Christmas Morning Brunch

Well, Christmas morning has come and gone. We are all hanging lounging around until we have to head up to Boonton for our gathering of Nordic hordes at my sister-in-laws house. We had the usually exchange of presents this morning. Rob is playing his new Wii music game and I am blogging on a new lap desk that Matt bought me. After exchanging presents Grandma and Grandpa Meyer along with Natalie and here Dad came over for Christmas brunch.

Here is the Menu for our Christmas Brunch:

Overnight Pecan Sticky Buns
Fruit Salad
Hash Browned Potatoes
Baked Egg Cups

I used a recipe from Good Housekeeping for the Overnight Pecan Sticky Buns. I did the whole recipe in my Kitchen Aid mixer instead of hand kneading as the recipe suggests. It was the first time I had used this recipe and it was a winner.

Here is the recipe for the baked egg cups:

1 dozen slices of good quality white bread
1 stick of butter
1 dozen eggs
salt pepper

Cut the crusts off the bread and flatten each slice with a rolling pin. Butter both sides the bread. Gather together the four corners and place in a muffin tin. Bake at 375 degrees until toasty. Fill each toast cup with an egg, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 degrees until egg is set, about 13 to 15 minutes.

Those egg cups look so cool. I do brunch for friends every Thanksgiving morning before we go watch our Football team get crushed. I'll have to try these next time.

Happy New Year.
