Ideas for Your Easter Brunch Every Bunny Will Love

Oh friends!  We have been buuuuusy this week.  It is amazing that we even have time to get this post written and sent off.  Soccer has been ruling our lives this week with games rearranged because of storms, games in the wind, driving back and forth!  But it is Easter weekend and we have several items on The Blind Pig that would be perfect for your holiday breakfast or brunch.

Day DrinkingWe shared this drink with you last week. It is made with Carpano Bianco and grapefruit soda.  It is low in alcohol content and would be a great addition to an Easter brunch.

Cucumber Gin SpritzThis cocktail is also light and would be a refreshing addition to any morning gathering.

Gold Medal Coffee

Of course this would be perfect for the coffee drinkers in your entourage.

Mateo’s Bloody MaryThis easy to make Bloody Mary compliments nicely with bacon and egg dishes.

Rosa SpritzAny spritz is a winner for brunch in our book.

Christmas Morning BreadAlthough we showed you this bread at Christmas, it would make a delicious choice for Easter, as well.

Kerrygold Cinnamon RollsThese rolls are a little time consuming, but well worth the effort.

Kerrygold French ToastYummo!  Enough said.

Wow WafflesWe shared these delightful fluffy waffles with you a few posts back.  Remember, you can also use this recipe for pancakes!

We wish you and your family the best this Easter.  We have some other great posts to share with you in the next few weeks!

In the Morning, I’m Making Waffles

Weekends are great for many things, sleeping in, spending time with friends and family, catching up on household tasks, but the best thing about weekends is you have time to indulge in breakfast foods. At The Blind Pig household, breakfast dishes are some of our favorite foods, but we seldom have the luxury of time to make them and enjoy them. This week we are sharing a yummy waffle recipe that will be sure to become one of your family favs.

Blind Piglets #2 and #3 enjoying a waffle in the Netherlands with our friend, Jens.

Did you know that in Belgium, waffles are not served for breakfast, but are served as a dessert or as a sweet treat?  We discovered this fact a few years back when The Blind Pig family visited Europe.  It was on Blind Piglet #3’s bucket list to eat a Belgian Waffle in Belgium.   Much to our surprise we learned that it is served with fruit or ice cream and enjoyed as a sweet treat. We rode through Belgium via train, so Piglet #3 had to enjoy his waffle in the Netherlands instead.

Our family loves pancakes and waffles, so typically we make them with Bisquick, but this recipe makes the waffles so flavorful, light and fluffy. We may never use Bisquick again.  To make our WOW Waffles you will need cake flour (We like Swan’s.), baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, buttermilk, cream of tartar, melted butter, vanilla and Kerrygold Irish Cream for a zip of flavor.

To start whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Next separate the egg yolks and whites.  To the yolks add the buttermilk and whisk.  Add cream of tartar to the egg whites and mix on high with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  (This is what helps to make the waffles so light and fluffy.)

Stirring gently with a fork, combine the egg yolk mixture with the dry ingredients.  Then  stir in vanilla, melted butter, and Kerrygold.  The batter will be lumpy at this point.

Fold in the airy egg white mixture gently. Make sure you don’t over mix.

Spray your waffle maker with cooking spray and preheat.  Add about 1/2 cup of batter to the waffle maker and bake until waffles are golden and crisp.

If you are making your waffles for a brunch or special breakfast, keep the waffles warm on a cookie tray in the oven on low heat.

These delicious waffles are light, airy and have just a hint of a chocolate Kerrygold flavor.  Top the waffles with butter and your favorite syrup.  You can also add fresh fruit.  For an extra special treat, top the waffles with Kerrygold Syrup that we shared with you in our Kerrygold French Toast post or with some yummy Kerrygold Chocolate Sauce.  So many options!

This recipe can also be used for pancakes, which we are going to try next time, because our waffle maker is not the best at making our waffles crispy.  We will keep you posted on how that works!  Try out these yummy waffles for your Sunday morning breakfast or your next holiday brunch.  We would love to hear what you think!
