Maybe your Valentine’s Day is going to be a little rowdy- dancing and drinking with your favorite cowboy?  Or perhaps y’all are keeping it low-key with a chili cook-off and some Shiner Bock?  Whatever you’ve got planned to celebrate the one you love, here’s a brunch menu that’s sure to please any Texan (or Texan wannabe).

First up- let’s get organized!  Making a fancy brunch and breakfast can sometimes defeat the purpose of a relaxed morning.  Start preparing a few days ahead so you don’t get your slippers in a snit!

Countdown to Brunch:

Three days ahead

  • Make your shopping list and head to the store!  Check your pantry first so you don’t double-buy. Don’t forget to buy butter and jam for your biscuits, cream and sugar for your coffee or tea, and orange juice (and maybe some champagne!). 

Two days ahead

  • Sift together all of the dry ingredients for your biscuits and keep in a covered bowl.

One day ahead

  • Mix up the Tex-Mex Quiche and store in the refrigerator covered and uncooked.  You can pop it in the oven first thing in the morning.
  • Mix together the refried beans and hatch chiles and keep covered in the refrigerator for the Breakfast Tacos.

Morning of brunch

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Pop the Tex-Mex Quiche in the oven- this takes the longest to cook.  Once it’s done, kick up the oven temperature to 400.
  2. While the quiche is cooking, finish up biscuits and get them set up on a baking sheet.  Set aside until just before you’re ready to eat- they only take 10 minutes in the oven and you want to eat them fresh.
  3. Once you’re done with the biscuits, get to work heating everything up for the Breakfast tacos.  Put the beans and chiles in a saucepan over low heat and scramble your eggs.  Wait until just before serving to warm up the tortillas.

Estimated start to finish time the morning of brunch: 45 minutes for all three dishes!  Not too bad for a feast fit for a cowboy!

Enlist your brunch companions to set the table and get drinks ready- this menu calls for strong coffee or perhaps even a mug of hot chocolate.
