Easter Brunch Recipe Roundup

Who doesn’t love brunch!!! Well, I actually read an article that Pat (from Southern Charm on Bravo) thinks that it’s tacky. Maybe it’s the word “brunch”. Perhaps we should call it “heavy late breakfast with cocktails”? I’m dreaming of  an easter brunch where the weather is perfect, the insane hordes of wasps are gone (seriously, what is up with the crazy number of wasps this spring?), and the champagne is cold! I’ve decided to get to planning a little early this year and have rounded up a few recipes that I have my eye on for Easter. I like to have both sweet and savory so there’s something for everyone to enjoy since not all six year olds love a quiche lorraine…

I have made this a few times before using this exact recipe from the spendwithpennies.com site. It is so legit. I will say, keep to the recipe on this one. I believe the colby cheese really makes it. Not that it wouldn’t be delicious with cheddar or any other cheese of choice, but if your looking for authentic CB casserole – stick to the colby.

This looks so amazing and how can you possibly go wrong with a recipe that has 2 ingredients?!

 

Any lastly, one of my own recipes – Quick and Easy Bacon Eggs Benedict

Here’s what you do:

1) Microwave the bacon on a plate between 2 sheets of paper towel. I used turkey bacon and have found it will cook in about 2 – 4 minutes depending on how many slices.

2) Toast your English Muffin slices in the toaster.

3) For hollandaise sauce for 2 people, add 1 egg yolk to the blender along with a half tablespoon lemon juice and a half tablespoon warm water. Blend until frothy. Melt 1/4 cup (half a stick) of butter in a mug in the microwave. Slowly pour butter into yolk mixture with the blender on low. Then crank it up till its thick.

4) For a BIG time saver, cook your eggs in a non stick skillet over easy. (That’s where you flip the egg without breaking the yolk). Be careful not to over cook if you want the runny yolk!

5) Place an egg on one half of an English Muffin, top with slices of bacon and drizzle with hollandaise sauce. Optional: top with fresh cracked pepper, chopped green onions or chopped fresh parsley.

Brunch on Peeps!
