When I’m asked what my favorite meal is, I’m always debating between breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However, the truth is that none of these mealtimes is the correct answer. Brunch is quite easily my favorite meal of any day of the week. You can mix savory with sweet and even enjoy a mimosa before noon!

 1. Homemade Yogurt

Yogurt is an oldie but a goodie. It can be served in so many forms, but it is always best served FRESH. Fresh from the Instant Pot!

Once your yogurt is prepared, top it with homemade granola and fresh berries. A sprinkle of cinnamon is the little secret to taking your yogurt from good to fantastic!

2. Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

Ya, french toast is pretty good, but have you ever had a french toast casserole? It really is a game-changer. Imagine cinnamon buns, french toast and your favorite elements of cake all wrapped up into one delicious meal.

Not only are you having french toast, but it’s topped off with creamy icing and some nuts for extra flavor. Delicious.

3. Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cake

If you’re a fan of scones, you will thoroughly enjoy this breakfast cake. The tangy notes of lemon contrast well with the sweet blueberry flavor.

Without being too sugary, the glaze icing on top gives this cake the sweetness of dessert while still tasting like a breakfast treat.

4. Baked Oatmeal with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips

You’d be lying if you said that you’re never in a hurry. I mean, who isn’t these days? We really do need to learn to slow down and take our time.

In the meantime, make this oatmeal loaf so you can grab it as you run out the door to work or an extracurricular event with your kids! It’s nutritious and delicious!

5. Poached Eggs

Poached Eggs are a classic brunch dish and there isn’t really a way they can be served that will not be delicious. The Instant Pot helps all your poached dreams come to life in just minutes!

Add your egg onto an English muffin with avocado and bacon, and don’t forget to make some homemade hollandaise sauce!

6. The Absolute Best Instant Pot Frittata

If you’re keeping things healthy these days, the french toast bake may not be the recipe for you! However, a frittata is a great option.

Frittatas are my personal brunch meal of choice because they are low carb and high protein while tasting absolutely scrumptious!

7. Blueberry French Toast Bake

Why only have one french toast bake recipe when you can have two?! This recipe is not only tasty, but it is beautiful!

That’s right, pour piles of berries into this recipe and upload a picture perfect food selfie to your Instagram feed, because this meal doesn’t need a filter!

8. Steel Cut Oats

Steel cut oats are fantastic for your digestive health and loaded with energy that will help you get through your day without having the 2 pm crash.

To dress this up for brunch, serve a platter of nuts and fresh fruit to top it off. If you want to make it really creamy, serve with full-fat coconut milk.

9. Breakfast Casserole

Another variation of a frittata but this time, it’s a casserole! Instead of waiting and waiting for your incredibly wet egg casserole to bake in the oven, use this Instant Pot recipe for a quick, gourmet brunch option.

Casseroles can be unhealthy, but if you load them up with delicious veggies, they will quickly become one of your main sources of produce!

10. Breakfast Tacos

Taco-bout a delicious brunch! Surprise your loved ones with a savory and scrumptious Mexican breakfast that plays off of one of your favorite meals.

Instead of using jarred salsa, try your hand at making your own homemade pico de gallo to make these brunch tacos taste like they really are from Mexico.

11. Meat Lovers Quiche

Are you less about the veggies and more about the meat? Well, you’re not alone! This quiche is made for those meat-lovers in the crowd that just won’t settle for any old brunch.

Filled with gooey cheese and delicious meat, this brunch meal packs a serious protein punch!

12. Apple Cinnamon French Toast Casserole

When you’re sick of the traditional french toast, the casserole, and the blueberry casserole recipe above, this apple cinnamon french toast will refresh your palate!

Imagine a mix between apple pie and french toast – sounds dreamy, right? Well, that’s exactly what this casserole tastes like!

13. Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

Brunch is always super filling, but sometimes you end up in a carb-coma and that doesn’t always sit well with our to-do list for the day. I mean, we need actual energy!

These Instant Pot sweet potatoes are a fantastic base for any type of egg recipe you’re making. Instead of toast, try these sweet potatoes. Pay attention to how you feel afterward, I guarantee you will have long-lasting energy.

14. Rice Pudding

If you are not a fan of oatmeal, try your hand at making rice pudding for brunch! You can create just about any flavor which makes it fun for brunch guests to experiment with different toppings.

If you need some inspiration for toppings, try chocolate chips, coconut shreds, raisins, apples, cinnamon, almonds, and pecans just to name a few.

15. Shakshuka with Butternut Squash

You may not be familiar with Shakshuka, but it’s very popular in places like Israel for breakfast. It’s eggs made in a rich tomato sauce.

It sounds a little odd, but it’s actually super flavorful and will please any brunch guests’ palate upon their first bite.

16. French Toast Croissant Casserole

We created a serious Instagram-worthy brunch item. Our Instant Pot French toast casserole is made with flaky croissants, decadent berries, and enough maple syrup to seriously get your taste buds going!

To create this casserole you’ll need your Instant Pot and a springform pan that fits nicely inside your pot. It comes together quickly and once you try it you’ll be craving it again and again!
