Brunch in a pinch


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!



Smoked salmon

Goat Cheese (or any spreadable cheese)

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


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,

Marcella Rose
