As I reflect on a wonderful Kentucky Derby brunch from this past Saturday, I realize the comparable qualities to that of a perfect Mother's Day brunch for family this upcoming Sunday. The dishes translate flawlessly, from poached eggs on flaky biscuits to radish goat cheese toasts (see recipe below). If you have yet to make a restaurant reservation, do not fret! A homemade meal with your personal touch will please any mother...That's why I'm planning a spring frittata and Strano's freshly baked cinnamon rolls to-go for mine. How are you celebrating and gifting for Mother's Day?
1 loaf ciabatta, sliced 2 tablespoons olive oil 8 radishes, thinly sliced 1 4 ounce round of goat cheese, room temperature 1 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped Maldon flaky sea salt, to taste
1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat in cast iron skillet. Place 4-5 toast slices on skillet (or however many fit!). Leave for 2 minutes until golden brown. Flip. Remove toast and repeat until all slices are golden.
2. Spread each toast slice with a thin layer of goat cheese. Top with radish slices, a sprinkle of rosemary, sea salt, and black pepper.
