2. Cheddar Chive Grain-free Pancake Tacos
It’s not really brunch without fluffy pancakes. But rather than go with a traditional stack, try these savory breakfast tacos with pancake shells. Unlike other recipes, these are made with Purely Elizabeth Grain-Free Pancake Mix, which is filled with a blend of beneficial flours (tigernut, coconut and almond) and seeds (chia and flax) to add nutritional protein and fiber. Psst, the mix is paleo-friendly, vegan and gluten-free.
8. Rainbow Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta
Pesto, balsamic vinegar, olive oil and dill (plus a little S&P) come together to marinate classic heirloom tomatoes. Oh, and did we mention the toasted baguette is rubbed with fresh garlic? You’ll have this one on the table in just 15 minutes.
10. Grilled Peach, Prosciutto And Mozzarella Sandwich
We’ve never met a sandwich we didn’t like, but today, we’re looking for love. And this sammie has us over the moon. Grill up some peaches, add a few slices of prosciutto and some fresh mozzarella and you’ve got yourself a gourmet brunch.
