Breakfast at Dreamcatcher Bed and Breakfast

We would like to welcome you to our Gourmet Breakfast here at the Dreamcatcher! 
 
First, you must try our signature “appetizer” dish, Hot Oats Brulee, everyone’s favorite.  It is a combination of Steel Cut and Old Fashioned Oats, raisins and sliced almonds, which we slow cook in milk, and then cover with natural cane sugar, and  torch, as is done for Creme Brulee.
 
We then will feature a unique entree such as Eggs Jambon , Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict , Taos tamale bake, or a peach stuffed french toast  to get your day off to the right start.  The selections rotate between, a sweet dish, a, savory one and finally a southwestern breakfast,  all guaranteed to satisfy. Your meal will be  accompanied by fresh fruit, home made bread or muffins, and a small sweet treat to complete the full gourmet breakfast. 
 
We are always happy to accomodate any dietary restrictions you might have. If you are vegan, vegetarian, gluten or dairy free, we have the breakfast for you!  We strive to use local Ingredients when possible, for example; Taos made free range pork sausage and fresh herbs and veggies from our garden. 
 
We serve our breakfast from 8am – 9am. The choice is yours, come early or sleep in , it’s your vacation. We will always have hot New Mexican Pinon coffee and Starbucks French Roast ready for you to start your day.  
We also have a wonderful selection of herbal and organic teas .
 
Breakfast at the Dreamcatcher B&B is special and we hope you enjoy every last bite!
 
Need to leave earlier than 8am?  We are happy to provide you with breakfast items for you to keep in your room’s refrigerator to have as you head off.  We usually can provide such items as yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, cereals, etc…
Start with Oatmeal Mix:

  • ¼ cup of slivered almonds
Preparation:
  1. Fill a Cup container full with milk 2 cups
  2. One Cup container full with the Oatmeal Mix.
  3. Put about 1-2 tablespoons of salt in the milk.
  4. Get the milk almost to boil, pour in the oatmeal.
  5. Bring down the temperature to moderate
  6. Stir regularly (otherwise, the mixture sticks to the bottom).
  7. Cooking takes 25-35 minutes.
  8. If you don’t serve it immediately, pour content into the crockpot, set the crockpot on low.
  9. Fill about 1/3 – 1/2 of a Ramekin with oat mixture.
  10. Sprinkle raw sugar (about 1 spoonful) on top
  11. Torch the sugar until it has crystallized
  12. Make a topping (half sour cream, half vanilla yogurt)
  13. Put a dollop of topping on top of the Brule, serve.
Serves 10-12 people.
Ingredients
(Spanish or Italian dish, depending on the cheese and meat used)
Set oven at 350-375 degrees, depending on elevation.
  • Round ham slice for each egg
  • Smear of pesto
  • 2 eggs for each person served
  • 1 cherry tomato for each person, halved
  • Shredded Manchego Cheese for Spanish flavor or Mozzarella for an Italian flavor
Preparation
  1. Spray the muffin tins with Pam or smear them with Olive Oil.
  2. Then place a slice of ham into the tin. It should buckle a little, but able to stay in place, touching the bottom of the tin, making a bowl. (If it cannot, the ham is too thick.)
  3. Smear a little pesto on to the inside bottom of the ham bowl.
  4. Break the egg and put the ingredient in the ham bowl.
  5. Slice the cherry tomato and plop it on the top of the egg.
  6. Sprinkle a little (I mean a very little) Manchego cheese on top of the egg and tomato.
  7. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  8. Put a sheet of aluminum foil lightly on top of the muffin tin.
  9. Place the muffin tin into the oven once it has reached the target temperature.
  10. Cook for 25-30 minutes. Take it out and look at the eggs.
  11. If the albumin is sold white, the food is cooked. If it is still clear, then cook them for another 10 minutes or until the albumin turns white. The edges of the ham may have turned dark and that is OK.
  12. Take off the aluminum foil and put a towel over the tin until served to preserve heat. If the dish sits out for more than 10 minutes, put the dish back into the warm oven until ready to be served.
  13. Using your fingers pick up the ham bowl, it should come out from the tin easily.
  14. Place on the plate, garnish and serve.

You can add things like grilled asparagus to make the plate more colorful.
