Brunching for Two: The Ultimate Breakfast Meal




My hubby is a big breakfast person. Though I admittedly am not as a big fan like him, I will never turn down his Bourbon bacon, and scallion scrambled eggs. Bacon and eggs must be my favorite breakfast dish that he makes. I fell in love with his scrambled eggs the first time he created them. It was quite different and so tasty. Adding scallions and cherry tomatoes change the texture of the eggs. We are going to show you how to make the best Saturday/Sunday Brunch for two. With so much going on in the world and given a lot of our breakfast spot closed due to COVID, we are spending more time in the kitchen coming up with new food ideas.  One of our favorite outings on the weekend used to be finding unique Brunch spots. Now that there is a lot of restricting and you must make reservation jut to have a meal at your local diner, we feel more comfortable having Brunch in our dining room's comfort. You, too, can make the best of staying home and making your Brunch. I am giving you the details on how to be prepared and love what you are cooking. If you couple like Dwayne and me and you are just cooking for two people, these recipes can all be cook under 30 minutes. You will swear that you out for breakfast at a fancy restaurant, and if you have a large family that you want to impress, you can double or triple the recipe measurement that I give you. I hope you enjoy this meal as much as Dwayne and me. Now less get started.

  • Bourbon (we use Jim Bean)

Best Baileys French Toast Recipe

The picture-perfect French Toast needs to be crunchy and golden brown on the outside while at the same time showing a moist and light center. Make sure to soak your bread in the egg mixture for long enough, so each slice soaks up as much liquid as possible. By doing will ensure the interior of your Toast is moist rather than dry.



Ingredients

1 Cup Heavy Cream

½ Cup Baileys

¼ Teaspoon Brown Sugar

1Egg

¼ Cup Butter

Equipment

Whisk

Casserole dish

Mixing bowl

Flipper

Measuring cup

Non-stick frying pan

Oven

Baking sheet

Instructions



Preheat oven to 200F.

Whisk the egg, Cream and Baileys and Brown Sugar in a casserole dish or bowl.



Dip thick slices of bread into Baileys egg mixture, being sure to coat evenly on both sides.

Preheat non-stick pan over medium heat and add a dab of butter. Once butter is melted add 2 slices of Baileys French toast at a time. Let each side of French Toast fry for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.



Store French Toast in preheated oven on a baking sheet to keep warm until ready to serve.

Serve French Toast with berries or your favorite fresh fruit and drizzle of maple syrup.

Cheesy Scramble Eggs


Ingredients

4 large eggs

1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

black pepper, for serving

fresh chopped herbs,

4-8 Cherry Tomatoes

½ cup of 4 Blended Cheese


Instructions

In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs,  salt until the mixture is uniform in color and texture, foamy and light, without any separate streaks of yolk or whites.

Melt the butter in a nonstick pan over medium heat, until the butter coats the whole pot and start to foam.Add the eggs to the center of the pan and immediately reduce the heat too medium/low.

Wait for the edges to start to set barely. Now, use a spatula, gently push the eggs from one end of the pan to the other. Continue this process, pausing in between swipes to allow the uncooked egg to settle on the warm pan and cook, gently pushing the liquid to form the curds. Now add your tomatoes, scallion, and cheese.
