Onboard Holland America Line

Blue Ribbon Breakfasts

You don’t have to forget about cereal and oatmeal entirely, but you’ll be less likely to want them once you’ve made these new recipes yourself. We showed you how to make a souffle-like fluffy omelet with asparagus and smoked salmon filling—no flipping or rolling involved. We transferred the skillet to the oven to let the more even heat gently cook the omelet and melt the cheese without any chance of scorching the bottom. Then you learned how easy it is to make tender blueberry pancakes with a big dose of berries in every pancake. Plus, we showed you our tip for keeping the blueberries whole and avoiding grayish-purple pancakes.

Blueberry Pancakes

Tired of tough, tasteless, blue-gray pancakes? For fluffy, flavorful blueberry pancakes, use frozen wild blueberries and a light hand when mixing.



Fluffy Omelet with Asparagus and Smoked Salmon Filling

While developing our recipe for fluffy omelets, we realized that we had to rework traditional omelet fillings. We went with intensely flavored but lightweight ingredients that would not impede the omelet’s rise.
