Twenty minutes later, you have warm cheesy muffins to go with your breakfast or salad.

13. Breakfast Avocado Toast with Egg and Cheese

Breakfast Avocado Toast with Egg and Cheese

I’m not much of a breakfast person. Most mornings I usually grab a cup of coffee, a hard-boiled egg and a piece of fruit, or whip up a smoothie. But lately, I’ve been obsessed with avocado toast for breakfast, especially when I have avocados in my fridge that need to be used up. It’s a simple, healthy breakfast when you need something delicious and fast. The premise is a simple one, lightly toasted bread (or broiled if I’m at home and too lazy to get the toaster out) is topped with avocado slices and thinly sliced cheese (my favourite is pepper jack) and then broiled until the cheese is golden brown. Then top the toast with preferably a runny egg.

12. Puff Pastry Cheese Straws

Puff Pastry Cheese Straws

Does a dinner party plan stress you out? Puff pastry cheese straws are here for you. These crispy, flaky, cheesy twists require just two ingredients and a few minutes of your time, and yet they deliver big — real big — out on the buffet table. Cheese straws are made with puff pastry, which is cut into strips and then twisted into “straws.” This pastry is made of hundreds upon hundreds of thin layers of dough and butter. In the heat of the oven, these layers puff dramatically and become incredibly crispy. Add some cheese to those layers, and you’ve got something worth spoiling your dinner over. It’s one of my best delicious New Years brunch recipes ever.

11. Vodka Cranberry Cocktail Recipe 

Vodka Cranberry Cocktail Recipe 

You might think the Vodka Cranberry drink is simply vodka and cranberry juice, especially since that’s how some bars serve it. Well, some bars are lazy and shameful. This drink actually has four ingredients, and the last two are very important to the flavour. A proper Vodka Cranberry also uses a touch of Rose’s sweetened lime and some orange juice to bring out the best of the cranberry flavour. This cocktail recipe is pretty light on the alcohol, so feel free to vary it according to your taste and tolerance. The only alcohol in this drink is vodka, so you can add a little more if you prefer.

Huevos Rancheros Casserole

Huevos rancheros have been one of my favourite New Years brunch recipes. It’s a hearty, satisfying breakfast, which means it can also hold its own for dinner. In this version, huevos rancheros go the way of the casserole with a double layer of corn tortillas, a generous helping of beans and cheese, and the signature spicy-sweet tomato-chile sauce. Everything is stacked into a 9×13-inch baking dish and then topped with a few eggs and baked in a hot oven until the whites are set and everything is melty and delicious.

5. Mini Frittata Muffins

Mini Frittata Muffins

Packed with fresh veggies and eggs, these mini frittata muffins have become one of my favourite New Years brunch recipes. They’re great straight from the oven, but they keep well in the fridge for a few days too. Enjoy one (or two or three) for a quick breakfast at home, or pack them up for a meal or snack later on. Eggs and dill are some of my favourite combinations, so I used them as a starting point for this frittata muffin recipe. These mini frittatas are perfect for the in-between days! You can make a batch, chill them, and then just reheat in the microwave a few at a time when you want a light breakfast or lunch. They’re also perfect for a brunch buffet, as you can make them ahead of time and reheat to serve.

4. Chocolate Kahlua Bread Pudding

Chocolate Kahlua Bread Pudding

Reward yourself with breakfast that tastes like dessert! Slightly boozy too. What more can we ask for? Chocolate Kahlua bread pudding is bursting with chocolate flavour and a truly special morning treat. In this chocolate bread pudding though, I used the sturdier and crustier ciabatta because that was what we had leftovers of. Bread pudding is a great way to use up days old bread! So feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Some bread are fluffier than others and that may affect the texture of your pudding but it will taste just as delicious.

3. Healthy Breakfast Egg Cups

Healthy Breakfast Egg Cups

These healthy egg muffin cups are filled with veggies, toasty warm, filled with protein, and can be made in advance! Sounds like the perfect breakfast to me. Oh yea, and they taste good. I like chopping everything pretty small, because I’m not a fan of big chunks, but the size of the veggie is up to you! Now mince some garlic and crack the eggs! I used 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites. The whole recipe you can find below. I love these new years brunch recipes and these healthy egg muffin cups can be made in advance because I know a lot of people just don’t have the time for a healthy breakfast, so they grab something else on the go that may not be the healthiest option!

2. Spicy White Bean Soup

Spicy White Bean Soup

This soup takes advantage of canned beans and comes together quickly. Yet the soup tastes remarkably fresh thanks to the carrots, celery, and garlic. Cumin and a little bit of sherry vinegar (or lime juice) add a Cuban flair that takes it over the top. This lightly creamy bean soup is packed with flavor. This homemade soup is a million times better than the store-bought variety. Packed with spicy flavour, hearty enough for a meal, and easy enough for a weeknight! The best part: this spicy white bean soup comes together in just over thirty minutes.

1. Avocado Toast Bar 

Avocado Toast Bar 

Avocado toast has been a top trend for a long time, and with good reason. Avocados are full of nutrients, healthy fats, and they taste pretty darn good if you ask me. Serving avocados at a buffet offers a special challenge, because people may want to grab a portion over a long period of time. I would recommend waiting as long as possible to cut into your avocados before serving them. Fresh Avocado spread for toast is one of my favorite ways to start my day! My favorite is First Watch avocado toast – the toppings they add are always so creative, and delicious, to boot. Their amazing avocado toast is actually what inspired me to make this avocado toppings bar! So what are you waiting for guys?? Let’s make these 21 New Years brunch recipes and celebrate this New year with our family and friends.
