The day I posted a little teaser for this Spring Herb Quiche it snowed. I suppose I was trying to manifest spring through recipe development. But it’s about as effective as you would imagine it to be. But while I can’t control the late April flurries, I can put plenty of green on my table. Oh and buy armfuls of tulips. You have no idea what those blooms mean to Canadians with seasonal affective disorder. Today’s quiche is the perfect way to ease into the season. It’s loaded with fresh herbs and bright refreshing flavors but it also has enough richness to chase the early spring chill away. So let’s dig in.

I think brunch is the most difficult meal to pull off. I know that may sound surprising but I think any meal centered around eggs becomes a race against time. Cooking is a lot like comedy, it all comes down to timing. And this is especially true when it comes to brunch. Poached eggs, fried eggs, bacon, and pancakes. All of these classic brunch items have different cook times and are difficult to make in bulk on a four-burner stove.

Pulling off a delicious brunch at home can be a delicate operation but it is certainly not impossible.

So Overthinking Classics provides me with an outlet to make whatever classic dish I happen to be craving that month. Oh, and I get to generally nerd out about each and every facet of that dish, which, I’m sad to say, qualifies as a very good time for me. And this month’s subject is Irish Soda Bread. So let’s dive in!

It’s been a while since we’ve brunched on this blog. I still regret that I didn’t manage to work a holiday brunch into my content calendar this year, but I suppose that’s what next year is for. But enough about regret, let’s talk about today’s Huevos Rancheros Brunch Burger, a real looker if I do say so myself. What you’re looking at here is a refried bean and wild rice burger patty perched on top of a bun slathered with a simmered tomato salsa and blue corn tortilla chips topped with a sunny-side-up egg. There are some avocado and jalapeƱo slices in there as well for good measure. Sound good? Good! Let’s dive right in.
