Plan the Perfect Brunch with Wild Blueberries
Everyone loves a good late morning, slow going brunch session – the mouthwatering table spread, the scent of good food wafting through the house! Whether you’re hosting a casual get together, or celebrating Easter festivities with family, brunch is a wonderful way to connect and a lot of the work can be done ahead of time. In honor of April being National Brunch Month, here are five delectable wild blueberry brunch recipes. These little wild blue gems from Maine have a more intense blueberry flavor, 33% more brain-healthy anthocyanins, and up to two times the antioxidants of ordinary blueberries. Your tastebuds will thank you.
Before you start preparing your brunch consider these tips:
- Serve buffet style. It will keep you from jumping up and waiting on people. You can relax and enjoy some great conversations with your guests.
- Eat after 10AM. This is more of a loose guideline, but brunch is typically served between breakfast and lunch time. We’ll leave that up to you, though!
- Offer variety. By offering a spread, your guests will have options and everyone’s happy! Mix it up with different style eggs (scrambled, overeasy, sunny-side-up, or a quiche), breakfast meats (bacon or sausage), colorful fruits (we recommend wild blueberries!), and a variety of drink options (orange juice, milk, coffee, or tea).
The Wild Blueberry Brunch Breakdown
Now, let’s get to the good stuff… some flavorful wild blueberry recipes! Which – by the way – will be the buzz of your brunch-bash. These five recipes can easily accompany all the traditional brunch favorites we listed above. Let’s get cooking.
You heard that right, a waffle bar! Swap your traditional sugary maple syrup for some homemade sweet and tart wild blueberry syrup. This healthier syrup alternative is packed with flavor, making your waffles warm and most definitely inviting. For an all around yummy breakfast, this waffle bar is best served with a side of eggs (preferably scrambled) and some fried bacon.
Looking for the main event for brunch? Look no further than this Wild Blueberry Ricotta Stuffed French Toast! This baked dish takes all the best parts of breakfast and rolls it into one scrumptious bite. Served best with maple syrup and top it off with some fresh wild blueberries.
You can’t go wrong with having a few carb options at your brunch table, to go, such as toast, bagels, or muffins. These wild blueberry mini muffins are the perfect addition to your spread.
Who doesn’t love toast? People are topping their toast with just about everything these days. Make your toast a little sweeter with some homemade wild blueberry chia jam – kids and adults both love this spread, so you can’t go wrong.
Now, this is for all the adults out there – we know that mimosas are the brunch drink preference, but this wild blueberry bubbly might become your new favorite. All you need is a little sugar, water, some prosecco, and wild blueberries of course.
