I know it was 2 weekends ago, but mother figure was otherwise occupied so we celebrated this weekend.
The menu included your typical brunch foods like eggs, potatoes, berries, and champagne.
EVOO + Balsamic + since our balsamic finished I added in some Red Wine Vinegar + 1/2 juice of lemon + a pinch of sugar + Black Pepper
Garlic Smashed Potatoes
1-2 bags of red baby potatoes
1 bag of Trader Joe’s peeled garlic chopped
EVOO + Salt + Pepper
Boil the Potatoes for a little bit till soft, drain and smash slightly – top with EVOO, garlic, salt and pepper
Bake for about 35-45 minutes (till crispy on top)
Garnish with Parsley
Baked Eggs in Bread
This was a win, and I’m so happy it turned out to be a win rather than not a win.
Red Onion chopped
1 bag Trader Joe’s peeled garlic chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream/milk/whatever you want
1 baguette of choice (take the top off and innards out- you can cut them up in pieces and toast them – makes for a great pregame snack before brunch)
Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
In a pan, saute garlic, onion and spinach slightly (I added in a jalapeno too)
In a separate bowl – crack all the eggs, add in milk/cream and whisk for a bit – season with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and some chili powder
Mix in sauteed vegetables into eggs
Pour egg mixture into bread bowl – top with cheese
Bake for 60-80 minutes (make sure that egg is COOKED)
Garnish with parsley
