When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last,
“what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
— A.A. Milne
Whether the entree is sweet or savory, you can count on an exciting breakfast experience at Michigan B&Bs. After all, when the second “B” in your name stands for Breakfast, it better be extra special.
Changing the taste from sweet to savory, The House on the Hill B&B, “up north” in Ellsworth, shares its recipe for a taste-tempting Spinach Artichoke Souffle, a guest favorite pictured below. Don’t let the word “souffle” throw you: you can make it!
You can print out the recipe by clicking on the luscious-looking image on the left. Like all the dishes featured here, the recipes are among nearly 400 posted online under B&B Recipe Favorites. Selections range beyond breakfast entrees to include baked breads, muffins, biscuits and scones, appetizers and side dishes, lunch and dinner specialties and, of course, “Sweet Endings” — the desserts innkeepers like to serve their guests as bedtime treats or as consolation on a rainy afternoon.
For those who prefer their recipes bound in a printed cookbook or those looking for that perfect gift for a budding chef, many of our innkeepers’ favorite recipes are featured in the Michigan B&B Cookbook, available to order online.
