If you love breakfast foods as much as I do then you are going to go crazy over brunch! It’s the same type of meal but even better! There are more options (it’s more like a potluck) PLUS I can sleep in before eating! It’s a win-win! I also love that brunch is usually some sort of event. People are invited and you hang out and eat fancy breakfast foods. Brunch recipes are my favorite so it really doesn’t get much better than that!

Brunch has so many different options for food! Breads, muffins, eggs, smoothies, basically you name it and a brunch will have it.

Because brunch recipes are everywhere, I decided to round up my very favorites so that you have a landing page for all of the best. These brunch recipes are a wide variety of sweet and savory so that there is something for everyone! Make a choice and start baking, I know you will love it!

Brunch Tips

If you want to host a spectacular brunch, I have come up with a few suggestions to take it to the next level. These brunch recipes are simple and easy to make and add in these tips and you will have yourself a meal to remember!

  • Variety: The key to having a successful brunch is going to be making sure that your brunch recipes have a lot of variety When picking the recipes, make sure to have a little bit of everything!
  • Theme: You can have a theme like muffins, bread or eggs and stick with only those dishes. Just make sure that you have a bunch of different recipes for that before you start. For example, if you decide to have a brunch made up of all muffins, have 5-6 different muffin recipes ready so that there is something for everyone!
  • Make it a potluck: Assign everyone who is coming to brunch a category. Then, you will still have a variety of dishes but you won’t have to cook them all yourself!
