Preparing a romantic brunch for two should be seen more as an art than as a trivial Sunday morning task. You obviously need the right tools (not much really), fresh ingredients but above the correct skills to rock it. We therefore compiled a selection of our favorite dishes for a perfect brunch and added a few tips to prepare them successfully along the way.
According to Wikipedia, an omelette or omelet is a dish made from beaten eggs quickly cooked with butter or oil in a frying pan. Classic and yet simple to prepare, the omelette can be made in a thousand different ways accommodating your preferences and tastes. Our favourite recipe from Blogarista.net here.
If you feel ambitious and you are willing to take it one step further, opt for the eggs Benedict. Two halves of an English muffin topped with bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Easy peasy.
Good pancakes should not be as thin and heavy as French crêpes. They shall, instead, be made as fluffy and airy as possible. Why? To make up some space for whatever your imagination will encourage you to put on top. Chocolate, strawberries, whip creams, maple syrup… You name it. Here is a good recipe, even better than Jamie Oliver’s in our opinion.
A chocolate lover could not survive past midday without his or her daily fix. In order to remediate to this happy situation, think about preparing some warm chocolate chip muffin. It is really not that hard considering the amount of happiness the first bite will generate. Think about it.
Don’t ruin the perfect brunch with orange juice from the half empty bottle you are keeping in the fridge. Roll up your sleeves and squeeze those bad boys. Choose your oranges well. Select the ones with the smooth skin, firm are fairly heavy for their size. You will get more juice, more C-vitamin and spend less of your precious energy that way.
