Sunday brunch has become quite the welcomed weekend tradition. On any given Sunday, there is no limit to the number of guests pouring into restaurants eagerly awaiting to partake in everything from bottomless mimosas and avocado toast to turning up on the dance floor. While I admit it is an event I look forward to each week, sometimes I want to experience the same brunch joys with a few out of box twists.
There’s no shame in wanting to do things your own way with a little creativity. Dying to take the boring out of brunch? Get into these three useful tips and thank me later:
1. Cook This, Not That
When you think brunch, a bevy of omelets, French toast and crepes served hot and ready probably come to mind. But the downside is that they require your constant stove-top attention, which can take away from the brunching fun. If you’re hosting Sunday brunch for your family and friends, opt for unconventional brunch items that you can make ahead of time, like a quick breakfast casserole, quiche, banana breads or muffins. And if you plan well enough in advance, you can freeze and thaw them the same day without sacrificing taste.
2. Turn Sunday Brunch Into A Show
Another way to breathe some life into your drab brunch plans is to go multi-course. Like upscale dinners, you can have a five-course breakfast with new pairings each round to keep the conversation going for hours. Keep it light at first then bring out the heavier entrees a little later. Don’t forget: always end with dessert because, why not?
3. Turn Chambong Into Your Best Friend.
Mimosas are a Sunday brunch staple and here at Food Before Love, we are proud mimosaholics. While you can never go wrong with a classic, putting your own spin on the drink can offer a pleasant surprise. Enter the chambong. An easy-to-use glass that enhances the champagne drinking experience, you’ll never put your lips to a flute again. Instead of a stem, the champagne comes out the bottom of the glass in a funnel-like manner. Talk about a new way to enjoy your favorite beverage, right? You can even turn things up a notch by trying to finish the entire glass in one “sip.” To purchase your own, visit https://shopchambong.com/.
