To prepare this brunch menu with Belgian waffles begin about 1 hour ahead and make the fruit compote first. While this is baking in the oven, cook the bacon or sausage and keep warm or reheat in the microwave just before serving.
Prepare the coffee and make a pitcher of orange juice for the mimosas. Whip the cream; sweetening it with a few tablespoons of confectioners (powdered) sugar. Mix up the recipe for the waffles, then set the table with plates, napkins, and glassware.
Heat up your waffle iron and start making the waffles, but don’t call everyone until you have about 4 or more ready or everyone will be waiting. Have your guests start with the fruit compote as you tend to the kitchen. If you are really backed up you can also have your guests make their own mimosas to their liking.
Sound like a lot? Don’t worry. Your menu will all come together. Just save cooking the waffles for last, so they are fresh and hot. It is nice if you have an extra person to help in the kitchen for the other items if someone is offering their assistance.
