What's better than having a few friends over for a mid-morning buffet of breakfast treats? Nothing that I can think of. On Saturday, Alex and I had our favorite couple over for a spread of our favorite things: Blueberry & Lemon Crumb Cake, Parmesan Frittata, Cinnamon Brown Sugar Bacon and Crispy Breakfast Potatoes. The menu may sound complicated, but truth be told I woke up at 8:30 and had everything hot and on the table by 9:15. The guys had a golf game to get to, so I was on a tight schedule.
I started by making the Blueberry & Lemon Crumb Cake the day before, which was perfectly convenient. I even made a couple of muffins from the batter for Alex and my roommate Amanda to snack on. The morning of, I started by making the additions for the frittata (caramelized onions and garlic). Then, I put the caramelized onions and garlic into my egg mixture along with some grated parm and chopped parsley, and poured that into an oven-proof pan and placed it into the oven. I then prepped the bacon with its sweet topping and threw it into the oven to bake away along with the frittata. Finally, I cooked the potatoes on the stove top while my other treats were baking. Just make sure you put some coffee into your coffee pot somewhere along the line, and you've got a recipe for the most fabulous brunch ever. Stay tuned for all of the recipes, I'll be posting them throughout the week.
