Holiday hacks to transform your brunch menu
This holiday season, build a brunch spread that suits grown-up guests and little visitors alike. From an easy-to-assemble strata to decadent eggs Benny with lobster, there's an option for every eater at the table.
Stuffed Egg Nog French Toast
French toast made with Compliments Egg Nog, stuffed with sweet orange marmalade, cream cheese and dried cranberries—does anything sound better for a crisp winter morning? While this Stuffed Egg Nog French Toast recipe calls for multigrain bread, you can easily replace it with any bread of your choosing; we'd suggest a rich brioche from our Bakery Dept. for extra elegance.
Mushroom, Spinach & Goat Cheese Strata
You've got the breakfast omelette down, but have you tried a strata? A layered casserole dish usually including bread, egg, and cheese, a strata is almost like a savoury bread pudding. It's an elegant way to one-up your Sunday omelette special; just bake it in a dish with a few extra ingredients. Our Mushroom, Spinach & Goat Cheese Strata features rosemary bread for an herbaceous and aromatic brunch recipe that will fill the house with holiday scents! Combined with Compliments Goat Cheese Crumbles, spinach, and mushrooms, this strata will make everyone fall in love with the creamy texture and bold flavours.
Strawberry-Lemon Crescent Roll Wreath
This sneakily easy and impressive dish only takes 15 minutes of prep! Our Strawberry-Lemon Crescent Roll Wreath is a holiday brunch menu superstar; slice up this wreath and watch guests sigh over cream cheese filling with sugary strawberries loaded into a warm flaky crust, all drizzled in a sweet glaze.
Classic Eggs Benedict
Eggs Benedict always impresses a crowd (and it’s actually surprisingly easy to put together!). Crack the eggs into a pot of boiling water (with a splash of vinegar) for a few minutes to poach, then set atop your bread of choice—you can’t go wrong with toasted English muffins. For a crowd-pleasing option to suit both the kid and adult tables, try topping your eggs Benny with bacon. Or, if you’re looking to change the game and treat your guests to something extra special, get your claws on some succulent lobster tail from our Seafood Dept. —steamed for you while you shop*! Lastly, don’t skip the Hollandaise sauce; it completes the dish. Learn how to make a simple Hollandaise here.
*We offer free in-store steaming of lobsters, where available.
Gingerbread Almond Latte
It's Christmas in a cup! Use our Compliments Winter Blend Coffee as the base, then add ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond beverage to make this Gingerbread Almond Latte recipe for a strong holiday wake-up call.
