This moist whole grain doughnut is baked with sauteed apples and cinnamon right on top. It’s like dessert for breakfast or breakfast for dessert. Either way, it’s a wonderful way to start your holiday morning.
It doesn’t get much simpler than a two-ingredient recipe. Chilled cantaloupe and watermelon are pureed and topped with your choice of garnishments like cilantro, mint, or feta cheese for a delightfully surprising brunch appetizer.
This savory pancake is a hearty way to rethink this brunch staple, all while giving your guests a boost of fiber and antioxidants. Our original creation for NatureBox can be made with dairy ingredients that are easily substituted for a vegan version.
It’s not all waffles and omelets at brunch, the luxury of this mid-day meal is blending foods that otherwise would never see the light of day together. That’s why this chicken pot pie empanadas make a perfect brunch addition. This original creation for Fit Bottomed Eats packs everything you love about this winter classic into a flaky hand-held pastry.
Just three ingredients and half an hour are all you need to make a fresh, homemade jam that will brighten the center of any brunch spread. The earliest strawberries are coming in to season, so this sweet condiment will be perfect for topping those blue corn pancakes.
Both of these homemade salad dressings are fat free and under 30 calories per serving, and we did it with fat free Greek yogurt and feta cheese. Use the Cilantro Lime variation to dip veggies or the Strawberry Basil variation to dip fruit, or either can top a fresh tossed salad.
Eggs, avocados, and 15 minutes are the ingredients for this very unique brunch recipe. Hollow the center of an avocado, crack an egg (if the bunny didn’t hide them all), and bake in the oven until cooked through. It’s fresh, light, and full of healthy fats and protein.
