Ideas for the Best Brunch Meals






     The best brunch meals are those that are geared to your personal family or particular social circle and what appeals to them. The term itself brings to mind a leisurely social setting where people look forward to getting together over good food. So be prepared for a longer than usual meal with the focus on everyone having a good time.

The idea of blending breakfast and lunch began in Europe in 1836 and provided the perfect solution for late night party goers. Since making the transition to the USA, these meals are usually held after a late night or special event such as a graduation party, New Years Eve, Easter, Mothers Day, or any Sunday morning.

Having a successful brunch means following a general rule of thumb as far as what to serve. The key is mixing sweet and savory. A meat or fish dish is always served. The meal will also include an egg dish, such as Eggs Benedict, omelets, French toast, etc. Plan to also serve an assortment of scones, muffins, breads or pancakes. Fruit or berries in season are also recommended. It is also important to include two or three side dishes. Finally, plan to serve a nice coffee such as French press or flavored coffees.

This type of meal usually caters to a wide variety of guests. So be sure to include some low-fat, low-carbohydrate and some vegetarian dishes. It is also a good idea to have pre-sliced servings so guests can easily serve themselves.

Since brunches are geared to socializing, be sure to have enough chairs to seat everyone around the table. This is not a buffet meal or stand-up cocktail party. The other alternative is to have additional tables and chairs placed close by so everyone feels close to the action.

These meals can be either casual or formal, depending on the event. If your event is casual and everyone already knows each other, guests will appreciate disposable plastic plates and eating utensils so there is more time to socialize and enjoy each others company. On the other hand, a formal one can be quite elaborate. These are usually catered and might include such items as smoked salmon, French cheeses, an omelet bar, etc.

Whether casual or formal, a deciding factor in determining the best brunch meal is the food that is served. So be sure to plan your menu well. This is not the time for experimenting. If you already know how to prepare a few good main dishes, it is better to stick with those. On the other hand, if you have prior experience with it, serving one exotic food dish could keep your guests talking for weeks.

All in all, what determines the best brunch meals is the amount of time and thought has been put into planning and preparing the meal. A good host/hostess will be aware of the tastes and dietary needs of each of their guests and will carefully consider these. He/she will also pay careful attention to the table setting and make sure that each guest is comfortably seated and feels included.
