I never tire of singing the praises of brunch – it’s a great way to entertain all the way around. It comes at a convenient time of the day, offers the opportunity to serve a variety of favorite foods and exudes a fun and festive aura. My brunches tend to lean more toward breakfast, simply because I love breakfast foods. But brunch menus also often include typical lunch foods, too.
Here are two cheesecake recipes sure to add a festive twist to a holiday brunch. Both were past recipe contest winners and feature an easy-to-make crust made with a Martha White® muffin mix. Savory Apple Cinnamon Bacon Breakfast Cheesecake features savory cheesecake seasoned with bacon and sautéed onion. The crust has a slightly sweet twist from using the Martha White® Apple Cinnamon Flavored Muffin Mix. You could substitute with other muffin mix flavors like Blueberry, if you prefer.
Dulce de Leche Swirl Cheesecake is a dessert cheesecake that requires only six ingredients. The crust can be made with a Martha White® Apple Cider Flavored Muffin Mix or a Martha White® Cinnamon Sugar Flavored Muffin Mix and butter. The filling consists of Neufchatel or cream cheese, sugar and eggs, swirled with caramel topping.
Either recipe will add a festive touch to you holiday brunch whether it’s breakfast or lunch inspired.
