Bodega Brunch

frittata-3What to do when your son texts last minute he’s free for brunch on a sleety cold Sunday? And there’s no food in the house? Go to the corner bodega. Potatoes. Chicken andouille sausage. Cheddar cheese. Red pepper. Red and yellow onions. Eggs. Okay. Maybe Starbucks across the street for fresh squeezed OJ.

Skillet Frittata & Fried Potatoes:

Peel and quarter 3 large russet potatoes. Par-boil until fork just slips in. Drain and dry. In one large non-stick skillet heat olive oil and brown 1/2 large yellow onion, sliced. Cut potatoes into 1″ chunks and add to the onions. Brown on high heat, tossing. Then press down and let crisp on one side. After several minutes, turn and brown to crisp on the other side. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme and paprika. Re-heat when frittata is done.

In a cast iron large skillet, heat olive oil and a pat of butter. Brown chopped red onion, red bell pepper; slices of andouille sausage. In a large bowl fold together 6-8 eggs and 3/4 cup plain yogurt, cracked black pepper. Pour over browned onions, peppers, sausage. Shred cheddar cheese on top. Let eggs set on the bottom over medium heat. Meanwhile put oven on high broil. Place skillet under broiler until puffy and brown on top. Serve in wedges with fried potatoes and fresh squeezed OJ alone or in a Champagne Mimosa.

PostStuffington Brunch

Post Stuffington Frittata– In an omelette pan, brown up a little leftover sausage mushroom stuffing in butter. Scramble 4 eggs with milk and pour over the stuffing and cook until set on the bottom. Pop under a low broiler to finish cooking through, brown and crispy on top. Serve with salsa, tabasco, and English muffins with Strawberry jam. Yeah, it’s a bread holiday.

SuperBowl Omelette

2013 Version for 2. Go Niners!

Chop 1/4 lb. smoked salmon and 1/2 small red onion. Beat 4 eggs with 1/4 cup non-fat plain yogurt or sour cream. In an oval fry pan, melt butter to coat the bottom. Add the onion, lightly brown, then add chopped salmon. I don’t like as much salmon as Dr.Husband, so heavier on one side of the pan than the other. Pour in the beaten eggs and let set on the bottom.

Pop under a low broiler to finish the top until golden brown. Add another dollop of yogurt or sour cream and top with Kaepernick capers.

HuevosNuevos

A spicy brunch to warm you up on these dank days of June. Just for you. In a small skillet, melt a little butter and crack two farm fresh eggs, or one egg plus one egg white. Break the yolk(s). When set turn over and shred a little cheddar, jack, or your favorite mild cheese. Pop under the broiler until cheese melts. Serve topped with a chunky fresh salsa, or chopped fresh tomato and diced jalapeños. Que picante y sabroso.

Morning Muffin

This is a pedestrian play on the French morning bun. It’s just for you once a week, when you can’t get to the nearest bakery. Tear an English muffin and place nook-and- cranny-side up on a little pie pan. Put butter on top, then sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mix over the butter. Pop under the broiler until sugar and edges of muffins are browned. If you want to be more authentic, squeeze a little juice of an orange on top, but no need. Yum.
