As a family, we had a lot to celebrate this weekend. Birthdays, good news, and the end of a brutally cold mid-winter race. So, of course, we ate brunch. A lot of it.
Side note: This post is all about brunch. If you don’t like brunch, then, I’m sorry but we really can’t be friends.
After the Manasquan mid-winter beach run/walk, we ran even faster to a breakfast place called The Buttered Biscuit. It was just too delicious to not share with you.
Most of us are watching our carbs, or just want to eat a little bit healthier, and we know that it’s wise to lower carbohydrates and increase our intake of protein and veggies.
Introducing – The Low Carb Egg Bake
This recipe can be made ahead of time and heated up during the week for a quick protein-rich breakfast. Or, if you’re anything like me and my crew, it makes for a delicious brunch recipe that will keep you full for hours!
As you can see, breaking the fast can be just as delightful when you’re lowering your carb intake. I must give credit to my sister for this tasty recipe that your whole family (or the friends you make family) will enjoy.

I’ll end this post with a quote by Julia Child,
“A party without cake is just a meeting.”
