Five Brunchmas Dishes!


I had high hopes to make a really special new Brunchmas dish this week, but time got the best of me. I was too busy doing last minute shopping, wrapping, decorating, baking, and cooking up non-blog dishes.

So, here is a recap of some of the dishes I think would be Brunchmas-worthy!

Ottolenghi's Shakshuka It certainly fits the bill as far as representing all the Christmas colors, right? The red and green and front and center and the dish is healthy, light, fresh, and delicious. Plus, it's gorgeous and can be served family style or individual.

Giada's Breakfast Tart and Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Syrup I made this breakfast tart years ago, but I still remember it fondly. Pancetta, mascarpone, Gruyere, and green onions really make a flavorful taste sensation! Plus, the recipe is kinda perfection! Giada's Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Syrup was a wonderful accompaniment and let's face it....fresh fruit isn't what it's meant to be during the winter months so the honey-lime syrup really brings it all to life!

 Ina's Tri-Berry Oven Pancakes No one really wants to stand by the stove flipping pancakes on Christmas day, so Oven Pancakes or Dutch babies are perfect for Brunchmas! Ina Garten's recipe is the perfect choice for Christmas Day! Serve family-style or individual and have a nice selection of fruits.
Herbed-Baked Eggs These Herbed-Baked Eggs are hands down the easiest way to do any brunch, while also making something that feels special. All you need is a baking dish and some butter and cream. Crack your eggs into the dish and then top with various herbs, cheese, and garlic. These could be personalized to suit all tastes and flavor profiles! Love them!
Winter Citrus Tart w/ Rosemary Whipped Cream  Look no further if you need a special wintery brunch dessert because Curtis Stone's Winter Citrus Tart with Rosemary Whipped Cream is perfect for the holidays! I mean oranges are all the rage at Christmastime, right? They are juicy and delicious and in season! Plus, we decorate with them, we make simmer pots with them and we make desserts and cocktails with them! This is THE PERFECT and easy dessert for your Brunchmas.
Plus, it's worth mentioning that this glorious dessert takes only a mere handful of ingredients: puff pastry, orange marmalade, oranges, cream, and rosemary! It is the epitome of easy, beautiful, and delicious! Everyone will be so impressed!

I hope everyone celebrating had a wonderful and Merry Christmas!
