Brunch in Louisville

Brunch in Louisville, KY is a must when visiting. We decided to try the restaurant Zeggz and the food was pleasing and delicious. I was enamored over the Crème Brûlée French Toast. The mimosas were spectacular with the use of one of my favorite Champagne brands Wyclef. If you are in the Louisville, KY area, give Zeggz a try.

Bacon Avocado Toast

Toast to this trendy twist on breakfast for slices of bread. Avocado Toast is a delicious and healthy alternative to using butter. And the toppings that you can use are endless. I wanted a savory taste so I decided on Bacon as my topping. This would be an awesome menu item for Brunch as well. Read the recipe below and give it a try.

~XOXO

Ingredients

2 Slices of Bread (My bread of choice was Sara Lee Artesano)

1 Slice of Thick Cut Bacon (pan fried)

1 Avocado

1 Garlic Clove ( chopped)

1 tbsp. Sautéed Holy Trinity Seasoning*

Pan fry the bacon and cut into crumbles. Set aside.

After opening the Avocado, gently scoop the middle with a spoon into a bowl. Add chopped garlic.

*Extra Steps (my preference)

I sautéed a tablespoon of Holy Trinity Seasoning (onion, celery, and green bell pepper). Added a dash of salt and paprika to taste. ( Lemon Pepper Seasoning would go good as well). I also added a drizzle of avocado oil.

Toast Bread. Set Aside.

Smash the avocado mixture with a fork. Spread over toasted bread. Sprinkle some lemon pepper seasoning over toast.

Add crumbled bacon.

The Albert Burger

I set out on a gorgeous Saturday to have Brunch With my husband and siblings. I discovered a quaint neighborhood bar located in Inman Park called The Albert. Let me assure you that the food is so delicious and we ate every bite of it. My favorite menu item is The Albert Burger. It’s no surprise that I’m a huge pimento cheese advocate and this Burger gave me pimento cheese life!! Topped with bacon and pickled red onion. Now I know why The Albert is the favorite neighborhood bar in Inman Park. Give The Albert a try on your next visit to Atlanta.

The Garden Bird

I just have a question? Who’s mother, aunt, or grandmother is in the kitchen cooking up collard greens and frying chicken?? That’s exactly what comes to mind after eating at Maple Street Biscuit Company. My brunch selection was the Garden Bird. This biscuit came equipped with a southern fried chicken breast and topped with collard greens, fried egg, and a dash of hot sauce. The concept is so southern and takes you back to the days when everyone sat around the kitchen table and enjoyed great food and conversation. If you are in the Atlanta area, give Maple Street Biscuit Company a try.
