Recipes from Our Colorado Inn

Breakfast at Briar Rose Bed and Breakfast offers a variety of delights: Everything is organic, pasture-raised, and grass-fed when available: fresh fruit, creamy yogurt, tasty egg dishes, our fabulous toasty homemade granola, vegetarian dishes, and home-baked treats. Some of these recipes are our own, like the Southwestern Frittata, the Salsa Rojo, and the Granola. Most have been refined  by our staff over the years, and many of the bread recipes were handed down to us from the previous B&B owners. When the recipes are not ours, we will do our best to give proper recognition. However, in many cases they have been floating around the Briar Rose for so long – long before we bought the inn – that we simply do not know where they came from. Our intent here is both to provide you with fun time-tested recipes, and to give you an idea of the many treats you may see when you stay with us. Enjoy!

We apologize for the small number of recipes. We are in the process of moving recipes from our old website to this one. It will take us some time. Please check back. Thanks!
