Three Simple Brunch Recipes

November 12, 2014 1:39 pm

When you’re planning a brunch for a large group of people, it can be difficult to make sure that everything is done at the same time. Creating large portions of each dish so that everyone can serve themselves makes things much more convenient, and it makes it so that you can sit down and enjoy the meal as well. Here are a few easy-to-serve brunch recipes to try this weekend:

Eggs with Tomato on Toast
To make this sophisticated brunch dish, simply bake the tomato sauce and the egg yolks in a large skillet. When you’re ready to serve, place the skillet on the table and allow guests to serve themselves onto a piece of warm toast.

Potato Chip Frittatas
A creative and accessible take on the beloved frittata, these delicious Spanish creations use potato chips instead of the usual toppings. Bake them in the oven and you’ll have enough frittatas to serve 6 people.

Grapefruit Buttermilk Donuts with Candied Zest
These homemade donuts are anything but your usual glazed dozen. Made with rich buttermilk and flavored with tart, refreshing grapefruit, they’re so delicious that all of your guests will love them, and the recipe is large enough to serve everyone.
