Prosciutto, Kale and Red Bell Pepper Skillet Frittata

If you like eggs for breakfast, you’ll love this frittata dish.

Chicken and Waffles

This classic Southern brunch recipe is the perfect combo of sweet and savory.

French Toast

French toast is the quintessential breakfast and brunch food that we never get tired of!

The 50/50 base of milk and heavy cream gives this dish an extra richness without feeling too heavy. The key to this recipe is the brioche bread—it’s thick, fluffy and the perfect vessel to soak up the sweet and creamy egg mixture before frying on the griddle.

Serve with berries, a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup to finish.
