Is there anything better than brunch? It usually means a slow morning followed by savory breakfast foods and platters of fresh fruit without an email inbox or to-do list in sight. Host an elegant brunch at home with these three healthy options.
Butternut squash, turkey bacon, kale, and goat cheese frittata
5 slices turkey bacon, diced
1 shallot, sliced
4 cups (loosely packed) raw kale, hard stems removed
2 cups cooked and cubed butternut squash
¾ teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
4 oz goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the turkey bacon in a cold, heavy bottomed, oven safe pan (cast iron is ideal), and bring up to medium heat. Render the bacon until it's just beginning to crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, until it’s translucent and just starting to brown. Add the kale to the pan with a splash of water, and toss it around for a few minutes, then put a lid on the pan and let it steam for 2-3 minutes, or until tender. Remove the lid and add the cooked squash, then toss until it's warmed through.
Crack the eggs into a medium bowl, add the salt and pepper, and whisk until thoroughly combined. Pour the eggs over the vegetables and use a rubber spatula to spread them out evenly. Crumble the goat cheese over the top, then place the pan in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until puffed up and golden on the outside. The inside should be totally set. If it's still runny, place back in the oven for a few minutes more.
Allow the frittata to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Spring asparagus mushroom frittata
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped
4 ounces sliced mushrooms of choice
½ pound baby asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely minced
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
Salt and black pepper
8 large eggs
1/4 cup heavy cream
4 ounces crumbled goat's cheese
½ cup parmesan cheese
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Preheat your broiler.
In a medium to large-sized skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the asparagus, Italian seasoning, thyme, crushed red pepper and a dash of salt and black pepper. Cook for an addition 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Stir in the goat's cheese, 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese and the veggie mixture.
Wipe the pan out with a dry paper towel, and then spray generously with a non-stick spray and heat over medium. Pour the egg mixture into the pan, and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are set but the middle is still runny. Slide a rubber spatula around the edge a couple of times during these 8-10 minutes to prevent sticking and to allow the uncooked mixture to flow underneath. Remove from heat and sprinkle on the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
Place the frittata under the broiler and broil until set and golden brown, about 3-4 minutes depending on how hot your broiler gets. Remove from heat, garnish with fresh parsley, cut into 8 equal-sized wedges and serve immediately!
Blueberry overnight oats
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup almond milk
1-2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
Additional Toppings (optional)
Combine oats, milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract, salt and maple syrup in a large bowl. Stir together until well combined.
Fold in fresh blueberries.
Transfer to two 8-ounce mason jars, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
When ready, top with desired toppings and enjoy.
Fresh fruit platter
The perfect addition to your savory food options is a beautiful plate of fresh fruit. Add whole strawberries, a bowl of blueberries, sliced melons, grapes or any of your favorite fruits for an elegant – and healthy – option for your guests.
