I was off the hook from cooking over the weekend, since I was in the Smoky Mountains. We stayed at the oldest operating hotel/inn in Sevier County Tennessee. Its the Buckhorn Inn, which opened in 1938 and is just north of Gatlinburg. The Inn has their own chef and the stay includes made to order breakfast. They also do pre fixe diner, which is outstanding. We ate diner at the Inn on Friday night and hit a restaurant in town on Saturday. I’ve been going to the Smokies most of my life and this spring was the first time my wife and I stayed here. We liked it so much we book this passed weekend. IMHO it is the most relaxing place to stay in the Smokies. It’s a little step back in time and definitely a great place to treat your significant other. They also open dinner to the public, which can fill up quick.
Friday breakfast was eggs Benedict with a slice of country ham and cheese grits
Friday night I was too busy scarfing down the food so no food pic, just the menu. The trout was awesome and locally sourced
Saturday breakfast was eggs over easy and my favorite breakfast meat, country ham one more time, with potatoes.
Saturday was pancakes with blueberry compote and bacon. This was the view every morning at breakfast and no it’s not photo shopped.
So I didn’t cook, but man did I eat! Back to reality
