Welcome back to my kitchen!
May is the month we celebrate moms, and in our house, that means brunch. Jack and I get up early Mother’s Day morning to cook a meal fit for a queen — because that’s just what Heather is to us. It’s a great way to show how much we love and appreciate her.
But cooking a delicious brunch doesn’t have to be complicated. Pair these easy recipes with a simple fruit salad, and you’ve got Mother’s Day covered!
Headlining our brunch is Baked Ham and Pimento Cheese Cups. These are so good and easy. I love how the salty ham gets a bit crispy around the edges; then you’ve got gooey cheese, too. They’re just delicious and are easy enough for a busy weekday morning but fancy-looking enough for a special occasion such as this. In fact, whenever I make these for company, I’m taken aback by how impressed folks are.
Now, who doesn’t love a good biscuit? Chocolate Chip Biscuits are the perfect way to turn classic buttermilk biscuits into a little something sweet. I simply took my Easy Buttermilk Biscuit recipe, added a little sugar, some chocolate chips and a sweet heavy cream drizzle. These are great for breakfast or a special treat any time of day.
Last but certainly not least is a recipe from fellow Alabama Farmers Federation member Debbie Hinkle of Calhoun County. She is sharing her delicious recipe for Candied Bacon (originally published in the March 2014 Neighbors). I do hope you’ve tried this decadent treat by now, but if you haven’t, consider this your sign it is time. And you’ll definitely want to try out Debbie’s recipe!
I hope the months ahead bring more memorable moments with those you love and delicious endings to each day.
