Brunch Party Ideas for Those Without Anything In the Fridge

The nice thing about brunch is that you can keep it simple and relaxed – it doesn’t have to be about crisp linen napkins or crab Benedict. We believe that nothing says brunch like mimosas and a Bloody Mary bar. Brunch parties are perfect for those who love entertaining, but hate long grocery lists or hours of preparation. Your refrigerator probably contains enough ingredients to host the perfect get-together. Follow some of these easy entertaining tips that won’t leave anyone knowing that you actually slept in.

The Food

Most people recognize the fact that when they come over they aren’t going to a restaurant that has an omelet making station. Give yourself a break and don’t try to compete with the brunch professionals. Take a creative approach with traditional dishes to win you oohs and aahs. That’s where breakfast nachos come into play.

Breakfast Nachos

Breakfast nachos are as tasty as they are easy to make. Simply spread tortilla chips on a casserole pan. Cover with handy everyday items you have in your refrigerator like spinach, tomatoes, olives, sausage, and of course, cheese. Crack a couple of eggs on top and place in an oven set at 350 degrees F. Cook until the eggs have firmed up. Serve with chips on the side for extra dipping. The fabulous part of this dish is the slightly runny yoke. It creates a melt in your mouth texture that also secures the topping on each chip.

 Eggs Baked in an Avocado

The simplicity of this dish is almost better than its taste. Remove the pit out of each avocado and scoop enough of the avocado out to hold an egg. Brush a tablespoon of lime juice on the avocado. Break an egg into the center and bake for 10 minutes in an oven set at 425 degrees F. Serve with tortillas and a spoon for scooping. You can tailor make your baked avocados with a number of items. Simply, spread whatever strikes your fancy like crabmeat, sausage, pulled pork or cheese into the avocado hole before cracking the egg.

 Empty the Fridge Frittata

Frittatas lend themselves to making wonderful blank canvases. Almost anything tastes good in frittata. You can also use leftovers, anything that is on its way out in the refrigerator and canned items. The frittata recipe itself requires few ingredients. All you need is a casserole pan or cast iron skillet and eggs. Beat the eggs. Add your ingredients and cook on broil in the oven until it has browned on top. Tell your guests it took you all morning to make then serve.

The Bar

A good Bloody Mary bar will elevate your brunch to epic proportions. To make your life easier, use a mixer such as our Simple Bloody Mary. Unlike other mixers, this contains a hint of sugar, which reduces the acidity of the tomato. However, you don’t lose the mix’s savory notes. Everyone has an opinion about what makes a good Bloody Mary. Provide a host of condiments for people to personalize their cocktail.

Bloody Mary Condiments :

  • Hot Pepper Sauce
  • Barbeque sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Celery salt
  • Steak seasoning
  • Horseradish
  • Celery
  • Olives
  • Pickles
  • Limes
  • Lemons
  • Clam Juice

You can also wow your guests by including some unconventional items for them to throw in such as bacon strips, cheese curds, broiled shrimp and pickled vegetables. To prevent a bottleneck at the bar area, pour your mixer into a large pitcher, and keep it on ice. Each guest will need roughly ¼ of a bag of ice during your brunch and will need approximately two glasses. Not everyone is keen on Bloody Mary cocktails, so we recommend you have one or two other options on hand, including a non-alcoholic option for the designated drivers, like our Bubbly Bellini.

Hosting a brunch should be more about catching up with guests and less about perfecting your crêpe recipe. Keep it simple and enjoy a carefree day with those you love.
