Breakfast and Brunch
April 2000 – Sunday brunch – what a treat!
Whether it’s a weekly family occasion or a special get together with friends, there are so many food options.
The basics are great weekend fare – bacon and eggs, French toast, pancakes, waffles. Dress up your pancakes or waffles with some fresh fruit for a delicious presentation.
For bigger brunch get togethers you can serve some savory dishes along with some pastries. Here are some of my favorite brunch dishes, which are great on their own or as part of a brunch buffet.
It’s a beautiful morning!
Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
Making your own granola is simple – you can vary the ingredients to your own taste and dietary requirements.
Delicious waffles – crispy on the outside and soft on the inside – a great weekend breakfast treat.
A faster way to make delicious cinnamon buns – a larger quantity of yeast leads to a quicker rise.
Baked Apple French Toast
Tasty make ahead French toast with apples – prepare it the night before and bake in the morning.
Some people like leftover pizza for breakfast. Why have leftover pizza when you can make a special pizza just for breakfast, complete with scrambled eggs and sausage or bacon.
