Tips & Techniques Christmas Holiday Brunch
Holiday Brunch
A weekend brunch is a wonderful way to entertain friends during the holidays. Brunch is well suited to family-style gatherings because the day (usually Saturday or Sunday) and the hour (typically late morning) make it easy for guests of all ages to join in the fun. Our menu features dishes that will appeal to kids and adults alike. And best of all, you can do much of the work in advance.

Mini doughnuts dipped in chocolate and decorated with colorful sprinkles will be a big hit with young diners. For the grown-ups, offer almond scones with tangy tangerine curd for spreading. The main course is a strata, a savory breakfast casserole enhanced with cipollini onions, arugula and Asiago cheese. To round out the meal, serve apple and sausage patties, plus mugs of hot cocoa and coffee topped with spiced whipped cream.
