Too bad I didn't add "Practice being a Good Hostess" to my New Year resolutions because I would be wracking up some serious goal points this year. I recently had the pleasure of hosting a " Brunch Soyree" with some goodies provided by Solae. I thoroughly enjoyed my Chocolate Tasting sans children, but the kids were invited to this brunch gathering and they had so much fun!
Because kids need a lot of protein to start their day, and soy protein can keep kids feeling fuller longer, I put 8th Continent Soymilk ( made from U.S. grown non-GMO soy beans) at the top of the menu! We also had a couple of guests with milk allergies, so the soy milk was the perfect addition. All of the kids enjoyed the milk to drink and with their cereal - so did the adults!
Also on the brunch menu were Jamie's Blueberry Doughnut Muffins (which really do taste as good as they sound!), my Breakfast Egg Muffins (recipe below), some cereal to enjoy with the soy milk, and a lot of fresh fruit - strawberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, and red grapes.
Everyone, kids and adults, had a great time working their way through the menu options. I think Brunch, is officially my favorite meal of the day!
Because I was trying to utilize all the health benefits of soy protein during our brunch meal, I made these Breakfast Egg Muffins with MorningStar Farms Veggie Sausage Patties. These muffins are super quick and easy! Best of all, they feel like a complete breakfast (just add fruit!).
Egg and Toast Muffins
1 package stuffing mix (6 oz)
½ cup butter
5 tablespoons sausage, or veggie sausage, crumbled
½ cup Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin.
Prepare stuffing, with butter, according to package instructions, skipping stand time and cooking instructions. Press approximately ¼ cup stuffing into the bottom and sides of muffin cups. Sprinkle sausage into each cup. Crack an egg into each cup, then sprinkle with cheese.
