The Innkeeper’s mother was a master at dragging her kids out of bed with only the scent of an incredible breakfast! Everyone knows that kids like grilled cheese… but this kitchen maestro devised a way to work all these great flavors into a perfect breakfast dish to help the kids get ready for a busy day. The recipe for her Grilled Cheese Omelet is one that we would like to share. We hope your family will enjoy it as much as ours has over the years!
Not to be outdone, our grandma believed in making delicous breakfasts that were both good for you, and simple to make (thanks to the sheer amount of mouths she fed when extended family came during the holidays). Her Overnight Egg and Cheese Souffle both tasted of home, and the fact that it could be made ahead of time really made things easy in the mornings!
Perfect as a side for any hearty breakfast, our Cheddar Biscuits both pack a flavor-punch, and help fill you up. This surprisingly-easy recipe will keep you happy when you make them, and your family happy when they eat them!
