Wake-Up Call
A merry holiday brunch sets the tone for a festive day—with half the work of a traditional dinner.

See other articles in this edition  

When anticipation finally yields to the excitement of Christmas morning, offer your family and guests a delicious brunch that’s decadent—in a reasonable sort of way. You can choose organic and natural ingredients and cut the fat and sodium from dishes that are sure to be special treats for a special day. Start by serving chai tea, then move on to a hearty egg casserole, whole grain sweet bread and fruit tray. Or serve up a delicious egg-and-fruit dish that’s reminiscent of a giant popover and accompany it with juice and fresh-brewed coffee. The recipes that follow will show you how to make easy yet festive work of a memorable holiday meal.

Your neighborhood Publix carries a wide selection of organic ingredients, including those shown with an asterisk (*) in these recipes.
