Is brunch like lunch

What is a brunch?

Pamper yourself and your guests with our brunch ideas! The term “brunch” comes from the merging of the English terms “breakfast” and “lunch”. This trend of brunch is not only very popular in hotels and restaurants, but is also enjoyed at home from morning to early afternoon. But there's really nothing like sleeping in on the weekend followed by a brunch with friends and family, right? We'll show you recipes and tips for the perfect brunch and everything else that goes with a great brunch experience.

The wonderful thing about a brunch is the variety and variety of cold and warm dishes that you can offer your guests. From the classic breakfast ideas such as muesli and rolls, brunch also includes Mediterranean antipasti, hearty snacks, light salads or vegan pancakes.

Bread or rolls?

German cuisine is characterized by the variety of bread and rolls. It doesn't always have to be the same Sunday rolls from the bakery. A brunch is ideal for pampering your guests with extraordinary home-baked creations. Try baking a healthy spelled bread or surprise your guests with fig and walnut bread rolls. Depending on the season, carrot and walnut bread or pumpkin bread is great in autumn, for example. Sweet bread and sweet rolls are also very popular, especially with the younger guests. How about mini brioche, spelled bagels, sweet apple and cinnamon bread or banana bread, for example?

Spreads - simply homemade and delicious

When it comes to spreads on the brunch buffet, everything from sweet to savory is possible. Even if classics such as nut nougat cream have become an indispensable part of the breakfast table for Germans, there are undreamt-of possibilities to try new things and to prepare spreads yourself. Alternatives to the purchased nut nougat cream are, for example, the chocolate and nut spread or a creamy speculoos spread. If you are expecting guests with plant-based dietary preferences, we recommend our vegan chocolate spread. For those who prefer something hearty on bread, we recommend trying our recipes Hessischer Spundekäs with herbs, radish and cress spread, goat's cream cheese spread or carrot and apple spread. If you want to offer your guests something extraordinary, why not try the delicious macadamia and herb spread. The increasingly popular healthy avocado should of course not be missing as an ingredient among the spreads. Avocado can be seen at every brunch with herbs as an avocado and herb cream or as a classic avocado spread.

Variety of jams at the brunch buffet

Everyone knows grandma's homemade jam is just the best. But very few people are aware of how easily anyone can prepare jam themselves and, above all, how many variations are possible. How about a classic summer berry jam? Our unusual variations of pear jam with amaretto, tomato jam with apricot or nectarine-cashew jam impress with completely new taste experiences. We have just the right thing for everyone who likes it spicy: pineapple-ginger jam and strawberry-chili jam. A classic in autumn is the pumpkin and apple jam. Do you have brunch guests at short notice and no more time to cook jam? With instant gelatine, a delicious, fresh raspberry fruit spread can be prepared within 15 minutes. Our insider tip for the summer brunch: Strawberry and chia spread with quark rolls.

Hearty snacks

Puff pastries, vegetables, cheese, ham, salmon - these and many other ingredients can be used to conjure up delicious, hearty brunch recipes. Have you ever tried herb corners, spicy cheese rolls, spicy paprika and vegetable couscous or apple and onion meatballs with curry dip? With salmon you can conjure up puff pastry bags with salmon or salmon pancake rolls. The typical antipasti mix is ​​ideal not only in Italian Mediterranean cuisine, but also on the brunch buffet. If you want to save yourself the preparation, you can also buy our different types of fresh tegut ... Antipasti: Antipasti variation olives, cherry peppers & green peppers and antipasti variation hot peppers, dried tomatoes & olives in the tegut ... market. Delicious, light salads such as our tomato and cucumber salad with yogurt or a chickpea salad round off the perfect brunch. The combination with fruit, such as a clementine lamb's lettuce with croutons or a mango and rocket salad are a light alternative to hearty snacks.

What would a brunch be without eggs?

The egg belongs to brunch like coffee to getting up. Let yourself be inspired by the variety of our omelette recipes and scrambled egg recipes. From the classic scrambled bread with radishes and spring onions to the egg salad with tuna to the fresh cress and egg spread - egg dishes are simply indispensable at brunch.

Sweet classics - waffles, pancakes and pancakes

A popular classic here are the waffles, for example yoghurt waffles or breakfast waffles with blueberry ricotta cream. With our recipe for the waffle cake with blueberries you can surprise your brunch visit with something very special.

In addition to the waffles, the pancakes, also known under the increasingly popular English term “pancakes”, should definitely not be missing at breakfast. Whether buttermilk pancakes with raspberry quark cream, buckwheat pancakes or apple pancakes with maple syrup, they are quick to prepare for brunch and a real treat. Vegan alternatives to conventional pancakes are also possible, such as our vegan pancakes with blueberry compote.
