BACON & POTATO LATKES WITH FRESH FENNEL & CITRUS SLAW

| BACON, BRUNCH, EASTER, POTATOES, SALAD, SIDE

lenasktichen_bacon latkes_twoUPEveryone should adopt a latke into their recipe rotation. (Because what’s not to love about fried potato pancakes?) The trick, whether you’re making them for Easter, brunch with friends or otherwise, is to get them super crispy. In mine I added crispy bacon inside for a little guilty pleasure, but with a healthy twist by topping them with a fresh fennel slaw mixed with citrus to brighten the color on the plate and to cut the fat of the bacon. This is a simple recipe to adapt to add your favorite things like zucchini, sweet potato, apples, carrot and or other veggies you might like more, the possibilities are endless. But I do hope you try my version out. (more…)

I decided to put together two of my favorite things and make this eggs benedict on a croissant instead, topped with quick pickled red onions, capers, fresh greens. Easter and Mothers Day is around the corner and I thought that this would make a perfect Easter or Mother’s Day Brunch with family and friends for you to try out. (more…)
