Elevated egg on toast
What would brunch be if there were no eggs and avocado involved?! This is the perfect time to put your aesthetic skills to the test. If you’re lacking inspiration, check out these elevated egg on toast recipes you can recreate for your next weekend Instagram story.
This smoked salmon and avocado breakfast toast looks unreal, served with a pot of beans and topped with some micro greens. If salmon isn’t your thing, try poached egg on toast accompanied with some tomatoes. Something completely different and new, why not go for eggs benedict with bacon and avodaise sauce?!
Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to be delicious!
Granola can be super healthy so if you’re looking for a lighter brunch option, go for this. There’s plenty of recipes online for making it by scratch at home, but i’ve narrowed it down to 3 of my favourite ones that sound seriously yummy.
Coconut, honey and almond granola clusters sound so delicious! Or if you’re more of a vanilla gal, this vanilla and almond granola looks perfect. If you’re looking for more of a twist, why not try this cinnamon toast crunch granola - definitely something different and worth a try. Not to mention it’s vegan and gluten free!
Add yoghurt and some fruit for some finishing touches and your brunch is complete!
A brunch buffet can be the perfect solution if you’re living with multiple people and you’re wanting to have a stress-free brunch. Buy an assortment of different smaller things and lay out however you want. I’ve attached some inspo pics to get you in the buffet mood!
