A Marvelous Mother’s Day Brunch Recipe with Champagne

May 2, 2014

I love breakfast in bed, especially on Mother’s Day when I can sleep in and lounge around. Treat Mom next Sunday to a decadent breakfast or brunch of Crab Cakes Eggs Benedict paired with a delicious full-bodied Brut Champagne. The dry and complex flavors of an aged Brut pair beautifully with the richness of this twist on a breakfast classic. Mom is sure to love it (I know this mom will)!!

Fat Cork recommends the Pascal Redon Brut Champagne with this dish. If you’re a fan of Veuve Cliquot, you’ll love this variety they fondly nicknamed “Widow Killer.”

1/2 cup finely chopped celery
