The VIRGINIA SHOPPER is on the prowl again! It’s Fall after all, and the nip in the air stirs up a hunger for a hefty breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day they say, and I believe it, don’t you? And giving a gourmet breakfast gift basket for any special occasion is one of the nicest things I could ever do. Reserving one for myself and my family is certainly next on my list too!
Breakfast Baskets make fantabulous gifts for special people.
Picture this: When we visit my Aunt Mary, she fixes pancakes and bacon every Sunday morning for our whole family. She doesn’t have to wake us up either because the tantalizing aromas from the kitchen do the trick. We all come bounding down the stairs hollering, “What’s for breakfast?” as if we didn’t know.
WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST?
Well, Aunt Mary is getting a grand surprise for her birthday! The Blue Ridge Breakfast Gift Basket! I found it at my favorite little shop in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It’s where gourmet foods are a proud specialty, and if Teddy (the store’s puppy mascot) doesn’t get to the sausage first, the breakfast baskets are some of the most popular items on the store’s menu of top-o-the-line gifts.
There’s the Shenandoah Valley Breakfast– This beautifully decorated gift basket is filled with 12 oz. Edwards Hickory Smoked Gourmet Bacon, 1 lb. Byrd Mill Cinnamon Muffin Mix, a Wade’s Mill Biscuit Mix, Fancy Hill Blackberry Jam, a mug of Mountain Valley Honey, and Virginia Born & Bred Coffee.
Or how about Biscuits and Jam? A classic southern pleasure: fresh warm biscuits with homemade jam. Fancy Hill’s jams are made the old-fashioned way, one batch at a time in the family kitchen, and Wade’s Mill stone-ground flours are milled in a traditional style daily right here in Rockbridge County from all-organic grains.
The Family Gathering Breakfast Basket is the answer to any breakfast lover’s dream! The ultimate in breakfast foods straight from the heart of Virginia, this beautifully decorated gift basket is filled to overflowing with Edwards breakfast meats: 12 oz. of delicious Hickory Smoked Sausage Links, 12 oz. Pepper-Coated Virginia Country Bacon, 12 oz. Edwards Hickory Smoked Dry-Cured Country Bacon; 12 oz. Edwards Smoked Dry-Cured Country Style Virginia Ham Slices, ready to fry; 1 lb. Wades Mill White Grits, 1 lb. Wade’s Mill Biscuit Mix; 8 oz. each of Fancy Hill Apple Butter and Strawberry-Rhubarb jam; Virginia Born & Bred Coffee; 12 oz. Old Mill Pancake and Waffle Mix; a mug of Mountain Valley Virginia Honey; and 8 oz. Sugar Tree Maple Syrup from Virginia’s Highland County to top it off. Everything you need to serve breakfast for the entire family.
