I don't know about you... but I love a good brunch... so many varieties and ways to serve delicious foods... many can be made almost entirely ahead... just a wonderful way to get good friends and food together.
So for Derby Day... why not make it Southern? Here are some ideas to get you started...
The Early Times Mint Julep – The Official Mint Julep of the Kentucky Derby
Asparagus and Crab Quiche
Cheddar and Chive Scrambled Eggs in a Puff Pastry Shell with Garlicy Cream Sauce
Bacon Cheese Fritatta
Peach Upside-Down Muffins
Baked Ham with Rum and Coke Glaze or Jack Daniel's Glazed Ham
Baked Garlic Cheese Grits
Slightly Sweet Parslied Carrots
Corn Fritters.. serve these with honey...
Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon and Shallot Dressing
Delicious Geechee Pecan Pie... and while not Derby Pie... it's still wonderful!... add a dab of whipped cream and you have yourself a little slice of heaven!
The Beaumont Inn's Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce... All I can say is WOW!
And of course...
Coffee and Tea
