Weekend Brunch 11.12.10 November 12, 2010 Entertaining 1493 This week, we have the ultimate brunch from Tyler Florence. For those of you with sweet tooths, drool a little bit over this French Toast: Upside-Down Apple French Toast 1 cup egg beaters/all whites 1 cup skim milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 loaf challah bread, cut into 1 inch-thick slices 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cut into small cubes 1 cup light brown sugar, plus more for sprinkling, divided 4 Granny Smith apples 1/4 cup fat free half and half cream 1/2 cup pecans 1/2 cup dried cranberries Confectioners’ sugar, garnish, optional Doesn’t that sound absolutely divine? He pairs it with an equally impressive omelet. Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Omelet 4 eggs plus 1 cup egg beaters/ all whites 1/4 cup fat free half and half cream 2 tablespoon unsalted butter 1/3 pound smoked salmon, torn into large piece 1 cup light or fat free cream cheese, room temperature 4 green onions, finely chopped, garnish Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper If you’re not a smoked salmon fan, try this recipe with lean ham- that would be delicious as well! With a brunch like this, you’ll also want to offer some lighter options like yogurt or fresh fruit to round out the meal. Enjoy!
