Enjoy this roundup of my favourite lazy brunch recipes to make your morning extra special! A collection of sweet and savoury recipes from pancakes, smoothies, breakfast skillets and everything in between.
Big breakfasts aren’t just for the weekend, especially around the holidays. It’s time to up your breakfast game, and these epic recipes are here to help you on your way. Embrace that sweet spot after breakfast and before lunch!
And remember, charcuterie boards aren’t just for cheese and crackers! You can create a beautiful and stunning breakfast board, by packing on layers of fresh fruit, granola, stacks of baked goods and more (pictured above). Easy peasy, fresh fruit squeezy! Keep reading for more of my breakfast favs!
I love the fact that these quiches are made with phyllo pastry – a bit lighter and not as much fuss! You can use almost any veggie you have in the house (broccoli, red pepper etc). If a more traditional quiche is up your alley try my Spinach Quiche Lorraine – it’s Charlie’s FAVOURITE!
Italian Shakshuka is one of our favourite brunch dishes that can easily stand in for a quick healthy meatless lunch or dinner and is made in under 30 minutes. Fun to share and filled with flavour, it’s one to add to your breakfast recipe rotation! Plus, isn’t it stunning?!
These scones (or biscuits) double as an air freshener – your house will smell UH-MAZING! Packed with apple flavour with a hint of cinnamon, these are best served straight out of the oven.
Not your average muffin! These Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Muffins are both moist and perfectly sweet. Delicious all year round, you can use any type of berry.
This hash comes together in one pan and is topped with fresh tomatoes, avocados, and cilantro for the perfect one-pan hearty brunch meal! Feel free to get creative, and add in other flavours or breakfast meats that you know you and your family will love!
The prettiest salad ever! So refreshing, showy and healthy. Remember, you can always adjust the recipe to your favourite citrus fruits!
“Hey Google, play Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson!” Stacks of THESE will make your morning – and of course are the perfect way to use up extra bananas. P.S. a dollop of peanut butter on these is amazing!
Gluten free and so delicious, like a fruit-filled custard pancake! This is the perfect brunch treat for you and your crew.
These are healthier than store bought waffles and in my opinion, much more delicious. We doctor ours up with some fresh berries, Greek yogurt, and a touch of maple syrup!
My classic waffle recipe, that has truly stood the test of time (so has my heart shaped waffle maker)!
These savoury Potato Cheddar Chive Waffles are such a fun way to use up leftover mashed potatoes from the holidays (or any dinner for that matter). These waffles make the perfect canvas for an egg, or can simply be dressed up with a little dollop of sour cream or vegan sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and a sprinkle of chives. It’s gourmet without trying too hard!
A childhood classic, this Orange Julius Smoothie is so delicious and refreshing. From the sweetness of the fruit to the creaminess and iciness, this recipe is guaranteed to satisfy your craving for this citrusy drink.
I LOVE these so much – and admittedly doused mine with hot sauce (my weakness). You could also make a batch of Cheryl’s Guacamole or my Pico de Gallo to serve with them, or add a dollop of sour cream if that’s your jam!
Time with my family is so precious, and I LOVE creating special moments any way I can. That’s why I love fun breakfast recipes to cook together, start our day off right (which is allowed to be lazy), and to really take time to enjoy (hopefully in our pajamas).
