Book Description

June 7 2011
Savor the best part of the day.
Wake up to gooey cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven, spiced apple pancakes dripping with golden syrup, delicately poached eggs lavished with lemony hollandaise, or thick slices of sizzling maple-glazed bacon. All these recipes and over 100 others can be found in this, the only cookbook you’ll ever need to make your mornings spectacular.

In Breakfast Comforts, celebrated cookbook author Rick Rodgers shares his favorite tried-and-true recipes for the morning meal, along with a collection of mouthwatering dishes from beloved breakfast and brunch restaurants across the country. Peppered with Rodgers’ nostalgic, personal tales, it also includes engaging stories behind the featured restaurants and the signature dishes that have made them so popular.

Over 100 recipes will satisfy any breakfast craving, whether you prefer a sweet or savory start to the day. Showcasing American regional cuisine, the restaurant recipes include decadent cheese and berry blintzes from New York; chile-laced migas from the Southwest; crab cake Benedict from the Pacific Northwest; and the lightest, flakiest biscuits—with plenty of hearty sausage gravy on the side—from the American South. You’ll also find recipes for all the classics, such as butter- and syrup-drenched waffles; marmalade-stuffed French toast; scrambled eggs bursting with herbs and tomatoes; crispy corned beef hash; and sticky caramel-pecan rolls. Wake up to gooey cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven, spiced apple pancakes dripping with golden syrup, delicately poached eggs lavished with lemony hollandaise, or thick slices of sizzling maple-glazed bacon.

No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll find inspiration for every palate and every occasion, from a casual family breakfast to a lazy Sunday brunch with friends, in this ultimate collection of comfort-food breakfasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing mouth-watering must-have book! Nov. 3 2011
By Stella
When I first layed eyes on this book, my mouth watered. This book is for anyone who loves Brunch food, a some sweet dishes, savoury dishes. The book includes pancake recipes, egg recipes, waffles, french toast your usual breakfast ones as well as some more unique ones. Lots of recipes almost all with photos (which I think all recipe books need!). The photos are gorgeous and the layout looks great. I made 2 of the recipes so far: the one on the cover, which is Eggs Blackstone with roasted tomatoes and the other is Baked eggs with Spinach and Prosciutto. Both turned out as nice as the photo. Instructions were clear and concise. I love this book. Can't wait until I make another recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS !!! Aug. 20 2011
By Deborrah - Published on Amazon.com

I have hundreds of cookbooks and I love breakfast as does my family. If I had to narrow down which cookbook I would keep as my go to for breakfast recipes this would be the one. The instructions are clear and concise, not hard to follow, so whether you are an experienced cook or novice, you can follow these recipes. The photos (which I always like in any cookbook, I want to know what it should look like when I am finished), are spectacular. You eat with your eyes and these pictures will inspire you to try your hand at the recipe offerings. I have made several of the recipes for my family, Eggs Blackstone (featured on the cover), Huevos Rancheros, Cinnamon Rolls, Apple Fritters, etc ... all of them turned out perfectly and all I had to do was follow the recipe (I always follow the recipe to the letter the first time before I tweak anything ... these didn't need any tweaking, it was that good). The cookbook is organized nicely into breakfast categories so if you are looking for egg dishes, sides, from the griddle, sweets, it is there for you and easy to find. The ingredients used aren't exotic, you should be able to find what you need in your local grocery store. Truly a treasure trove of recipes that will delight your palette and range from sophisicated to just fun !

5.0 out of 5 stars Breakfast Comforts by Rick Rodgers Aug. 7 2011
By J. Lew - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Williams-Sonoma Breakfast Comforts by Rick Rodgers is the best breakfast cookbook I have ever purchased. Not only are the recipes amazing, all the photos in the book are equally inviting. The restaurant recipes are fantastic too. It makes me want to hurry out of my warm bed to whip up one of the featured breakfasts. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with this book. It should be on the best sellers list, if not already!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its title June 14 2011
By D. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Breakfast Comforts definitely lives up to the title. How scrumptious the recipes are (and the pictures, you'll salivate just looking at them). My husband and I are big breakfast fans, we'll eat it for dinner. I recommend the blueberry muffin recipe. Delicious! I bought this at Williams Sonoma retail store for full price and it was worth it, but it is discounted on Amazon so that is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever. Oct. 27 2012
By nebraska15 - Published on Amazon.com
I love this cookbook! Ingredients are normal things you would have in the pantry or buy at the store, steps are easy to follow, pictures make everything look delicious! So far I have tried the potato pancakes, caramel rolls, applesauce, buttermilk pancakes, and waffles. Everything has been a "make it again" success. Highly recommend!
