10 mouthwatering brunch recipes you probably haven’t made yet

We’ve all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but let’s be honest, it’s actually brunch.

It’s like breakfast, but better (and not as early). Brunch is a good way to celebrate life’s fun moments with family and friends. And whether you prefer savory or sweet, there are brunch recipes everyone can get behind, from yummy, fluffy pastries and syrupy goodness to classic egg concoctions and crispy bacon-inspired dishes.

We’re not asking you to take sides when it comes to savory or sweet, so we’ve pulled together the 10 most mouthwatering, crowd-pleasing brunch recipes from Go Bold with Butter that run the gamut. Odds are you’ll love them all because each and every one is made with butter.  

1. Strawberry Rhubarb Scones

Planning a springtime brunch get-together? Strawberry rhubarb scones are the way to go. They’re bright, fruity and tangy with a delicious, fluffy inside and a delectable, crispy outside. 


2. Pecan Coffee Cake Muffins

Who said you have to choose between muffins and coffee cake? These combine the best of both worlds, topped off with an irresistible crunchy cinnamon streusel.


3. Homemade Cream Cheese Danishes

At brunch time, cream cheese isn’t just for bagels! These cream cheese Danishes are delightful, and the recipe is flexible – you can use a homemade puffy pastry or store-bought, depending on how much time and energy you’ve got on your hands.


4. Bacon Scallion Hash Brown

Yes, sometimes bacon and hash browns are two separate brunch items. But they’re better together. Pair these hash browns with eggs any way you like for a yummy, well-rounded brunch meal.


5. Braided Cinnamon Loaf

You don’t need superb baking skills to master this one – but you’ll seem like a pro to your brunch guests! This cinnamon loaf is a classic recipe that goes great with fruit jams and fresh berries.


6. Savory Breakfast Pop Tarts

If you’ve never had a savory pop tart, now’s the time to try one. Stuffed with a potato and sausage filling, these pop tarts are not only enjoyable fresh out of the oven – you can also freeze the leftovers and heat them up for on-the-go brunch whenever you need.


7. Churro Pancakes

Yes, these magical pancakes technically count as brunch, making it socially acceptable to enjoy a churro-like treat before noon. If you’ve got a taste for sweet, cinnamon-spiced pancake batter swirled with butter, brown sugar and more cinnamon, you can’t go wrong with these.


8. Broccoli Ham & Cheddar Breakfast Biscuits

These breakfast biscuits are a delicious addition to any brunch recipe. Who doesn’t love biscuits? Also, we’re all busy and can sometimes have a lot of mouths to feed. Like the savory pop tarts, these biscuits can be kept and repurposed for future on-the-go breakfasts.


9. Spicy Sausage Breakfast Quiche

If you’re a spicy brunch person, this recipe has you covered. Cheesy and buttery, this quiche combines Pepper Jack and Colby Jack cheese with cubanelle peppers and crumbled sausage on top of a satisfying crust. You might regret not trying this one.


10. PB&J Doughnuts

Finally, there’s no such thing as a good brunch list without at least one doughnut recipe. PB&J is one of the most beloved food combinations of all time – and they don’t just work on a sandwich. Try these peanut butter doughnuts with a sweet jelly glaze on top and see for yourself!
