5 Next-Level Brunch Recipes

You’ll want to make these ultimate brunch recipes for every meal of the day.

Move over eggs Benny. We’re stepping up our game with recipes so excellent, you may just want to make brunch a meal you serve three times a day.

1. Banana Bread Doughnuts

These doughnuts are something special to linger over during brunch. Light and fluffy, these vegan and gluten-free treats are a bit less guilt-inducing since they’re baked instead of fried. The maple-roasted almonds here add a great crunch and textural contrast to the cakey doughnut, but feel free to garnish with whatever nuts, seeds or sprinkles you have on hand.

2. Garden Shakshuka

A popular breakfast dish throughout the Middle East, shakshuka is traditionally made by poaching eggs in a spicy tomato sauce. Here, we’ve shaken things up by forgoing the tomatoes altogether and instead using a garden’s worth of green vegetables.

3. Bibimbap Waffles

Bibimbap is Korean comfort food. Simply translated, it means “mixed rice with meat and assorted vegetables.” By turning the rice into an amazingly delicious (gluten-free!) crunchy waffle, it becomes the perfect vehicle to pile high with fresh savoury toppings. Since the waffle mixture can be made ahead, you might even find yourself whipping this up on a weeknight.

4. Custardy Baked Orzo

This spin on the classic strata swaps the bread for pasta. Orzo, a type of pasta that looks a lot like long-grain rice, is popular in Greece and is often baked into casseroles. Warm, creamy and comforting, this recipe is perfect accompanied with a simple green salad.

5. Breakfast Báhn Mì

At once spicy, salty, sour, sweet and aromatic, a Vietnamese bánh mì might just be sandwich nirvana. A product of French colonialism in Vietnam, it has risen from humble street food to international fame. This riff on the classic makes for a substantial sandwich.
