Now that the weather is warming up (or even if it isn’t, depending on where you live) it’s the perfect time to start hosting Sunday brunches for your family and friends. But what if you’re really busy? The good news is that brunch is the easiest meal to prepare with just a tiny bit of prep!
Looking for easy recipes and meal ideas? Here are five that will be easy for just about anyone:
Overnight Crockpot Casserole
Did you know that you could use your slow cooker or crockpot to serve a crowd and make your morning a little easier? This recipe from Countryside Cravings is a great way to prepare a savory dish that includes potatoes and sausage. Don’t forget to have a little hot sauce and ketchup hand on just in case your guests enjoy it.
Another easy overnight options is to make a bread pudding or an overnight french toast casserole. Check out this recipe from the Food Network’s Ree Drummond.
Have you had quiche before? There’s nothing quite as smooth and satisfying for breakfast. And the good news is that you can make it with a traditional crust, low carb crust, or with something like thinly sliced sweet potatoes as a crust. Best of all, you can use whatever you want to fill it!
Do you enjoy oatmeal? Try making a lot of it in a large pot, like an Instant Pot, that will keep warm. Then use smaller bowls to and fill them with items like: brown sugar, raisins, sliced apples, chocolate chips, etc. Let your guests fill their bowls on their own.
Whether you make them yourself or buy them from a local bakery, remember that everyone loves pastries! Try finding creative ways to display your pastries for added fun.
