brunch Mexican style at Dogwood Riverside

Chef Stuart Whyte makes delicious Mexican-inspired brunch at the Dogwood Café at Riverside Golf Course (8630 Rowland Road) Sundays from 9am-3pm. Think breakfast burrito, torta de huevo frito (fried egg sandwich), and their delish take on eggs bennie, huevos benedictos rojas. Perk up your egg dishes at home with Stuart’s pickled red onions.

2½ c white wine vinegar
1 c water
⅛ c sugar
1 T coriander
2 T salt
2 large red onion
1 oz rhum

Bring all ingredients except for the onions to a boil and steep for 10 minutes. Add onions and cook for 3 minutes. Makes about 1 cup. Keeps refrigerated for one month.
