I’m getting my house ready for our guests that will be visiting this holiday season, and I’m feeling so festive! I’m excited to cook a bunch of meals for them, especially this Holiday Brunch Menu!
This year, we are hosting Christmas at our house and we are going all out…even with brunch on the big day! However, I didn’t want to be slaving away for hours in the morning, so I’ve planned out a whole menu where all but one recipe can be made the night before!
On our brunch menu, we have my Sausage & Leek Breakfast Casserole, Oven-Baked Hashbrowns, Maple Bacon, and a refreshing Citrus Fruit Salad! Everything apart from the Maple Bacon can be made the day before and kept in the fridge overnight to bring out on the big day. You can even make my Oven-Baked Hashbrowns a few weeks before and freeze them, then cook from frozen! Even better!
Recipes: Sausage & Leek Breakfast Casserole and Oven-Baked Hashbrowns
Recipes: Maple Bacon and Citrus Fruit Salad
For my Maple Bacon, simply place the bacon strips on a parchment-lined baking tray and bake in the oven at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove it from the oven, baste with as much maple syrup as your heart desires, then bake again for another 5-10 minutes. The maple syrup will get nice and sticky and add a wonderful flavour to the bacon, This sweet and salty side will go perfect with the other recipes!
Citrus Fruit Salad
For my Citrus Fruit Salad, simply segment some oranges, a ruby red grapefruit. Add in some chopped kiwi and give everything a toss and you’re good to go! You can get this fruit salad ready the night before, and just store in the refrigerator overnight until you’re ready to eat it! This salad is so refreshing and is a great side to serve with these other hearty recipes!
I hope that you enjoy this Holiday Brunch Menu! Let me know what you like to serve for breakfast or brunch during the holidays in the comments below!
