Part of the tradition for the ThanksGavin weekend of gluttony is a Saturday deli brunch. As we celebrate in Philadelphia, we have access to all sorts of good deli and the like.
My mom also made an interesting Southern casserole of eggs, cheddar, and challah.
And pack into a casserole dish, then bake.
For the bagel spread we have the onions — crucial for the lingering bad breath.
Cream cheese, normal and with chives.
Swiss and Muenster cheese.
Kippered salmon and chunky whitefish salad.
It’s worth zooming in on the whitefish salad as this stuff is good!
Good nova lox.
Creamed herring — not for everyone’s taste!
And fresh baked bagels from a local bagel specialty bakery.
Here is the finished casserole which had a soufflé-like texture.
And this incredible donuts from a special place that fries them to order. They only make donuts and for an hour a day — fried chicken! These are three different variants of cinnamon. Certainly the best cinnamon donuts I’ve ever had.
Overall, another great brunch! You can check out last year’s here.
