America's Best Breakfasts by Lee Brian Schrager and Adeena Sussman (Cookbook Review)

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the book-

Rise and dine! If there’s one meal of the day to get passionate about—no matter where you’re from in this great land—it’s breakfast with all the fixings. Featuring down-home diners, iconic establishments, and the newest local hot spots, America’s Best Breakfasts is a celebration of two of this nation’s honored traditions: hitting the open road and enjoying an endless variety of breakfasts. Even without a road trip, you can re-create favorites that will satisfy any time of day:
Shrimp and Grits, Hominy Grill, Charleston 
Croque Monsieur Sandwiches, Tartine, San Francisco 
Kimchi Pancakes, Sunshine Tavern, Portland
Filipino Steak with Garlic Fried Rice, Uncle Mike’s, Chicago
Cannoli French Toast, Café Lift, Philadelphia
Brioche Cinnamon Buns, Honey Bee, Oxford
Morning Glory Muffins, Panther Coffee, Miami

My thoughts-

 I am 100% a foodie. I love trying new things, I enjoy cooking. I love learning about other cultures through their cuisines. Breakfast may not seem like a foodie go-to type food, but I am also a southern girl and I appreciate a good buttered biscuit! There aren't many breakfasts foods that I don't like and it is a rarity to see an entire book devoted to the most important meal of the day so I was over the moon to discover America's Best Breakfasts. Not only does it spotlight my favorite meal of the day, it combines that with something else I enjoy, travel. I love that there are different sections devoted to different regions of the United States and that each section highlights some of the best restaurants of that region. There are so many mouth watering pictures of what look like delicious recipes. If you are looking to take your breakfast game to the next step or to get out of that eggs and bacon rut, America's Best Breakfast would be a great cookbook to have in your collection.
