Breakfast is too early. Lunch seems too formal. So that brings us to brunch. The happy in between when you can devour delicious breakfast along with bottomless mimosas, bar any judgement of course.
Cooking for a brunch party is a tad more tricky than say, cooking for a potluck. Fortunately, most breakfast foods don’t require gourmet-level culinary skills. When it comes to cooking, many people overlook the quality of the ingredients. Superior quality ingredients have a higher nutritional value and taste much better. So, make an effort to purchase fresh and organic produce and products. Naturally Best Fresh is a trusted supplier of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, dairy products and more.
In this post, we’ve put together some brunch recipes that are easy yet impressive. Let’s get started, shall we?

12 Bacon Strips (or veggie alternatives)
½ cup Cheddar Cheese (grated)
Grapefruit, Avocado and Walnut Salad (Serves 4)
