Start 2013 off right! Whether it’s just you and the fam, or a crowd of friends and family, these delish brunch recipes are just the thing to usher in the new year.
Freshly Squeezed Mimosas
Some say the best way to cure a hangover is with a drink. This New Year’s Day, we’re not arguing, especially since this a.m. cocktail is made with fresh OJ and a dash of bubbly.
Sure, cold day-old pizza used to be fine for us, but this fancy schmancy pizza with ricotta and fresh herbs is sophisticated enough for our more grown-up selves for New Year’s brunch. Snag the recipe from The Kitchn.
French Toast Bread Pudding
Want to be the star of the New Year’s brunch? Bake up this crazy-good bread pudding from Ina Garten and everyone will be making resolutions to spend more time eating at your house.
Broccoli Cheddar Crepes
Crepes are like the Miss Congeniality of brunch — they get along well with both sweet and savory toppings. And since guests are probably used to eating them with fruit or syrup, give them a cheesy, veggie New Year’s surprise! Get the recipe at Good Housekeeping.
Eggs Benedict Casserole
Nothing soaks up last night’s champagne cocktails like the rich and decadent hollandaise sauce that tops this eggs-and-bacon casserole from Food.com. Benedict bonus: This dish can be made the day before, giving us extra hours to get some much needed morning after shut-eye.
This brunch-y comfort food comes from one of our favorite chefs, Marcus Samuelsson. It’s Mexi-mouthwatering and just spicy enough to snap us out of our NYE haze!
