Tim Laird: Brunch Recipes

Blood Mary Bar

For a fun Bloody Mary bar, set out a pitcher of your favorite Bloody Mary mix, my favorite is Bloody Kentucky (available at:  What is different about this mix is it tastes great vodka but it was developed to be enjoyed with bourbon too.  Also set out any or all of the following garnishes and let your guests build their own cocktail.


Steak Sauce

Finely grated Parmesan or blue cheese

Celery salt and celery stalk

Pickled mushrooms

Pickled asparagus spears

Pickled green beans

Pickled green tomatoes

Olives stuffed with garlic or blue cheese

Cooked and peeled shrimp

Hot sauce

Jalapeño peppers

Pepper flakes

Balsamic vinegar

Lemon & lime wedges


Tim Laird: Brunch Recipes

Roasted Red Pepper Frittata

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped

2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped

2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

12 eggs, beaten

½ cup sliced roasted red peppers, seeded

3/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, add the eggs, salt, pepper, parsley, chives and basil and beat well.  In an oven-proof non-stick skillet, add the oil, heat to medium-high heat.  Pour the egg mixture into the hot skillet, reduce the heat to medium and cook about 4 minutes.  Add the roasted red peppers and goat cheese to the top of the frittata.   Put in the oven and cook until the center of the frittata is set, about 12 -15 minutes.  Let cool and slide onto a serving platter. Slice into wedges and serve.

Serves 10-12
