    Yum! Crepes sound delicious, especially ones that would satisfy a sweet tooth 🙂

    I love brunch, but since it’s going to be day after – make it easy on yourself. I suggest quiche, because you can make them ahead of time and they  reheat well, a fruit platter, and some muffins/breads. Waffles seem simple – but unless you have five waffle irons going at once, you’re gonna spend the whole morning making waffles, and who wants that?

    What about french toast instead of waffles? You could make quite a few servings at one time if you use a griddle. It’s sooo yummy!

    You could even make baked french toast, which is amazing and extremely easy for hosting.

    If you make the food yourself, look into some breakfast casseroles.  Taste Of Home website has some great recipes.  Also, look for muffins at Costco.  They are huge, but very good and you could cut them if you wanted.

    We did this. Our menu was:


    Cream Cheese


    Broccoli Quiche

    Cheese Grits


    Fresh Fruit

    Mini Blueberry Muffins

    Bloody Mary’s


    People loved it.

    ETA: Mother-In-Law made everything (except the bagels, cc, and lox) as most can be made ahead of time and the sausages were costco frozen brown and serve. SO good!

    I love all of your options, but think about practicality. You really want to be making stuff the day after? We did a Day after brunch and had a fruit spread, various bagels and cream cheeses, lox, cheese and crackers, quiche (because you can make it ahead of time) and mimosas. Nothing was made that morning, it was just set out!

    I agree with a PP and breakfast cassaroles! My Mom makes one each year for christmas morning… Mmmm so good! I think she uses day old bread, eggs, sausage, cheese, chives… but you could totally customize it.

    Quiches are delicious too! 

    What about a make your own breakfast taco bar? Although, that could be a regional thing.

    I’m not a huge fan of breakfast foods.  At brunch, I always like bagels and spreads (cream cheeses, tuna or chicken salad, etc), fruit salads, green salads, and I personally love when there’s something like croissants with cold cuts, or little tea sandwiches.  I do like hash browns with breakfast meats or eggs benedict if I have to eat a “real” breakfast. But I’d much rather eat a sandwich of some sort than waffles/pancakes and eggs, no matter what time of day it is.  I realize I’m probably in the minority there, though…

    You forgot the BEST breakfast meat in the poll! I love sausage.. patties not links. but links are good too. I couldn’t imagine a brunch without sausage.
