Rise and Dine! I don’t know about you, but breakfasts are my favorite meals. Mention brunch and I am all about it. #BrunchHadMeLike….The blueberry pancakes or quiche or eggs benedict or even a fancy mimosa – all things that make me go mmmmmmm…
There are a few hot spots in Cleveland for brunch – the places that are packed from the moment they open until their closing. Places like Fire Food and Drink or Lucky’s Cafe. THE best. Or a bagel from Bialys (voted in the TOP 10 of best bagels in America from USA Today)
I got my hands on a cookbook that I had good feelings about. America’s Best Breakfasts. Although not all states are included in this breakfast book, the authors found their faves from the west coast all the way to my hometown of Cleveland! #ThisIsCLE. Recipes that are cult classics from the areas of the country that the authors traveled include caramelized grapefruit with basil sugar, lobster scrambled eggs, Croque Monsier, fruit crepes with whipped cream and more! I decided to test out one that caught my eye. The corn and Andouille skillet fritters.
These fritters were just the landing spot of where the poached eggs landed. Topped with a homemade hollandaise sauce, this was an updaded style of eggs benedict.
Super delish and super filling – but really worth the calories. Do I have you drooling yet? Looks like you might need to check out this book. It’s a keeper. There are about a dozen more recipes I am dying to try out asap – because BRUNCH is always a good idea!
What is your favorite breakfast recipe or local place to grab a fab brunch?
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review but all opinions are my own.
