Each morning the aroma of fresh coffee brewing and breakfast being prepared drifts through the Door County Lighthouse Inn, beckoning you to come enjoy breakfast.
The buffet has hearty cereal, juice, milk and coffee. We serve a fresh fruit cup and a hot plated breakfast of egg dishes or French toast accompanied with your breakfast, plus warm muffins or coffee cake specialties. Should you have any food restrictions, please let us know in advance.
Breakfast is a great time to enjoy conversation with your fellow Door County or lighthouse enthusiasts before starting your day’s adventures. We are available to answer any questions and make suggestions on things to do and where to eat in Door County.
Coffee is available at 7:30 am and your full breakfast is served at 8:30 or 9:30 am each day – your choice!
Blueberry French Toast Cobbler
1 loaf of French or Italian bread
½ cup milk
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup sugar (use less if berries are sweet)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cornstarch
4 ½ cups (1 ½ pounds) blueberries
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Slice bread into eight, ¾ inch-thick slices; arrange in a shallow baking pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, baking powder, and vanilla. Pour over bread, turning to coat evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 2 hours at room temperature or overnight in refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 9X13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in a medium bowl; gently fold in blueberries until well coated. Spread blueberries in prepared pan; place egg-soaked bread, wettest side up, on berries, wedging slices in tightly. Brush tops of bread with butter and bake 20-25 minutes until toast is golden and berries are bubbling around edge of pan. To serve, place toast on plates; spoon blueberry sauce from bottom of pan over top and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.
