Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and being that it is Sunday, we have to put out a post related to the best meal in the world, brunch! So we’ve found these crazy delicious brunch recipes that are to die for! Of course, the possibilities are endless, but if you’re looking for the best options for Valentine’s (or Galentine’s), then you’ve found it! Check out the gallery above for links to where you can find these gems!

The Art of Valentine’s Brunch

Crafting a Valentine’s brunch menu can be rewarding, but also stressful. First, start with the main event. This can be items like pancakes or waffles. Then, you need your sides! Think eggs or toast, or maybe eggs and toast! For some, bacon is a must, which is why we included bacon hearts on the list! Aren’t they the cutest?!?! Afterward, you need a sort of dessert. We chose the berry shortcake parfaits, but red velvet cinnamon rolls are a thing, and we highly recommend them! You can even get away with heart shaped cookies if you wanted to!

Now, no brunch is complete without a brunch drink. We’ve included a Valentine’s champagne in the list, but on our site, you can choose from the Single Ladies Martini or Cupid’s Boozy Mudslide. The menu should all come together, but the flavors shouldn’t overwhelm each other. For example, I wouldn’t include red velvet pancakes with cream cheese glaze as well as red velvet cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting. The two over power each other.

However, if you’re planning a huge Valentine’s brunch get together, having multiple red velvet items is not a bad idea, as long as they are broken up by non-red velvet foods, such as eggs or toast. That way you can do the event buffet style, and give your guests options. If this is a small and intimate get together, or just brunch for two, consider keeping the menu down to about four things, excluding drinks. Perhaps have one or two drinks, depending on the size of your party.

This is all about fun, so make sure you and your guests enjoy!
