16 Ingredients, Brunch for 8!

With just 16 ingredients you can make a healthy brunch for 8!  Perfect for the holidays!

Grocery List
1 small bottle of olive oil
1 onion
1 dozen eggs
2 10 ounce packages of frozen chopped spinach
1 small bottle of garlic powder
1 small bottle of ground nutmeg
1 bottle of parmesan cheese
4 small oranges
1 small bags of frozen blueberries
1 can of crushed pineapple
1 small bag of sugar
1 stick of butter
1 small bag of brown sugar
1 small bottle of honey
1 bag of raisins
1 10 ounce package of biscuits


These bright and cheery fruit cups can easily be varied by filling them with different fruits.  Let your imagination and taste buds guide you.

Makes 8 servings

      small oranges, cut in half crosswise
1      cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (unsweetened)
1      cup canned crushed pineapple (packed in juice), drained
      teaspoon confectioners' sugar

Carefully cut out orange pulp, using a small, sharp knife.  Leave the shells intact. Remove and discard white membranes.  (For a fancy touch, you can scallop the edges of the orange halves with a sharp knife.)

In a small bowl, combine orange sections with blueberries and pineapple. Chill at least 1 hour.  Cover orange shells and chill them separately.

To serve, pile fruit mixture into orange shells.  (If necessary, slice a very thin slice off the bottom of each orange half to keep it from tipping over.)

Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve right away.
