These are a few of my favorite things!  You know the song… Raindrops on roses…and yes, there have been a few raindrops in the area, which is a very good thing!

One of my fun favorite places for brunch is, The Bull Valley Roadhouse in Port Costa, California.

Main Ingredients

Now, Port Costa is not a place you will drive by.. No, you need to plan to go there as it is not by any freeway.  Even though it is only 45 minutes from the bay area.  What is so delightful about the teeny tiny town of Port Costa is that the downtown looks as if it stayed still since the Wild, Wild West Days.

See just 7 minutes!

Including Bull Valley Roadhouse. Except the food is not as it was back then.   There are not a lot of vegetarian brunch choices at Bull Valley Roadhouse, and that’s ok.  Several of my family, my niece Ashley (Dr Ashley) and Claudette, my sister-in-law usually get our own creation- Polenta with poached eggs and greens.

Poaching ingredients

It is so yummy! My favorite brother Roger and yes (I can call him my favorite brother since he is the only brother I have :))  He usually will get some fabulous waffle combo.

Eggs poaching

 

You may be thinking, oh polenta takes too much time, stirring all that work!  Polenta is so fast in the Instant Pot.  It cooks without stirring in 7 minutes!

While the Instant Pot is doing a ‘natural vent” process you can poach your eggs (you can make them whatever doneness you want) and sauté your organic baby greens and there you go!
