Food gifts are great for the hoildays because they will always “fit”; their size and color work for everyone. Christmas gifts like panettone, baskets of fruit and some Christmas dinner ham or Proscuito can be the base for a wonderful brunch for you and your house guests. When you put dinner away tonight, think about what you can use for a brunch. French toast made with Panettone, a fruit salad made with fruit from your gift basket, scrambled eggs, your meat of choice, a morning cocktail like Bellini or Bloody Mary and plenty of coffee. So tonight take inventory as you clean up after Christmas dinner and plan tomorrow’s menu.

Meat selection of Italian sausage patties or Baked spiral ham
