These gluten free brunch recipes are full of savory and sweet foods that are perfect for brunch. Whether it is a fancy brunch with your friends or a relaxed brunch with family, these recipes will be a huge hit.
I love to create memories and traditions that we will remember for years. Food is a great way to do that. For holidays and special occasions, I make a big deal about it.
Food can create great memories because you can bond with others over a delicious meal or treat. You can share your favorite recipes and try out new ones. My mom and I bonded over cooking, and now my children and I do the same.
Brunch is full of tasty breakfast foods, but it can be challenging for those on a gluten-free diet. Typically you will see muffins, bagels, French toast, and other foods that are full of gluten at brunch.

Tips for success
- Share yummy foods – If you are hosting a brunch, asking others to bring their favorite recipes is okay. People want to help, so go ahead and ask!
- Ask about allergies – You are already thinking about those with gluten intolerance but also want to check for any other allergies. These recipes can be modified for dairy-free and vegan diets.
- Store leftovers for later – If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container. Sometimes I will make a double batch of things to ensure I have leftovers.
- Serve fresh fruit – Fresh fruit is a staple at brunch. A tasty fruit salad is always a good idea. You can also serve the fruit with greek yogurt to make a yogurt parfait.
What are the most popular brunch foods?
You will find a variety of foods at brunch, but typically you will find a mix of breakfast foods and sandwiches. For example, eggs of any kind are typical (omelets, scrambled eggs, eggs Benedict).
Pancakes, waffles, and French toast are also brunch staples. You can get creative with what you make and serve, so have fun with it. Make your favorite recipes and you will be set.
When is the best time to host brunch?
Typically, brunch is served anytime between 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The word brunch is a play on the words “breakfast” and “lunch,” so anytime between breakfast and lunchtime is a good time to serve brunch.
Depending on where you live, brunch could be later in the day. In the city, sometimes brunch can be served until 4:00 PM. It depends on how late you were up the night before.
Ways to enjoy
These recipes are a great addition to our girls brunch and Halloween brunch. Besides the food, the best thing about brunch is coming up with a theme. Any of these gluten free breakfast recipes are perfect for any themed brunch.
A big part of brunch is the drinks, which can be alcoholic. We love mocktails around here, especially our virgin mimosa recipe and virgin mojito recipe. Another brunch classic is a non-alcoholic bloody Mary mocktail.
