Sunday Brunch

When it comes to entertaining what can really be easier than brunch? Set out some coffee, juice, mugs and glasses and you practically already have a party!

Add some freshly cut fruit, a coffee cake, breakfast bread, an egg dish and a light lunch item and you are done. We stuck to this basic plan last weekend when hosting 10 out of town guests and it could not have been easier!

We served two frittatas, one smoked salmon and dill and one with potatoes and basil, both courtesy of Ina Garten; homemade banana bread, store bought coffee cake, fresh fruit and watermelon gazpacho. By far the most complimented dish was the watermelon gazpacho, from Tyler Florence, so I'll include a link to the recipe here. (links to both cookbooks can be found at the bottom of the post) The gazpacho is an excellent combination of sweet and savory; it's light and refreshing and could easily be the star of any summer lunch or appetizer at a BBQ. I just can't recommend it enough!

Unfortunately the frittatas were not out of the oven when I snuck in a shot of the table. You'll just have to imagine them where the trivets are!
