5 Simple Brunch Recipes That Will Seriously Impress Your Guests

It’s hard to find a person out there who doesn’t love brunch.

After a long work week, it’s the perfect way to treat yourself and kick the weekend off right. And while it’s always fun to hit up your favourite brunch spot with your squad, there’s no reason why you can’t switch it up once in a while and make something at home.

Our go-to trick for a super quick meal? Mutti tomatoes. Pureed, peeled, finely chopped or in a paste, their products help us whip up a delicious brunch in no time. We also like their packaging innovation – pureed tomatoes come in a resealable glass bottle and the paste comes in a super convenient aluminum tube. So easy to use and no more waste.

Here are a few of our fave tomato-based brunch recipes.

Did you know that everyone’s favourite appetizer is surprisingly easy to make at home? Pro tip: prepare it the night before and keep it in the fridge – it’ll help the flavours meld together, and give your guests something to snack on while they wait for the main event. Recipe here.


I’ve been so excited to share these videos for a while and wanted to make sure they were just right! I love Shakshuka and I’m so happy I got to work with @mutti_pomodoro to bring you the first in a set of videos featuring some of their best products. I remember making Shakshuka for the first time after watching (a half finished) episode of a show on the food network and thinking it was just tomato sauce and eggs. I’m happy since then I’ve learned how to make it, and make it well! Hope you love these videos, and I can’t wait to share more of them with you.

This savoury Middle Eastern breakfast dish will have your guests thinking you’re the second coming of Martha Stewart, but is actually deceptively easy to prepare. Plus, it’s a little more inspired than your basic bacon and eggs, so you’ll get bonus points for creativity. Recipe here.

For a simple recipe like this, quality ingredients make all the difference. Get the freshest herbs you can find and don’t skimp on the cheese. Also, try topping it with some fresh parsley and cracked black pepper to up the wow factor on your presentation. Recipe here.

Savoury Crepes

Since brunch is typically an egg-heavy meal, vegans might feel a little left out. Well, not anymore – these stuffed crepes with Moroccan chickpeas and a spicy tomato sauce are vegan, gluten free (if you sub out the whole wheat flour), and most importantly, delicious. Recipe here.
