Liz from Not Everything I Make is Pretty is here to share her go-to brunch menu for special occasions. She sends me pictures of this meal every Mother's and Father's day and I'm always so jealous.
Hey Michaela, here's my favorite brunch! I'd like to think it's a little fancy, it's definitely colorful and could be dressed up pretty easily. I last made it for Easter. But with Mother's & Father's Day coming up, it would be perfect for breakfast in bed or any weekend you just feel like brunch.
Slow Roasted Tomatoes with Bagels & Lox
Slow Roasted Tomatoes
Slice 8 or more Tomatoes thickly
Rub with Olive Oil and Salt
Bake at 275 for 3-5 Hours
(These can be made the day before and kept in a little extra olive oil for up to a week.)
Bagels & Lox
4 Bagels, Halved
1 Package Cream Cheese
2 Avocados, Sliced
1/2 Red Onion, Thinly Sliced
1 Package Lox
1 Package Prosciutto
2-4 Slow Roasted Tomatoes
Smear cream cheese to taste on each half of bagel. Equally divide remaning ingredients to create sandwich.
Honied Pears & Goat Cheese
4 Pears, Sliced
1/4 Cup Honey, Warmed
4 oz. Goat Cheese, Crumbled
Place one pear in each of four dishes. Drizzle the honey over the pears and then top with goat cheese.
Serve the finished duo together for an easy, delicious and.... well, almost pretty brunch that's sure to make mom's day!
