What to Watch: A Bottomless Breakfast on The Kitchen and Vintage Dessert Makeovers on Spring Baking Championship
On Saturday morning, Ree Drummond is making an egg-centric breakfast menu, and she’s whipping up her version of classic recipes like Steak and Eggs Benedict with Spicy Hollandaise, Eggs in Tomatoes and Spicy Eggs on Toast. Then, Trisha Yearwood is making a menu inspired by one of her favorite food spots, the co-hosts on The Kitchen and making rich and decadent breakfast recipes, and Valerie Bertinelli is cooking healthier versions of her family’s favorite Italian recipes.
On Sunday evening, four more Triple G winners are returning to Flavortown Market, and their first task is to make a high-end dinner using a hodgepodge of ingredients. Then, on Spring Baking Championship, the five remaining bakers are making over mom’s classic dessert recipes.
Ree's serving up all different types of eggs for breakfast. There's Eggs Benedict and then a fiery version of the classic, Steak and Eggs Benedict with Spicy Hollandaise (pictured). She's making the Best Scrambled Eggs Ever, Pioneer-style, and whipping up Cornmeal Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup. Then, some five-ingredient marvels with Eggs in Tomatoes and Spicy Eggs on Toast, and with just two ingredients is Ladd's favorite, Egg-in-a-Hole. Finally, omelets are the star in Cowboy Breakfast Sandwiches.
Trisha's center stage with her backup singer, Robert Bailey, and she recalls one of her favorite food stops in Portland, Ore. She creates a menu based on her experience, including Filthy Dirty Martinis with Blue Cheese-Stuffed Olives, Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, Cherry Almond Skillet Shortbread (pictured) and a Well-Done Steak with Blue Cheese Compound Butter. After the meal, Trisha and Robert perform a soaring a capella rendition of "How Do I Live."
Katie Lee kicks off the show with Breakfast Mac and Cheese, and Jeff Mauro whips up a decadent German Chocolate French Toast Cake (pictured) for dessert. Then, there are on-the-go breakfast hacks to make your morning routine easier and answers to all your egg-related questions. Plus, Egg Shop chef Nick Korbee joins to make Green Eggs and Ham and the gang offers a new take on the classic Mimosa cocktail.
When Valerie's husband's cousins come to town, she is challenged with converting cousin Mary's favorite Italian recipes into healthier versions, so that Mary can still indulge while staying on a heart-healthy regimen. Valerie makes Cheesy Salami Pie, an Italian Veggie Pie, Crunchy Romaine Salad with a Sweet Sesame Vinaigrette, Pepperoni Pizza Bites with Homemade Marinara Sauce (pictured), and Spumoni.
Four past GGG winners are vying for an instant $10,000 and the last spot in the Supermarket Masters Tournament finale. First, they must make a high-end, old-school dinner that includes the mish-mash of ingredients on Guy's Grocery List. Next, the chefs race against the clock to make a super sandwich and side in just 15 minutes. Then, the last two chefs pick wild cards to determine the international cuisine and comfort dish they must combine to make their finest fusion dish.
It's baking to celebrate mom! To kick off, the five remaining bakers create fruit tarts from the heart in a kaleidoscope of colors and flavors. Next, they give vintage dessert makeovers to "mom classics" like peach cobbler, bread pudding, chocolate cream pie and pineapple upside-down cake.
