I love brunch. I mean, who doesn’t? It’s the best of both worlds, sleeping in and having breakfast, or waking up in the morning and eating lunch! But unless you can find a place that takes reservations you are almost assuredly going to wait for a table. So lately I have discovered something even better than meeting friends out for brunch, having people over for brunch. I have a few favorite recipes, something for every situation from an egg casserole that you prepare the day before, to my father-inlaw’s “make you cry it’s so delicious, biscuits and gravy.” But for my readers that want a quick, but elegant, simple, but impressive, option: I give you the salmon breakfast board.
What I love about this breakfast is you can have it camping with a few bloody mary’s, or on a picnic, or at home in your kitchen. It’s ready in a pinch and still makes an impressive spread. Best of all there is no cooking. Just arrange the ingredients on a platter or cutting board and you are good to go!
Goat Cheese (or any spreadable cheese)
Red onion thinly sliced (if too spicy, soak in cold water for a few minutes)
Mini rye toasts (or quartered toast, bagels, crackers)
Arrange and serve!
The bonus is this also makes a great appetizer before dinner or hors d’oeuvres for a cocktail party!
