Brunch ideas?

What are some things you would have on a brunch table if you were entertaining? I wasn't sure where to put this, so here it is. lol

sounds a lot like what I had on Sunday when the family went out for my mom's bday.... you can do almost anything.

Here is a recipe, like finger food. I bet you could even do it for regular appetizers too, not just for brunch.

Cornmeal Sausage Bites:

1 1/3 cups buttermilk baking mix
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 cup milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp oil
12 precooked sausage links
shredded cheese of choice (I like cheddar the best)
egg wash

Combine baking mix and cornmeal. Stir together milk, eggs and oil; pour all at once into cornmeal mixture and stir just until blended.

Pour 1/4 cup batter onto lightly greased griddle, spreading to make 4-inch circles. Cook until tops are bubbly; turn and cook other sides... keep warm in a 200° oven.

Brown sausages on all sides; keep warm. Turn oven up to 350°. Place one sausage in center of each pancake and top with shredded cheese.. brush alittle egg wash on one end of pancake and roll to close...secure with toothpicks and put on cookie sheet. Bake for about 15 min or until cheese is melted. Remove toothpicks and serve with honey-mustard dipping sauce or sour cream.

To make the honey mustard sauce, just combine equal parts of dijon mustard and honey.

yum bucky at the honeydew wrapped in prosciutto!

You could have a plate of chuckwagon bacon too. That's just combining flour, salt and pepper and dredging each bacon slice in the mixture and frying in about 2 tbsp oil until crisp.

Potato Basil Frittata
Barefoot Contessa - Ina Garten

Ingredients
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, divided
2 cups peeled and 1/2-inch diced boiling potatoes (4 potatoes)
8 extra-large eggs
15 ounces ricotta cheese
3/4 pound Gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder

Directions
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a 10-inch ovenproof omelet pan over medium-low heat. Add the potatoes and fry them until cooked through, turning often, about 10 to 15 minutes. Melt the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter in a small dish in the microwave.

Meanwhile, whisk the eggs, then stir in the ricotta, Gruyere, melted butter, salt, pepper, and basil. Sprinkle on the flour and baking powder and stir into the egg mixture.

Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes and place the pan in the center of the oven. Bake the frittata until it is browned and puffed, 50 minutes to 1 hour. It will be rounded and firm in the middle and a knife inserted in the frittata should come out clean. Serve hot.
