Brunchin’ Ain’t Easy: May Menu Ideas for the Seasonal Savvy

Ah, brunch. The perfect meal for those who can’t quite commit to breakfast or lunch. And what better time to brunch than in May, when the weather’s nice and the produce is fresh? Here are some brunch menu ideas to inspire your next lazy Sunday feast (or Wednesday, no judging!).

  1. “Egg-citing” Omelettes: You can’t go wrong with a classic omelette, but why not mix things up with some seasonal ingredients? Try a mushroom and asparagus omelette, or a spinach and goat cheese omelette. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, throw in some ramps or 3-cornered leeks or fiddle head ferns for a true springtime flavour explosion.
  2. “Berry” Delicious Pancakes: Who doesn’t love pancakes? But let’s be real, plain old pancakes are so last season. Spice things up with some fresh berries. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries – take your pick! And don’t forget to top them with some homemade whipped cream for an extra touch of decadence.
  3. “Avo-lutely” Amazing Toast: Avocado toast is the quintessential brunch dish these days, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Try adding some sliced radishes or a poached egg for some extra pizzazz. And if you really want to take it to the next level, sprinkle on some Everything Bagel seasoning. Trust us, it’s a game-changer.
  4. “Quiche Me” Quick: Quiche is the perfect brunch food – it’s easy to make, feeds a crowd, and can be customised to suit any taste. For a May-inspired quiche, try incorporating some fresh herbs like chives or tarragon, or some spring vegetables like peas or ramps. And of course, don’t forget the cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.
  5. “Scone” with the Wind: Scones are another classic brunch staple, but they can be a bit dry and crumbly if you’re not careful. I am a big fan of traditional British scones made with butter, instead of the versions that use buttermilk or cream. And as for flavours, the sky’s the limit. Lemon-poppy seed, blueberry, cherry-almond…just don’t forget the clotted cream and jam.

There you go, some May brunch ideas to get your taste buds tingling. And remember, brunchin’ ain’t easy, but someone’s gotta do it.
