2010 Trend: Artisanal Breakfasts
Early birds (and everyone else) will love these new small-batch breakfast foods.
One of America's premier dairies, Bellwether Farms in Sonoma, now makes a decadent yogurt with milk from its East Friesian sheep.
First sold at the Brooklyn Flea, a new NYC venue for food artisans, Early Bird granola is unusually deep-flavored and crisp. It's healthy, too: The oats are baked in extra-virgin olive oil.
D'Artagnan applies its charcuterie know-how to American breakfast sausage, and the results are robust and juicy, especially the traditional variety spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon.
The luxe mushroom company Aux Delices des Bois, known for its truffles, now sells another delicacy: artisanal bacon. Richly smoked, it's made from pork humanely raised by Amish farmers in Pennsylvania.
