What do you order for brunch ?

Ducks47Ducks47 Posts: 131Member Member Posts: 131Member Member
I’m going to brunch. Might try to be “healthy” and get an omelet or something or might get pancakes hahah. What do you guys order and why ? I don’t have a lot of brunch experience.

    I usually get some type of larger combo type platter. The places I normally go to I have: eggs (I get scrambled), pancakes, bacon, sausage, latkes or home fries, fruit and toast. I usually get that if I don't have a big dinner that night. Otherwise I go for eggs benedict with peameal, hollandaise on the side, home fries and fruit if I have a big dinner later that night. I don't go for brunch often so I like to go all out, even when I am deep in a deficit.

    If you want to have fairly lowish calories but still enjoy your brunch, I might go with:

    1. Eggs Benedict with hollandaise on the side (only use two tbsp, and take the sides home for another day)
    2. Two eggs with a side of crispy bacon
    3. Avocado toast, or something similar.

    Ask for fruit instead of breakfast potatoes or toast, and have coffee instead of brunch cocktails.

    HOWEVER. If you’re looking to have a fun brunch and you’re not paying attention to calories for this meal, go for something delicious like pancakes, chicken and waffles, biscuits and gravy, or a big ol’ omelette.

    Either way, enjoy!

    I typically get French toast if they have it because I do brunch like month a month and I’m going to enjoy it

    I have been to a brunch exactly once in my life! This was pre-MFP and I ate everything. No regrets, but if I were to go now, I would stick with the poached salmon, steamed veggies, and fresh fruit.

    Champagne or Bellinis!

    Everything else is just secondary.

    I'd go full English breakfast seeing as you have 2 meals worth of calories to eat!

    Is it a buffet, or are you ordering? I like ordering steak and eggs... at any time :smiley:

    2 eggs scrambled, ham, 1 slice whole wheat toast and black coffee. We go about twice a month for brunch.

    I don't like breakfast foods in the morning much so it doesn't really matter what I order. Maybe some kind of eggs or fruit.

    I get an egg white omelette with goat cheese, bacon, mushrooms and asparagus.
  • girlinahatgirlinahat Posts: 2,933Member Member Posts: 2,933Member Member
    depends where I am and what's on offer -
    • full english - but no nasty beans (and I'll have had a look at other plates to see if the sausages are any good)
    • salmon and avocado on toast (as long as the toast is some scrummy crusty bread)
    • omelette with a load of veggies in
    • shakshuka

    not really a pancake fan - would rather go heavy on the protein and veg side. I treat it like a light supper.

    no lie id go full breakfast hashbrowns pancakes bacon eggs and toast. I LOVE breakfast foods and never eat breakfast lol. The few times i go out where they have full breakfasts thats what i get. I tend to be starving the rest of the day when i eat all my calories early though to i guess depends whats worth it to you.

    We hardly ever go out for brunch - Mrs Jruzer is a great cook and baker so we usually have nice weekend breakfasts at home. So when we do go out, I get something we won't have at home.

    We just happened to go out for brunch last weekend and I got chicken and waffles with bourbon maple butter. It was [email protected] good and I have no regrets.

    This kind of thing I want a bit of everything - eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, toast, pancake. Hopefully there'll be some sharing available!

    I got eggs Benedict with ham and asparagus. Figured I can’t make this for myself. Was delicious. I’ll have to try steak and eggs!


    Thanks for all the input everyone. So many delicious meals

    I'm going to Easter brunch next Sunday. I only go once a year and this is my first cheat day in three months. I'm going to have bacon, eggs benedict, some shrimp, potatoes, mini muffins, waffles, a Sees candy chocolate marshmallow egg and the best part: unlimited champagne. I haven't had any alcohol since January either. It's gonna be good, really good.

    Took my mom put for brunch on Saturday and I got the mushroom and brie eggs Benedict despite it being 1240 calories. 🤷‍♀️
  • Ducks47Ducks47 Posts: 131Member Member Posts: 131Member Member
    Do they list calories at the restaurant you visited? I’m curious. They didn’t at mine.
