Did Someone Say New Year’s Brunch?

Quiche and Mimosas? I’m In!

Did someone say New Year’s brunch? I’m in! I love a good New Year’s brunch. It’s a great way to keep the celebration going! One or two simple, satisfying dishes are all you need to make your brunch a success. Pair it with a good brunch cocktail – along with choices of orange juice, cranberry juice, and tomato juice, and you’re ready to start the new year.

If you’re planning a New Year’s brunch, here are some of my fave dishes and some tips to make the day a success.


Crust, or No Crust? That is the Question!

Quiche is the quintessential brunch food. It checks off everything on the breakfast list – eggs, cheese, meat (optional), and veggies – and it’s all wrapped up in a flaky pie crust – or not! I don’t even bake mine in pie crusts. Calorie saver!

It’s savory and satisfying, which is just what you need the morning after a New Year’s Eve bash – whether that bash is a party (stay safe) or a quiet night at home, lol. To each his own!

Best of all, you can prep your quiches ahead of time. Then, pop them in the oven for a few minutes to warm them up, and you’re ready to eat.

If you’re into making a crust for your quiches, try this:

  • Blind bake your pie crust.
  • Prep your add-ins (veggies, cheese, meats, etc.).
  • Prep your eggs and milk, and combine with the add-ins.
  • Pour the filling into your pie crust, and bake.

But if you’re a crustless quiche fan, like me, try my recipe. Truth? I make these at least two or three times a month and always have slices in my freezer. Best and quickest breakfast, lunch, and even dinner option out there! Pair with more veggies, fruits, salad – anything goes!


  • 32 ounce carton egg whites
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 peppers – one green and one red, or whatever’s on hand, diced
  • 2-3 ounces fresh spinach leaves torn into pieces, or 1 box very well drained frozen spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 shredded mozarella
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray the pie plate (9 inches) with cooking spray. Add the torn spinach leaves, sprinkle the diced peppers over the torn spinach, layer the sliced mushrooms and the feta cheese, and pour the egg whites over the mixture. Top with the shredded mozzarella cheese and then bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Enjoy immediately, or slice as I do and stick in the freezer for later use.


Who Can Say No to Crepes?

If you prefer something light and simple for New Year’s brunch, crepes are a delicious option. Of course, you can save time by using pre-made crepes, but making your own is just as simple.

Here’s an excellent recipe for basic crepes. Eat them plain, or fill them with fresh fruit and cream.


Frittatas Are a Terrific, Easy Option

If you’re not in the mood for quiche, try a frittata. Frittatas are simple, delicious, and satisfying. Like quiche, you can add a variety of veggies, meats, or cheeses. So grab whatever you have in the fridge, and get creative.

A basic frittata is nothing more than a mix of whisked eggs/milk and your fave add-ins (tomatoes, broccoli, sausage, bacon, cheddar cheese, fresh herbs, etc.). Traditional frittatas are cooked on the stovetop and finished in the oven, but you can bake them if you’re exhausted from NYE.


Mimosas are Always a Brunch Favorite

Don’t forget the drinks! Mimosas are perfect for a New Year’s brunch. A dry sparkling wine will do if you’re out of champagne (steer clear of anything sweet). Don’t want any alcohol? Swap the champagne for club soda!

Serve in flute glasses with a sprig of mint and orange slices for a fancy brunch.

2 Tips to Make Your New Year’s Brunch a Breeze

cheers to New Year's Brunch
Cheers to an Easy New Year’s Brunch and All of You!

Don’t fret and fuss on New Year’s morning. Here are some tips to make your brunch as effortless as possible.

1. Make Ahead if You Can

I think we’re all tired on New Year’s Day. Even if you weren’t out at a party, maybe you stayed up to watch the ball drop in New York’s Times Square. Make your life easier by prepping for brunch ahead of time. Have your ingredients ready to go, or better yet, cook your brunch the day before and heat it in the morning.

2. Keep it Simple

It may be tempting to go all-out with a big extravagant brunch, but try to keep it simple – especially if you’re going to have a busy NYE.

Quiches, frittatas, and crepes are easy to make, which is why I recommend them for a New Year’s brunch.

If you’re feeling adventurous, then, by all means, go as big and fancy as you want. But if you stick to simple, delicious, and filling foods, you can spend less time fussing in the kitchen and more time enjoying the first day of the new year.
