French Toast Casserole
French toast is a brunch classic, but this casserole takes it up a notch.
Instructions: Combine 8-10 slices of bread (preferably day-old) with 6 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 1/2 cup of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture into a greased baking dish and let it sit for at least an hour (or overnight) in the fridge. In the morning, preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 45-50 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
Quiche is a versatile dish that can be customized to your liking.
Instructions: For a classic quiche, combine 1 1/2 cups of milk, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of grated cheese, 1/4 cup of diced ham, 1/4 cup of diced onion, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture into a pie crust and bake at 375°F for 35-40 minutes, until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
A refreshing fruit salad is the perfect addition to any brunch spread.
Instructions: Combine a variety of sliced fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, and mangoes. Add a drizzle of honey and a squeeze of lime juice for extra flavor.
Bacon and Egg Cups
These bacon and egg cups are not only delicious but also easy to make.
Instructions: Grease a muffin tin and line each cup with a slice of bacon. Crack an egg into each cup and bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes, until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chopped chives before serving.
