Wine Country Inn Recipes
Yes, we are surrounded by many fantastic Wine Country restaurants. But a highlight for many of our guests during their stay at the Wine Country Inn is simply the “goodies” we make both at breakfast and during our afternoon Wine Social, where we serve appetizers and finger foods to accompany a local Napa Valley winery pouring some of their fantastic wine.
Due to many guest requests, we have published a collection of our Wine Country Inn recipes, which is available in our gift shop at the Front Desk. And now for the first time, we are putting a selection of recipes on our web site, too. Please note: Because we’re used to cooking for a group (!), many of our recipes are for 8+ people. You can modify as needed.
Below is the recipe for one of our breakfast mainstays: our homemade granola. See the links to the left for additional recipes. Enjoy!
2 Cups Quaker Old Fashion oats
1 cup almonds, slivered or sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 stick butter
1 cup coconut, flaked
sprinkle of cinnamon and salt
1/4 cup honey
1 cup raisins
In a large baking pan, mix together oats and almonds. In a small bowl, stir together melted butter and honey, then pour over oats and mix well. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt, then stir. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, stirring regularly. Add coconut and bake until medium brown. Remove from the oven and add raisins. Stir frequently while cooling to prevent sticking. Store in air-tight container.
