We are thrilled to share the news that one of our member inns, the Inn at Riverbend, won the Gold at the “The Inn-Credible Breakfast Cook-Off,” designed to recognize the best “inn” breakfast in North America. The inn, located in Pearisburg, Virginia, won with its “Breakfast Sushi,” submitted by Linda Hayes and Eric Hanson.
“Breakfast Sushi” was the result of brainstorming over the summer months. Since Eric eats sushi weekly, the team decided to try the concept of sushi to create a new menu item with the wrapper being a different “vessel” to deliver breakfast flavors similar to Eggs Benedict. Using flavored soy wrappers rather than traditional nori diminishes the strong flavor of the seaweed. Virginia country ham makes one of them a perfect Colonial roll!
The Inn at Riverbend will be serving “Breakfast Sushi” on Wednesday mornings so call to make your reservation to stay on Tuesday nights! My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Inn at Riverbend earlier this year while visiting Virginia and you can read my trip report on the U.S. forum at the BedandBreakfast.com message board. With Linda’s permission, I’ve also posted the Breakfast Sushi recipe on the Recipe Forum. Enjoy! Rose
