Muy Caliente: Mexican Brunch Mang

To inaugurate the New Year, I often come up with a reason to hostess an intimate get together with my fashionistah girlfriends.  The most inventive of which was a few years back, a Japanese themed soiree where girls arrived in kimonos, red lipstick, chopsticks in hair, some in wigs and we feasted on a meal of miso and sushi.  You know it’s a good party when there’s fake hair involved. 

Too lazy to make your own huevos, check out Easy Cafe at Queen West & Roncey.

Not content enough to be stylishly dressed and coiffed at all times, my university friends also have Martha Stewart tendencies preparing lavish gourmet meals, perfectly presented with a sweet parting gift of a bonbonierre to take home. Last year, we were all about mini everything – mini quiche, mini sliders, mini crudite, mini cupcakes, mini, mini, mini…etc.  Inspired by the rock n’ roll, motorcycle, spanish leaning breakfast menu at Easy Cafe (1645 Queen Street West), I proposed a Mexican brunch theme.  We had a hearty feast of guacamole with nachos, spinache and red leaf salad with feta, refried beans, spicy roasted potatoes, breakfast burritos garnished with salsa, cheddar, sour cream and chives.  We finished with a bold Mexican coffee topped with a dollop of whip cream and a platter of desserts from La Casa Dolce (732 Browns Line).

Fancy breakfast burrito. Ay! ay! ay!

Here is a quick and simple recipe for a breakfast burrito (serves 6):

  1. Dice 1 red onion, 1 red pepper, 1 tomatoe, 1 cup mushrooms, grate 1 cup cheddar
  2. Saute vegetables on medium heat.
  3. Add 6 eggs and cheddar.  Season with greek seasoning, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Add in a side of sausage for you carnivores.
  5. Serve on a warm soft tortilla and let friends dress their own with salsa, sour cream, chives and more grated cheddar.

Los huevos están muy ricos!  (Translation:  The eggs are very delicious!)  Then we all took a siesta.
