I had my parents and siblings over for an early Christmas celebration and it was the first time I was hosting them at our home. Our family loves breakfast so I made a big brunch for us.
I started with a fruit salad. It was the first time I used pomegranate seeds and I just picked a few fruits for color. I started with Pomegranate seeds and Strawberries for some red color and Kiwi and Honeydew Melon for some green. The colors were bright and festive and the flavors paired very well. It was refreshing and delicious!
We love eggs so I whipped about 8-12 eggs with a splash of milk to get it fluffy with whatever I had in the fridge which may have been: baby spinach, green onion, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, mushrooms and some cherry tomatoes, salt, pepper and Tony Chachere’s Creole ‘It’s Spicy’ allspice . Topped with cheese and in the oven at 400 for about an hour and it was a nice dish for our breakfast.
I also tried for the first time some banana stuffed french toast from Food Network’s “Down Home with the Neeley’s”. It was a fun way to make french toast and was very filling. I didn’t change too much and I would make it again for a special occasion breakfast.
Of course we also had a side of bacon from the local corner store/deli. If you try anything – try the fruit salad, it has my mouth watering again! Happy Holidays!
