I’m a huge fan of breakfast for dinner. I probably have breakfast for dinner at least twice per week. The beauty of breakfast is that it’s flexible. While usually my breakfast for dinner (aka Brinner) is usually pretty simple (i.e. eggs and beans), you can get full on fancy with brinner. I’m glad to know other people share my affinity for Brinner, especially Eggland’s Best.
Eggland’s Best is an egg company. You might have seen them around the grocery store or on Twitter or Facebook. I had never tried their eggs before but when they offered some up to throw a “Brinner Party,” I was all over it.
I mean who can say no to eggs? They’re a little bit great (don’t forget how awesome Egg Salad on a Hot Dog is!)
Given my love of Eggs, Brinner and Food Parties (Hi, remember Peanut Butter Party and Chicken & Waffles?), a Brinner party was a natural next step.
We all know any good dinner party needs:
- A drink
- An Appetizer
- An Entree
I hit 3 out of 4 with this party. You won’t believe this but I actually skipped dessert! (Who am I?!?!)
I had high hopes for dessert, but didn’t follow through because everyone was too full from the menu. Must have been all those eggs! (PROTEIN! It keeps you full!) <— This is NOT me making a health claim… not that I ever do.
This brinner party also coincided with the World Cup Final. So of course, any sporting event (and brinner party) needs a good cocktail. I went with peach bellinis with fresh homemade peach puree:
Super simple. Peel some peaches, throw them in the food processor (or vitamix) and mix with your champagne of choice. Then ta-da! Serve up! No added sugar just peach and alcohol.
With cocktails served, first up were the appetizers. Since the world cup was going on, I decided to keep it sports friendly. I don’t know about you, but sliders are one of my favorite sports-watching-foods. So how about some breakfast sliders?
These are all sorts of awesome. Biscuits. Eggs. Bacon. Sausage Gravy.
You’re welcome. I’ll do a full recipe post on these soon!
After the game and some chatting and hanging around, it was time for dinner.
When it comes to dinner parties, I’m a big fan of interactive meals. I think my friends are starting to get tired of it, but I love having make-your-own-____ meals. It takes the pressure off of the host to have everything timed perfectly and it also lets guests pick and choose what they like (in the event your guests are picky or have food allergies).
When I was brainstorming the perfect Brinner party meal that would be tasty, fun and hearty, I couldn’t stop thinking of burritos. So that’s what she wrote… Build Your Own Breakfast Burrito Brinner Party!
As everyone made their burritos, I snapped a few photos. I love seeing what everyone decided to add to theirs.
Included in the breakfast burrito bar:
- Burrito Sized Tortillas (seriously enormous)
- Scrambled Eggs
- Tater Tots
- Breakfast Sausage
- Sour Cream
- Cheddar Cheese
- Cotija Cheese
I had an awesome time with this Build Your Own Breakfast Burrito Brinner Party. I hope my guests did too!
In addition to being awesome and providing me with plenty of eggs for this Brinner party, Eggland’s Best is also giving one lucky Foodologie reader an Eggland’s Best Prize Pack!
