Breakfast in bed: Stacked Granola


Jessica Helgeson, who has contributed a series of delicious recipes to Hither & Thither, agreed to share this sweet breakfast idea, just in time for spring. She used melon, but you can use whatever is showing up at your local markets—pomegranates, stone fruits, or berries would be delicious as well. 

Stacked Granola and Melon
by Jessica at SEE Salt

This breakfast recipe is so special to my heart because it was served to me in bed by my sweet Caroline and her daddy on Mother’s Day. I wanted to share it with you all with the hope that you make it to treat yourself or to show someone how much you appreciate them.

Numbers correlate to layers of the stack starting from the bottom up.
(1) Granola
(2) Honeydew finely diced
(3) Second layer granola
(4) Cantaloupe finely diced
Greek Yogurt
Vanilla bean

Forming ring, or tin can with ends removed and well-washed. (For example.)


Place granola, finely diced honeydew and finely diced cantaloupe in separate bowls. Drain your diced melon if there is excess juice.


Add a small amount of honey to each of your bowls of ingredients and stir. This acts as your binder.


Start adding your first layer of granola . Be sure to firmly press down each layer with a tamper or something flat. Continue with each layer working your way up to the top. Carefully slide the ring off while pressing slightly on the top the ingredients with tamper to secure. This should come off easily.

Finish with your yogurt and scent with a vanilla bean for extra specialness.




Serve to someone you love and appreciate—which can totally be yourself!
