brunch ideas

  • Consider serving at least one lean, lower-fat breakfast meat along with decadent bacon and sausage. Choose Canadian bacon, ham, turkey bacon, turkey sausage or soy sausage-like patties and links.
  • Freshly peeled and deveined shrimp also makes a simple, high-protein choice.
  • Slices of smoked salmon are such an easy way to offer heart-healthy omega-3 fats at brunch. Simply open the package and arrange slices on a plate or tray.

Recipe: These Homemade Pork Sausage Patties are simple to make and taste much better than store-bought varieties.

  1. I have been looking for jicama, here in Indpls. Where have you found it? I live on the southside, but often drive north! (Am also looking for scallions!)
    Thanks, Linda

  2. Linda,

    According to our sources, your best bet is the Mexican or international grocery stores, particularly the markets on the west side/Lafayette mall area. You can also find it at Meijer or Whole Foods in season (summer).
