HOUSTON – The holidays are all about spending time with your loved ones and gathering around the table to enjoy some good food.
And it all starts with breakfast!
If you’re hosting for the holidays this year, Tanji Patton of Goodtaste with Tanji, has some ideas to help you plan your morning menu.
Tanji recommends the pumpkin pancakes and house-made chorizo plate from Pecan Creek Grille in Houston’s Energy Corridor.
If you prefer to cook at home, Tanji suggests Goodtaste’s recipe for Cheesy Waffle Strata with Maple Black Pepper Bacon.
She describes it as a savory breakfast casserole, made easy with frozen waffles, maple-glazed bacon, cheddar cheese, and topped with a silky, eggy custard.

She also has some ideas for drinks, including a refreshing gin cocktail called “The Elder Stateswoman.”
She made it with gin, fresh grapefruit juice and salted thyme infused simple syrup.
Tanji also suggests these wines for your holiday parties, Les Jamelles Pinot Noir and Whimsical Bubbles Sparkling.
Both bottles are less than $15.
Watch Goodtaste with Tanji this weekend on KPRC 2 at 5:30 a.m.
