Easy Brunch Recipes You’ll Love On Weekends
A Complete Meal of Easy Brunch Recipes For Weekend Suprise Home Visits
My mom and dad are so fond of giving us surprise visits during weekends. One minute they’re calling me to say that they are coming over, the next thing they’re already right at our doorsteps! I have prepared cookies for them, appetizers, healthy pastry bars and just recently, brunch dishes.
So, for a change, and to keep their sugar levels normal, I now keep as much easy brunch recipes as I can to equip myself during these unguarded moments. 🙂 No need to rattle your brain as to which dish would go perfectly with which because this is already a complete healthy meal. Ready to prepare brunch?
Brunch Recipe #1
Ham & Swiss Puff Pastry Bundles
- 1 sheet of Puff Pastry Dough
- 1 tbsp of Olive Oil
- 1 bunch of Asparagus, trimmed
- 4 slices of Ham
- 4 slices of Swiss cheese
- 1 pcs of Egg
- 1 tbsp of water
1. Cut pastry dough
First, you sprinkle a little flour on the table and then lay down your pastry dough. Cut it into 3.5-inch squares and then set aside.
2. Oil asparagus
Lightly coat your asparagus with olive oil to prevent the asparagus from burning when you bake them.
3. Arrange fillings
Arrange the bundle like so: Pastry dough at the bottom, followed by the ham, the cheese and the asparagus on top.
4. Fold into bundle
Fold all of the layers into a bundle by slightly pressing the tip of the dough on the top together.
5. Prepare egg wash and brush
To prepare the egg wash, simply whisk 1 tbsp. of water and egg together.
Then just cover the bundles with the egg wash with a pastry brush.
6. Bake and serve
Put it into the oven at 425ºF for about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Brunch Recipe #3
Homemade Whipped Cream
- 1 cup of Whipping cream
- 2-3 tbsps of Icing sugar
- ½ tsp of Vanilla Extract
1. Mix all ingredients
Combine all your ingredients really well with an electric mixer or whisking it by hand will also do.
2. Serve when ready
You will know that it’s ready when it sticks to the whisk this way. Top it on your berry bowl and serve.
- The egg wash is very important because it will make your dough achieve that golden flaky crust.
- The trick to having creamy scrambled eggs is by constantly moving them until they are fully cooked.
- Salt makes your eggs dry up so add them at the last part of cooking.
The great thing with these easy brunch recipes I got here is that they look well prepared. They don’t look rushed nor last-minute. Anyone can make these at home at any particular time. Just keep the ingredients ready in your cupboard because you’ll never know when you’ll need them. Who knows, they might even become a lifesaver for a hungry, yet sleepy mommy who is dragging her feet to the kitchen this weekend. 🙂
