6 Lazy Weekend Brunch Ideas

6 easy cafe-worthy brunch ideas for a lazy weekend morning in the comfort of your own home.


Ever wake up on a weekend and feel too lazy to even step out of your home for that lazy weekend brunch? Trying to save some $ by taking your expensive cafe cravings into your own hands? or simply want to enjoy brunch outside of socially acceptable brunch hours? We’ve got you covered with these easy, pocket-friendly and absolutely delectable brunch ideas any novice cook could attempt at home.

1. Smashed Avocado, Ham and Poached Egg on Toast

Avocado – a brunch staple. This one is quick enough to do even on a weekday! Makes it perfect if you want that brunch feeling, but are too lazy to whip up anything too intricate. Just 10 minutes and you have a cafe-worthy breakfast to dig into. Fry up some bacon to go with this dish, or add in some prosciutto if you’re feeling like taking it up a notch.

2. English Breakfast

Digging into a full English breakfast (minus the black pudding, which we personally don’t fancy) on the weekend is magical. Something about the crisp and sinful bacon, mixed in with the runny yolk, fragrant buttered toast and mouthfuls of baked beans and mushrooms in between just brings such satisfaction. This decadence of multiple breakfast items takes a little more effort than your quick fix weekday breakfast and is perfect for that lazy weekend brunch. Not to mention this stuff fuels you for a full day ahead like nothing else!

3. Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes

Pancakes! Another staple weekend brunch item. The fluffy, doughy goodness of American Pancakes certainly makes it feel more like the weekend. You can dress them up or down as you wish, with fruits (e.g. raspberries, strawberries or banana), cream, honey or maple syrup. We personally love ours with a generous dollop of Bulla cream.

4. Soft Spinach Scrambled Eggs with Prosciutto

This list wouldn’t be complete without a scrambled egg recipe; and we have a great one here. Pillowy soft scrambled eggs mixed in with wilted spinach is a match made in brunch heaven. Throw on a few slices of prosciutto and it elevates the dish to a whole other level. We’d recommend serving with buttered, toasted thick brown bread (like sourdough or rye bread) to balance out the flavours.

5. Shashuka

For something a little more exotic, try making shashuka – a middle eastern breakfast dish that’s saucy, tangy and super satisfying with some toasted thick bread to soak up all that sauce and runny egg yolk. Best done in a cast iron pan and served straight to the table, otherwise cooking it in a regular pan and scooping it out to serve will do just fine as well.

6. Sweet Potato Breakfast Boats

For something a little more creative and fun, try these sweet potato breakfast boats. The idea is to scoop out some of the sweet potato filling, fill the hole with anything you fancy (e.g. bacon bits, spinach, chopped tomatoes etc.) and crack an egg on top of it. Pop it in the oven to bake, into sweet and savoury goodness. To add that extra brunch-y feel to it, slice up some avocado to serve along with it.
