Texas has about six weeks of nice weather in the spring when the temperature hovers in the “just right” range between too cold and too hot. When we woke up last week to a wonderful Saturday morning, coffee on the patio was definitely in order. On the rare occasions when great weather intersects with a forgiving schedule, Allen often cooks bacon and eggs on the grill while I kick back and relax. On this particular morning, however, a box of Robinhood Meetinghouse Pecan Sticky Buns was calling my name from the freezer. I popped them in the oven, and we both enjoyed our first cup of coffee while they warmed.
I’ve been following Gagné Foods since we tried their amazing layered cream cheese biscuits last year. This Maine family owns and operates The Robinhood Meetinghouse, a Bath, Maine restaurant, and as often happens, certain menu items become so popular that demand for them grows outside the four walls of the restaurant. We loved the layered cream cheese biscuits, so I made a mental note to try the sticky buns. Fast forward a couple of months, and they turned out to be the perfect accompaniment to coffee on the patio!
Chef Michael Gagné uses only natural ingredients in his baked goods — no artificial colors or flavors, no GMOs or corn syrup. The sticky buns are made with whole milk, real butter and cream cheese, so yes, they are decadently rich and tender. The sticky topping of brown sugar, butter, honey and pecans adds wonderfully gooey goodness. Given the choice between sweet and savory breakfast choices, I will always select sweet, and have probably tasted more than my share of sweet rolls. These sticky buns are completely impressive, maybe even more so because they are frozen. Delicious and convenient – one of my favorite combinations!
