The breakfasts and tea goodies were delicious - love the organic ingredients, too.

Best Santa Fe Bed & Breakfast experience thus far! Great breakfasts and munchies in the afternoon. Beautiful courtyard and rose garden.

The food you served for breakfast each morning was outstanding.

Food & Recipes

Santa Fe Cuisine
No Southwest vacation is complete without delicious food. In the morning, savor the aroma of fresh-ground, locally-roasted organic coffee and just-baked muffins as you snuggle in bed just a few moments more. Our breakfast entrees focus on southwestern recipes, using local, natural and organic products. All dishes are vegetarian, with bacon or breakfast meats served on the side. The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast makes a special effort accommodate those seeking a healthy, organic and vegetarian bed & breakfast.

Our generous breakfasts feature a hot entree of either a sweet or savory nature. The week's menu is varied to include a Southwestern Frittata, Blueberry Stuffed French Toast, our Southwestern Breakfast Burrito, Blue Corn Pinon Waffles or other delights that change daily. Accompany your hot entrée with our homemade breads and special granola, muesli, fresh fruit salad, whole grain breads and yogurt.

When word of our cuisine spread to the food editor of The Santa Fe New Mexican, our recipes drew headlines!

From spring to fall, enjoy breakfast outdoors where bird song and flowers greet the day. On chilly winter days, feast by the roaring fireplace of the welcoming "great room."

After a day of exploration, we welcome you back with a plate of homemade cookies and our Wine & Cheese Hour. Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and appetizers each evening from 5-6pm as you mingle with fellow guests and get tips on Santa Fe's best restaurants from our knowledgeable innkeepers.

Over the years our guests have asked for our breakfast recipes, particularly those of our Migas, Southwestern Frittatas, Callabacitas Breakfast Enchiladas and Blue Corn Waffles. Others have requested our afternoon cookie recipes, including Russian Tea Cakes, Lemon bars, Apricot White Chocolate Cookies. Still, the most-requested recipe is for our Daily Granola - a favorite now for 20 years! We are happy to share these and other recipes.

Blueberry Almond Stuffed French Toast

16 slices slightly stale white bread cut into cubes (the better the bread, the better the dish)
10 eggs
2 cups milk (or half 'n half)
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1/c maple syrup
1 cup + vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 cup sliced almonds

Layer half the bread and blueberries on bottom of greased 9x13 casserole dish. Mix eggs, milk, syrup and spices. Pour over bread and blueberries. Then plunk dollops of yogurt over eggs. Cover with remainder of bread and blueberries and push down lightly so bread is fully immersed in egg mixture. Sprinkle sliced almonds over the top.

Bake at 350 for one hour.

Serve with sliced strawberries and maple syrup.
