Black Pepper & Parmesan French Toast with Italian Sausage Patties
Here's a brand new take on French toast: Make it savory!
Break it Down
In a large bowl, combine the pork, wine, EVOO, fennel seeds, garlic, onion, sage, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper. Form into 8 small, thin patties.
Add the patties to the griddle and cook until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, remaining 1 tsp. pepper, the cheese and nutmeg. Coat the bread in the egg mixture.
Cook the French toast, turning once, until golden and cooked through, 5 minutes.
Rachel Hash & Fried Eggs
"A 'Rachel' sandwich (no relation!) is a Reuben made with turkey or pastrami instead of corned beef. Here, I've used the same flavors to make a hash," Rachael says.
Break it Down
In a medium bowl, mix the sour cream, ketchup and relish.
In a heavy skillet, heat 1 tbsp. oil over medium-high. Melt the butter in the oil, then add the potatoes and cook until browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the onion; stir 2 to 3 minutes. Add the turkey and cook until lightly browned at the edges, 2 to 3 minutes more.
Stir in the sauerkraut; cook to heat through. Sprinkle with the Gruyere, then tent with foil to melt the cheese.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat a little oil over medium. Add the eggs (1 or 2 per serving) and cook, flipping once, to desired doneness, 3 to 7 minutes.
Divide the hash among plates. Drizzle with the Russian dressing; top with the eggs.
Deviled Ham, Your Way
This savory spread is a brunch fave. Serve it with toast points, or slather it on toast, then top with steamed asparagus and sliced Gruyere or sliced tomato and cheddar. Bake in a 375 degree oven until the cheese is golden and top with an over-easy egg.
Chicken Bagel Sandwiches with Bacon-Walnut Cream Cheese
This sandwich is sweet and savory, and will satisfy any Sunday morning craving.
Break it Down
Arrange the bacon on a broiler pan; bake until crisp, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool, then chop.
In a medium bowl, mix the bacon, Neufchatel, nuts, scallions and nutmeg.
In a heavy skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tbsp. EVOO, one turn of the pan. Add the chicken; cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
In a medium bowl, whisk the lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, honey and the remaining 3 tbsp. EVOO.
BLT Toast Points with Welsh Rarebit
Welsh Rarebit is a traditional British dish, made with a warm, gooey cheese sauce that's poured over slices of toast.
Apple, Cheddar & Mushroom Monte Cristos
You may have had a Monte Cristo with ham and cheese, but wait until you try it with apples and mushrooms, too!
Break it Down
Cook the mushrooms until brown, 4 minutes. Add the thyme; season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, cook the apples until tender, 5 minutes; season with the nutmeg.
Add the Calvados; then, using a long kitchen match or a barbecue lighter, ignite the alcohol.
In a small bowl, mix the créme fraiche and mustard.
In the skillets, melt the remaining 2 tbsp. butter over medium and cook the sandwiches until golden, adding more butter as needed, about 2 minutes per side.
Cut in half and divide among plates.
Everything Cream Cheese BLTs on Everything Bagels
"This recipe has been a family favorite for years. Serve these sandwiches with a Bloody Mary and the Sunday New York Times -- even if you don't have time to read it until Monday!" Rachael says.
