Brunch is better than breakfast because you get to sleep in, and the dishes go way beyond your average breakfast dish. So, I’ve rounded up a bunch of brunch recipe ideas – some sweet and some savory so you can mix and match to create a delicious spread for the weekend or a holiday celebration.
Baked French Toast Casserole
Easy make-ahead baked French toast casserole is great for a holiday breakfast or brunch. It’s easier to make than regular French toast – no flipping pieces on the stove! just assemble everything in a baking pan the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning
Homemade granola is easy to make and so much better than store-bought. This version is crispy and chewy, with each bite studded with white chocolate and chopped walnuts. Use it to make yogurt parfaits for a fun breakfast treat.
These bakery-style banana walnut muffins are of the extra-large variety with a sweet, buttery streusel and chopped walnuts. They’re what you might order at a coffee shop, but better because they’re homemade. You get the added bonus of filling your house with a warm aroma that you only get when you crank up the oven and bake something sweet.
Salsa verde eggs is an easy breakfast recipe that takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish. Warm corn tortillas topped with eggs cooked in salsa verde just until the whites are set. Add some crumbled cheese, sliced avocado, and cilantro to finish them.
This blueberry breakfast casserole is perfect for a holiday brunch or breakfast. It’s made with blueberry bagels, cream cheese, and frozen blueberries that bake together in a rich custard. The top is toasty, and the inside is custardy-soft. Plus, you can assemble it the night before and pop it in the oven the next day.
This Dutch baby is an easy way to satisfy a pancake craving without standing at the stove flipping batches of pancakes in a pan. It’s a baked pancake that has a rich custard-like texture with puffy, crispy edges and flavor and a lightly tangy flavor from the buttermilk. It’s easy to make, goes with all the pancake toppings, and is a pretty centerpiece for breakfast or brunch.
