Weekends Are for Brunching

There’s no better way to follow up a morning of sleeping in than with a brunch buffet complete with delicious dishes such as biscuits and gravy, Eggs Benny, baked French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, fresh fruit, mimosas, and, of course, your favorite family or friends sitting around the table.

Biscuits and gravy is brunch done right. Paula Deen’s Sausage and Bacon Gravy is the perfect topper for her easy-to-make Biscuits. The scrumptious sausage and bacon gravy only takes 5 minutes to prep and 5 minutes to cook, and the light and fluffy biscuits are ready within 30 minutes.

Eggs Benedict is a classic brunch staple that is an indulgent experience perfect for a communal meal filled with casual conversations around the table. Eggs Benedict may be the fanciest dish on the brunch menu but it’s super easy to make at home because it’s prepared in simple steps. Try our Brunch-Worthy Eggs Benedict.

For the French toast lovers in your life Pillsbury’s How to Make French Toast for a Crowd is a great recipe to follow because it frees up time in the kitchen on brunch day. This French toast gets prepped the night before and is baked right before brunch.

Brunch, with all of the multiple dishes, may seem intimidating but it’s not. With a little bit of planning, prepping for brunch can be, for the cook(s), as relaxing as the meal itself. Here are some helpful tips for a stress-free brunch:

  • Setup the buffet table the night before with a tablecloth, plates, silverware, napkins, glasses, coffee cups, etc.
  • If serving Bloody Marys and mimosas, prepare the mixes the night before.
  • Bake the French toast and bacon to minimize time at the stove. Try The Kitchn’s How To Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven.
  • Enlist a friend to help you in the kitchen.
