Any combination of pork and eggs makes for a satisfying brunch, but if you're looking for something a little different, try this take on the classic combination. Lean pork chops are treated with a brown sugar and paprika rub, then cooked in butter, and finished with bourbon. The resulting sweet and savory glaze is only improved by a topping of runny fried eggs.

If you're trying to take a break from carbs after the holiday season, then simply serve this brunch as-is. Otherwise, I'd recommend a side of home fries or any sort of potato that would soak up any leftover egg yolk that happens to get left behind on your plate.
