Go Big On Brunch To make apple strudel mixture: Boil water; add raisins. Remove from heat and let steep until raisins are plump and reconstituted, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. In shallow pan over medium heat, add butter. Once butter melts and is bubbling, stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook about 3 minutes until sugar starts to dissolve. Add walnuts, apples and raisins. Cook apples until just tender when pierced with fork, about 4 minutes. Set aside to cool completely. To make batter: In large bowl, mix flours, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, beat eggs lightly and mix with buttermilk, oil and vanilla extract. Pour wet ingredients into dry, mixing as little as possible. Add apple strudel mixture and fold all ingredients together. Set aside. Heat nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat. Grease pan lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Once pan is hot, ladle about 1/4 cup batter per pancake taking care not to overcrowd pan. After 2-3 minutes, flip pancakes once. Serve pancakes warm with syrup. A Small Brunch Bite A full brunch menu calls for small bites on the side to complement the multitude of flavors brought on by a variety of brunch dishes. For a clever option that’s quick to make, these Mini Hash Brown Casseroles provide a morsel bursting with flavor to pair with just about any morning meal. Made with refrigerated Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, which are pre-shredded for a faster fridge to fork kitchen experience, you can make a batch of the tasty cups in less than an hour. Find more brunch recipes at simplypotatoes.com. Mini Hash Brown Casseroles Prep time: 10 minutes Total time: 30 minutes Servings: 24 1 package refrigerated Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns 1 pound Bob Evans Farms Original Sausage Roll 4 large eggs 1/2 cup milk 3 tablespoons butter, melted 1 cup ham, cubed 1 cup red pepper, diced 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese WISCONSIN COUNTRY LIFE

Add hash browns, butter, ham, red pepper, black pepper and cheese; mix. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 27-30 minutes. Serve warm. Sipping on Sweet and Spicy Take your brunch the extra mile with a twist on the traditional mid-morning beverage. By adding jalapeno and horseradish to this Watermelon Bloody Mary, you’ll have a spicy, tasty version of a traditional brunch drink. Watermelon Bloody Mary Yield: 4 cocktails 2 cups seedless watermelon, cubed 1 medium jalapeno pepper, stem removed, chopped 2 limes, juice only 6 ounces low-sodium tomato juice 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1 teaspoon fish sauce 1 teaspoon horseradish hot sauce, to taste 1/3 cup vodka lime wedges chili lime salt ice 4 bamboo skewers (6 inches long) watermelon wedges (optional) prosciutto (optional) cucumber slices (optional) jalapeno slices (optional) green olives (optional) In blender, blend watermelon cubes and jalapeno pepper until completely smooth.

Whether you’re new to hosting or simply looking for ideas to make Easter entertaining easier than ever, there are plenty of ways to save time and stress in the kitchen. Go with what you know. Trying out new recipes is fun, but it can also add stress when they don’t turn out like you expected. Stick to tried and true dishes you can prepare and serve with confidence and save the experimenting for another time. Take shortcuts. At the center of many Easter feasts is a ham that has been expertly cured and cooked to perfection. Even so, starting with a full-cooked ham is a shortcut that no one is likely to notice, especially if you heat it properly. For exceptional quality and a variety of flavor profile options to choose from, turn to America’s Original Butcher, Omaha Steaks. The meats are fully cooked then frozen before being delivered to your door for maximum convenience. Work ahead. Plan your menu to incorporate items you can make ahead of time so you’re under less pressure the day of your dinner. Even handling the prep work like slicing veggies the night before can buy back precious minutes,

Simple Holiday Hams Ideas for an easy Easter menu that way when guests begin arriving, you can step out of the kitchen and enjoy the day right along with them. Find more ideas to make hosting this year’s Easter meal easy at OmahaSteaks. com/buy/meals/easter. How to Heat a Frozen Ham Many frozen hams are fully cooked and can be served as soon as they’re properly thawed, which is an ideal solution for a casual brunch with mini sandwiches on the menu. However, if you’re serving an elegant holiday dinner, you’re more likely to prefer a warm centerpiece dish. A fully cooked ham is still a time-saving option; you’ll just need to allot time to heat it in the oven once it’s thawed. Start by thawing a fully cooked ham in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.

Another option for adding extra juicy flavor is a glaze, which can be as simple as dissolving three parts brown sugar into one part honey in a small saucepan. Or for a more elegant affair, consider a fruit-infused glaze to complement the savory pork. A Host of Hams If you always thought a ham is a ham is a ham, it’s time to think again. From the type of meat to the smoking preparation to specialized slicing that makes serving easy, there are plenty of options to consider from a supplier like Omaha Steaks when choosing the right ham.
