Last weekend, I hosted a fall-themed brunch in partnership with Keurig Green Mountain® at my apartment for a few of my friends here in Dallas. For the brunch, I used my brand-new, sandy pearl Keurig® K475 brewer and my favorite Green Mountain Coffee K-Cup® pods to make everything I served. Well, except for the mimosas… obviously!
During our meal, I served a towering mound of Pumpkin Spice Pancakes made using Green Mountain Coffee® Pumpkin Spice, which is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary this year (recipe for the pancakes will be shared soon!). I also served my favorite Apple Cider French Toast, made with Green Mountain™ Hot Apple Cider (recipe below). Oh, and each brunch guest got her own dainty cup of the Green Mountain Coffee® Autumn Harvest Blend; it has a medium, fruity roast that pairs so well with vanilla almond milk.
Yep, I’m pretty sure I won fall brunch on Saturday morning. Gold medal, right here.
My favorite thing about using a Keurig® brewer is that I can brew whatever I want – be it coffee, apple cider, or tea – just at the touch of a button. That’s been particularly ideal for me given that I’m a [super busy] MBA student. Lately, I’ve hardly had enough time to eat, let alone brew my coffee in the morning!
Lest ye think me using my Keurig® brewer is only a morning activity, since receiving the Green Mountain™ Hot Apple Cider K-Cup® pods (aka my favorite of the three!), I’ve started a nightly ritual of drinking a cup of cider around 9PM. Sometimes I’ll even add a dash of rum in it – it seriously makes such a good little nightcap! In addition to the taste, I also love that it’s made using actual ingredients (real apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon). Given that it’s my favorite, is it really any surprise that I incorporated the Green Mountain™ Hot Apple Cider into my all-time fav French Toast recipe?
Answer: no, it’s not. And the results were super delicious, y’all.
