Pulling off a halfway decent brunch at home can end up being an intimidating task. With my 283,298 brunch pictures pinned to a dedicated Pinterest mood bard, believe me when I say I can understand how putting together a brunch spread is not as easy as it looks.
We’ve all had our respective experiences with food expectations vs reality, but to help ease the scarring of that, I’ve found out a few good tips on how you can kill it with making your own brunch at home.
Easy On The Eggs
Always – I repeat – ALWAYS cook your eggs with a low heat. As tempting as it may be to hurry the cooking process up, the last thing you want is having a mouth full of burnt baby chickens to start off the day. Opt for a simple cook, like scrambled, or a bullseye.
The addition of freshly cut fruits can liven up the look and feel of a brunch plate instantly! Plus, it’s a healthy option, and a great way to colour some texture into your morning palette.
Salty AND Sweet
I know, I know – it’s not exactly for everyone, but I promise, if you have the right foods, the combination is mind blowing! Ever tried jam on eggs? :9
Wake And Bake
Baking a small wheel of cheese is an extremely simple way to to sophisticate your brunch spread! Just stab in some sprigs of rosemary into a camembert or brie, pop it into the oven until it gets nice and gooey, and serve with toast. Don’t forget to line your tray with parchment/foil!
Ready your oats the night before, because why not? Switch it up by adding a little cocoa powder and honey!
When All You Need Is Bae(gel)
Ah, the bagel – so good it even got Batman Beyond to come up with a new slang word to describe its deliciousness. You can eat it plain toasted, with peanut butter, turn it into a sandwich of your liking, or even…. A PIJJA. No, seriously.
