I am really looking forward to Spring this year. Next week we will have several days that will have temperatures in the 70’s. I think I am more excited about Spring this year because I am not working in the afternoons and l love the idea of spending pretty spring weather outside. As Easter approaches I start thinking of brunch. One of my favorite meals is when Mr. D and I prepare brunch for my Mother’s Day celebration and lot’s of times we do the same on Father’s Day. I will not be preparing Easter brunch this year but I do plan to have brunch for us sometime in the month of April.
The other day I glanced over at my cookbook shelf and saw my Pirate House Cookbook from Savannah, Georgia. I realized I had not shared many of their recipes with you recently. I have such fond memories of eating at the Pirate House and their cookbook is one of my absolute favorites. I love the way they prepare so many Southern traditional foods so simply but so deliciously. As I browsed through the cookbook I saw the recipes I am sharing with you today.
The first recipe would be a great brunch recipe if you are having a large family celebration for Easter. You can prepare the casserole the night before and refrigerate it. As it is baking in the oven, you can prepare the other dishes for your brunch. I think this sounds delicious with the sausage and eggs along with the swiss cheese. The only other thing you would need to prepare is fruit and if you are making a southern brunch you need some grits. Keep reading.
I also love the recipes below for either a grits souffle or cheese grits. I have made a cheese souffle before but I love to think of challenging myself again and giving the grits souffle a try. Cheese and grits are such a wonderful creamy combination.
So as Spring approaches I think of the beautiful city of Savannah and the wonderful people and places that make that city so special. Thanks for stopping by.
