Gather family and friends round the table this week for a leisurely brunch inspired by a few of our holiday favorites: All-natural breakfast sausages, rich, silky crème fraîche and sweet German stollen bread. Paired with additional holiday party provisions such as balsamic-glazed pickled Cipollini onions, sweet garlic confit and fresh herb compound butter, this festive box is rounded out by such seasonal produce as Brussels sprouts, leeks and Beech mushrooms. So, from our home to yours—happy holidays!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Baked Cinnamon-Raisin French Toast
This homey recipe from The Pioneer Woman can easily be done a day ahead and chilled until ready to bake.
Mushroom, Leek & Fontina Frittata
Perhaps best served at room temperature, this luscious frittata from Bon Appetit is a fantastic do-ahead entrée.
Fingerling Potato ‘Homefries’
These creamy, rustic potatoes are flecked with fresh parsley and red pepper flakes for heat.
Balsamic-Glazed Root Vegetables
An herb-packed marinade infuses fresh flavor into winter staples like parsnips and squash.
Roasted Winter Squash
Buttery and incredibly delicious, winter squash is wonderful roasted with just a touch of brown sugar.
This dish can’t be beat for presentation, served whole and topped with olive oil and sea salt.
Honey-Poached Pears with Crème Fraîche
This lovely dessert from Bon Appetit uses honey to draw out the mellow sweetness of pears.
