Simple recipe ideas to elevate your brunch offering

Move aside, breakfast! Brunch is quickly becoming the favorite meal of the day, and going out to a local brunch spot for something delicious to eat – and maybe a mimosa or two – has become a hugely popular weekend activity for many of us.

The popularity of brunch has an unusual origin. The English writer Guy Beringer first proposed the idea back in 1895, as a way to combat the dreaded hangover. The tradition has existed in some form ever since and reached a peak in popularity when it spread to the United States in the 1930s. Today, it remains as popular as ever, and competition among restaurants to attract the brunch crowd is fierce.

Set yourself apart from the others with these tips to help you take your brunch offering to the next level. Mother’s Day, one of the busiest days in the restaurant calendar, is just around the corner, so now is a great time to introduce something new to your brunch menu.
