OVERNIGHT SAUSAGE AND EGG BAKE

//

I was fortunate to cater a Bridal Breakfast and I thought an Overnight Sausage and Egg Bake or a Strata would be perfect for a party of 23 people.

I also baked a Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake and a Blueberry Coffee Crumb Cake.

Everyone that tried the Sausage and Egg Bake made sure to tell me how delicious it was. I doubled the recipe, let it refrigerate over night and then popped it in the oven so it would be warm when serving to guests.

BLUEBERRY COBBLER

//

This is an easy dessert that you can make for guests right before they arrive and they will be coming back for more. Some people call it a buckle, some people call it a cobbler. I was raised eating cobbler’s. Boysenberry cobbler was our favorite, growing up in sunny California. I think I have fallen in love! I just love desserts that are simple with not a lot of ingredients!

IMG_4004-001

But it’s really hard to find Boysenberries in the Northeast. So I am making Blueberry Cobbler, which is unbelievably delicious. You will want to lick your plate, it’s that good. I might have done that…no one was looking, so no witnesses!

A group of blogger friends and I are doing a series of Saying Goodbye to Summer Fruits roundup! No No No! I don’t want to say goodbye! Especially since I don’t have to, since hubs bought 10 lbs of blueberries…tee hee!

BROWN SUGAR STREUSEL COFFEE CAKE

IMG_3854-001

The menu for the Bridal Breakfast was Blueberry Crumb Coffee Cake, Brown Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake, Strata’s, Fruit Salad, Juices and Coffee.

This is a wonderful coffee cake, the recipe is from my friend Debi from Recipes for My Boys. When I saw the cake I knew that it would be perfect for the bridal breakfast, such a delicious moist coffee cake.

It was so fun to see the photographer take so many pictures of my cakes and strata’s. I can’t wait to see how the pictures came out.

The Bride and Groom had a stellar weekend in Maine for their wedding. I wish them many years full of laughter and joy in their marriage.
