Why use day-old bread to make your breakfast strata when you can use leftover all-butter croissants? (If leftover croissants are a thing at your house.) Meet the Double Ham and Cheese Croissant Strata, with layers of honey ham, cheddar cheese, and Compliments Smoked Black Forest Ham.
For a crowd-pleasing option to suit both the kids’ and adults’ tables, try topping your eggs Benny with bacon. Or, if you’re looking to change the game and treat your guests to something extra special, get your claws on some succulent lobster tail from our Seafood Dept.–steamed for you while you shop*! Lastly, don’t skip the hollandaise sauce; it completes the dish. Learn how to make a simple hollandaise here.
*We offer free in-store steaming of lobsters, where available.
You’ve got the breakfast omelette down, but have you tried a strata? A layered casserole dish usually including bread, egg, and cheese, a strata is almost like a savoury bread pudding. It will feed a crowd and stick with you into the day until the next meal.
Whether it’s Christmas morning, New Year’s Day or any time in between that you need to whip up a special brunch dish, no one will be able to say no to this strata’s custardy layers of croissants and colourful berries.
French toast made with Compliments Egg Nog, stuffed with sweet orange marmalade, cream cheese, and dried cranberries—does anything sound better for a Christmas morning breakfast? Tip: While this recipe calls for multigrain bread, you can easily replace it with any bread of your choosing; we’d suggest a rich brioche from our Bakery Dept. for extra elegance.
This breakfast pastry is ultra-easy (just 15 minutes of prep!). Slice up this wreath and watch guests exclaim over cream cheese filling with sugary strawberries loaded into a warm flaky crust, all drizzled in a sweet glaze.
