Brunch Time Sausage and Egg Croissants is a simple dish really. Sausages are baked and sliced, eggs are poached, both are placed on top of warmed croissants and topped with tomato mustard seed relish.

I got the idea to include a tomato mustard seed relish to this dish after seeing one of Bobby Flay’s Brunch shows. He added a tomato mustard seed relish to a poached egg and pancetta dish. It looked marvelous so I had to give it a whirl.

I love sausage and egg. For this dish I prefer pork breakfast sausages myself, but you can use your favorite sausage if you like. Almost any will do. You can use chicken, beef or turkey sausage, or perhaps andouille or kielbasa.

If you need a heartier meal for brunch, Baked Fingerling Sweet Potato Wedges are a nice addition.

So many go out for brunch with friends, but I much prefer brunch at home. Granted it’s much easier to head to a restaurant and make an order from a menu, but restaurants are so often really busy for brunch service. What should be a fun gathering with friends can become a test of patience and a lesson in blocking out conversations of others. Do yourself a favor and have brunch at home once in a while.
