It’s me, again! Jen from Defining My Happy.
Summer is synonymous with campfires, s’mores and baseball games. I love all of these things, too, but the best part of Summer for me is brunch. It’s nice to host a mid-morning affair outside before the sun bears down too strong and everybody runs for cover. Plus, serve mimosas along with a yummy Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole. Need I say more?
I recently hosted a brunch for a few of my girlfriends and put together a simple, yet tasteful spread that kept the compliments coming long after the food was gone. The key for a good brunch is to keep the menu relatively light. Freshly sliced melon with peaches or pears contrast nicely in a beautiful serving bowl. If you’re serving strawberries, I recommend leaving them whole and placing them on a large decorative plate. If you’re hosting for a small group, I recommend one main dish with two side dishes.
Here’s how I hosted a brunch for 7 people:
I decided to make a sausage, egg and cheese casserole for my main dish. It was light, yet filling and received the most compliments.
1 Lb Country Mild Sausage
1 Pk Crescent Rolls
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1-2 Teaspoons Garlic Salt
1-2 Teaspoons Italian Seasoning
Sprinkle of Pepper
