Buckwheat crêpes are naturally gluten free and have a subtle, nutty flavor. Crêpes made with buckwheat flour are actually referred to as a Breton galette. It’s a specialty of the Brittany and Normandy regions of France.

These buttery savory scones are filled with cheddar, Monterey Jack, Asiago and Parmesan cheeses as well as with cured sausage, specifically sopressata, and chives. Savory scones like this make for a great “breakfast on the go” or for a quick snack.
These light and fluffy ricotta pancakes border on soufflé-like and are so moist they don’t even need syrup, especially when accompanied by the mixed berry compote.
The key to a good omelette is using a non-stick pan, lots of butter and the freshest eggs that you can find.
I once heard someone describe a frittata as an egg pizza and I decided I really like that description. I love making frittata for brunch because it does not take very long to prepare and every time I have made it I get rave reviews. It is also a great way to get rid of leftover veggies and meats. You can easily throw them together and get a great breakfast. If you want to add some meat to this vegetarian frittata, feel free to throw in some cooked bacon bits or sausage.
If you have never heard of harissa then I definitely recommend you try it! It is a spicy (but not "boiling lava hot" spicy) sauce or paste that is typically used in North African and Middle Eastern cooking. The sauce is a blend of hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as coriander, cumin, garlic and lemon. This is a great dish if you love eggs and tomato sauce (both separately or together) but are looking to impress your brunch guests with your worldliness. I'm calling it now, harissa will build a cult following that can rival the reigning condiment, Sriracha.
Only people from New Jersey know what Taylor Ham (otherwise known as pork roll) is and everyone else is missing out. Not only is it the best hangover cure; it is also the best breakfast sandwich ever. Since apparently it seems to be only a New Jersey phenomena, when I went to college in California I would make my mom bring it with her when she came to visit.
