Perfect Brunch Recipes

Ellie Hansen, class of 2021.

Brunch is one of my daughter Ellie’s favorite meals. For her graduation from college, she requested that we have a brunch gathering. We planned the menu and our conversation got very animated when we started talking about what constitutes brunch recipes. I thought brunch was kale salads, quiche, mimosas, and tarts. Ellie thinks the perfect brunch is Bloody Marys, mimosas, donuts, and “breakfast foods.” Is lemon blueberry bread pudding breakfast food? We agreed to disagree. (PS – it is!)

Here are some of my favorite brunch staples, as well as a few recipes we made for Ellie’s graduation brunch.
