Tips for Choosing Easy Recipes for Brunch

Easy recipes for brunch should be simple to create, easy on the eyes and, above all, delicious and satisfying. The best part of brunch is that you can serve almost anything. The number-one rule is to make sure you have enough food for everyone. Because brunch can be served anytime between 10 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon, your guests will probably be hungry.

Creating Brunch Foods
Make breakfast foods pull double duty. For an easy weekend brunch, take breakfast foods such as sliced ham and sausage, and think of ways to incorporate them into both a breakfast and a lunch dish. For instance, fry the sliced ham, and serve it with scrambled eggs and as a sandwich accompaniment to thick slices of French bread.

The same can be done with sausage links. After the sausage links have been fried, place half the links in a warming dish, and wrap the other half with crescent rolls. Bake them in the oven according to the crescent roll package directions, and serve with honey mustard dip.

Eggs can be fried or scrambled, made into omelets, soft-boiled and left in the half shell, or hard-boiled and made into deviled eggs. Eggs can also be used to create French toast, and French toast is excellent when used in a grilled cheese and ham sandwich.

Ending With Flair
If you want to serve only one dish with a few sides, go for it. Then, when it comes to dessert, dazzle guests with something that's both beautiful to behold and sinfully delicious.

Tart lemon desserts always go over well. A tart lemon dessert could be as simple as lemon meringue pie or lemon squares. Chocolate is another sweet taste that seems to complement any dish.

Perhaps you want to serve your favorite tiramisu dish or a fantastic fried ice cream recipe with chocolate and caramel sauce drizzled over the top. While smooth, creamy and light goes a long way after a heavy meal, there is so much more to be said about a rich dessert. To satisfy all diners, create two desserts: One light and one decadent. Let your guests choose whether or not they want to be good.
