I love a good breakfast sandwich, so when we got our Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker for Christmas I was excited. But I never looked at any of the recipes in the instruction manual and fell into the habit of making the same old bacon, egg, and cheese bagel (which is still delicious). So when I got "Crazy for Breakfast Sandwiches" I was looking forward to trying out some new ideas. I'm not much of a cook so I tried to find some interesting recipes that weren't too complicated. For my kids I made the chocolate PB BP (chocolate, peanut butter, and banana on pancakes) which were a hit. My daughter loves fruit so the sweet fruit breakfast sandwich was another winner, and I fell in love with that one too. The kids' favorite though was the bacon waffle stack. For my own tastes I tried the bacon, spinach, and hash brown stack. It was tasty, plus eating fresh spinach made me feel less guilty about stuffing bacon between two hash brown patties. My wife is a foodie so I had to find something a little more fancy to make her, and there are definitely enough recipes in the book to fit the bill. She enjoyed the goat cheese and fig croissants and the lemony artichoke-emmentaler flatbread, both were exactly the kind of thing she likes.There are a lot more recipes I want to try that I haven't gotten to yet. There is a pretty good variety to choose from, including healthy options, desserts, non-breakfast sandwiches, and more. Since everyone in my family has different tastes this book is great for finding something everyone likes. I'm not the kind of person that can whip up something on my own so the book has been great for trying new things. There are a lot of things you can do with a breakfast sandwich maker that I never thought of. If you want to make some really tasty things without a lot of hassle I definitely recommend this book for you.
I love my Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker but the manufacturer includes some rather ho-hum recipes for its use, and my time for experimentation is limited.Enter one Jessica Harlan and her "Crazy for Breakfast Sandwiches." I love her disclosure that, while the recipes were developed using a Hamilton Beach product, they can be used with any other machine of its ilk or even a panini press.She provides a little background on the breakfast sandwich through the years and gives tips on how to automate your production by setting aside small amounts of cooked meat and vegetables or cooking a few extra waffles or what have you just for this purpose (among other tips).But her creativity really shines in the more than 70 "healthy or decadent, vegetarian or meaty, fancy or lowbrow" breakfast sandwich recipes. She categorizes them as Classics and Beyond, Meatless, Healthy, Brunch, Open-Face and Not-for-Breakfast Sammies. She even provides 11 dessert recipes, make-ahead components like biscuits, corn cakes, pancakes, sushi rice cakes and more. There's even a measurement conversion chart. There's truly a recipe for every taste -- Simple Fried Egg on Toast for the unadventurous sort, Lobster and Tarragon Crème FraÃ®che for the gourmand and Green Eggs and Ham for the tots.If I had to nitpick, I wish there were photos. Other than that, I'm pretty much smitten with this book. I'm off to the kitchen to make an Improv Pain au Chocolat!
As usual, Jessica Harlan delivers! After enjoying her other cookbooks, I ordered this one as soon as I could. After reading through the recipes (which include clear instructions as well as nice anecdotes about how she came to create or discover each recipe) we bought the suggested breakfast sandwich maker and started working our way through the great recipes. Having four kids in school and two adults who work outside the home, breakfast can sometimes be a "grab what you can" meal. With the breakfast sandwich maker and this cookbook, my family is actually eating "real" breakfast again!
I just received this book and haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes. But I looked through it and it looks like there will be lots of fund stuff to make. I recommend this book to others who like to try making their own breakfast sandwiches at home.
When we first got the Crazy for Breakfast cookbook I really enjoyed reading the recipes. My husband kicked in immediately and started making one of the recipes the first day we got it. When we purchased it we looked up the sandwich maker the author mentioned she used and bought that the same day. We have been having fun with the recipes ever since. We have purchased other recipe books from Ms Harlan and have enjoyed them as well.
I like how this cookbook provides recipes to utilize the breakfast sand which maker for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts. I just wish it had pictures of the finished sand which, otherwise this book is great.
