Brunch in a pinch


Image

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!

Ingredients

Smoked salmon

Goat Cheese (or any spreadable cheese)

Red onion thinly sliced (if too spicy, soak in cold water for a few minutes)

Capers

Lemon wedges

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!

Happy Brunching,
