If you are feeling adventurous or need a bit of variety added to your regular diet, try some of these breakfast recipes I found on The Lake Channel. Whether you eat outside on your patio at Smith Mountain Lake, or in the comfort of your dining room, you will enjoy these fresh ideas.

Baked Grapefruit

4 grapefruit halves

2 Tbsp. melted butter

2 Tbsp. honey

Use pink or red grapefruits for a sweet Valentine’s Day breakfast treat. Preheat oven to 450°F. Use a grapefruit knife to loosen the grapefruit sections. Place on a baking pan and brush the melted butter over the cut sections. Drizzle the honey over the cut sections. Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Boursin Omelet

8 eggs

2 tbsp. water

Salt & pepper to taste

1 tbsp. Olive Oil (not virgin, light will do)

1 tbsp. Butter

3 oz. Boursin cheese

1 tbsp. chopped scallions

Whisk the eggs, water, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Heat the oil in a round, medium-sized frying pan on medium heat and add the egg mixture, then turn up the heat to medium-high. When the omelet is set, crumble the cheese on top. Then fold the omelet over and remove it from the pan to the serving dish. Sprinkle with scallions. Serve with toasted bagels and the rest of the Boursin.

Spicy Hash Brown Quiche

4 cups leftover baked potatoes or frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed

1-1/2 tsp. seasoning salt

1-1/2 cups (6oz) shredded Monterey jack hot pepper cheese 1 1/2 cups cooked, crumbled sausage (or use diced, cooked ham)

1-1/2 cups (6oz) shredded Swiss cheese

2/3 cups half-and-half cream

3 eggs

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 10-inch pie plate. Press hash browns onto the bottom and upsides of the pie plate. (This is the crust.) Sprinkle with salt. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until crisp on the edges. Remove from oven, reduce temperature to 350 degrees. Sprinkle pepper cheese in the crust. Top with about 1 cup of sausage. Sprinkle Swiss cheese over the sausage layer. Briskly whisk Half and Half with eggs. Pour over other ingredients. Scatter the remaining sausage on top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve with salsa on the side. Makes 6 servings.
