Farm Fresh Eggs Make Great Brunch Pizza
With summer time moving along, our chickens are hard at work laying an abundance of farm fresh eggs. We thought long and hard about what we could do with these eggs besides the obvious things like quiche and deviled eggs. The solution to using them up was to add a brunch pizza to the menu! Cheese, eggs, and bacon jam with garlic béchamel... perfect brunch flavors! Instead of using our mozzarella, we chose to use our Locksley Farmstead aged Cheddar (Little John.) The benefit of doing a pizza like this is that we are utilizing ingredients from the farm that are readily available at this time of year. We also feel like we are staying ahead of the curve by adding some more options besides your run of the mill pepperoni. Although, our pepperoni pizza is amazing and there is nothing wrong with sticking with a classic! Our other new pizzas include a barbeque chicken pizza with caramelized onions and Mojo marinated pork, with cilantro, sweet potato puree, pickled jalapeno, and pineapple. Many of the wines pair well with these flavor combinations and complement each other nicely. Moving forward, our plans will include some lighter, healthier options to help get us through the dog days of summer. Keep an eye out for our ever evolving menu while you’re at the tasting room. And if you’re not already a club member, consider the benefits because we are already gearing up for our yearly September VIP party. Details to come!
