Easy Brunch Food

easy brunch food

Easy Brunch food is a combination of easy to eat items, both sweet and savory. Includes a selection of brunch recipes, planning tips, and ideas for a fun late morning meal. Brunch is not about only having one big item on the menu, like only pancakes or a breakfast casserole.

What makes brunch fun and a bit special is that you get to satisfy all of your taste buds with both sweet, fruity, and savory foods.

Some folks think it is a sign of indecisiveness when you eat brunch. (Pick one – either breakfast or lunch!)


Many people prefer having the addition of savory food items incorporated into the meal, as having only French toast or only waffles for a meal can be too sweet.

You could host a brunch every weekend for a year and not serve the same food twice if you wanted (except maybe bacon…yum!). There is such a variety to choose from and just about anything goes.

One of the nice things about brunch food is that there is almost something on the table to satisfy picky eaters or those with dietary restrictions. If you know that one or more of your guests have a dietary restriction, plan accordingly and serve at least 1-2 items that they can enjoy as well.

Here are a few ideas and resources to get you started…
