Delicious Food at Jail Hill Inn, Galena IL Bed and Breakfast

As we walked through the front door of the Jail Hill Inn to begin the day, the smell of browning onions and baked muffins greeted us.  Our tummies started to rumble immediately even though we had already eaten breakfast at home.  Walking into the kitchen we found Matthew (the owner/innkeeper of Jail Hill Inn), taking blueberry muffins out of the oven while his mom patiently stirred gravy on the stove.  He looked up and grinned at us, clearly ready for the day ahead!

Today we’re featuring tasty delights from the Jail Hill Inn which you’ve seen featured on the blog in the past.  This is Galena’s newest bed and breakfast and the luxurious experience you can expect doesn’t end at the room; the breakfast here is KILLER!!!!   Matthew creates incredible dishes to delight and wow his guests each morning.  From muffins fresh from the oven to homemade oatmeal to the tastiest strata’s and biscuits and gravy, you won’t leave the table disappointed!

First, let’s chat about the starter courses for breakfast.  Matthew’s piping hot blueberry muffins and strawberry yogurt parfaits with homemade granola are perfect ways to begin your meal.  When you add in a cup of Intelligentsia coffee you’ve got the start to an incredible day!

Your main course is just as impressive as the first.  The strata is filled with perfectly roasted vegetables with flavors that tingle throughout your mouth.  It pairs perfectly with Matthew’s homemade pesto and the apple sausage links.  The gravy for the biscuits and gravy is creamy and flavorful; a perfect topping for fluffy warm biscuits.
