Weekends are for Brunching

Weekends are for brunching

Some of the best conversations happen around the table. There’s something truly special about sharing food together and slowing down to enjoy one another’s company. Brunch is the perfect excuse to get together over food and weekends are simply made for slowing down. Therefore, brunching and weekends are the perfect combo!

Brunch menus seem to vary greatly, so this month, we’ve been asking our #CanolaConnect community:

What is your must have brunch menu item? Tell us for a chance to win a #CanolaConnect prize package!

Here are a few of the staples that seem to be favourites among our community:

Waffle with Berries | www.canolaeatwell.com

Waffles

A brunch staple that can be dressed up with fresh berries or fruit compote. My favourite tip, as I shared in What We’re Lovin’ for May, is to separate your eggs! Beat the egg whites in their own bowl and fold them into the batter at the end to make your waffles extra fluffy! Don’t waste the yolks – just toss them in with the other wet ingredients as you make the batter.

Best Hash Browns | www.canolaeatwell.com

Hash browns

My family LOVES hash browns — The crispier, the better! I’ll often add chopped up peppers, onions and mushrooms for some added veggie goodness, but they’re delicious plain and simple as well. For the crispiest hash browns, use a cast iron pan and bake them in the oven, then broil to finish.

Quickie Crepe | www.canolaeatwell.com

Quickie crepes

One of my favourite crowd-pleasing brunch menu items is crepes. I love to do a make-your-own crepe bar for guests with a wide variety of filling options!

Canola Granola | www.canolaeatwell.com

Canola Granola

A nice addition to any brunch is a yogurt parfait with choices of toppings such a fresh or frozen fruits, chocolate chips and some delicious homemade granola. Leftover granola can be stored for a healthy snack later in the week, or put into small mason jars as a little take-away for your brunch guests.

We want to know how you’re brunching this month! Tell us in the comments or tag us on Instagram and Twitter: share your favourite brunch menu items or show us what you’re serving up!

  1. Eggsenedict w/ bacon is a family favorite..When the men are finished seeding canola, they have time for brunch on Sundays!
    I serve it w/ watermelon and kiwi slices!

  2. Our favourite brunch item is a hash brown scramble with colourful peppers,mushrooms,onions,sausage.

  3. My favourite brunch item is Eggs Benedict with fresh cut fruit. You can never go wrong with it – at home or out at a restaurant it’s my go to.

  4. Omelets! They’re filled with whatever I have on hand – mushrooms, red, orange or green peppers, green onions, tomatoes and always cheese of course!

  5. I guess mine would be waffles, though I don’t think I have ever actually done brunch. On the farm, breakfast was before 6am, lunch at 12, supper at 5 or 6 pm. Coffee at 10 and 3. And plenty of work in between!

  6. Both delicious and easy is a French Toast Casserole. It can be done the night before so all you have to do is pop it in the oven. You don’t have to stand over the stove doing individual pieces of French Toast and everybody gets hot food at the same time! Grab that maple syrup. What’s not to love?
