Brunch on the Cheap

While Sunday does not carry the giddy relief of Friday or the chill lazy factor of Saturday, it holds the promise of brunch. And even if restaurant brunch is too hard on your wallet lately, no need to give up on Sunday. We have restaurant-style ideas you can put together at home. Bonus: Your house will be filled with the comforting smells of butter on toast, hot coffee and eggs baking in a casserole dish. So take a little time on Saturday to pull together the Do-Ahead Egg Bake above, and invite your squad.

And, if you hit snooze before your brunch crowd arrives, don’t panic. You may have lost your window for making egg casserole, but broken eggs are still in your future. Stir up this Tex-Mex version of scrambled eggs. Migas features crispy tostada shells mixed into the egg mixture along with (in our version) hot dogs. If there was ever a time for hot-dog-infused cheesy eggs, it’s the morning after you were up so late you blew off getting up for your own brunch party.
