Pinterest Recipes – Brunch

My friends and I decided to get creative one rainy morning and make ourselves a big brunch.  Partially because of this blog and partially because we are all trying to save money, my friends and I have ended up cooking a lot this summer (side note: my friends especially love this blog because a lot of times I just end up cooking for them), but we had never done brunch before.   As usual, I took a few breakfast food recipes off my Pinterest.

The best recipe we made was one for biscuits with eggs, cheese, and bacon on the inside.  They remind me of the breakfast sandwiches my brother and I used to get every Wednesday on the way to high school (i.e, they are to die for) and they are super easy to make.  Just make scrambled eggs, fry or microwave bacon, and put it all together with cheese in the ready-made Pillsbury biscuit dough.  Once you wrap the dough around the filling, you put them in a cupcake tin and bake them in the oven.  The cheese melts, and you have a delicious (and portable) breakfast.  You could probably put other breakfast foods like sausage in the biscuits as well to suit your tastes, or leave out the bacon to make it slightly healthier.

The other recipe we made was for eggs frittatas cooked directly in a cupcake tin.  This is a super easy way to make eggs with all the mix-ins you would normally put in an omelet.  Crack an egg in a bowl, whisk it and add in cheese, tomatoes, spinach, or whatever else you like with your eggs, and pour the mixture into an individual spot in the cupcake pan.  Once you’ve filled the pan, you just bake them in the oven.  These did not turn out great when I made them because the link on Pinterest did not include directions on exactly how long to leave them in the oven, but since then I have found a better link for the recipe.

What makes the Gavel so BANGin’? I love the Gavel because it’s so new. We are still figuring out who we are as an organization and how far we can go. While this presents us with a clear set of challenges, it’s really fun to try different things and build our own identity.
You have 24 hours to give prospective students a tour of BC and convince them to enroll. How do you spend the day? First, I would take them on an actual tour of the campus—it’s beautiful and deserves to be shown off. Then I would take them to a football tailgate, a hockey game, and to Marathon Monday. And we would eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Hillside – after an egg sandwich, a Panini, and a cheeseburger, who wouldn’t want to go to BC?
If you could go back in time and give yourself a pep talk the night before you moved into BC as a freshman, what is the most important piece of advice that you would give to your former self? I would tell myself to keep pushing to meet new people and try new things. It’s easy to get stuck in a groove you’re comfortable with, but you should never limit yourself like that—the people at BC and the school itself have so much to offer.
What is your favorite study spot on campus? A classroom in Gasson, or the booths on the first floor of O’Neill.
What is your go-to meal at Late Night? Usually mozzarella sticks, sometimes pizza…
What is the #1 most played song on your iTunes? Love and Memories by OAR
What is the best Halloween costume that you have ever worn? I was a gumball machine, along with our lovely editor-in-chief, and we rocked it.
If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would you choose? There’s this Italian restaurant called Bolu in my hometown. It’s always absolutely delicious, and it has enough variety on its menu to get me through the rest of my life.
If you could befriend the main characters from any TV show or movie, who would you choose and why? The characters on How I Met Your Mother. Mainly so I could experience the joy of high-fiving Barney Stinson all the time. More Posts
