Big Bad Brunch

 Today at the farmers market we were each choosing things we liked. Then we got home hungry! In between breakfast 🍳 & lunch 🍴 I set out for Brunch πŸ˜‹ adapting recipes from a few places for allergies and tailoring each dish! So here’s what we had. 

Omelette (Scott) Baked eggs (Julie) turkey bacon, rice grits, chicken sausage apple, potato hash, gluten free toast, bagels, watermelon πŸ‰ and watermelon cooler. Yes we are stuffed and most of us are napping 😴.

Combine stock and milk of your choice with rice grits and bring to a boil. Then simmer for ten minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat when soft. Add ghee, cheese, garlic, salt & pepper. Makes 4 cups. I put a led on to keep it warm while I finished everything else.
