If I’ve mentioned it before, it’s been quite a while but every Sunday I prepare brunch for my wife and me. For guests, too, if we have them which we do on rare occasions.
My brunch usually consists of some sort of egg dish—scrambled eggs (my wife doesn’t like eggs that stare back at her), omelet, frittata, savory bread pudding, what have you—and sort sort of breakfast pastry, usually biscuits. I’ve made muffins, sweet rolls, bread rolls, and scones but I usually make biscuits. I’ve got it down to quite a science. I’ve post my recipe for biscuits before and I generally stick pretty close to that. The more frequently you make biscuits, the better your biscuits become.
Lately we’ve also been having bacon for a reason that makes sense to us but probably wouldn’t to anybody else. We both like bacon but in general I rarely prepare it. However, for the last several months Tally has preferred her food with a little bacon grease on it so I buy when it’s on sale, prepare it for our Sunday brunch, and save the grease for her.
One of these days I’ll need to write a little diatribe on bacon. I find it practically impossible to get good bacon any more. What is the world coming to?
We drink tea with our brunch. My wife doesn’t care for coffee and I’ve found it makes me jittery. This morning I’m preparing Scottish Breakfast from Tea Source. If you’re a tea drinker, it’s a great place to get good tea at a reasonable price.
