Brunch can be the perfect way to entertain, as it’s often more relaxed, laid-back, providing a great way to bring people together minus the stress of a traditional dinner party.

The best way to streamline and simplify brunch even further is to prepare a few recipes ahead, and then assemble the rest the morning of.

I like to serve a mix of sweet and savory dishes, along with a few salads to round out the menu.

Added bonus: all the recipes included here are gluten-free, dairy-free, with plenty of vegetarian and paleo options, too.

Now all that’s left to do is grab a few recipes, invite some of your favorite friends, and get your brunch on!
