Hosting a Brunch

Learn how to host a perfect brunch!

Prepare a memorable brunch for all your guests when you learn from me, Chef Addie Gundry, the best way to serve a fun and delicious brunch meal.

COOKING CLASS: Hosting a Brunch

Dear Aspiring Chef,

There’s no meal more synonymous with relaxation than brunch. When you hear the word, you picture rolling out of bed after getting a good night’s sleep to enjoy a mimosa and cinnamon roll on a peaceful sunny morning.

Brunch is a meal that’s filled with joy—and with this class, I’ll show you how to host a memorable brunch. I’ll show you exactly what I’d suggest for a full brunch menu from eggs and bacon to Bloody Marys and sandwiches.

My entertaining expertise will be in full effect as I discuss tips for being a welcoming host—from table setting to presentation, I’ll show you how to set the stage for a brunch that all your guests will be talking about for ages.

And you’ll also learn about the best dishes to serve at your brunch—all in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Hosting a Brunch streaming-video cooking class with me, Chef Addie Gundry!

Let’s start with a unique “Bloody Mary” that you can make for yourself before your guests arrive—that will be good practice for when you have to make them for the guests later.

First, you’ll see how to set up your glass and ice for proper mixing when items are added; then I’ll show you how to pour all the ingredients, in sequence, into your glass and mix with your celery stick. And then there’s lots of lemon—squeezed juice and wedges. Finally, I’ll show you how to garnish your tangy Bloody Mary with blue cheese–stuffed olives, pepperoncini, and easy-to-make “Candied Bacon”— voilà, the ultimate brunch Bloody Mary! You’ve never had a Bloody Mary like this before!

If you’re looking for the best ways to host a memorable brunch, view this cooking class, Hosting a Brunch, right now—one of many classes in the RecipeLion Cooking Club’s Library!

And the Hosting a Brunch class includes six total recipes with all of the specific instructions and tips you need, so that it’s clear and easy for you to host an impressive brunch at your house. In addition to the “Bloody Mary” and “Candied Bacon” recipes, you’ll get:

  • Easy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks—Do you love French Toast as much as I do? It’s easier than you may think, and I have a great way to make them with Texas Toast as sticks! Since you’re using a smaller portion size than a traditional full piece of bread, this makes for a tasty and crispy treat. Drizzle with maple syrup, and you’ll have a delicious—and unique—addition to your brunch. And literally, you can make these in mere minutes and keep them warm in your oven until serving time.
  • Breakfast Puff Pastry Pizza—Pizza for brunch? You bet! And using puff pastry as your crust, it’s easy peasy. Cheese, spinach, and whole eggs cooked on top of the puff pastry make for an unbelievably delicious brunch dish. Using store-bought puff pastry makes crust preparation easy and unique, and the rest is a cinch, too. What a great way to impress your guests!

And to complete your Hosting a Brunch class, you’ll get two more recipes and a detailed diagram of the proper way to set your table:

  • Layered Ham and Cheese Croissant Casserole—A new twist on a breakfast sandwich—as a casserole! Super simple to prepare, and you can even do all the prep the night before (it needs to refrigerate for at least 4 hours before baking). A real crowd-pleaser!
  • Banana Pudding Breakfast Parfaits—These tasty dishes are made in small glass jars, to be served as a walk-around item at your casual brunch—or, with a lid and decorative ribbon, as a take-home treat for your guests when they leave. Delicious and nutritious!
  • Formal Place Setting Chart—Get my one-page chart that succinctly shows you exactly where to properly place all the dishes, glassware, and silverware for your fabulous brunch.

Along with your video class, you’ll get the accompanying digital Cookbook that includes all the class’s recipes and instructions in written form with representative drawings of the dishes, plus the “Formal Place Setting” chart—read it all on any device or print it out for easy use in your own kitchen.

And your Charter Membership in the RecipeLion Cooking Club with Chef Addie Gundry instantly gives you full access to the entire library of cooking classes, recipes, and special collections. Additional cooking classes include:

  • How to Cook Eggs—Once you’ve mastered eggs, you’ve mastered one of the most basic, comprehensive skills to being an effective cook.
  • Cast Iron Recipes—Cast irons are one of those magical kitchen appliances that experienced cooks talk about with a sense of reverence.
  • All About Lemons—If there’s one ingredient that can brighten up a meal, it has to be lemons.
  • How to Cook Seafood—While some cooks feel like they have a pretty good handle on burgers, chicken, and pork chops, seafood can be a whole different ballgame.
  • Affordable Cuts of Meat—When you’re looking to feed an entire family for a week, you need to cook new and interesting dishes while also making sure it’s nutritious and fits within your budget.
  • And many, many more!
