Contraction of the words “breakfast” and “lunch”, brunch is recognized as a hearty meal, sometimes sweet, sometimes salty, and frequently accompanied by an alcoholic beverage. It is also an occasion to take the time to set a nice table, and to cook more refined and more elaborate dishes than simple weekday toasts. Since brunch is meant to be a generous meal, charcuteries are an ingredient of choice and bring a refined touch. Many Nostrano charcuteries are perfect for giving your next brunch a festive touch. We collected some recipes here to inspire you.
FRENCH TOAST WITH GOAT CHEESE, CAPICOLLO AND A SUNNY SIDE UP EGG
A perfect combination of sweet and savory, this French toast topped with seasoned goat cheese and a perfectly runny egg yolk features the delicious Nostrano mild capicollo. This charcuterie goes wonderfully with goat cheese and egg, thanks to its aromas of sweet spices that bring just the right amount of warmth.
EGGS BENEDICT, THE NOSTRANO WAY
Surprise your guests with this original variation of Benedictine eggs! Accompanied by a rosée sauce and freshly cracked pepper, these original eggs that give a twist to a classic dish will really highlight the Genoa Nostrano salami.
CRÊPES WITH MILD CAPICOLLO, CHEESE AND LONG BEANS
Put the Nostrano mild capicollo in the spotlight by serving it in stuffed pancakes accompanied by a béchamel sauce. Step away from the more classic asparagus and try long beans, a vegetable that is worth discovering. Available in most markets that specialize in Asian foods, long beans can also be easily replaced by green beans.
