Tomorrow, we’re hosting a little gathering to celebrate the arrival of summer! We’re calling it a Brunch to BBQ! We’ll start with a brunch, then move into the yard for some playtime and beverages. When we get hungry again, we’ll fire up the grill. So, today I’ve mainly been preparing for the festivities.
For the brunch, I’ll be making Eggs Benedict, which is probably my all time favorite brunch dish. It features a toasted English muffin, topped with a slice of Canadian bacon, a poached egg, and a spoonful of decadent hollandaise sauce. I’ve put together a series of photo guides that will help you put this delicious dish together.
How to Poach an Egg will show you step by step how to easily poach the perfect egg without any special equipment.
How to Clarify Butter will walk you through a simple process for clarifying butter, which you will need for the hollandaise sauce.
Finally, How to Make a Hollandaise Sauce will take you through the traditional procedure for making this super star of French sauces.
We’ll also be having bagels with homemade Scallion Cream Cheese and Olive Cream Cheese. My sister is bringing her famous Breakfast Pizza and a friend is bringing a breakfast casserole. There will be mimosas (of course) and even some mango bellinis.
Later in the day, we’ll fire up the grill for some sausages, which we’ll serve with roasted peppers and onions. We’ll have corn on the cob and a pasta salad courtesy of my sis!
It’s shaping up to be a great day! Check out the photo guides and stay tuned for pictures and recipes from tomorrow’s Brunch to BBQ summertime celebration!
