Trader Joe’s brunch rescue! Use store-bought ingredients to put together a quick party.
On Christmas Eve, I stopped by Coriann’s for brunch. She put out such an elegant, effortless Trader Joe’s brunch spread.
Along with a bunch of dips, veggies, crackers, and cheese from TJ’s, there was this lentil bruschetta – basically lentils cooked with a jar of bruschetta…
…served on sliced french bread.
Breakfast enchiladas – stuff the tortillas with whatever you want (these had chicken + veggies). Then add a mixture of 6 eggs, 2 cups cream, 1 Tablespoon flour, salt, and pepper.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes – serve with guacamole, fresh cut tomatoes, sour cream, and salsa.
Prepared salads from Lemonade – always a hit. One with quinoa and apples, the other is their broccoli with feta cheese.
A new way to eat melon! Cut up cantaloupe, fresh basil, add pepper.
And the jaw dropper – this Mac and Cheese, which is basically a boxed Trader Joe’s package (from the freezer). Plus crispy bacon and jar of jalapeños. I swear, it was almost better than the one I ate the night before at Tam O’ Shanter’s!
Now that I know how simple that all was, I want to host a brunch.
