Everyone looks forward to breakfast at our Ann Arbor Ypsilanti area bed and breakfast, when the aroma of coffee and breakfast rises from the kitchen. Guests remember their experience when they use the recipes in "The Best of Breakfast" cook book to delight their family and friends at home. I have included some guest favorites here for you.
This recipe is the one everyone talks about and is our signature dish. You can make it ahead of time and just reheat it in your dish in the microwave for a quick breakfast. Enjoy!
