Brunch technically falls between breakfast and lunch, but I’m all about making brunch the best meal of the day. Period.

If you’re hosting a brunch, what are you going to serve?

A popular trend is to throw a baby shower or bridal shower brunch. If you’re here looking for ideas, check out the European breakfast bar on a budget – a low-fuss option for feeding a crowd, buffet-style, with some delicious European breakfast favorites.

The make-ahead breakfast egg cups are easy to make and crowd-pleasing. You can make these ahead of time.

The extra crispy oven-roasted breakfast potatoes are always a good idea – whether you’re making them for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!

For more show-stopping recipes, check out the breakfast empanadas, aebleskiver (Danish pancakes) or breakfast croquettes. These are a little more hands-on, but worth it – especially if the rest of your menu is make-ahead.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a great brunch. For the most part, brunch menu items are pretty affordable – eggs, toast, sausage, fruit, etc. The key is to focus on a smaller number of dishes that incorporate budget-friendly food items. Have fun, and happy brunching!
