To be fair, we're pretty sure that creamy scoop up there is ice cream. But imagine it's thick, brunch-approved greek yogurt
instead—what a great idea to feed a crowd. We're always looking for something that's an alternative to eggs or carbs. This is perfect, and you can make it ahead of time
. You can even serve it in martini glasses. See?
We've been asked many, many times for brunch menu ideas, and we always start with an egg casserole
or baked eggs
, followed by a plate of bagels or maybe some cinnamon rolls
But then there's the fruit element. You want something beyond eggs and carbs, maybe something a little sweet, and the default is a fruit salad. What about a warm, sweet baked apple instead? These could be the main dish, to be honest, filled with crunchy granola and served with yogurt and honey.
