It’s hard to say no to brunch. The slow pace and endless variety of this meal – enjoyed mostly at the weekend – are what has made it so popular the world over. What’s more, because it’s not an everyday occurrence, brunch feels more fun, more sociable, more decadent.
Brunch after church can be a great choice. It will allow you to get together with friends and enjoy good food and great conversation. Getting together for fellowship over food is always a great way to engage with friends and family after church service. Most people do a lunch or dinner-style meal, and often choose something that’s potluck service—everyone brings something to share. Of course, that’s a lot of time and effort for people who may have otherwise busy lives. Today, that has led to more people eating out after church or considering other options.
If you haven’t been on social media, or you’ve avoided the midday world, you may be wondering, “What is brunch?” Or, you may already know what it is and are curious to learn more about this breakfast-lunch phenomenon that’s swept across the globe.
Before we learn about “What is brunch?” and “What time is brunch served?” We should look at the origins of brunch. The origin of brunch is a little murky. It’s hard to nail down who realized that champagne and French toast were a match made in heaven.
On a base level, brunch is the perfect blend of breakfast and lunch, a meal for breakfast foods and almost-midday cocktails. If some of the foods border on dessert, that's okay too. In this blog post we dive deep to learn what is brunch and how it started.
What is Brunch?
Brunch is a portmanteau of breakfast and lunch, coined by the British in the late 1800s and later popularised by Americans. But it wasn’t simply another meal. With the rise of the weekend, factory and office workers were able to stay up late on Friday and Saturday nights. The next day, when they inevitably woke up past the traditional breakfast hour, they sought out heartier fare that not only satisfied their hunger, but also continued the celebratory mood.
Well, for starters, it includes all the best breakfast foods, and who doesn’t like breakfast? For the naysayers, there’s also a list of lunch items on most brunch menus. There’s something for just about everyone, and no one has to put in all the work of cooking something to bring to the church luncheon.
What to eat at brunch.
The beauty of brunch is the quality and quantity of delicious options. The fare centres around a full English or American breakfast, with meats like sausage, bacon, ham and smoked salmon, along with sweet fare like pancakes, waffles, French toast and pastries. A must for brunch are egg dishes, especially Eggs Benedict: toasted English muffins topped with sliced ham, poached eggs and warm barbecue sauce. Hash browns and other fried potato dishes nicely round out the meal. For those seeking a lighter touch, there are fresh fruit juices, gelato and coffee. The most important aspect of brunch? That it offer a variety of sweets and savouries that taste wonderful together and is plentiful enough for two meals.
