Let’s Do Brunch! Eggs-ceptionally Easy Brunch Recipes!


new-england-rustic-tablescape1It’s that time of year again and the holidays usually mean spending time with friends and loved ones. Many of us may have overnight guests and one question always seems to arise: “What am I going to feed them?” Well, the Picky Peaches have tried-and-true recipes, that have been a part of our families’ breakfast or brunch for many years, and we’ve decided to share them with you! If you have a house full, then making both recipes will definitely be a treat! Both are super easy to assemble the night before you plan to enjoy them. In the morning, pop them in the oven while you sit with your guests and enjoy coffee or your favorite morning beverage. Make sure you check back with us to let us know how much your family enjoyed these down home, southern flavors. We look forward to hearing from you!

Love and Peaches, from our kitchen to yours . . . .

1 teaspoon dry mustard15232313_10211113815266145_4294603120774453300_n

Brown sausage (or bacon) and drain. Let cool. Break bread into little pieces. Shred one 8-ounce block of mild or medium cheddar cheese (Don’t use pre-shredded, it’s too dry).15317991_10211113813346097_7802599384285737544_n

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients.15203172_10211113811386048_746393901740247702_n Pour into greased 9×13 casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.15203234_10211113809466000_3743353412673116307_n

The next morning, bake uncovered at 350º for 45 minutes to 1 hour. It’s done when it’s dark brown around the edges and puffy in the center. You want to bake it long enough so the eggs are not runny.

Serves 6-8 depending on your serving size.15284800_1468758673154081_923758460741584278_n
