Worth Every Calorie: Award-Winning B&B Breakfasts



Get a hot cup of coffee and drool along with us at these Sweet 16 amazing breakfasts. Bed & Breakfast owners and chefs share the recipes that earned them a place as finalists in the annual contest that celebrates the second "B" in B&B.

These recipes feature everything from sweet potatoes to St. Germain elderflower liqueur. We say "yes, please" to salted caramel, rosemary-infused syrup, farm-fresh blueberries, piles of whipped cream and, of course, to bacon -- lots and lots of thick, sliced bacon.

The press release noted "the Sweet 16 finalists were chosen based on recipe creativity, uniqueness and appeal by guest judges including Anne Banas,; Genevieve Shaw Brown, ABC News; Adrien Glover, Travel + Leisure; and Larry Olmsted, Great American Bites columnist." The runners-up and winner were chosen by fans on Facebook.

Every one of these mouth-watering breakfasts looks worth waking up early to make; and they would be even better to wake up to, so we've included links to the recipes and to information on the inns that feature them in their morning meals.
