Children's Hospital New Orleans

  Volunteer's Breakfast

Children's Hospital Auditorium

  May 12, 2009

Children’s Hospital of New Orleans is one of the finest institutions in my city. And I think what drives the hospital is the giving that the hundreds of volunteers dedicate to the goals and aspirations of the hospital.

Children’s also gives back, they have asked me to cater the Volunteer’s Breakfast Brunch for the past 4 or 5 years. I love this event!!

I get to cook several of my favorite dishes! Creole Grillades are the perfect brunch entrée! My grandmother (Mom Mom) used to make it for the family on most Sundays. She would start it early, and leave it on the stove top as we would go to Mass. When we would return, they would be tender and juicy.

Also, on or my family’s dearest friends is Ms Maureen Liuzza, she grew up with my mom, and knows my Mom Mom’s grillades. I asked her, and she says that they are very reminiscent of hers!!! Wow, what a fantastic comment!

My Mom Mom would make regular grits, but I like our Creamy Cheesy Grits, and so do the Children’s Hospital Volunteers. I know this, because I get 3 or 4 requests for my recipe!! OK, OK!!! Everyone wanted my recipe for Creamy Grits so here it is!!

Along with the above I get to cook our Cheesy Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Sausage and Gallons of Fresh Fruit!! Now, that is a cool thank you breakfast for the Volunteers.
