During the holidays when family are friends are likely to be visiting, I suggest treating them to a hearty south Louisiana breakfast like beignets and café au lait! The beignet mix from Café de Monde is the best around and their coffee with chicory makes perfect café au lait, which is simply equal parts of hot, strong coffee and hot milk or cream.  Don’t forget to generously sprinkle with beignets with powdered sugar. If you have the time and want to really impress your guests, I suggest making one of my favorite brunch dishes---grillades (pronounced gree-yahds) and cheesy baked grits.  It’s best to make the grillades (beef or veal cooked long and slow in a spicy tomato-based gravy) a day in advance to allow the flavors to meld.  You can certainly make the grillades way in advance and store in the freezer for later use.
