A National Park, a National Symbol, a Natural Treasure.  From Oregon’s world-famous Crater Lake National Park to a prime viewing spot for bald eagles, this drive owes its dramatic scenery and abundant wildlife to a rich volcanic past. This All-American Road extends all the way to Lassen Volcanic National Park in California. But the Oregon segment alone offers plenty to absorb in a day.

Gingered Pear and Raspberry Pandowdy

We innkeepers believe it’s all “about the food!”  We’ve have discovered the joy in finding new ways to use the fresh, local and organic ingredients found in abundance at road side stands and farmer’s markets in Oregon.  In Oregon wine country, you not only find wine grapes, but there are berries growing on the sides of the road, greens growing in rows along winding streets and huge gorgeous pears hanging off trees in the orchards in the Mt. Hood region. So, how can it not be all about the food?

The fact is, Oregon has always been in the forefront when it comes to culinary travel and sustainable travel.  Long before good, local and fresh foods became the popular trend, Oregon led the way in culinary tourism because of all the agricultural treasures found here.  Pair all that great food with some spectacular travel options and you have found the perfect draw for visitors seeking the perfect vacation.

If you are a foodie, love to cook, and enjoy the whole bed and breakfast package, you might be an epicure!  Visit the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild on Pinterest and Facebook to ‘see’ how Oregon Bed and Breakfasts are using local ingredients in their menus and still leading the pack in culinary tourism in Oregon.

BLUEBERRY CROISSANT FRENCH TOAST FROM SANDLAKE COUNTRY INN
6-7 Large Croissants, torn into pieces
8 oz Cream Cheese

12 Eggs
1 1/2 Cups Milk
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
1 tsp Cinnamon

Pam

Spray 9×13 baking dish with Pam. Tear up croissants and place half in bottom of baking dish. Cut up cream cheese into small pieces and place them on top of croissants (I use a butter slicer). Put half the blueberries on top of cream cheese. Layer other half of torn croissants on top, then rest of blueberries. Beat eggs, milk, maple syrup and cinnamon together in a bowl. Pour egg mixture over croissant mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, scatter pecans over french toast.  Melt butter & add brown sugar to it to make a glaze like mixture. Drizzle mixture over french toast. Bake in 350 degree oven for 50- 60 minutes. Watch carefully last 10 minutes to make sure pecans don’t burn…if getting too dark, put some foil lightly over french toast to stop browning.  Makes 8 generous portions
