Hello sports fans!  I am so excited that football preseason is finally underway, because that means the regular season is almost here!   And now’s the time to start planning your tailgate or “homegate” game day parties.

What to do when your game has an early start time, and it just seems too early for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill?   Brunch, of course!

So here are 12 brunch recipes worth considering for your party.

We’ll start with a few healthy bites, like this Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bark from Go Eat and Repeat:

And these Breakfast Tailgate Fruit Kabobs from Mom Endeavors:


Prepping some food ahead of time makes things much easier come game day, so how about trying these Make Ahead Breakfast Quesadilla with Cheese Spinach and White Beans from Well Plated:

Or make these Banana and Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal Cups from Organize Yourself Skinny the day before:

Things you can hold in your hands are great options for a tailgate brunch, like the To-Go Breakfast Quesadillas from Buzzfeed Tasty:

And what would brunch be without bacon?  DIY Gourmet Bacon from Around My Family Table looks SO good!  The hard part is deciding which flavor to try!


And while we are on the topic of bacon, how about Maple Bacon Breakfast Pie from Tablespoon?  It would be best for an at home party, because I’m pretty sure you’ll want to eat it on a plate with a knife and fork:

These Egg and Sausage Breakfast Taquitos from Tastes Better From Scratch look yummy:

No brunch is complete without some good things to drink, and for many of you it’s just a little early for beer.  How about the Mocha Punch from All Recipes:

Or the Strawberry Lemonade Punch from the Frugal Girls:




Do you ever have game day parties that take place in the morning?  Do you change up your menu to be more “brunch” than “lunch”?  Comment below and let me know!

Until next week,
