Weekend Brunch Recipes:
This list is divided into savory brunch recipes, sweet brunch recipes, and recipes you can prepare in advance. Use these recipes to cook up a casual breakfast at home, or to host an elegant meal for guests. I’ve included quick and easy recipes that come together with just 10 minutes of active preparation time along with extra special treats that take a bit more effort.
Savory Weekend Brunch Recipes:
When I think of brunch, I think of eggs. I almost always make (or order!) something savory when I am having brunch. Some of these recipes are inspired by meals at my favorite restaurants – I can never resist eggs benedict or a goat cheese omelet. Other recipes are quick meals that I love to make at home.

Sweet Weekend Brunch Recipes:
Although my go-to brunch is an omelet or a benedict, I need to satisfy my sweet tooth too! While I usually have a savory brunch, I like to have something sweet too. The thing that I love about pancakes is that the leftovers are a great weekday morning meal.
