Add a summertime zest to a breakfast classic by preparing fluffy lemon ricotta pancakes. It may feel odd to add cheese to pancakes, however, ricotta adds moisture to the pancakes making them taste extra decadent and rich. Ricotta is a type of cheese that blends seamlessly into a recipe adding texture rather than a bold cheesy flavor. To prepare, mix your wet and dry ingredients separately. Then, pour the batter onto your griddle into your desired shape. Simply observe and flip when they’re ready! If you would like, you can top with fresh berries, syrup, and of course butter.

Caprese Eggs Benedict

Bring the flavors of the garden into your next brunch by opting for this Caprese Eggs Benedict. This dish embraces many of the classic features of an eggs benedict like poached eggs, hollandaise, and toasted English muffins. However, the addition of fresh tomato slices and basil adds a lighter feel that embraces the mood of summer. However, meat lovers can add complimentary additions like prosciutto or a lean turkey bacon.
