A Quick and Easy Brunch ~


I made a great little brunch for a close friend and boy was it easy and delicious.  It gave us plenty of time to sit and chat, which is what we both wanted to do.  So I did this easy and quick menu.

Fresh Strawberry and Kiwi Salad

dressing:
1 small shallot, minced
1 teaspoon of honey
1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons of good olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Whisk vinegar, honey and olive oil.  Add shallot and whisk again.  Add salt and pepper, set aside.

salad:
1 qt. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 kiwi fruit, washed and sliced

Put strawberries and kiwi in a low sided bowl.  Right before serving, add dressing.  This presentation is beautiful and the salad itself is delicious.

 
 
 
I decided to make a frittata with ingredients I had in the house.
 
 
Ingredients:
 
6 large eggs, room temperature
1 tablespoon cream
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese
1 roma tomato, seeded, diced and patted dry
4 green onions, white and light green parts, sliced
8 oz. of cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
 
Whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper.  Set aside.
 
 
In a 9 to 10 inch non-stick skillet, heat oil and then butter, on
medium heat.  Add mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add green onion, stir and cook for 2 minutes longer.
 
Turn on broiler.
 
 
Turn heat to medium low and add eggs.  Gently stir eggs around a bit, just for a minute.  Add diced tomatoes and sprinkle cheese.  Turn burner off and place skillet under the broiler.  Watch carefully until top of frittata is turning light golden brown, about 2 minutes.
 
Remove frittata from oven.  Let sit for another two minutes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Use a spatula to loosen sides and slide frittata to plate.  Garnish with sliced green scallion.  Cut into wedges to serve.
 
 
 
Serve with bagels, coffee and champagne.
 
Delicious and easy, what a nice combination ~

Looks great!! Mary I wish I could invest in you as a caterer/small food shop diva!! Your food looks fab. I make a crustless quiche every week and I think I might try this cooking technique next week.
