Hello all who might stumble upon this particular piece. I have decided that My Fantastic Food section is way too empty and what better way to fill up then with awesome Bro brunch’s. . My boyfriend Red ❤ ‘s to cook as do I but he seems to have a particularly fabulous way in the kitchen at noon on a saturday or sunday morning after we have maybe had a little bit of a long night previously or sometimes he makes me brunch on the weekends if I am feeling under the weather or sick. We love to go out for brunch but don’t feel like it sometimes if it’s cloudy out or are just being lazy and really wanna eat in the bed with our jammies on 🙂
Now if you’re wondering what a Bro Brunch is I shall tell you, it’s a wonderful concoction of random food items found in your cupboard or fridge that a guy throws together to make a meal during the brunch hours, which is roughly 11 – 4 pm. Maybe there are weird items and spices that you bought but never quite figured out what to do with in an actual meal. Or maybe you have a few pieces of a meal leftover from every nights dinner of the week. Well Red’s recipes all come about purely because he utilizes whatever is in the fridge, he adds a bit of creativity and turns on his giant headphones and off he goes. I think his recipes can stand toe to toe with some of the great brunch’s I’ve had in NYC and other places. Plus he does a little food dance when he is excited to eat, I could be bias though lol.
So….. one of the my favorites and super easy things he made once with some left over stuff from the dinner I had made the night before literally only has 6 ingredients including the spices 🙂
Name: Don’t have a name for this dish but if I have another beer it might come to me hehe
– Chicken cutlet (from the night before, sliced)
– Yellow peppers ( I use them in salad and there were a few left over) ( sliced)
– Red onion ( That is always in the fridge 🙂 )
– 1 large egg
– Swiss cheese, or any cheese you have in the fridge really that you think might taste good on an egg( sliced or grated )
– Curry powder (optional but try it because you would be surprised how amazing it is) and pepper for seasoning.
– First things first, don’t forget to get some music going to bop your head to, gotta get into the mood for brunch. 🙂
– Next step is super simple and can all be done in the same pan. Heat a large frying pan or skillet, throw 2 or 3 tbsp of olive oil in when it’s nice and hot.
– Add a tsp or 2 of curry powder to the oil and a few dashes of pepper ( to taste) let cook for 2 minutes then toss in your sliced chicken. Let that re-heat and get a tiny crispiness to it, stir the chicken in the oil and spices for 3 or 4 minutes, more if you want the chicken to be crunchier.
– Push your chicken to the side of the pan and throw in your peppers for a second then the red onions and cook for one more minute.
-Push peppers and onions to the side with the chicken, make sure you have some oil still in there for your egg, crack your egg in the pan, cook it over medium ( or however you prefer) and right before it’s finished throw a piece of swiss on top to melt a bit.
– Get your plate ready or bowl ( like me, I try to eat everything in a bowl bc I am weird ) and put the peppers and onions that now have tons of flavor on the bottom, top those with some of the chicken strips that are all curry-fied and crisp and finally, top that with your egg with swiss on top. All done! Eat it!
You can even add small sauteed potatoes with it or other veggies cut up if you have them in the fridge and need to get rid of them. If your cooking for more than one person make the chicken, peppers and onion mix and place it to the side and then make your eggs in the pan seperate and serve as you go. Its fast and uses just a few ingredients that you can add more to to make a bit more fancy or substantial if you want, like whip up a hollandaise sauce to throw on top of it all..
Let’s give a round of applause to the fabulous Red. Good job! Try it this way or do it differently and share it with me so we can try your favorite bro brunch.
Oh and don’t be afraid to open a cold beer with it because brunch is hardly good without a an adult beverage 🙂
Now we have gone out for friday nights of celebrations and had friends stay over the night before and Red has cooked brunch for us all in our hung over state, and well…. because he was raised right, you always make a little food for your still drunk buddies who crashed on the couch or leather chair in the corner 🙂 I’ve seen his guy friends testify in a court of public opinion to the amazing-ness of the breakfast/brunch things he manages to whip up. Smiling as I write this.
Ohhh and Keep an eye out for some amazing meatball recipes I have. Red is a funny and fantastical fanatic when it comes to meatballs so I am often trying to find new and inventive ways to jazz up the average meatball for him and sometimes I simply come across a wonderful recipe of someone else’s. Stay tuned for Meatball Mania.!
