Best Breakfast on the Beach …Recipes by Maureen

“The reaction to my cookbook has been overwhelming!!! Thank you, again, dear guests for your encouragement and support. There was an ingredient missing in the ‘Blueberry Pancake’ recipe… specifically 2 cups of blueberries… duh! Overall I was pleased with the end product… and thinking about another cook book that would be about appetizers, salads, and desserts.
Here is a recipe i would like to share with you that is not in the cookbook but would be a great addition:

Swiss Apple Quiche
2 frozen pie shells
3 medium tart green apples, peeled and finely chopped
8 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp curry
1 Tbsp butter
4 cups grated Gruyere cheese
1 cup whipping cream
4 eggs, slightly beaten
½ cup dry Vermouth or dry white wine
¼ tsp pepper

1. Bake the pie shells on a baking sheet lined with foil at 350 until shells are lightly browned. Let cool.
2. Preheat oven to 375. Combine apples, green onions, nutmeg, and curry. Sautée in butter for 3-5 minutes, or until just soft. Cool. Spoon into cooled pie shells and top with grated cheese.
3. Combine cream, eggs, Vermouth and pepper. Pour slowly with a glass measuring cup, over the cheese. Bake quiche on middle rack for 35-45 minutes, or until firm and golden. Watch that the pastry doesn’t get too brown. Cover if necessary. Remove from oven and cool on a rack for 15 minutes.
Each quiche serves 8

Best Breakfast on the Beach – by Maureen H

At last, the cookbook is here!! All the recipes for breakfast that I have done for the last five years at On the Beach. I wrote this cookbook in recognition of the many guests who have said: “If you had a cookbook, I would buy it!” My forty years of cooking in cafes on the west coast as well as the Northwest have gone into the making of this. It is not just recipes, but allowing your own renditions of the basic ingredients to make it your own, which is the way they were developed. CABBI (California Association of Boutique & Breakfast Inns) posted my Bacon and Leek Quiche recipe and put it succinctly when they said it is not just about the Inn, but “beloved for its breakfast” If you have stayed at On the Beach, Bed and Breakfast you know that we cook from scratch, morning to evening, and it is not the kind of offering you get at big hotels. I invite you not only to check out the cookbook, but also see all the different, creative input from our talented chefs at On the Beach, Bed and Breakfast!

The cookbook will be available at the Front Desk at On the Beach and also via email order: MaureenHandshy8@gmail.com
