Crepes! You could fill them with traditional eggs or get creative with a seafood filling or chicken filling.

I love poached eggs over polenta with sauteed mushrooms.

Apple fritters with a generous dusting of 10x

Rice pudding

Shirred eggs

Croque Madame or Monsieur

Monte Cristo sandwiches

Some nice biscuits or croissiants would be nice also buy croissants in stead of trying to making them(croissants spelled wrong Im sure) at a good bakery.And really good jams/preserves and honey.

My favorite brunch items are:

Monte Cristo sandwiches
Cream cheese blintzes with homemade strawberry compote
Traditional Italian fritatta with diced potatoes, Italian sausage, and mozzarella cheese
Fresh fruit salad
Tropical fresh fruit salad
Beverages, besides the mimosas:
Bloody Marys
My trademarked brunch drink, called My Lady's Kiss (it's sweet, bubbly, and slightly intoxicating). Similar to a mimosa, only it's made with Kern's strawberry nectar and Ballatore Rosso Spumanti, and garnished with a thick skice of fresh strawberry.

Middie posted this recipe that is really good.


Bacon Tomato Frittata

8 eggs, or a carton of egg substitute
1/4 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (I used the garlic and herb)
1/4 teaspoon salt (I left it out though since the bacon is salty enough)
1 Tablespoon oil (I used canola)
4 sliced green onions
2 large plum tomatoes sliced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled (I like a lot of bacon)
2 Tablespoons sour cream (reduced fat is okay to use too), as a garnish

Mix together eggs, seasoning, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté around 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium-low and poor in the egg mixture. Cook 6-9 minutes gently lifting the cooked edges of the egg so that uncooked egg can flow to the bottom of the pan.

Set your oven on broil and top the frittata with the tomatoes, cheese, and bacon. Broil around 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Serve each piece with sour cream.


This is my favorite coffee cake recipe. It is quick, easy, and you can make it the night before.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake


½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons shortening
1 small egg
¼ cup milk.
¾ cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoons salt
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon


Mix together thoroughly: sugar, shortening, and egg. Stir in milk. Sift and stir in flour, baking powder, and salt. Spread batter in greased and floured layer cake pan. Make topping by mixing together brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle with topping. Bake until wooden pick come out clean. Bake at 375º for 20 minutes.

Should there be coffee, in that cake?
I think coffee and cinnamon sounds like a delicious combination, for a cake.
I will make this cake, for Easter, with coffee, even if coffee is not in the recipe.

Coffee cakes are called coffee cakes because they are traditionally eaten for breakfast when coffee is served. Since I'm not a baker I wouldn't dare try to give you a suggestion! lol I would ask a baker if part of the milk could be subbed for a strong coffee/espresso.

Thanks Kitchenelf

Does anyone else have a comment, to make?
Would coffee and cinnamon be a good cake flavour?
