Friday Favorite: Calise Bakery introduces sweet breakfast bread

Calise Bakery has launched its first-ever breakfast bread and it’s here to make the most important meal of the day even sweeter!

The brand, founded in 1908 by the Calise family, creates high-quality, authentic Italian sandwich rolls and dinner bread, but decided to give breakfast bread a shot — and we have a winner! This isn’t to say their other offerings aren’t savoring enough for our taste buds, but the new Brioche Style Cinnamon Chip Texas Toast from Calise Bakery takes the cake.

According to the press release, the bakery’s first breakfast product “provides a fresh, new kind of breakfast with a deliciously sweet brioche taste made from premium quality ingredients,” a claim that is easy to believe and proved by the great taste.

Breakfast is already the most important meal of the day, but now it’s even better with the taste of cinnamon! If you’re like me, breakfast is the meal that needs the most sweetness, after all, it’s what you’ll be waking up to. And we all need a positive (and delicious) start to our day, especially during these times.

Along with the tasty package of bread Calise Bakery sent our way, they also shared recipes that we’re passing along to you! Here are some fun recipes and facts about Calise Bakery Brioche Style Cinnamon Chip Texas Toast.
