Gourmet Country Breakfast
Because we know that no day starts without a steaming cuppa Joe, your breakfast experience will begin early when coffee,tea, and baked goods are available in our dining room starting at 7:00 am. We encourage you to help yourself.
Between 8:00-10:00am, join us for a hearty and healthy breakfast. Tables for two and four are situated so guests can choose to have their own table or mingle and meet other guests.
Breakfast includes an array of juices and fresh fruit, homemade goodies and a different hot entrée daily. You will enjoy both sweet and savory entrees as we vary our recipes to meet the tastes of our guests. Do you have a special Bernerhof recipe or a special request for breakfast? Please let us know! We’ll do the best we can to accommodate your requests and any special dietary needs you share with us. Need a candle and “happy birthday" ? We can do that too.

White Mountain’s take on Bay Crab Cakes
Pick through the crabmeat to check for shell pieces. Be careful not to break up the lumps.
Place in a bowl and add the Old Bay, dry mustard, parsley and cracker crumbs.
In a separate bowl combine the eggs, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco.
Whisk to mix and pour over the crabmeat mixture. Mix lightly and portion. Sauté to order.
- 2 lbs lump crabmeat
- 2 whole eggs

- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tbsp parsley, chopped

Hash Browns With Onions
For vegetarian and vegan guests of Bernerhof Inn Bed and Breakfast, this is one of our oft-made dishes, but really everybody likes these flavorful hash browns. This dish uses our very own Claire’s Seasoning, an old family blend of eight kinds of flour, powdered garlic, powdered onion and season salt. We tell guests how to make it for themselves.
Add oil to a large skillet over low heat.
Spread one-half of the shredded potatoes evenly in the skillet.
Distribute diced onion over the potatoes.
Add seasonings, using your judgment as to amount.
Distribute the other half of the potatoes over the contents of the pan.
Use flat end wooden spoon to unify the circular shape by pushing the outside edges in, toward the center.
When the underneath side of the mixture begins to brown, after about 15 minutes, flip it if you are brave and able, or lay a flat skillet on top and flip it over.
Reshape with the flat end of wooden spoon.
When the second side begins to brown, after about 10 minutes, slide the hash brown onto an oval serving dish and present to guests. Serve warm.
Tips and variations
We usually cut these hash browns into wedges and serve like pizza slices with a triangular pie server. For a romantic touch, we've been known to make these into a heart shape instead of a circle.
- 2 medium red potatoes, scrubbed, with eyes removed, and shredded
- Half of a large onion, diced
- 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt
- Ground black pepper
- Grandpa's Seasoning or your favorite all-purpose seasoning
