Brunch incorporates the best elements of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so it's the ideal combination for anyone who loves all three meals. Here are several menu suggestions so you can decide which type would most appeal to your hungry bunch.
A popular brunch menu includes just-squeezed orange juice and fruit salad bursting with ripe berries, a savory quiche lorraine and a hearty potato bacon casserole, topped off with tangy lemon bars and frothy café au lait.
The die-hard breakfast lover in the group won't complain about missing out on his customary plateful of bacon, eggs and potatoes. He will happily load up on super-sized helpings of an easy-to-make potato bacon casserole, a ham and cheese omelet or frittata, and whole wheat buttermilk pancakes enhanced with cornmeal and honey, and dripping with maple syrup. Breakfast is most definitely served.
For the ladies who lunch, a meal that starts with a delicate quiche lorraine and a fresh fruit salad featuring the best seasonal fruit, and ends with a grande café au lait served à la française in a pretty ceramic bowl is elegant. Another ladies’ favorite is savory onion-dill pancakes topped with thinly sliced smoked salmon and dill sour cream.
Many people firmly believe that the best part of dinner is dessert. As Jerry Seinfeld astutely observed on a classic Seinfeld episode, muffins are really cake that has been sanctioned for breakfast consumption. So dessert lovers at this Easter brunch can savor their cake (orange muffins chock-full of white chocolate morsels and macadamia nuts).
