Cheesy Brunch Menu Recipes

23 Oct

It’s time once again for my guest post over at the Wisconsin Cheese Mart blog! The challenge this time: create cheesy recipes for a brunch spread.

Well now, that’s combining two of the best things: cheese and brunch, which is arguably the best meal. I could easily eat breakfast all day long, and brunch aims to accomplish just that! Throw in a spicy Blood Mary or mimosa, and you’re set for the day.

I rose to the challenge just like a cheese souffle rises in the oven. The result? A brunch filled with cheesy morsels to rule them all.

For starters, I created a sweet potato and chocolate mousse topped with an Espresso parmesan cheese tweel. I wanted to set the stage for the meal with both sweet and salty flavors in one.

Next up are these adorable caprese pinwheels, which appear more difficult to make than they are! A simple puff pastry sheet is filled with a mixture of fresh tomatoes, smoked string cheese and basil straight from my garden. The pastry is rolled up and sliced, ready to bake. The result: a wonderfully savory pastry that can be enjoyed on its own, or paired with the rest of brunch.

These vegetable egg cups get their richness from the shredded 5-year aged cheddar that goes on top. Fresh veggies enhance the overall texture,and the cheddar just slightly disperses throughout the cups as they bake. Even better: you can easily customize these cups to your own preferences, or allow your guests to add the ingredients they like most!

Finally, brunch is not complete without a sweet note to end on. I folded Blueberry White Cheddar cheese with fresh blueberries and real maple syrup into another sheet of puff pastry, folded them into turnovers, and brushed the tops with a bit of melted butter, which gives the baked result a beautiful toasted brown color. The melted cheese combines with the full blueberries to create a flavor explosion in your mouth!

    Oh my gosh, YUM! My husband went to school in Wisconsin so he LOVES anything with cheese 😉 (I had my first taste of cheese curds when we went to the Minnesota state far a couple years ago!) These recipes all look amazing!

      Aren’t fresh curds amazing?! I’m quite happy to be a Wisconsinite…beer, cheese…we have it all! All of the cheeses featured in this post can be purchased online thru the Wisconsin Cheese Mart, so maybe a surprise cheesy brunch for your hubby is in order? 🙂
