Autumn Brunch Recipes

Rise and shine, it’s breakfast time! Gather round the table this weekend for a hearty and satisfying brunch starring our farm-fresh eggs, Skagit River Ranch’s chorizo sausage and sweet, nutty pancakes crafted from a locally-made whole-grain mix. Complemented by challah bread and a nicely balanced pinot noir, this week’s box also includes Akane apples, sweet peppers, fingerling potatoes and fragrant herbs—so pour yourself a cup of joe and get cookin’.

Here are some recipe ideas for the week:

Emmer Pancake & Waffle Mix
Plan on 1 cup of prepared mix yielding six 4-inch pancakes, or two 8-inch waffles.

Maple-Spiced Apples
These fragrant apples are wonderful served on top of pancakes or waffles.

Chorizo Scramble
Try serving this spicy scramble with a dollop of cool crème fraîche on top.

Roasted Potatoes, Peppers & Onions
These easy roasted veggies are a great brunch side dish. (Or, try topping a hearty serving with a poached egg for a satisfying entrée.)

Lemon Broccolini
This light and fresh side is accented by tart lemon juice and fresh-cracked pepper.

Sweet Onion Confit
These buttery-sweet onions are fantastic mixed into scrambled eggs!
