Here's What We're Making for New Year's Brunch


Start your 2019 off right and try your hand at a new recipe (or two... or seven). Then go ahead and show off your #BrunchGoals spread!

1. Build-Your-Own Breakfast Sammies

Buttermilk biscuits reach a whole new level of awesome when you stuff ‘em with, basically, a whole breakfast. Plus, your guests can do some of the work. Set out ham, bacon, eggs and cheese and let the sandwich magic happen.

2. A New Spin on French Toast

This treat from Julie Chrisley has the sweet flavors you love in French toast, but in a plentiful (and easily shareable) dish. It’s also easy to bake ahead the night before, so you save precious prep time in the morning!

3. A Savory, Shareable Tart

Another make-ahead win! This creamy, cheesy, veggie-filled tart not only tastes amazing, but will make your brunch totally #InstaWorthy.

4. Classic Coffee Cake

What’s a brunch without coffee cake? Grab a ring pan, mix up some streusel and master the glaze topping for this beloved classic.

5. No-Hassle Belgian Waffles

One and done! One bowl, that is. Just whisk your ingredients together and fire up your waffle iron — you’ll be chowing down in minutes.

We are 100% here for Belgian waffles. Who could resist that crisp exterior, tender inside and deep pockets for catching maximum syrup? But sadly, these wonders of brunch seem to get a bad wrap for being hard to make. We say, no more! You're one bowl away from waffle stardom.

6. Take a Healthy Route

Start your healthy New Year’s resolution on Day One with B-E-A-utiful smoothie bowls. Make ‘em vegan, make ‘em gluten free, make ‘em however you want — your body will thank you.

Healthy, delicious and soooo easy to make... you don't need us to tell you smoothies are awesome. But lately it's the smoothie bowl that really has our hearts. Maybe it's because they seem a little more grownup than the straw-slurping standby, or maybe it's because they make us feel like we're eating ice cream sundaes for breakfast. Either way, it's a win.

7. All the Flavor, Without the Booze

There’s a chance you might want to go easy on the sips the day after a big New Years Eve party... and that’s where these mocktails come in. Choose between peach and pineapple, or make a batch of both!

Everything's better at brunch, right?! And while mimosas are the meal's classic go-to, there are times when champagne is a no-go. (Especially when you're with friends who don't drink, mamas-to-be, kids, etc. ... you get it!)
