Eggs Benedict is always a good choice for brunch, but what might put people off from making it themselves is the hollandaise sauce. This recipe from Simply Recipes shows you a super easy way to make the sauce in a blender! Definitely give this one a go, the combination of poached eggs, crispy ham and creamy hollandaise sauce is an absolute winner.

If you’re looking for a more interesting way to use bread in a brunch recipe, try making bread pudding! This is a delicious sweet treat with such humble ingredients. This recipe from Taste of Home combines the bread pudding with blueberries and white chocolate for an indulgent brunch with friends.
Shakshuka is a super easy brunch idea, and it’s deliciously warming making it great comfort food in winter. The whole dish is cooked in one pan, so it’s easy to make for a number of people if you’re entertaining!

If you’re craving a sweet treat, you really can’t go passed chocolate waffles! I would definitely invest in a waffle iron so you can whip up fluffy waffles whenever you like.
