Entertaining over the Holidays? Consider Breakfast!

On the spur of the moment we invited our very good friends Kevin and Candice over for Sunday morning breakfast.

Since they are unable to join us here for Thanksgiving dinner, I wanted to make breakfast more special that just bacon and eggs.  So I created a Breakfast Burrito Bar.

Having everyone make their own burritos took a lot of pressure off having to assemble them all myself and the island looked so festive with all the “fixins” displayed.

I could hear my mother saying, “You have so many nice things, dear, you should use them.”  I put everything including all the toppings in pretty bowls.  OK, I left the Sriracha in the bottle!

Inviting guests for breakfast or brunch is much more casual than dinner, and if you’re on a budget, it’s certainly less expensive.  It’s also a nice alternative when you want to entertain over the holidays. 

Next breakfast for guests I will definitely make Spinach Benedict from Salad Joy.
