Do you wake up some morning’s with your mouth craving a favorite breakfast comfort food? Do you then find yourself haunted by the thought of those flavors until you can finally sink your teeth into that first heavenly bite?

Every six months or so my food cravings get the best of me; I’m unable to control my wish for a steaming hot Chili Cheese Omelette, and a big plate of Strawberry Roll Ups. I drive 2 hours just to satiate my cravings at my favorite breakfast joint, Wades Pancake House in my hometown of Colorado Springs, CO.  

Another one of my favorite morning dishes and today’s featured recipe are savory-sweet, Blueberry Cheese Blintzes!
