Before you plan your next brunch during the holiday season, be sure to grab some of these fall brunch ideas to make.

I’m sharing delicious recipes that are some of my favorites and they are packed with the best sweet and savory autumn flavors. 

Oh how cooler weather ignites my taste buds. I love hearty soups and stews in the fall and winter months, but don’t even get me started on the sweets!

Pumpkin, Cranberries, and pies take over my sweet tooth in the fall. And I’m not mad about it.

What to Serve at a Fall Brunch

Whether you are planning fall breakfast ideas or hosting a gathering of friends, a fall brunch is such a fun way to enjoy the flavors of the season. 

You can keep it simple with French toast and maple syrup or spice it up by having your guests each bring a family favorite to share. 

The best way to celebrate is together! Classic fall flavors include everything from sweet potatoes and butternut squash to pumpkin spice, hot coffee, and fresh fruit. 

Savory foods like cheese and egg dishes, bacon, and sausage are always a welcome addition to the sweet treats full of cinnamon sugar, syrup and pumpkin puree.

  1. That picture of the Pumpkin Spice Latte looks so delicious, i love starbucks and have never had one of these! Im going to have to try it.

  2. AHA!!! I KNEW it!! I’ll be watching you this Christmas! We will ALL GO TOGETHER to check on the baby. šŸ™‚

  3. I do love those croissants, and I haven’t had boysenberry smiles in…I don’t know how long! Mom…………………….?

  4. I’m so ready for fall food. We’ve already had chili, bake chocolate chip pumpkin muffins and I discovered the Salted Caramel Chocolate Cream at Starbucks!

  5. The Cran-orange Croissant pinwheels are one of my FAVs. You got me hooked on them several years ago. Every time I take it to a party, people devour them! Well, now I’m hungry for some sweets. lol!

  6. Now that fall is here, I am craving an applie pie and apple dumplings! Our local Apple Days is going on this weekend, so I am going to head out and buy the apple dumplings that our local Boy Scouts make. I am going to have to get up early on Saturday to get them because they sell out fast! Hopefully I can get some apples too and make the apple pie using my mom’s recipe.

  7. You and I have the same taste buds. I love crock pot cooking in the fall, and found a great recipe that I will share soon, but I also love to make my grandma’s soup in the fall/winter and the beginning of spring, but mostly fall and winter. I’ll link it up. I do have that recipe already on line. If I have any more, I’ll include it. I also love to make spaghett, and the other night, I made beef stroganaoff, but have perfected that recipe yet.

    1. I meant to write “spaghetti” and to say that I have not perfected the stroganoff recipe yet. Perhaps I shouldn’t comment on blogs in the early am before I have my tea. Sorry about that. I’m also linking up the Pizza-Spaghetti Casserole. It’s really good.
