On the weekend my daughter had her birthday sleep over and so my wife made apple butter stuffed sour dough french toast and I did some maple bacon on the griddle for the girls. While munching on the remnants, I came to the conclusion that I absolutely love brunch! I need a twelve step program.

My favourites include:
Huevos Rancheros
Bacon, Eggs (over easy), Hash Browns and Toast
Scrambled eggs with Sauteed onions and Thyme with Back Bacon.

Any other brunch lovers out there?

I don't mind a well done brunch buffet, even with the glittering silver tubs of food. Some are well done, others are not. When I attend one, however, my favorite items are the iced shellfish, not the baked salmon filets, etc. A nice carving station with leg of lamb is always a treat. The brunch cocktail is also a nice touch.

For home-made brunch, I'm a simpleton. Pancakes and sausage.

Eek Not poached? Scrambled eggs are fine, but Benedict always screams for a nice, jiggly, runny poached egg! The crab, however, I can get on board with. Wink
And who here has an alcoholic libation with their brunch? I'm not talking about weekday breakfasts before work, but rather, a true restaurant-served brunch on a holiday or on vacation. Afterall, mother's day is right around the corner.

In our house, my wife will go for the mimosa, but I go straight for the Myers and O.J.
I like mackeral cakes with pepper jelly and buscuits(sp) and pinot noir. The combination of the savory fish and the sweet hot jelly makes for an interesting brunch item. Also, champagne and oyster based appetizers and grilled shrimp on skewers and or crab cakes and sauvignon blanc. The mackeral cakes are more early brunch
for me and is a southern thing.

A properly constructed Bloody Mary works for me.

Which, of course, brings up the question: What constitutes a properly constructed Bloody Mary? Can one use the bloody Mary mix, or does it have to be tomato juice? What about V-8? With or without salt? Tall skinny glass, or a short stout "on the rocks tumbler". And lastly, is the absence of a celery stick a deal breaker?
