  • Sour cream pancakes with Suzette sauce

    "So simple yet so sublime," says Curtis Stone. "I love that these ultra-airy pancakes require no whisking of eggwhites to lighten them - the key lies in a very lumpy batter. So whatever you do, don't overmix it. Serve them hot from the pan, so your family and friends can enjoy them in all their fluffy glory."
  • Southern-style biscuits with sawmill gravy

    Scone-like buttermilk biscuits smothered in sausage gravy is a breakfast favourite in the American South. Traditionally the gravy, similar to a white sauce, is made with breakfast sausage - always pork and formed into patties - while the biscuits are often shortened with lard. It's rich and tasty dish, and would be great with a fried egg or Southern-style fried chicken. We've included a recipe for lard - you really can't beat freshly made - but butter works perfectly in the biscuits and gravy.
  • Bacon and egg pudding with salted maple

    Think of this as a savoury bread and butter pudding. It's full of all the things we love at breakfast - bacon, eggs, toast and plenty of cheese. It's an excellent option if you're having friends over for breakfast - you can do all the work the night before and bake it in the morning. Salted maple syrup riffs on the classic American bacon-maple combination.
  • Crisp rice bowls with pork, egg, kale and marinated carrot

    "Here's a peek at what's on the breakfast menu in LA's hipster neighbourhoods," says Curtis Stone, "and I'm a fan. Opt for a poached or fried egg on top, and use the sambal oelek at your discretion."
