So you want to have the gang over for Sunday brunch...have you thought about what you are going to cook? Preparing a huge meal can be exhausting but not with these brunch recipes for a crowd.
Many of these brunch favorites can be prepared ahead of time and warmed up just before everyone arrives. Aside from providing you with an arsenal of delectable brunch recipes for a crowd we also offer serving tips and tricks for entertaining like a pro.
Here's what to make for brunch:
Eggs are essential to any brunch and it's a good idea to serve them already portioned. That's why we love this Spanish-style omelette which can be served at room temperature and cut in various shapes and sizes. Unlike a quiche, you won't have to bother with making a crust. Score!
Muffins are a great go-to for feeding a crowd because they are incredibly simple to make. Try this exquisite blueberry muffin recipe inspired by Bree Van De Kamp from the popular series Desperate Housewives. Serve in a basket lined with a cloth napkin to make them look extra special.
BACON AND EGG PIE
Here's a great brunch recipe for a crowd that's perfect for bacon lovers: a four-ingredient savory pie layered with eggs, bacon and crispy puff pastry. This easy recipe is best kept warm until serving time.
MEDITERRANEAN QUINOA SALAD
It's always a nice idea to include some type of salad in your brunch offerings. This Mediterranean quinoa salad is an excellent choice because it keeps well. Make it a day in advance and stash it in the fridge until serving time. Serve it in a big bowl so guests can help themselves. Be sure to garnish it with fresh herbs for extra oomph.
Aside from having a pitcher or two of Bloody Marys on standby, offer your guests other refreshing alternatives. They'll love this alcohol-free pink punch made with tonic water, lime, grapefruit juice, honey and mint. Sangria is another wonderful option.
