Brunch Ideas

I love brunch!!!

I did this last year for Mason's birthday but thought it would work well for Christmas too.

Pictured below is:

Belgium waffles cut into quarters and placed in a plastic cup (bottom filled with maple syrup). You can make the waffles the day before and stick them in the fridge to save time. If you don't have a huge table where your guests will be all sitting this is a great grab-n-go idea. I have eaten eggnog french toast (substitute your milk for eggnog) every Christmas morning for the last 25 years. That would work in cups too - just cut the bread diagonally or into strips before sticking them in the cups.

Red potatoes dressed in EVOO, S&P and fresh rosemary. Roasted.

Strawberries and blackberries on a stick and stuck in a plastic cup (bottom filled with your fav fruit dip. This is just homemade whip cream). I was really surprised at how the kids reacted to the berry cups - they couldn't wait to pick one out!

Bacon and biscuits and gravy are also pictured.

I bought this green Styrofoam cone at Joann's and stuck doughnut holes all over it. It was getting devoured so quickly that I couldn't get a picture of it when it was completely filled. The kids kept asking, can we eat it or is it just for decoration??

 Although its not pictured we had plenty of drinks at the brunch: punch for the kids (softened rainbow sherbert, pineapple juice, 50/50), mimosas and of course damn good coffee!!!
