Tips For Hosting A Drool-worthy Brunch

Tips For Hosting A Drool-worthy Brunch

Whether it’s Mother's Day, a baby shower, birthday party, or holiday extravaganza, brunch is a popular way to entertain friends and family. Do you have an upcoming brunch on your calendar? Trying to decide what to serve can be overwhelming.

The good news is the name itself “brunch” combines breakfast and lunch so that automatically sets you up for plenty of recipe options. You can go sweet or savory and even throw in drinks and dessert!

Here are some ideas if you’re the one hosting:

Pick a theme. Whether it’s a color, specific ingredient, foods all starting with a certain letter, etc., having a theme can make it extra fun to come up with a list of foods to serve. For example, a Fourth of July brunch could include a variety of red, white and blue foods like these Pancakes with Raspberry Maple SyrupCheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks, and Blueberry Cake Donuts.
Pick a meal (or don’t). If a wide variety of recipe options doesn’t overwhelm you, try to include a good mix of breakfast, lunch, drink and dessert items. If the thought of trying to make all those different kinds of recipes makes you panic, narrow your focus. Choose breakfast and serve up a wide variety of breakfast items for people to enjoy like Maple Cinnamon Rolls, Savory Zucchini Waffles with Cheddar Cheese, and Spinach, Artichoke & Sausage Egg Strata,  so there’s something for everyone!


Make it a potluck! Just because you’re hosting doesn’t mean you have to do all the work. Create a sign-up sheet or a simple email chain and let people share what they’re going to bring. Then just fill in the gaps with some of your personal favorites like this Egg & Veggie Muffin Cups or Vermont Maple Sour Cream Coffee Cake.

Try these simple tips for hosting a stress-free brunch!
