Breakfast Comforts!

Feather-light pancakes dripping with maple syrup; fluffy cinnamon rolls still warm from the oven; farm-fresh eggs with crisp peppered bacon and golden hash browns; these mouthwatering icons of the breakfast table are meant for slow-paced mornings, when you can relax and enjoy your meal over a strong cup of coffee and unhurried conversation.

Celebrate the morning meal as a time to renew and replenish with satisfying, tasty food and good company. A comforting breakfast at home can be a quiet, intimate meal with your significant other, or a lively brunch with friends and family. It can also be spent alone, still in your robe and slippers, savoring a favorite dish, bite by bite, while slowly flipping through the newspaper.

In our busy world, mornings can become and exercise in rushing, and all too often breakfast is a meal that is grabbed on the run. But it is important to set aside some time to truly enjoy the first hours of the day with a meal that makes you feel good.

Some chef’s are destined to change the landscape of the food world and Yotam Ottolenghi is one of them. His food is creative, colorful, and ingredient driven. If you’re trying to impress a brunch crowd, your family or a special someone, this is the recipe to try. Ottolenghi’s Red Pepper and Baked Egg Galettes! Yes, the galettes look fancy, but that’s the magic… they come together in a few easy steps. You’ll roast red pepper and onion wedges and then pile them on little squares of puff pastry that have been spread with a little sour cream, creme fraiche, or goat cheese. If you prep your veggies ahead of time they’ll be quick and easy to make. The wonderful thing about these baked egg galettes is that anybody can do them 🙂 The combo is a winner!

All of us here at Guastello’s Village Market hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Holiday Season!
