    Pampered Chef Brunch Shows


    I try to do as many as possible in the winter -
    with the weather worse and summer - when
    kids have games all week, etc.

    I just had a host that was going to have a
    show last Sat at 2 and when I talked with her
    the 2nd time, I mentioned I do brunch shows
    too & she said I never thought of that, so
    we did one! It's so much easier to get to
    their house and get guests there from 10:30
    to 11 and out by noon-1 and they have the
    rest of their day and so do I!

    I made up my own McBreakfast ring, similar
    ingredients to the Bountiful Brunch recipe we
    have, but do in ring. Also a friend director does a
    Bob Evans gravy recipe in the Bar pan for

    Roll out 1 pkg crescent rolls on Bar stone;
    spread with 1 pouch of Bob Evans sausage
    gravy mix (2 pouches come in a box in the freezer
    section); sprinkle with cheese and anythign else
    you'd like. Bake ? @ 20 minutes, I forget, I just
    do it! You can pop it in when you come or
    demo and do a fruit, salad, etc. with it.

    I did the Chicken Casear Salad Pizza for my
    11 o'clock show on Sat and there wasn't a scrap
    left (also didn't realize till we were looking thru
    the cookbooks that it's GOOD FOR YOU!) and
    I put the Best Brownies you've ever eaten in
    Family skillet since I was already using a stone
    for pizza, while doing demo.
    (Hey it was going to be noon when they ate, so don't
    limit yourself to just breakfast ideas!)

    Best Brownies you've ever ate:
    2 eggs lightly beaten
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 - 8 oz cool whip, thawed
    combine in Batter bowl
    Stir in 1 pkg of Brownie mix (9X13 size)
    add nuts if deired
    spread in greased Rect Baker or into
    Family skillet which has 1 tablespoon of
    butter melted in it.
    Spnkle with 1/2 cup chocolate chips &
    1/2 cup white chocolate chips.
    Bake 25-30 minutes!
    (I did get it to cool just enough to dump
    out on Round Platter (hmmm recruiting!)
    and dusted with stencil/flour sugar shaker
    with Conf. sugar! serve with slice n Serve!
    Guest suggestsed vanilla ice cream and
    hot fugde sauce too, but it was still alittle
    warm at lunch - so I think that would be too
    much - haha!

    More Pampered Chef Brunch Ideas

    My favorite brunch recipe is the Ham & Cheese Omelet roll from the
    Main Dishes. It cooks for 30 minutes but it goes in the oven right away and
    then you can grate the cheese and chop the ham and slice the green onions.
    Plenty of time to talk about new products. Big "Oooh" when the omelet comes
    out of the oven.

    Often the host wants to serve something with it. I will request that she
    make up her favorite sweet bread recipe (banana, pumpkin, etc.) and bake it
    in the mini-loaf pan. We put that in the oven right when I arrive so that
    the house is filled with the wonderful aroma of bread baking.

    Now that we have the new Chillzanne Rectangular Server, she can put out a
    fruit tray if she still wants more food. It makes for a perfect brunch!

    Other Recipe Ideas

    Hi...I am wondering if there are any other recipes that anyone has done at brunch shows that have been successful...I have one coming up in May, and I am thinking about putting out a fruit platter to demonstrate some of the garnishing tools as well as the SA, but I would like to have something easy baking in the oven as the guests are arriving...any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

    I haven't tried making it yet, but in the new Season's Best there is a really yummy sounding recipe that would be great as a brunch.. the Ham and Cheddar Croissant Bake. I love brunch/breakfast food. I think I may try to promote a "Breakfast for Dinner" theme for my upcoming shows. That recipe seems like a good show recipe. It shows cookware, stoneware, US&G, chopper and a bunch of other stuff. It bakes for 30-35 minutes so that's a good B recipe time or a chance to do recruiting games and stuff. I'll have to practice that one soon.

    Brunch help!

    Im doing my first brunch mid-Sept, so I am starting to need ideas. I really want to promote our stones (host/guest special). Have any of you tried the Ham & Cheddar Croissant Bake from the new SB? The last SB had the Ham and Egg Brunch Braid in it, and that is good too. Also - the Ham/Chesse Friatta is a good idea too. Anyone tried all 3....and do any of you have a recipe for a monkey bread type thing in the fluted pan? I know you use canned biscuits and I was thinking this would be a great way to show off the fluted pan and it could bake at the same time as the egg thingy. My host wants me to do the Apple Berry Salsa too - I'll prob just do that up ahead and show it off in the simple additions. Any ideas to make this fun would be appreciated! Thanx so much and I'm lovin this board! :D

    It sounds like you have some great ideas. So you want to have 3 recipes at the show? Are you just showing one recipe or two?

    Here are some brunch ideas and fluted stone recipes. The monkey bread in the fluted stone recipes is a parmesian version. Here are some other monkey bread variations.

    ¨Cinnamon Graham Monkey Bread
    1 ½ loaves frozen bread dough, thawed (or one package of white or Parker house rolls, thawed)
    ¼ - ½ cup melted butter or margarine
    ¾ cup granulated sugar
    1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
    2 ½ teaspoons cinnamon (Pampered Chef Korintje Cinnamon is the best)

    Lightly grease Fluted Pan. Divide thawed loaf of dough into 24 equal pieces (16 pieces for the whole loaf and 8 pieces for the half loaf). If using rolls they are ready to use once they have been thawed. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cracker crumbs, nuts and cinnamon. Set aside. Dip each piece of dough in melted butter and then roll in sugar mixture. Make sure that the dough is coated generously with the sugar mixture. Place each piece of dough evenly in pan. Let the dough rise until double in size. Bake in a preheated 375 F oven for 30 - 40 minutes. The bread should be well browned and sound hollow when tapped on top. Remove from oven and let loaf cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and serve.

    ¨Cream Cheese-Filled Monkey Bread
    1 (2-pound) package frozen white bread dough
    ½ cup (4 oz) block-style cream cheese
    1/3 cup sugar, divided
    1 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon, divided
    Cooking spray
    ½ cup reduced-calorie maple-flavored pancake syrup

    Thaw bread dough in refrigerator according to package directions. Combine cream cheese, 1 tablespoon sugar, and ¼ tsp cinnamon in a bowl; stir well, and set aside. Combine remaining sugar a remaining cinnamon; stir well, and set aside. Cut each loaf of dough into 24 equal portions. Flatten each portion into a 2 ½ inch circle. Spoon ½ tsp cream cheese mixture into center of each circle. Gather dough around cheese mixture, forming a ball; pinch edges of dough together to seal. Roll each ball in cinnamon-sugar mixture, and layer balls in Stoneware Fluted Pan brushed with oil. Sprinkle any remaining cinnamon sugar over dough; pour syrup over dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 40 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Preheat over to 350F. Bake for 28 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately loosen edges of bread with a knife. Place a serving plate, upside down, on top of pan; invert bread onto plate. Remove pan, and
    drizzle any remaining syrup over bread.

    ¨Fluted Cinnamon Bread
    2 cans "cheap refrigerated biscuits" (the ones that come in a 4-pack of blue cans)
    1 stick butter or margarine, melted
    ¼ cup sugar
    2 teaspoons cinnamon

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray inside of Stoneware Fluted Pan well with vegetable oil. Mix cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces with Kitchen Shears. Dip each piece in butter or margarine to coat, then dip in sugar/cinnamon mixture to coat. Place in Stoneware Fluted Pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Invert serving plate over Stoneware Pan and flip over. Lift off Stone and serve.

    ¨Monkey Bread
    4 cans biscuits
    2/3 cup sugar 1 tsp. cinnamon
    Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Mix sugar and cinnamon together with biscuit pieces. Grease Stoneware Fluted Pan. Drop biscuit pieces into Stoneware Fluted Pan. Heat to boil the following ingredients: 1 cup brown sugar, 1 stick margarine and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Pour over the biscuit pieces. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Let sit about 10 minutes before inverting onto a plate. Optional Add Ins: chopped nuts, raisins, chopped apples. Pull apart and enjoy!

    ¨Sticky Buns (make 12-hours ahead)
    Coat fluted stoneware pan Pan-eze
    Sprinkle ¾ cups chopped nuts evenly in pan
    Arrange 1 package of FROZEN Dinner Rolls (dough balls) over nuts.
    Sprinkle 2/3 -3/4 c. brown sugar over dough balls
    Sprinkle powder from 1 box (3.2 oz) COOK & SERVE Butterscotch Pudding Mix over sugar
    Sprinkle 1 tsp. Cinnamon over top
    Arrange 6 T. of butter slices evenly over all
    Cover with foil & leave on counter overnight to thaw and rise. Bake at 350 for 30 min. Invert after 5 min; serve.

    Thanks Ginger! I am probably just doing 2 recipes. I'll do the simple monkey bread recipe you sent ahead of time, then have it baking while they arrive, and demo one of the Ham & Egg Rings. My host is going to have fruit already cut up. Oh - and also I'll do some frozen orange juice to show off the quick stir pitcher. Thanks again!
