Brown Sugar Cream

Brown Sugar Cream is the perfect thing for fruit dipping!Brown Sugar Cream, perfect for fruit dipping!

The first Saturday of December for the past “I don’t know how many years” I have hosted a holiday breakfast for my first line team members who work with me in my homebased business.

I love this yearly event.

It is an opportunity for me to welcome them to my home, spoil and pamper them with a yummy breakfast and a small gift.  It is always a wonderful time and we have so much fun together – eating, laughing and sharing.

The menu for this event doesn’t vary much from year to year.  I believe when you find something that works – stick with it.  And thanks to my “Things That Work” Notebook I can remember from year to year what I have done.

I thought I’d share the menu with you today – many of the recipes have appeared on my blog over the last year but there are a couple of new ones.  I usually experiment with one or two new recipes each year and then keep the rest tried and true.  A good rule of thumb for any party!

Things that never change –

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffeecake – This is my all time favorite coffeecake.  It can be made the day before and refrigerated – just bring to room temperature before serving.  This year I used strawberry jam instead of raspberry!

Chili Cheese Souffle – a yummy and easy egg dish with a bit of a kick thanks to the green chilies

Sugared Bacon – I think this may be the best part of my Holiday Breakfast.  I have even had several guests tell me this bacon is why they come every year.  I am trying not to be offended by that!  This disappeared so fast I didn’t even get a picture of it.  Just think gooey and yummy!

Spiced Apple Cider – this is a must at any holiday event I host!

Baked Grapefruit – no recipe – just slice grapefruit in half, you may need to take a bit off the bottom so the grapefruit will sit flat.  Place on cookie sheet, cover top of sliced grapefruit with a tablespoon or more of brown sugar  Bake at 350 until warm and the sugar is melted.  Top with a cherry!

New this year….

French Breakfast Puffs – a recipe I found over at Pioneer Woman.  I have made them a couple of times now.  They are yummy but are definitely at their best hot out of the oven!

Strawberries and Brown Sugar Cream – this is also yummy with blueberries.

Brie covered in melted brown sugar and pecans is delicious. Brown Sugar Brie will be the hit of any party.

    I thought I would never, ever be tempted to cheat on my own coffee cake and strata recipes … until now. What’s a girl to do after seeing these delectable recipes??
