If you’re cooking up brunch at home, know that you have an almost endless variety of dishes to choose from. That’s part of what makes the mid-morning meal so fun! The best brunch spreads have a little bit of everything: an egg-based dish, some sort of baked good, and a few sides and drinks to round it all out.

And just as there are brunch recipes that work for every taste preference, you’ve got a lot of great choices, no matter what your schedule looks like. If make-ahead brunch recipes are what you’re after, french toast casseroles and egg bakes are always a good idea because not only can they be made in advance, they’re even better when you do so. You can prep them the night before, so in the morning all you need to do it pop them in the oven. Baked goods, like muffins, scones, quick breads, and cinnamon rolls are good make-ahead options, and most can even be frozen.

We’ve compiled our best brunch recipes all in one place, making it easy to pick and choose to create the ultimate menu.
