Lox and bagels!
But first things first. What really makes a brunch a brunch is the drinks. We celebrated brunch on this particular day on Easter Sunday with my dad and step mom, who were visiting for the weekend. A couple weeks prior, we had had mimosas and bloody Mary's for a brunch celebration for Seth's birthday and I knew we needed them again on this day. I'm not picky with my champagne for the mimosas (hence the Andre), but you could definitely spend a little more money and get something a little classier.
I personally don't really like tomato juice, so I stuck to my mimosa, but the other adults opted for the bloody Mary's and weren't sorry.
As much as I would have loved to just have a variety of mimosas for brunch, we did have food too! We stuck to a simple spread of lox and bagels. We got all of the ingredients at Costco and loved that we picked up everything we needed at one stop. These lox were some of the best I've ever had (isn't everything at Costco just the best??). I love to pair it with an everything bagel, topped with cream cheese and tomato and on this particular day... avocado as well! Avocado is one of my very favorite things so I don't know why it took me so long to pair it with lox and bagels. Needless to say, I helped myself to seconds.
This is a simple, easy brunch recipe sure to satisfy all of your guests! It was even toddler tested and toddler approved. #winning.
While lox and bagels is one of my all time favorite brunch meals, I also love to have challah french toast (THE best), pancakes or waffles, or even just a good omelet on occasion for brunch. We don't really do "fancy" very often, but when we do, it's always one of my favorites! I also have TONS of ideas pinned to one of my various Pinterest boards that I'd love to try one day, but that requires a bit more thought and preparation. Maybe one day!
