Culinary Fair/Expo on Saturday, September 19 and come for our sponsored breakfast/education session on Sunday, September 20.
