On Valentine's Day, you want to keep it really simple. Simple ingredients & simple plates always look better than overly themed red & pink decor and food.

This sophisticated brunch consists of bacon hearts, XO pancakes with powdered sugar & berries, a citrus salad with thyme leaves and sugar glaze. Impress your loved ones by saying so much with little accents.


BACON HEARTS

Slice the bacon in half, arrange into heart shapes on a sheet tray & bake for 15 mins at 350 degrees.


XO PANCAKES

I used pancake batter to creates rounds then free hand cut the XO shapes. I sifted some powdered sugar over the pancakes & served it with a fresh bowl of berries & mint.


CITRUS SALAD

Using heart shaped cookie cutters, I cut out shapes from grapefruit, navel oranges, blood oranges, & mandarin oranges.

Grapefruit tends to be bitter, so you always want to top it with sugar or honey. I used a sugar glaze (1/2 tsp sugar, 1 tsp water) with thyme leaves to give it a fresh flavour.
