It’s the weekend and we’re taking a break from the typical lunch and dinner menus we have been curating so far. Festivities have probably also had us all overfed and we are looking to break the monotony with something different, refreshing and a spread that you can decide how much you want to indulge in. Brunch is a wonderful option for days like this. Falling right in the twilight zone between a lazy breakfast and a leisurely weekend lunch, it allows for enough space to either nibble on a bunch of things or indulge on your favourites. The best part? Space is out and spread it over a few hours and you can skip lunch all together, freeing up time to catch up on your reading, spend time with friends, take a long nap or even just veg out in front of the television. That’s what weekends are about, right? This weekend menu will put you in the mood for brunch!
Covering all the essentials that make up for breakfast and lunch, this brunch menu hits the spot right through. A refreshing hot or cold beverage, a hearty selection of eggs, some brunch favourites and of course something sweet for a fitting finale. Get your brunch table ready and gather your family for this one, they’re not going to want to miss it!
Refreshing drinks can either be hot or cold, and depending on the preferences of your family you can choose from a healthy Green Apple Spinach Refresher, Masala Chai to invigorate your senses or a sweet, cool Banana Date Smoothie for an energy fix to kick start your day.
Eggs are a wonderful option that work out well for breakfast and lunch. Filling, nutritious and so versatile, allowing for a whole range of preparations of every cuisine too. Try Skillet Potato and Eggs if you want to keep it simple, or Baked Beans Shakshuka if you’re craving a spicy, curry-like dish to mop up with toast or bread, or keep it straightforward with a simple twist on omelete with this Masala Frittata.
It doesn’t qualify as brunch if you haven’t loaded up on a comforting portion of carbs. Add to it the possibility of a warm, freshly baked dish straight out of your oven, and you have hit the jackpot. These Whole Wheat Waffles will please kids and adults alike. You could also try this Breakfast Potato Quiche that is hearty and simple. Parmesan and Herb Scones for something slightly sophisticated but perfect for brunch.
Right before you rush off to take that long Sunday siesta, you’re going to want to lace the meal with something sweet. These Fruit And Granola Breakfast Wraps are delicious and filled with fruity goodness. Or you could try this Baked Pumpkin French Toast. And if you’re more for the light calorie-free dessert kind try this Oats And Yoghurt Parfait.
