Ah, it looks like spring is finally here! If you’re gearing up to throw an Easter or Mother’s Day brunch, I’ve got a few recipes just for you. From a traditional Italian dessert to my personal spin on a few classics, these are sure to please even the most discerning palette.
Start the day with my twist on Eggs Benedict , which uses a pecorino scone in place of an English muffin, grilled mortadella in place of Canadian bacon, and a tangy Zabaglione sauce instead of Hollandaise.
Pizza Rustica is a quiche-like pie and it’s what I want to eat all day every day for the rest of my life. It’s cheesy, creamy, and meaty all wrapped up in a delicious sweet crust.
During Easter, my family and I always end with something sweet: Pastiera! It’s the sweet version of pizza rustica- a ricotta pie with citruses and creamy wheat-berries. Everyone from Naples knows about this Easter tradition!
