Savory and Sweet Recipes

Nothing like veggies fresh-from-the-farm or your own garden to make a recipe just taste better. Ready to bake up a savory strata? For good measure, we also included a fruit cobbler – think of it as dessert at breakfast.

Garden Gate B&B is located in Sturgeon Bay, the gateway to Door County. The innkeepers don’t mince words when it comes to food, noting that breakfast is their signature. They shop the local farmers’ market to source super fresh ingredients, like those used in this Brunch Strata.
