Easter Brunch Ideas

“Happy Easter” My Friends from www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com! I hope everyone has an AMAZING day full of food, family, & friends! I love having a big brunch on weekends and holidays. So, I went back to my southern roots and comfort food this morning by making “Easter Brunch” with “Shrimp & Grits w/ Bacon, Jalapeno, & Green Onion” and “Grand Marnier Challah French Toast w/ Orange Zest & Fresh Raspberries!”

Shrimp & Grits

Shrimp & Grits

  • 1lb of Shrimp 
  • Plain Grits
  •  1/2 Cup of Cheddar Cheese 
  • 2 tbsp of Butter
  • Milk 
  • Water 
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/2lb of Thick Cut Bacon 
  • 1 Jalapeno Diced
  • Scallions

Make your grits according to the package but split your ratios of milk and water. Add salt to taste and cheddar cheese. I buy the thick cut bacon and stack it 4 pieces high and cut into cubes then saute in a pan until browned and crispy. Save a little of the bacon grease to saute your shrimp in with diced jalapeno and salt & pepper. Then put your cheese grits in a bowl add your bacon, shrimp & jalapeno, & diced scallions. WA-LA!

Grand Marnier Egg Mixture

In a bowl beat your eggs. Then add your almond milk, orange zest, and grand marnier. Slice your challah bread and place in a bowl and pour over your egg mixture. Allow to soak for 5-10 minutes then brown on a low heat so that it has time to cook all the way through without burning.

White Truffle Guacamole Stuffed Eggs

Happy Easter Weekend Peeps from www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com kitchen to YOURS! icon smile White Truffle Guacamole Stuffed Eggs I don’t think any of us understand the “Egg” & “Easter” correlation but here is my contribution to Easter Eggs… My “White Truffle Guacamole Stuffed Eggs!” The flavors are terrific together but then again what doesn’t taste good with truffle oil? I’m truffle obsessed!

Funny Story: We use to go dine at a restaurant called Casa D’Angelo in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl at least once a week. If your headed to that area check it out because it has some of the most AMAZING Italian food! So, every time the bill arrived it would be anywhere between $400-$600 dollars (I know that may sound obnoxious but we LOVE good food, service, & atmosphere) and granite we always ordered a bottle of wine or champagne to boot. The server would come by the table and announce that black truffles were in season and would we like any fresh shaved truffle on any of our dishes? OF COURSE, I reply loudly! We will take it on all of them! I would have it added to the appetizers, pork shank, & risotto or anything that it made sense on top of until one night I’m wondering why the bill is always so expensive for two people. I was turning risotto into $100 dish because all of the black truffle I would request. LOL! I guess you can say I have expensive taste, sophisticated taste buds, or that I’m in the wrong business and need to get into the truffle business. I can say I slowed my role on ordering extra shaved black truffle on all of my dishes!
