START YOUR DAY OFF RIGHT

Breakfast at the Linden Tree is a great experience for those that really enjoy a hearty start to the day, so bring a hearty appetite!


Visit our Recipe Blog if you would like to find a favorite dish.


We do bacon or sausage each day plus eggs how you like them and a potato dish. We do eggs: sunny side, easy over, medium, light, well done; poached English or dropped; scrambled , boiled; even Italian style as Frittatas if we are not too busy; Tobey cooks her famous scones fresh each morning. There is a wide range of toasting breads, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, teas (including PG Tips ) and exceptional quality fresh ground coffee. At the moment we are using a Columbian coffee. We always grind our coffee fresh, and use the French press method. Eat outside on the deck or inside in the dining room or sunroom. During the day help yourself to teas and cookies, and in the Summer, some fresh-made lemonade.

(We can also accommodate special dietary needs if you give us advance notice)

MELT IN YOUR MOUTH (HEAVENLY) SCONES:

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter ( 5 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 6-8 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ½ cup dried fruits or mini semi-sweet chocolate chip

DIRECTIONS

Add egg, 6-8 tablespoons heavy cream, and dried fruit, such as currents, chopped apricots, or craisins, or mini chocolate chips, I like the semi-sweet….
Mix till it forms a dough, I start with a wooden spoon and then use my hands (just washed and clean of course!!) knead gently about 10 times….drop spoonfuls of your desired size on an ungreased cookie sheet, cook in 400 degree oven, (again, I use my hands to make the size scone I like, but you can determine which method works best for you!!) cook about 10 to 14 minutes, your oven time may vary, mine is a bit crazy, and it takes a different time each day!! Enjoy them warm from the oven. If you have any leftover, you can warm them up in the oven for a few minutes and they will freshen up nicely.
