Wake your little superhero up to a great birthday breakfast with these Captain America Super Power Pancakes. Slice up some fresh strawberries and place them on top of a couple pancakes hot off the griddle. Then, fill the middle with halved blueberries. Spray a circle of whipped cream around the strawberries and add a whipped cream star against the backdrop of blueberries.

Spiderman Strawberry Shortcakes are delicious and so easy to make! Individual shortcakes should be sprayed with whipped topping before sliced strawberries are added in the shape of this season’s favorite superhero’s face. Use mini chocolate chips to outline the eyes, and then fill in the outlines with more whipped topping.

Guests will love these Batman Burgers topped with our Farmhouse Cheddar Cheese. Mold the burgers to resemble a face, and then after they’re cooked, trim the top in the shape of Batman ears. Use pieces of the cheese as eyes and create the face by cutting a little slit in the cheese for Batman’s mouth. You can also cut the cheese into the Batman logo and design his cape with barbecue sauce.

Ham and Eggs

Flavoring scrambled eggs with ham and cheese is a time-honored tradition that’s packed with protein. Start by browning small pieces of our delicious Honeygold Ham in a skillet. Once you have a nice color on the ham, add some eggs whisked with a little milk, salt and pepper before cooking until nice and fluffy. Just before removing the eggs from the heat, top it off with a bit of our Smoked Gouda and a sprinkle of chives.

Eggs and Berries

If you can’t decide whether you want something sweet or savory, try pairing a berry parfait with an egg in a hole. First, cut a three-inch hole out of a piece of bread using the top of a cup. Then, place the bread in a hot pan with a good amount of butter before breaking an egg into the hole and cooking to your preference. Finally, serve the dish with vanilla yogurt topped with fresh berries and a handful of our mixed nuts.

Apple Rings

Apple rings are a delicious substitute for pancakes. Start by cutting an assortment of our apples (Granny Smith and Fuji are the best options!) into lengthwise slices. Then, dip the slices in buttermilk before coating with a mixture of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Lastly, pan fry until golden brown and serve with maple syrup.

With these delicious recipes featuring our gourmet cheese, fruits and nuts, you can enjoy a decadent homemade breakfast even in the midst of your morning rush.

Start Your Mornings Off with a Creamy Fruit Crepe

There’s something so decadently European about indulging in a crepe filled with ripe and succulent seasonal fruits. Reminiscent of lingering late breakfasts at open-air cafes, the mouthwatering flavor and light, airy texture of a crepe can be easily duplicated right in your own kitchen. Hickory Farms is sharing some of our favorite crepe recipes below with our valued customers.

Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Sun-kissed strawberries are the star of this perennial brunch favorite. The secret to creating the perfect crepe is making the egg batter uniformly thin on a well-oiled griddle set to medium heat. Lightly brown one side, then flip, and set aside while you blend the cream cheese with the powdered sugar. The sliced strawberries should be added inside with a creamy filling. Make sure you reserve a dollop of cream cheese filling and a few berries to top the rolled crepes. Then, dust lightly with powdered sugar.
