Savory Stuffed French Toast with Lemon Thyme Applesauce, Bristol House Bed & Breakfast - Bristol, RI

"Our savory French toast recipe was created out of our love for grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. We thought, why not serve a version of this simple sandwich for breakfast. And, as an alternative to sweet syrup, what goes better with ham than applesauce! We love making savory fruit compotes, so we developed the applesauce to accompany the sharp flavors in the French toast custard. We hope you enjoyed our recipe as much as our guests do!"

Egg Roulade, Biltmore Village Inn - Asheville, NC

"Our Egg Roulade dish was inspired by our local history! Asheville is home to Biltmore Estate, which is the largest privately owned home in the United States. Its Chateau-style architecture inspired us to create a French dish that would visually impress our guests. Much like George Vanderbilt or Samuel Reed would do at their breakfast table while entertaining guests over 100 years ago. We serve the Egg Roulade every Sunday, while changing its ingredients seasonally and often. Guests are always asking how we rolled such fluffy eggs and are surprised when we explain how easy it really is! It’s simply an all around crowd pleaser and easy to dress up with seasonal veggies from our garden."

Breakfast Tacos, Tucker House Inn - Friday Harbor, WA

"Our guests love Mexican-inspired breakfasts so Chef Jessica includes breakfast tacos, burritos or tostadas in the entrée rotation. These Breakfast Tacos showcase the bounty of the summer harvest. Many of the ingredients including the carrots, greens, radish and cilantro were picked from our chef’s garden at the Inn. The shredded Cornish Game Hen comes from Mad Hatcher Poultry, a local producer in Ephrata Washington. The tacos are topped with a farm-fresh fried egg and queso fresco and served with a side of Mexican Rice."

Cheesy Grits And Bacon Pierogies With Sorghum-Onion Jam, Old Caledonian Bed & Breakfast - Caledonia, MO

"We wanted to create a dish that was a twist on a popular favorite. Pierogies are currently having a well deserved moment of culinary trendiness. They're usually filled with mashed potatoes, so we thought if dough can be filled with potatoes, why not grits? Jon, owner and breakfast chef at the Old Caledonian, likes cheesy grits better than mashed potatoes, anyway! Add to that the local Missouri appeal of sorghum and the fact that everybody loves bacon, and we think we have a winning dish! Enjoy!"

Breakfast Rockefeller Royale, Stonehurst Place - Atlanta, GA

"Breakfast Rockefeller Royale is a delicious pastry partially inspired by Antoine’s famous Oysters Rockefeller. In each bite, you’ll taste fresh spinach, ricotta cheese, bacon, eggs, onions, and thyme. Roasted golden potatoes are often served on the side to complement the medley of flavors. This tasty creation is inspired by our innkeeper and in-house culinary artist Grace Cardona's personal influences. Her ties to New Orleans and her treasured experiences cooking with her mother have fueled her love of food and passion for cooking. We hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!"

Savory Truffle Steak & Eggs With Shallot Tarragon Bearnaise, Open Gates Bed & Breakfast - Darien, GA

"The Savory Truffle steak and eggs has just recently become a guest and local favorite. Our local Wednesday morning breakfast club love this dish! It is a challenge to create new dishes for them but I’m lucky they give me the freedom to make whatever I like. They love a twist on this classic while adding a couple more layers of flavor. This dish is scrumptulescent! All of the flavors just melt together so well. If you’re looking for savory this is it! See you soon!"

Barbecue Benedict, Pettigru Place Bed And Breakfast - Greenville, SC

"The Barbeque Benedict came about after a vacation in Georgia while visiting my father. The restaurant was serving pulled pork with a tomato based BBQ sauce over eggs. We liked the idea and played around with it until we found the right balance of spicy and sweet sauce. All of us at Pettigru Place have strong opinions about food! The cold and crunchy slaw, smooth hollandaise sauce, and flavorful juicy pulled pork are a great combination. The golden Carolina sauce really makes this dish."

Baked Grits Souffle With Pancetta, Eggs And Tomatoes, Charred Oaks Inn - Versailles, KY

"The recipe I submitted was a new one I have been working on for a little while. At Charred Oaks Inn a freshly made-to-order breakfast is included with your stay. One of our sides was a helping of creamy grits made with Irish butter and a dollop of fresh heavy cream. It is very popular so I thought I might develop an entree using grits, and after a little trial and error our entree was created: a baked grits souffle topped with Pancetta, seasoned diced tomatoes, a poached egg and freshly chopped herbs. We have one rule at Charred Oaks Inn, and that is the moment you step through our door, you become family. Cooking breakfast is just one of the many ways we show our guests how much they are loved and appreciated."
