This year, wow your loved ones with a one-of-a-kind New Year’s brunch. Our festive recipe ideas are ideal for ringing in the new year in simplicity and style!
A mimosa bar
Kick off the festivities by setting up a mimosa bar for your guests. And if you really want to impress, make sure to multiply the flavour combos!
Simply pour equal parts orange juice and bubbly into a Champagne glass.
This version is prepared like a classic mimosa, but replace the orange juice with grapefruit juice and add a touch of lychee liqueur.
For an exotic touch, make your mimosa with pineapple juice and bubbly, then top it off with a drizzle of coconut-flavoured rum.
Delicious œufs en cocotte
Add an elegant touch to your brunch by serving a French classic: œufs en cocotte. Simply crack eggs into greased ramekins, place in a double boiler, and cook a few minutes in the oven at 355°F. You can simply season with salt and pepper or get creative and come up with flavourful combos.
Lardon and gruyère
Add some lardon cubes, a dollop of crème fraiche, and grated gruyère to the original recipe.
Spinach and mushroom
To prepare this version, whisk in sautéed spinach and mushrooms, then sprinkle with grated cheddar.
Tomatoes and goat cheese
Dice some tomatoes and add them to the original recipe. Stir in some crème fraiche and top with a slice of goat cheese.
Easy homemade creton!
This dish is oh-so-easy to make and guaranteed to impress all the foodies in your life!
In a pot, place one pound of ground pork, one cup of breadcrumbs, one grated onion, one minced garlic clove, the spices of your choice, and one cup of milk. Cover and let simmer over low heat for one hour, stirring occasionally.
