What are some good brunch foods?

This year my family id hosting Brunch for my in laws and I have never made Brunch before so I'm not sure what to make. My husband said in the past when his mom would have brunch she would make egg sandwiches...I want it to be a little fancier than that.

  • really nice bagel selection w/ spreads, salmon, etc. smoothies, muffins, breads...... and you can make some speciality butters to go w. those like a cinnamon butter, a spiced butter, etc

  • I like some sweet; some savory. I would suggest fruit, muffins; bagels ---then some cheese; croissants; jam and a bacon and egg casserole. I think it's wonderful to also include a plate of smoked salmon; capers, onions; creme fraiche and some mimosas! I also used an iced coffee recipe that's serves in a punch bowl.

    Maybe when he said "egg sandwiches" he mean egg salad tea sandwiches----yum! You can have a variety of tea sandwiches --chicken salad; egg salad and cucumber. (this is very southern!)

  • Quiche is always a great brunch idea. You could do just a veggie one and one with meat. Some kind of fruit platter too. Then something a little hardier too like the salmon or a meat tray to make a small sandwich. Have fun! :)

  • Overnight French Toast
    2 large apples - peeled, cored and sliced
    3 Tbsp butter or margarine
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 cup dry sweetener of your choice
    1/4 cup maple syrup
    1 cup apple juice
    1/2 cup plant or animal milk (I use vanilla soy)
    1/2 cup yogurt (I use vanilla)
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    4-6 thick slices of day old bread
    In a saucepan, cook the apples in the butter/margarine until they start to soften. Add the cinnamon, dry sweetener, syrup and cook until the apples are nice and soft. Pour into the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients except bread. Dip the bread into the milk/yogurt mix and layer on top of the apple mix. Pour the remaining milk mixture over the top. Cover and refrigerate.
    In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 F. Uncover the baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes
