We always have our traditional quiche and a warm goodie like bread pudding but it’s always fun to try something new that hasn’t been on the menu before.
Baby shower brunch recipes are always helpful as well to throw the perfect party since bite sized foods look pretty and add to the decor really.
Let’s start out with a Fall favorite. These pumpkin cinnamon rolls are always a hit.
Easy brunch menu ideas
Many can be made ahead of time. Then you’re not stressed out cooking and baking all the breakfast recipes all at once.
Remember it’s the thought that counts. Remember the moment! 😉
- Bacon Egg and Cheese Bundt Cake
- Air fryer bagels are the bomb
- Chocolate covered strawberries
- Blueberry Pancake Bites with homemade huckleberry jam are great
Think of easy breakfast dishes that can be kept at room temperature when you’re planning things out. For instance a dutch baby is always impressive but sitting out for a while isn’t so great. French toast sticks would stay fresher longer and are much easier to make.
Cooking time is a factor as well. You do NOT want to spend time in the kitchen while the event is going on. Enjoying the get together yourself is important so sweet breads are always a good choice.
- Blueberry pie filling dump cake cupcakes
- Our lemon blueberry loaf is amazing too.
