No matter what the season, brunch is the best meal of the day! From casseroles to quiche, frittatas to muffins, mimosas to fancy coffee recipes, there is an easy brunch recipe on this list perfect for your brunch menu. If you need a recipe for Easter brunch, Mother’s Day, Christmas morning brunch or perhaps for a baby shower or bridal shower, these fabulous brunch ideas are ideal for the day.

Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch. Most brunch meals are eaten late morning to early afternoon. If you go to a restaurant for brunch it is generally served between 11 am – 2 pm. Cocktails may be offered (depending on age and state liquor laws).

While I generally think of brunch as a special occasion thing, the truth is many people have brunch every weekend in their own home – generally Sundays Brunch – it’s not just for the holidays anymore!

In addition to traditional Easter brunch, many people have a Mother’s Day Brunch at home. If you are hosting a baby shower, a brunch is a nice idea (maybe without the alcohol!?) It is also a unique idea for a bridal shower (maybe with more alcohol!?)

On this list of amazing brunch recipes you will find everything from breads, muffins and sweet rolls, to casseroles, frittatas, egg dishes, make-ahead casseroles, slow cooker brunch recipes, main entrees (such as turkey, ham or beef that you would see in a restaurant brunch buffet line), as well as desserts! Mmmm desserts! I have also included a number of fancy coffees, teas, and brunch cocktail recipes on this list.
