Recipe Contest

March 26, 2015 by braytonbb

So, as many of you know, we entered the Bedandbreakfast.com breakfast recipe contest for the second year in a row. Both years we made it to the top 16 out of the hundreds of people that entered. Once it gets down to the top 16, you are then paired up with another recipe and Facebook fans vote on whose recipe they would like to see go on to the next round (very similar to the March Madness Brackets).  Both years, this is as far as we have made it. Last year was the best “sweet” original breakfast recipe. This year, we had to use “regional” ingredients. I

breakfast grilled cheeseThis year, our breakfast grilled cheese didn’t have as nice of a picture, but I thought the recipe is one that I will not quit making. It is not real friendly to make for a full house just because its a little putzy, but for a few people its perfect. I had many requests to make this when people come back to visit, so do not be afraid to ask me to make it ahead of time. I just have to make sure I have all the specialty ingredients on hand. I don’t think you will be disappointed. It’s actually one of my favorites.

With that being said, no new recipes this week but I have included the links to both last years entry and this years.

 

Breakfast Grilled Cheese

April 10, 2014 by braytonbb

This breakfast grilled cheese is probably one of my new favorite recipes. It has a wonderful mix of sweet and savory with just the right amount of heat. This recipe was featured on channel 5 roadtrip segment a couple of weeks ago and was favored well, so we wanted to share our recipe with you. I considered entering this in the bedandbreakfast.com contest a month ago, but I figured it was not sweet enough. I may have to reconsider this one for next year.

I use very specific ingredients in this sandwich for a few of the items. You can tweak anyway you like, but I have found that using these key ingredients makes a big difference.

Festival Foods bakery cinnamon bread-unsliced, Butcher Block Raspberry pepper or Raspberry Japlepeno jam,( there are two companies that make this jam that Butcher Block sells. I forget the name, but they are both incredible, Hennings Mango Fire Cheddar Cheese sold at Butcher Block as well. If you have never been in Butcher Block, you should really check it out. A lot of specialty items only found in Wisconsin and really nice owners too!

Two slices cinnamon bread, 2 Large eggs, 2 TB  Raspberry Pepper Jam, 2 slices maple bacon (fried), and 2 slices mango chipotle cheddar cheese and butter.

Scramble eggs and pour into a frying pan. Cook without scrambling, but flip to keep the eggs together. Set aside.

Butter both slices of cinnamon bread on one side. Lay one slice, buttered side down, in frying pan. Spread one TB of raspberry pepper jam on bread. Layer with eggs, bacon, and cheese. Slather the other 1 TB of raspberry pepper jam on opposite side of buttered bread. Lay the jam side down on the egg, bacon and cheese with butter side up. Flip to cook other side until desired doneness. About one minutes. Cut in half and serve with fruit.
