Make-Ahead Brunch Ideas
Even though breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, it’s often the hardest. Why?
We’re often running late and just trying to get out the door. Who has time to fix something that is actually good for you?
But you CAN become a morning person if you have a plan and know what to make for breakfast!
With over 90 breakfast and brunch recipes, there’s something here for everyone. From quick & easy grab and go breakfast ideas to make-ahead weekend brunch menus, you’re sure to find a new family favorite.
Best Breakfast Recipes
Busy weekday mornings require simple breakfast recipes. But simple doesn’t have to mean boring! From healthy oatmeal raisin muffins to quick egg recipes for breakfast, we’ve got loads of ideas for quick and flavorful ways to start the day.
Tip: Breakfast smoothie recipes are one of our favorite ways to enjoy an easy, healthy breakfast. Never been a smoothie fan before? Maybe you haven’t tried the right one.
Our coffee breakfast smoothie and our spinach banana smoothie are both packed with nutritious ingredients that will jumpstart your day and keep you going until lunchtime. Plus they can be made in advance and frozen so a healthy breakfast is ready whenever you are.
Brunch Menu Ideas
Weekends are relished for their slower pace. We enjoy sleeping a little later and taking our time in the mornings. So it makes perfect sense that what is served at brunch usually involves a little more TLC than a weekday breakfast.
But that doesn’t mean that hosting brunch means spending hours in the kitchen! Our easy brunch recipes offer substitutions and make-ahead tips that make serving brunch nearly effortless.
Tip: Hosting a larger group for brunch? This Overnight Breakfast Casserole recipe is made with sausage, serves 12 people and can be completely prepped the night before.
Not an egg fan? Our Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal is perfect for a crowd. Packed with apples and cinnamon, a large, warm pan of this oatmeal brings sleepy heads to the table quickly.
Don’t forget the Brunch Cocktails
No brunch is complete without easy brunch cocktails!
A DIY Bloody Mary Bar is a perfect way to serve a crowd without playing bartender during your party. Set up a buffet of bloody mary ingredients so guests can serve themselves and create their own perfect brunch cocktail – either with or without alcohol.
