The Academy Awards ceremony will take place this Sunday evening, March 7, at 7:00pm CST (on ABC), a perfect excuse for a fun get together with your friends and family. Tell guests you are inviting them over for an Academy Awards viewing, games, and breakfast as dinner! Entertain your guests by taking bets on the nominees (try using a party pool sheet), and serving up a hearty vegetarian breakfast for your dinner.
Start with mimosas (orange juice mixed with champagne), spiced new potatoes sautéed with onions, mini “dime-sized” pancakes, and freshly sliced fruit. Many grocery stores (try Jewel or Trader Joes) carry vegetarian (soy) chorizo, which is a delicious Mexican-style sausage that tastes great with scrambled eggs. Here is an award winning recipe below:
Vegetarian Chorizo Breakfast Scramble:
4 inches of chorizo (squeeze out of the casing)
6 white mushrooms chopped
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ cup mozzarella cheese
1 Roma tomato chopped
Few sprigs of fresh cilantro chopped
Fresh avocado slices
Salt and pepper to taste
Scramble the eggs, chorizo, mushrooms and garlic powder together.
Garnish with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, cilantro and avocado, and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with flour tortillas if desired (so your guests can make breakfast burritos). Recipe serves approximately 4.
