Giveaway: Eat Boutique Breakfast Gift Box

As we head into the winter season, thoughts turn to holiday gifts and tokens for hosts and hostesses. Thanks to my avid canning habit, I always have an assortment of jams, chutneys, and pickles to give to those in the near vicinity, but nearly every year, December catches me by surprise and I find myself running out of time to compile and pack up boxes for my further flung loved ones.

That’s where Eat Boutique comes in. They create thoughtful collections of small batch preserves, mixes, candies, syrups, and other fancy treats that make wonderful gifts when you can’t find the time to send out your own homemade goodies.

Because Maggie and her team at Eat Boutique are awesome, they’ve given me one of their Breakfast Gift Boxes to giveaway here (it’s an extra special weekend giveaway!). This box contains Kenyon’s Apple and Spice Pancake Mix, Nutting Farm Maple Syrup, Early Bird Sweet and Salty Granola, Sqirl Cashmere Nectarine Jam, and Greenpoint Honey. It costs $55 (the price includes shipping) and would be a tasty treat for someone who deserves a particularly sweet morning during the holidays.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Leave a comment on this post and share your favorite holiday breakfast.
  2. Comments will close at 12 noon east coast time on Monday, November 19, 2012. Winner will be chosen at random and will be posted to the blog over the weekend.
  3. Giveaway open to US residents only.
  4. One comment per person, please. Entries must be left via the comment form on the blog at the bottom of this post. I do not accept submissions via email.

One more thing! If you’ve not yet gotten yourself a copy of my book, they’re giving one away over on the Eat Boutique blog (if you’re not reading their blog regularly, you should really start. They feature lots of gorgeously photographed recipes and tutorials). Finally, for you Boston-area folks, I’m going to be signing copies of my book (along with a handful of other cookbook authors) at the Eat Boutique Holiday Market on December 9. I hope to see some of you there!

    I’m not fussy; being a bachelor, just about any breakfast that’s cooked for me is fantastic. If I get to choose, nothing too fancy, but if it has biscuits and gravy, I’m happy!

    Apple dutch babies! Probably the most delicious breakfast food I ever make. For the uninitiated, it involves sauteing chopped apples in butter with a bit of cinnamon and sugar, and then pouring a pancake-like batter over the top and baking it in the oven. The pancake puffs up and the apples get caramelized. Seriously good.

    Our traditional Christmas morning breakfast is sausage/egg casserole and homemade overnight cinnamon rolls. Great looking gift box!

    Stuffed French toast, two pieces of bread with strawberry preserves and cream cheese in the middle, dipped in egg and milk and fried in a hot skillet with butter. Needs only a sprinkle of powdered sugar and be accompanied by good bacon and hot tea.

    My favorite holiday breakfast is easy to make for a crowd and keeps everyone full until the afternoon feast! This year it will probably be this savory oatmeal with blue cheese and a fried egg.

    On Christmas morning, my family has my sister’s Moravian coffee cake, a variety of muffins and sweet breads baked by my brother and a big bowl of fruit. We munch on it slowly all morning before starting to open gifts at noon. Mid-morning my sister-in-law and I sneak in the kitchen to make omelets because we can’t stand the sugar anymore.

    I love to go out for breakfast! I like a nice big corner table, the morning paper & Eggs Benedict. It’s something I have once or twice a year as a special treat. Eggs still soft, rich, velvety sauce & extra toasted English muffins to wipe up the leftovers . . . . And then a nice strong cup of brewed tea(coffee if I must) while I do the crossword in pen.

    My favorite holiday breakfast is Christmas morning! No matter where I was as a child, the Matron of the house would cook up something special. The best one I remember though was one morning my mom managed to wake up before me and by the time I was up she had quite a spread on the table!

    Walnut pancakes with powdered sugar and a side of ham and fried eggs and potatoes. Oh sure we paid for such meals later by becoming quite the fat family haha but boy is it worth it haha.

    The week leading up to Christmas I eat a buttered sice of panettone with a cafe latte for breakfast. I think of it as the flipside of fasting during the week leading up to Easter.

    My dad, on the other hand, always ate leftover squid in hot sauce for breakfast on Christmas morning while we opened our presents.

    Patricia N. says:

    When the kids were little, we always had Belgian waffles with butter and syrup or fresh fruit and whipped cream. Still my favorite breakfast; but only on special occasions.
