Between Breakfast and Lunch: Brunch

I love breakfast foods. I could them any time of day. I’m not picky – I like eggs, muffins, scones, cinnamon buns, biscuits (with or without gravy), grits, waffles, pancakes, fruit, and the occasional slice of bacon. And coffee. Let’s not forget coffee.

Brunch is  one of my favorite meals to host because the food is pretty low maintenance to prepare, the food can easily be scaled to feed a crowd, and a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning is the perfect time to hang out with family and friends over a leisurely meal.

Earlier this year, I wrote about our family brunch. On the menu in the photo below, we had biscuits and gravy (pork sausage gravy in the big pot, turkey sausage gravy in the small pot), scrambled eggs, yogurt almonds, fresh fruit (raspberries, nectaries, and grapes), and blueberry muffins. And coffee. Let’s not forget coffee.

I’ve also seen some cute ideas for brunch foods on Pinterest. The create-your-own bar seems to be a very popular idea right now: 

Bellini Bar

Top-Your-Own-Yogurt Bar

Top-Your-Own-Oatmeal Bar

Top-Your-Own-Pancakes Bar

Food on a skewer is easy to serve and can be done in lots of different combinations:

Rainbow Fruit Kabobs

Chicken and Waffle Skewers

Blueberry-Strawberry Pancake Skewers

Lemon, Ginger, and Strawberry Pancake Skewers

And anything that can be made ahead, whether a casserole or single serve portions, is a winner for a party food:

Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

Pancake Bites

Mini Egg Omelets

What are some of your favorite brunch foods?

I’m looking forward to planning some fun brunch gatherings in the future with good friends and yummy food. And coffee. Let’s not forget coffee.
