Dear Apron,I am hosting a Christmas brunch this year. I'm going to do a ham and some sort of an egg casserole, but I need some ideas for side dishes. Have any yummy ideas for me!?
Hi Kristen,That sounds lovely! I always love a nice prosciutto wrapped asparagus as an elegant side dish for brunch or dinner. Another great option might be a sweeter side dish, such as a "stacker" with a small breakfast bread such as miniature biscuits, scones or toaste with fruit jam and a small slice of brie or goat cheese.Hope that helps!Apron
I love holiday entertaining. This year I'm on a mission to find a collection of make-ahead breakfast dishes for Christmas morning. I always find myself in the kitchen instead of opening presents and that has got to stop. Thus far I have a healthy French toast casserole and a not-so-healthy overnight rise cinnamon roll. I'll be on the lookout for others, so if you come across some I'd love to know about them.
Oh what a great idea! I couldn't agree more, it's so easy to miss out on the fun stuff because you're having too much fun in the kitchen. Every year we make a casserole the night before and reheat that contains croutons, eggs and milk topped with cheese and crumbled bacon. Easy and tasty :)
Share a duck recipe! We're not a duck-eating family -- I'm going to spring it on them this year.
Can't say I've ever prepared duck either. I'll put it on the list :)
oh my, everything in that picture looks so good and put-together!
Slashfood had a little list of the 5 things that should never be brought to a party (hummus? I thought that was kind of a staple) http://www.slashfood.com/2009/12/10/worst-party-dishes/Worth a look.from Gigabitingwww.gigabiting.com
My focus when I enterain is to keep my dishes simple and elegant. I know that as soon as my food preparation gets complicated, it is no longer fun.I love using large platters to display fruits, meats, cheeses, olives, vegetables and salads.
Sorry, I had a typo...I meant entertain.
I like your blog. Look at my idea.May be you enjoy it..I will follow your blog..just in case you follow me. A mutual thing.
Obviously bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo are a holiday must. Thank you Central Market tapas class for teaching us that recipe! Always a crowd favorite.
Tis the season for FONDUE!!!
I'm trying these Bacon Corn Muffins with Savory Cream Cheese Frosting for the holidays this year and I think they are going to be an instant favorite. Also, I made these Cranberry Bars for my family last year and my Mom made the request to bring them again!Here are the links and I can't wait to see what you come up with!http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/brian-boitano/bacon-corn-muffins-with-savory-cream-cheese-frosting-recipe/index.htmlhttp://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1853985
