I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for P.A.N. Cornmeal. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Brunch is probably my favorite meal of the week. I wish I had time to host a brunch group every Sunday. In fact, I have a great idea that I need to discuss with my friends. We can each host a brunch every month. Instead of calling it book club or a play date, we can call it brunch club. It would help me sharpen my cooking skills and help all of us on our culinary exploration.
My brunch menu is filled with yummy favorites with a little bit of a twist. I started the meal with a Filet’s cut into 2 thinner pieces. Then I grilled them and served with a Basil Chimcurri Sauce made from my Basil growing in my herb garden.
With the steak, I served Jalapeño Cornbread. The Jalapeños are also from my garden and P.A.N. Cornmeal. It was quick and easy to grab things from the garden and thing like P.A.N. Cornmeal and Flour that are always in my pantry. P.A.N. was such a great fit for this recipe as it is gluten-free and is pre-cooked. It is always a pleasure to work with. Gotta love when you can grab fresh veggies from your backyard.
Then, I served an Egg Quiche with tomatoes and spinach with Sake Mimosas with strawberry garnish.
