These are those breakfast and brunch recipes (casseroles, coffee cakes, and so on) which you might make the night before for a breakfast without a lot of hassle in the morning. The morning after a big holiday dinner, for instance.
I was recently sent a very sweet "We miss you" card from friends that I appreciated very much. The well-wishings were on a card with a lovely country fireside photo of Shumway Mansion’s "Yummy Eggs" and included the quote: "Love and eggs are best when fresh." (A Russian proverb.) :) "One of the Northwest’s most outstanding ‘inner city’ bed and breakfasts is the award winning Shumway Mansion. Entirely furnished in period antiques, the 23 room home was built in 1909, winning the 1986 award from the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation. Overlooking Juanita Bay and only minutes from nature trails and jogging paths, the Shumway’s breakfasts are as legendary as the special dinners and wedding receptions set in the beautiful rose garden." Included on the back of the card was this recipe. Editor's Note: We received an update on the Shumway Mansion. "My family closed the Shumway Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn and Wedding Reception Center a couple of years ago and we are now converting Shumway Mansion into an Adult Family Home in Kirkland, Washington. Our new website is shumwaymansion.net We're looking forward to using many of my old B&B recipes for our new residents.
We love reuben sandwiches (you can see how we make them from the recipe I posted for "Reubens Our Way"), but you know – you can make them for breakfast, too! Based on a recipe, tweaked to our own liking, from Taste of Home. Although I titled this for breakfast, it's good any time of day. :)
Like a Dutch baby or german pancake baked in the oven in an iron skillet. Topped with fruit and powdered sugar or brown sugar. I found this recipe in the newspaper 25 years ago and make it often, my family loves it. I put it under the broiler to brown on top, this is the best part.
This recipe is based on one I originally got from from the Wolf House Bed and Breakfast on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. It is absolutely delicious!! Wendy Burgess at Wolf House says: "Prepare the batter the night before for a delectable, fresh, and warm coffee cake for breakfast. This is perfect for a sweet wake-up call to overnight guests or anytime you want to treat yourself after sleeping in!" Total time listed does not include chilling overnight.
I found this recipe in a holiday magazine a couple of years ago and it's become a family favorite ever since. It's sort of like a fancy bread pudding, yet not quite, so I hesitate to really term it a bread pudding because in this case the croissants don't dissolve into the other ingredients like a normal bread pudding would, so the texture is much different. The orange flavor gives it a wonderful taste too.
Bob Evan's restaurants makes this on their breakfast menu (they call it country Biscuit Breakfast), but I took one look at it, and said to my husband they should call it "Breakfast Slop" instead. Despite the not too encouraging name, this is really good, and one of the better things you can have for breakfast at Evans. You'll like this a lot if you are a fan of biscuits and gravy, because this basically is the magnum opus of that sort of thing. At Evans they serve this with home fries (hash browns) and that or something like grits would be just great. Enjoy!
My family and friends just love this recipe! It's easy, delicious, and you make it the night before so there is no work in the morning. Just pop it in the oven and by the time the table is set and coffee is on, it's ready! I believe this recipe came from the Best of Bridge cookbook. Great served with fresh fruit or yogurt. Can also be cooked in casserole dish on the barbeque so you don't heat up your house on a hot day!
I'm an early riser (most days) so I love to wake everyone with yummy smells coming from the kitchen. This is no exception. My DS and DBF like this with blueberries, DD#3 and I prefer cherries. Combinations are endless, think I will try a peach/blueberry combo or strawberries next! Prep time does not include overnite chilling.
I remember helping my Mom making these when I was little. I have always liked the combination of bologna and eggs. This is a simple little breakfast that low carbers can appreciate too. For some variety, cheese can be sprinkled over the top or the eggs can be whisked with onions, peppers, etc. before filling the cups.
I have no idea why this is called California Breakfast Bread or where it comes from. I found this recipe typed, by a real typewriter, on a sheet of note paper. Goes to show that it has been around for awhile. It is scrumptious.
This wonderful recipe is from The Cheese Lover's Cookbook and Guide by Paula Lambert, adapted slightly cause I want MORE of everything. These scones also freeze beautifully (fully-baked). I individually wrap in double-foil and then breakfast is ready for me when I don't have time to make it.
Another lovely cardamom recipe, this one is adapted from the fantastic 'The Great Scandinavian Baking Book' by Beatrice Ojakangas. You can buy cardamom already ground but I prefer grinding it myself in a mortar and pestle, it's much tastier.
My mother used to make this delicious breakfast every Christmas morning (we called it "Egg Thing" as kids), but it would also be appropriate for Easter or other occasions. You can add your own touches to make it your own, but here is the basic recipe:
