spicy red beans

Serves six

Ingredients.

1 ear fresh corn, in the husk
1/4 cup plus 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups red, yellow, or orange cherry tomatoes (or a combination), halved
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
2 small cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 recipe Simple Roasted Potatoes
3 Tbs. red-wine vinegar

Directions:

Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F. Remove the husk and put the corn on a small baking sheet. Drizzle 1 tsp. of the oil onto the corn and rub it over all the kernels. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper. Roast, turning the cob occasionally, until the corn kernels are light brown in a few spots, about 20 minutes. Let the corn cool. Cut the kernels from the cob.

Add the corn, tomatoes, red, green, and yellow peppers, onion, basil, and garlic to the potatoes. Toss gently. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup oil and the vinegar together and add to the salad. Toss again. Season with kosher salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

Roasted Shrimp with Rosemary and Thyme

These eggs are surprisingly easy: Just four ingredients, and they’re ready in about 10 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients

2 tsp. unsalted butter, softened
4 large eggs
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1-1/2 tsp. chopped fresh chives
2 Tbs. heavy cream

Directions

Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 425°F. Butter 2 oven-safe 6-inch gratin dishes with 1 tsp. butter each.

Crack 2 eggs into each gratin dish. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and sprinkle with the chives. Drizzle 1 Tbs. cream in each dish, starting over the yolks and working around the dish. Bake until the eggs are bubbly and browned on the edges but not quite set in the middle, 5 minutes. (For firmer eggs, bake an additional 1 minute .)

Heat the broiler on high. Broil the eggs, still on the center rack of the oven, until the center is just set, about 2 minutes. Remove from the oven immediately—the eggs will continue to set.

Braided Brunch Loaf By Annie Copps

braided brunch loaf

Yes, you will have me to thank for this semi-genius breakfast or brunch dish. I"ll call it a braided brunch loaf because I don"t know how else to describe it, but my inability to properly name it doesn"t take away from the considerable wow factor of it"s presentation. And yes... it is very easy and forgiving to prepare.

Basically what we are talking about here is puff pastry stuffed with scrambled eggs and whatever else tastes good to you. I like to go with a bit of everything, so I start with cooking some potato with onions and red bell pepper. Then I add in some bacon or chopped ham, a dozen eggs, some scallions, and cheese. Cook until just set—don"t fully cook.

Lay down a sheet of puff pastry—yes, defrosted store bought, you and I are not making that from scratch. Cut horizontal strips 1/3 of the way down the length of both sides of the pastry. Lay the scrambled egg down the center, then fold in the sides of the dough like braid to cover the eggs. Bake until the pastry is browned and puffed. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the ohs and ahs.

braided brunch loaf, step 3

braided brunch loaf, step 4

Ingredients
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 russet potato, peeled and cut into ½ inch cubes
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced into ¼ inch
4 strips cooked bacon, chopped (or ham)
1 dozen eggs
2 scallions finely chopped
8 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
½ cup shredded mild cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
1 egg white
1 teaspoon water
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, defrosted

Directions
In a large saute pan, over medium high heat, melt butter and sauté potatoes for 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften. Add onion and pepper and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until onion is cooked, flipping ingredients with a spatula every so often, being careful not to break up potato. Add bacon. Lower heat to medium.

In medium bowl, whisk together eggs and scallion. Add to sauté pan. Fold in cream cheese and cheddar and gently scramble until just set. Remove to a separate bowl and cool to room temperature (or refrigerate).

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk together egg white and water.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll one sheet of puff pastry into a 10-by-12-inch rectangle.

Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or Silpat.

Trim pastry (see photo 1).

Place half of egg mixture into center of pastry and braid (see photos 2 and 3, for folding pattern).

Brush with egg wash (see photo 4).

Repeat with other pastry sheet.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned.

French Toast
By Annie Copps

Today we're talking about French toast. This morning stalwart most likely got its name from the French dish, pain perdu or "lost bread"—a poetic way to say stale bread. And slightly stale bread is one of the keys to French toast that has a crunchy exterior with light and airy insides. Essentially this is bread, soaked in custard, and pan fried; perhaps the precursor to bread pudding.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Start to Finish Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients
1 cup milk
6 large eggs
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 (1/2-inch) slices slightly stale country loaf, brioche, or challah bread
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
Maple syrup

Directions
Heat oven to 350°. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour into a shallow pan (a pie pan works well). Dip bread into mixture and let soak about 30 seconds on each side. Remove to a cooling rack sitting on a sheet pan. Let sit at least 2 minutes, but not more than 3.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, melt approximately 2 tablespoons butter (you want a thin layer coating the pan). Lay two or three bread slices into the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan, lay on a baking sheet, and place in oven about 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining bread. Serve immediately with maple syrup.
