Brunch Game Strong

Brunch is my favorite meal, but normally at home, not a restaurant. I’m cheap, I have dietary restrictions, and sometimes socialization before noon is a struggle. Here are three of my favorite at home brunches, plus, my favorite Bloody Mary recipe. More to come!

Heirloom Tomato, Sopressata, Ricotta, and Poached Eggs

Ingredients and Directions
  • 1 heirloom tomato
  • 4-5 slices of sopressata (prosciutto, bacon, or salami would work too)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon zest
  • fresh thyme

While the eggs are poaching (Low Stress Poached Eggs – With A Glass Of Wine) slice your tomato and plate with sopressata and ricotta. Once the eggs are done, place on top of the ricotta and sprinkle the entire dish with lemon zest and thyme.

Ricotta with Blueberries and Honey

Ingredients and Directions
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (local is better!)
  • lemon zest
  • pinch of salt

In a bowl lightly whip the ricotta and a pinch of salt until smooth. Top with fresh blueberries, drizzle with honey, and finish with lemon zest.

Fried Eggs and Guacamole

Ingredients and Directions
  • 1 large avocado
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 6-8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeno

Mash the avocado and add lemon juice, mayo, and salt and pepper to your liking. Combine until smooth. Fry two eggs to your liking. Add fresh cherry tomatoes and slices of jalapeno on top.

Maruka’s Favorite Bloody Mary

  • 1 1/2 shots Tito’s vodka
  • 1/2 cup Revolution Bloody Mary Mix
  • 1/2 cup V8
