When I’m hosting a group brunch, I nearly always serve a breakfast casserole with eggs, bread, cheese, and a variety of meats or vegetables. It’s filling, foolproof, and always a crowd-pleaser. You can customize the ingredients any way you like—experiment with different sausages, change up the veggies, whatever tickles your fancy. Your guests will be clamoring for the recipe.

For an icy snack, whirl up this mix of fruits and white grape juice. Using the ripest fruit gives the sweetest flavor. For honeydew melon, this means taking the paler, juicier part near the center of the melon rather than the green flesh closer to the rind. The banana should be especially ripe.

This warming drink, a treat for coffee and chocolate lovers alike, combines the two under a layer of creamy foamed milk. Skim milk foams easily and makes a deceptively lean, yet rich topping. Enjoy it in the morning, as an afternoon break and as a liquid dessert.

My eggs on toast recipe is great because it’s one of those simple pleasures that doesn’t take a lot of work to make, but it always tastes like such a special treat. I love lathering on the ketchup just as much as I did when I was 8!

The batter is super easy to make, and you can vary the fruit used or throw in chocolate for an indulgent treat.
