One of my goals for 2020 is to take advantage of more hosting opportunities, and what’s a better way than having plenty of small group brunches throughout the year? Of course, hosting many brunches means building lots of menus, so I better start brainstorming ideas! I’ve gathered up a huge selection of recipes from other blogs that I am excited to try out this year.
Start your brunch with an appetizer or small plate. These are tasty bites to get your guests excited for the rest of the meal. You can go sweet or savory here, but make sure it’s something fun, little, and sharable.
Brunch Main Courses
The bulk of your brunch meal is the main course. This should be on theme, and match the rest of the dishes you are serving. Use this course to add a sweet or savory balance, opposite what you used for a small plate.
End the three-course meal on a sweet note, with a fun, gooey, sticky, or syrupy treat. You’ll want to serve just enough to top off the meal, to not overwhelm your guests with sugary treats.
It’s not brunch without a drink. Get creative here, and go with something outside your typical mimosa or bloody mary. Try to complement all three courses by sticking to a specific season or theme. Then keep them flowing!
