A lazy morning, mimosas at noon and a menu that reliably features all our favorite foods…what’s not to love about brunch? Hosting it, on the other hand, can be a little tricky if you don’t have a solid selection of crowd-pleasing dishes in your repertoire. Fortunately, our roundup of brunch recipes has got you covered with fancy updates on sweet favorites (think: French toast sticks), savory show-stoppers like eggs in a basket, and lunchtime staples for anyone craving an expertly prepared sandwich. We’ve got a mix of ambitious baking projects for experienced chefs (hello, chocolate banana bread babka) and hands-off recipes that can simply be thrown together and left to cook while you brew coffee and catch up with guests. Read on and get ready to wow your guests.
