Holiday Brunch

Celebrate the season by inviting friends and family to enjoy a festive brunch in your home. The aroma of fresh-brewed coffee and just-baked coffee cake will entice everyone into the kitchen. And don’t hesitate to ask your guests to lend a hand—this will only add to the fun and convivial spirit. Some can prepare the spritzers and slice the grapefruit, while others cook the shirred eggs and sausage.

At least one day in advance:

The morning of the breakfast:
