Many people hear the word brunch and think eggs and breakfast items. That’s great. You need some of this and some of that. Maybe omelettes or pancakes or sweet rolls.

I like to serve a variety of breakfast and lunch for brunch.

That’s where sandwiches can perk it up!  Yumbos are a great start. Yumbos are simple hot ham and cheese minis. I like the sweet, slightly sour touch a bread and butter pickle adds. A squirt of honey mustard complements ham and cheese so well!

There you have it. No recipe. Only a yummy Yumbo Slider!

One of my favorite soups is Cheddar Broccoli. Soup like any dish made with cheese needs the cheese to melt evenly and hold its flavor. The wrong cheese can spoil a good dish.
I used Cabot Alpine Cheddar from their Legacy collection.

From the website: A subtle Swiss and Italian Alpine blend with a slight grana texture similar to Parmesan. At room temperature, this lactose-free cheese will surprise and delight even the most jaded cheese aficionados with its unique flavor.
This cheddar is white in color so it’s easy to blend into any recipe. Leave some of the broccoli crisp tender for texture.

Of course you could spice up the soup with Cabot’s Hot Habernaro!

Apple Lekvar Sweet Roll

Sweet Rolls stuffed with fruit filling add a bit of oooh to a brunch table. I like to unroll the bun and eat it bite by bite. Yes, I’m not ashamed to say that I play with my food!
If you are a fan of prunes and like apple butter then you get the idea behind lekvar. This spread is often used as filling for thumbprint cookies and kiffles. I like it on toast, too.
Of course it complements tart, sweet apples like these Lady Alice® apples from Rainier Fruit.
Lady Alice Apples

Here is what makes Lady Alice® apples special from Rainier Fruit’s website:
• Lady Alice® apples have a distinct pink stripe that washes over a vibrant banana yellow background, visually distinguishing it from other varieties.
• The Lady Alice® apple is decidedly sweet with a delicate infusion of tartness and has a crisp, juicy crunch that snaps cleanly with each bite.
• The Lady Alice® is an excellent all-purpose apple that is most popular for its snack-appeal, yet is perfectly suited to any occasion. It makes an attractive focal point on a fruit platter or a refreshing addition to salads and sides. It even holds its texture during cooking or baking.
Learn more about Rainier Fruit and their organic line of apples, blueberries, pears and cherries on their website.

Additionally, I could not have made these delicious sweet rolls without these sponsors.

Since 1917, Dixie Crystals® has been the South’s choice for high-quality sugar and sweeteners. Our pure cane sugar products are all natural, non-GMO and provide consistently delicious results.
