Bed and Breakfast Notes

A few of the recipe notes I kept from my trip to a northern B&B last November as mentioned in an earlier post. I had alot of fun coming up with all kinds of recipes for this couple new to the B&B scene to try out.

Baked Eggs in Maple Toast Cups
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
2 Tbsp Butter
8 slices of white bread (crusts removed)
8 eggs
Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees F

Combine the butter and syrup in a saucepan, heat gently until the butter melts.
Press out the bread using a rolling pin then brush each slice with the syrup mixture and press into down into greased muffin tins.
(it is very important you grease the tins!)
Break an egg into each cup, season and bake for 15 minutes.

Pancake Souffle
3 Eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
Fresh fruit (optional)
Ice cream (optional)
fruit coulis (optional)

Pre-Heat oven to 350degrees F
Whisk together the eggs, flour and milk.
Pour into ungreased ramekins and bake on middle rack of oven for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and crispy.
Top with fresh fruit, ice cream or coulis.

In 10" ovenproof fry pan, warm olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until tender. Add potatoes, garlic and basil; sauté stirring occasionally, 2 minutes more.
