20 of the Best Sunday Brunch Recipes to Start the Day With

Looking to plan a Sunday brunch this weekend? Here are 20 delicious recipes that everyone is sure to love.

 

Whether you’re brunching to celebrate, entertain guests, or gather friends at the table, brunch can be everything from a simple hash using leftover meat and veggies to a phantasmagoric four-course feast.

Many breakfast staples like French toast, yogurt parfaits, and various egg dishes are usually part of a brunch spread, but just about anything can work for brunch time: pasta and fruit salads, lightened favorites like breakfast pizza, and protein-packed plates like steak and eggs.

If you plan it right, and these 20 recipes will help, you can enjoy the meal again as leftovers on Monday morning.

Enjoy! 

Appetizers 

Roasted Strawberry Coconut Yogurt Parfaits

It doesn’t take much effort to put together a parfait, but the payoff is a healthy snack that’s every bit as sweet as dessert. But for a brunch, you can take it to the next level by roasting the fresh fruit.

It’ll also impress guests at the table if you make granola from scratch – which you can luckily do way ahead of time. For a low-sugar vanilla almond granola that will taste great in this recipe, try this one from Sally’s Baking Addiction (used to calculate the nutrition facts below).

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) non-fat plain Greek yogurt, divided

6 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut

1 pint strawberries, hulled and halved

1/2 Tbsp. pure honey

1 cup low-sugar granola

It’s not a decadent brunch without lox in the lineup, whether you’re having it on plain bagels with cream cheese or on top of a quick appetizer.

To make these, you have to do little more than slice a cucumber. Then spread on some Greek yogurt, dill, and capers. Finish with smoked salmon, and you’ve got an incredible appetizer. Seriously, it’s so good you can eat the whole batch for a lazy Sunday brunch.

Serves 4 / Makes 24

Ingredients

1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt

1 Tbsp. capers, chopped

1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill

24 English cucumber slices, about 1/4” thick

Polish Summer Salad

This recipe is from Salad Samurai: 100 Cutting-Edge, Ultra-Hearty, Easy-to-Make Salads You Don’t Have to Be Vegan to Love by Terry Hope Romero. It uses ingredients you’d expect to find a salad from Poland, including beets, white beans, and fresh dill. But this Polish salad also has a surprise: soba noodles. Although they’re associated with Japan, soba noodles are simply made from buckwheat.

Bacon, Spinach & Egg Pizza

You can make a pizza with breakfast toppings, but why not turn a regular pizza into breakfast?

By adding an egg on top – soft yolk and all – it takes just a second to upgrade spinach pizza to breakfast pizza. And if that’s not enough, there’s also crispy turkey bacon. It pairs well with the mix of fontina and gruyere, although you can use about any cheese you have on hand with an equally delicious result.

Serves 4

Breakfast Pizza:

4 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Handful of fresh baby spinach, chopped

Steak & Eggs Benedict

Treat yourself to an out-of-this-world brunch without trading protein for carbs.

This steak is slathered in bernaise sauce, which is basically a lot butter, egg yolks, and white wine. So you might want to opt for a smaller serving, or go with a light touch when drizzling on the sauce. Of course, you could also make breakfast dreams come true and double the steak.

Serves 4

Steak & Eggs:

6 oz. steak

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1 Tbsp. oil

2 English muffins, lightly toasted

Ham & Eggs Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burritos are the easiest way to upgrade scrambled eggs into a complete breakfast. If you’re serving burritos for brunch, though, they’d better be off the charts. So don’t skimp on the fillings.

This one is stuffed with mushrooms, eggs, sour cream, ham, tomato, and mozzarella cheese. Serve with salsa, hot sauce, guacamole – or all three.

You can enjoy waffles and not even miss the maple syrup and whipped cream. The trick is go to savory instead of sweet.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Side Dishes 

Raspberry Mint Lemonade Salad

This easy fruit salad is a stunner. It both looks and tastes so amazing, nobody will notice you did little more than dice the avocados and toss all the ingredients in a bowl. Along with the fruit, there’s mint leaves, chopped walnuts, fresh lemon, and a spoonful of maple syrup. And add a pinch of cayenne for a little kick.

Serves 4

Ingredients

3 cups fresh organic raspberries

1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

1/2 avocado, diced

1/3 cup raw walnuts, chopped

Corned Beef Breakfast Hash

Whether you have leftover corned beef from dinner, or picked some up from your neighborhood deli, it’ll be delicious in this hearty hash. It’s a classic breakfast with meat, potatoes, onions, garlic, and bell pepper.

And if you want eggs too, all you have to do is crack them right into the pan. Cook until the whites are firm but the yolks are runny, and then use a sturdy spatula to carefully slip them out of the pan.

Serves 5

Ingredients

3 Tbsp. butter

2 1/2 cups potatoes, small dice

3/4 cup onion, finely diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 red onion, sliced very thin

Cream Cheese Grits

cream-cheese-grits-recipe Picture courtesy of Spicy Southern Kitchen

One Southern breakfast staple is cheesy grits, but chances are you’ve had them with a semisoft cheese like cheddar. Using cream cheese instead will be equally delicious. The result is a thick, stick-to-your-ribs version of grits.

And for those who don’t usually like the texture, the creaminess of these grits may sway them over to the other side.

Serves 6

Ingredients

3 cups water

2 1/2 cups milk

1 1/4 cups stone-ground grits

1 1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground white pepper

1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce

3 Tbsp. cream cheese, room temp.

Grilled Tomato & Broccoli Pasta Salad

healthy-pasta-salad-recipe Picture courtesy of My California Roots

There’s nothing like pasta salad for a fantastic brunch. That’s because you can make it the day before!

To serve, just pull it out of the fridge, uncover the dish, and stick a big spoon inside so everyone can help themselves. The main prep requires hardly any work anyway – chop up the broccoli, and boil water on the stove. While you wait for the pasta to cook, you’ll have time to measure out the ingredients for homemade balsamic vinaigrette. And if you make extra, you’ll have some for weekday lunches too.

Serves 6

Ingredients

Pasta Salad:

1 1/2 lb. cherry tomatoes

2 lb. baby broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 lb. whole-wheat pasta of choice

1/4 cup (1 oz.) grated Parmesan, for serving

Balsamic Vinaigrette:

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1/4 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. Italian herbs

Jicama Home Fries

healthy-home-fries-recipe Picture courtesy of Healthy Eton

It can be hard to imagine breakfast without potatoes, but thanks to a bit of paleo creativity, you can enjoy a healthy hash using jicama instead.

Pound for pound, jicama has half the calories and carb content of potatoes. That aside, the nutritional content is similar. Both potatoes and jicama are good sources of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and phytonutrients that act as antioxidants.

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 medium jicama (about 2 1/2 cups), peeled and diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 onion, diced

4 baby portobello mushrooms, diced

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. oregano

1/4 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, minced

Desserts 

Nutella Sandwich Cookies

nutella-cookies-recipe Picture courtesy of A Beautiful Mess

After an amazing brunch of pasta salad, smoked salmon, and a savory hash, not everyone will have room for a big dessert. Rather than digging into a plate of crepes or a large scone, diners with less of a sweet tooth may prefer a small bite like this butter cookie sandwich with chocolate hazelnut filling.

On the other hand, it might be good to have double desserts if you’re having a no-holds-barred cheat meal brunch.

Serves 12

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Middle of the Cinnamon Roll Muffins

cinnamon-roll-muffins-recipe Picture courtesy of Framed Cooks

Cinnamon buns are tempting, but they’re also over 500 calories. Instead, cut to the chase by baking the best part: the soft, doughy center.

These muffins don’t skimp on the glaze, so they really capture the cinnamon roll experience. Yet, they slash the total calories in half so you can strike a balance between restraint and indulgence.

Serves 12

Ingredients

Cinnamon Muffins:

1/3 cup butter, softened

1 large egg

1 1/4 cups flour

1 1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

blueberry-french-toast-recipe Picture courtesy of The Food Charlatan

When you want dessert for breakfast, nothing beats French toast doused in syrup. And if that’s the way you prefer to brunch, it’s possible for French toast to be even more enjoyable by making it ahead of time

A few hours before baking, slice the bread (preferably on the stale side), and lay it out in a casserole dish. Pour the eggy mixture over the top, and leave it in the fridge. Then a half hour before brunch, mix together a cinnamon blueberry syrup, and pop it all in the oven.

Serves 6

Ingredients

8 oz. French bread

4 large eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. vanilla extract

4 1/2 cups blueberries

Bacon Chocolate Chip Scones

Everything you love about brunch is in this one maple-chocolate pastry. And yes, that means there’s really bacon in the mix too!

These aren’t going to be part of anyone’s diet plan, but they’re a good reason to forget about macros for just one meal. Having an indulgence every now and then is necessary for sustainable long-term healthy eating habits.

Serves 8

Ingredients

2 cups flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

Paleo Crepes with Strawberries

Paleo-crepe-recipe Picture courtesy of Tea Biscuit

Flourless crepes? That sounds like an oxymoron since crepe batter is made from eggs, milk, butter, and flour. But it’s possible to make wheat-free, gluten-free crepes with a mix of flour alternatives.

If you used only coconut flour, the result would be too cakey to qualify as crepes. That’s where arrowroot flour comes in, creating a finer texture and adding a bit of fluffiness.

Serves 6

Ingredients

1/3 cup coconut flour

1/3 cup arrowroot flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. pure honey

3 large eggs

1/2 cup coconut milk

2 cups fresh strawberries, chopped

1 can full-fat coconut milk, refrigerated overnight to separate the cream

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

    Turkey + Smashed Peas sarnies.

    For this sort of thing I prefer marrowfat peas. They have a really thick consistency when mashed up. Nice and spreadable. In the UK you can get them tinned, either whole or ready smashed (known here as mushy peas). They’re surprisingly high in protein and low in fat (6% and 1% respectively) and go well with a little freshly ground pepper and a splat of Worcester sauce.

    My local fish and chip shop sells mushy pea fritters. Not that I *ever* go into my local fish and chip shop. No sir, not me, not ever, and I was only told about the fritters…

    • Good to know! Thanks for sharing.

      Lol. No worries on the fish and chip shop. :p

  • Howard

    Mmm all of these look great. Sunday brunch has got to be one of the best meals of the week. I visited Orlando in May with the family and discovered the delights of Dennys and Perkins. Unbelievable choice i was like a kid in candy store. Could not wait for breakfast every morning. I blew up like a beach ball but so worth it. Will be giving one of these a try this weekend.

    • Glad you like them!

      Yep, Perkins and Denny’s every where down here. NOT calorie friendly haha.

      • Howard

        Yep your right there.I tried to stick with the healthy fit slam I think it was called most mornings but it didn’t work. Was the heaviest I had been in 10 years when I got back from Florida lol. Loved it though want to see more of the place.

        • Lol. If you have trouble putting on weight, Perkins and Denny’s can help. That’s for sure.

          Glad you had fun though man!

  • Troy Starkey

    I have to stop looking at your recipes, my worms are now chewing the stomach lining!! I will definitely have to try most of them over the next few months, if only they were in your books that i have already bought. Oh well, I’ll just have to make a PDF/eBook from the website. Thanks for the share!

    • That sucks. 🙁

      Get those taken care of and then LMK how you like the recipes when you try them!

      • Troy Starkey

        Metaphoric worms. You know the hunger pains and growls when you see awesome food 😉

  • Gary Lewis

    These foods look awesome, even after buying your ‘Shredded Chef’ book. Am slowly trying your things out for better choices of higher protein foods. Chicken, greens and sweet potatoe gets a bit boring after a while. You have enriched me tons of ‘can’t wait’ to try ideas. Love it. Cooking my own gear is something now to look forward to after work and workouts, with phone propped up in the kitchen to follow your instructions! Awesome, but hey, something to bear-in-mind, given you are on the otherside of the pond to us in the UK, somtimes just a few odd things are not common to us as in your supermarkets and no doubt vice-versa. Example, one of our mainstream supermarket has never heard of or stocks Fontina Cheese, so anything which seems a bit ‘special’ or diiferent from mainstream, could be useful mentioning as an ‘or use’ – just a thought. As a ‘Newbie’ to weight workouts to gain strength and muscle, I am soaking up your articles like a sponge! Great stuff. We don’t seem to have as much good advice and ideas over here, at least nothing I’ve found yet. It’s all in one place with you.

    • Thanks Gary! I’m glad to hear it. 🙂

      Ah yeah I’ll definitely keep that in mind. Maybe our UK peeps can post here in the comments on the substitutions?
