Brunching with Louis Sel

Throughout the holiday season, we tend to focus on the big, festive dinners. We are distracted with planning meals that have a turkey, a brisket, a ham, and a beef tenderloin. These big meals are so distracting that we almost forget that we might actually need to eat something else throughout the day. And if you are hosting company, you definitely don’t want to forget about those other meal times. You definitely don’t want any hangry family members around!

Instead of stressing over two additional meals when guests are in town for the holidays, consider having an easy brunch. The best part about brunch is that it can consist of a wide range of options, so everyone should be able to find something that they enjoy eating.

We’ve put together a quick list of some of our favorite brunch items. Choose one or all to include in your brunch menu this holiday season. Of course, our Fleur de Sel and Sel Marin will complement pretty much any brunch item!

If you’ve been stuffing yourself at what seems like every meal, opt for something a little lighter at brunch. Consider sprinkling a halved grapefruit with Fleur de Sel. Salt can actually cut the bitterness of grapefruit, leaving a sweeter taste in your mouth.

Purchase a variety of bagels and put out all the fixings: smoked salmon, cream cheese, hard-boiled eggs, chopped red onion, capers, sliced tomato, avocado, and sliced cucumber. If you are feeling really ambitious, fry an egg to put on top. Everything tastes better with a fried egg and a dash of Fleur de Sel!

If you want more of a boozy brunch, offer your guests a Bloody Mary. Make sure you have celery, lime wedges, and green olives for garnish. Salt the glass rims with our Fleur de Sel for an additional touch.

Stick with a classic and make eggs to order: scrambled, fried, poached, soft boiled, etc. All eggs are complimented nicely with our Sel Marin.

If you’re looking for something with a little less cooking involved, avocado toast is an easy option. Just make sure you buy plenty of avocados ahead of time so that they are ripe. Avocado toast is another brunch item that tastes awfully good with a fried egg and Fleur de Sel on top!

Roast a bunch of vegetables with our Sel Marin the night before your brunch and heat them up in a skillet the next morning. Instead of having eggs on top of toast, serve the eggs over the warmed roasted vegetables. Consider roasting sweet potatoes, squash, onions, or regular potatoes.

There is always the one sweet tooth, so we can’t forget about a fan favorite: cinnamon rolls. Make your own or buy them in a store, but either way, don’t forget to warm them up and have extra frosting. Don’t forget some Fleur de Sel on top to break the sweetness of all that sugar.  

Bon appétit!
