There is something so fun about planning a brunch spread for family and friends. There’s no other meal where you can get away with serving savory and sweet alongside one another or where bacon and sausage are the principal meats. You can also involve flavors from all over the world in breakfast foods, like Mexican-style brunch dishes. Salsa verde over eggs? It’s all happening at brunch.

1. Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole from Drizzle Me Skinny

This brunch recipe will have your guests begging for seconds! Using tater tots instead of making breakfast potatoes from scratch saves so much time. But also, who doesn’t love tater tots? There is just something about them. Just imagine how tasty they will become slathered in shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and garlic seasoning!

2. Two Ingredient Dough Cinnamon Rolls by Drizzle Me Skinny

There is no need to bother with yeasted dough, this recipe uses self-raising flour instead. It’s mixed with Greek yogurt, the dairy giving it the softer texture that defines a cinnamon roll. Simply fill with the blend of cinnamon and sugar, and wow your guests with these homemade delights.

3. Sausage and Maple Bacon Biscuit Bake by Drizzle Me Skinny

If you’re not salivating at that name, we can’t be friends. Seriously, this dish will please everyone. Okay, not vegetarians, but everyone else. It’s really easy to make too, as the recipe uses store-bought biscuit dough and adds in the sausage, bacon, eggs, and maple syrup.

4. Fluffy Pancakes by Hot Thai Kitchen

Over in Asia, pancakes are taken to almost souffle levels, meaning they are the fluffiest and most delicious pancakes you will ever taste. I know, IHOP is awesome. But try these out before you come to any rash decisions. Not quite the Japanese-style souffle pancake, these pancakes whisk the egg whites into a meringue before slowly mixing them into the batter. It will change how you do brunch.

5. Breakfast Enchiladas by Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen

Don’t be like me and wait 30 years to try a brunch version of Mexican food. It’ll open up a world of possibilities for more than just these tasty enchiladas. Think breakfast tacos, breakfast burritos, tostadas… This particular recipe combines eggs, bacon, and sausage with a creamy salsa verde sauce. The downside is your guests might never leave!

6. Frittata by Joy Food Sunshine

Every brunch spread needs an egg dish, and this is yours. Eggs are so versatile, meaning you can cater to the tastes of your guests. This recipe can be easily adapted to suit vegetarians, or just add in or omit the ingredients you want. Except for the egg, a frittata needs an egg.

7. Easy Oven Baked Eggs by Food Dolls

Another egg dish perfect for feeding the masses, but completely different from a frittata. Easy oven baked eggs recipe is packed with protein and vitamins and is even anti-inflammatory, thanks to all the spices. The veggies are roasted in all the delicious flavors, and just before they are done the eggs are added so they have just enough time to cook while leaving the yolks nice and runny.

8. French Toast Casserole by Stay At Home Chef

Frying up individual slices of French toast isn’t practical when you have multiple guests. If you still want to serve something french toast style, this casserole is much easier for a crowd. This recipe suggests adding in blueberries, but you cant try it out with any flavors you’d like.

9. Baked Oatmeal by Sally’s Baking Addiction

Oatmeal is a breakfast staple but not usually seen on a brunch menu. However, if you want to offer a healthier option, baked oatmeal is a good choice. It’s not as gooey as regular oatmeal, so serve it in slices. And it’s way more delicious!

Basic Granola is another healthy option for brunch, as the added sugar in this recipe is low. Homemade granola is always going to be healthier, but it’s also more versatile as you can add or omit nuts, seeds, and dried fruit if you’d like. This recipe gives you a basic recipe and suggests a ton of add-ins.

11. Chocolate Oat Almond Waffles by Smiling Notes

Sugar-free and gluten-free – how is it possible they taste good? The key is using a yummy alternate flour, here the recipe calls for almond flour and oat flour. Honey is also used to sweeten, instead of processed or refined white sugar.

12. Weight Watchers Egg Muffins by Mess for Less

13. Sausage and Potato Breakfast Hash by Wonky Wonderful

If ground sausage and fried potatoes are your jam, Sausage and Breakfast hash is a must-have menu item. Sausages generally don’t need much seasoning because they have a lot of flavor in their own right, so it’s a pretty simple recipe. It’s also super delicious if you top it with shredded cheese or eggs at the end of frying.

14. Spinach and Mushroom Crustless Quiche by Budget Bytes 

Simple and healthy, Spinach and Mushroom Crustless Quiche dish is great if you want to mix it up from a breakfast casserole dish.

It’s very easy to change out the fillings if you prefer a different cheese or vegetable.

15. Blueberry Oat Muffins by Savory Nothings

A great grab-and-go option for a brunch. By grab-and-go, I mean grab-and-chat! Some people prefer snacky items so it’s easier to mingle. These blueberry muffins are delicious and healthy. They use ingredients like Greek yogurt and honey, combined with oats for nice slow-burnt energy release.

16. Breakfast Cookies by Sally’s Baking Addiction

Another option for a more snack-type brunch food is a breakfast cookie. Easy to eat while chatting, but full of sustenance.

17. Breakfast Apple Crumble by Her Highness Hungry Me

Traditionally a dessert dish, but you could say that a lot of the best brunch dishes are more like dessert than breakfast.
