Basic Brunch Favorites
The week between Christmas and New Year’s is a special time of togetherness, reflection, and hopefully a little extra lounging. A time when the kitchen is always busy and there’s always extra-big smiles and extra-full bellies. This year, we’re excited to share some of our farmers’ favorite brunch recipes to help you keep everyone well fed on those cool winter days.
We know that when you put this Hash Brown Casserole on the table, the only complaints you’ll get are why there isn’t more. It’s an easy recipe to put together, and ideal for feeding your hungry guests a hearty and healthy breakfast, featuring our plain Greek Yogurt and our Lite50 Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Another quick and easy favorite recipe – our Perfect Cheesy Mexican Scrambled Eggs (shown above.)
This Mushroom Frittata is another delicious egg bake and makes for a nice meatless option. Like the casserole above, it’s packed with the bold taste of Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar, though feel free to sub in Cabot Pepper Jack if your guests prefer a spicy kick.
Whether you’re already a popover fan or you have yet to be won over, you’ll want to try this recipe – it’s a keeper! These Pepper Jack & Ham Popovers are the perfect appetizer or side for any meal.
Breakfast tacos are a playful way to enjoy eggs and get creative with fillings and toppings. Our farmers love these Potato, Cheddar, and Chorizo Breakfast Tacos. The salty, tangy chorizo goes perfectly with Cabot Sharp Cheddar. Get inventive with your toppings, and then get festive by building a breakfast taco bar for your guests. It’s a fun way to bring everyone together. We like our breakfast tacos topped with scallions, avocado, cilantro, salsa, Cabot Sour Cream, and a squeeze of lime—but have fun with it and find your own taco bliss. Oh, and don’t forget to keep the hot sauce on standby.
Hosting a small group or planning for a potluck? This Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole is the perfect meal! Using only four ingredients, this dish is super simple to prepare but packs a ton of flavor.
If you’re looking for a delicious, easy brunch recipe, look no further than our Egg Cups. They’re a low-carb, protein-backed meal that’s fun to eat and, even better, they can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. Enjoy our farmers’ classic egg cups made with Seriously Sharp Cheddar and crispy bacon—or try some of our fun variations like Mozzarella and Pepper Egg Cups or Fiery Jack and Chorizo Tortilla Egg Cups.
Finally, what would brunch be without a little something sweet?
This Banana Pecan Oatmeal Skillet Cake is a classic Southern dessert that’s remarkably tasty and very easy-to-make. It features plenty of deliciously rich pecans, maple syrup, Greek yogurt and fresh bananas too. Pair it with coffee to bring out the flavors of the pecans for a truly enjoyable dining experience.
This Maple Sour Cream Coffee Cake features the comforting sweetness of pure maple sugar and the creamy richness of Cabot Butter and Sour Cream. Its comforting smell will fill the house, and it’s simply heaven alongside a cup of coffee or cocoa—or all by itself.
If you’d like to switch up a staple breakfast recipe, try making our Cottage Cheese Pancakes. The pancakes actually call for a number of uniquely delicious ingredients, such as flaxseed meal and cottage cheese. We’re positive that you’ll love them!
If you’re on the hunt for another sweet treat to put on the table, these quick Maple-Cinnamon Rolls are a guaranteed favorite. The glaze is sweetened with powdered sugar and features Cabot Cream Cheese and Greek Yogurt.
Looking for a go-to lemon pound cake? This lovely Lemon-Yogurt Pound Cake from the Richardson Family Farm is the only lemon pound cake recipe you’ll need. Their recipe is featured in the Cabot Creamery Cookbook, and we think it’s especially delicious when enjoyed with a cup of tea.
We hope these brunch favorites bring joy to your family, and to your table, during this celebratory season. Enjoy, and happy holidays from our family to yours.
