21 Mind Blowing Brunch Recipes To Try This Bank Holiday


Brunch isn’t always about eating out and sometimes you just feel like throwing together a little something special yourself.

None of the recipes on this list are going to win you many awards in the health stakes, but they do win all the taste awards. They’re from some of the best bloggers in the world, so check out their other recipes, bookmark the ones you like and use them as your online cook book in future.

Drooling here just thinking about these…

1. Nutella and bacon stuffed french toast

You’re not going to believe just how good this recipe is. But probably not one for those on a diet.


2. Breakfast nachos

Most places you go for brunch will have a version of breakfast nachos, but none are going to taste or look as good as your own. Try them here.


3. Strawberry shortcake pancakes

Why go with plain pancakes when you can try these strawberry shortcake ones that look nearly too good to eat. Not actually that hard to throw together either.
