Brunch. That golden time of the weekend when there’s no such thing as “too late for breakfast” or “too early for lunch.” It’s when we get to shrug off all those mealtime norms and enjoy some of our favorite flavors together in one amazing gathering of friends and food. So who’s ready to host?
Before you call “Not it!”, check out these easy-to-make recipes featuring Panera favorites that are available in grocery stores. With inventive flavors and simple ingredients, you’ll be impressing your guests with your cooking prowess in no time.
But first, bagels: arguably the most essential of brunch staples, now available from Panera in three delicious flavors - plain, cinnamon swirl and everything. They're great with just some butter or cream cheese, or in tasty recipes created by our chefs, like Everything Bagel Breakfast Bites. Look for Panera bagels in the bread aisle where you buy groceries in the Northeast of the country.
Featuring: Panera Dark Roast Coffee
For a meal they’ll remember, it’s the details that matter. Add a little excitement to a breakfast staple with a simple glaze of maple syrup, brown sugar and Panera coffee.
Cheddar Potato Carrot Casserole

Who doesn’t love a cheesy casserole? Brunch wouldn’t be brunch without a bit of savory indulgence—and this dish serves it up deliciously. If eggs are your go-to for brunch, consider our Broccoli Cheddar Frittata - easy, satisfying, delicious.
Featuring: Panera Poppyseed Dressing
One of the best things about brunch is that you can enjoy a fresh salad alongside your breakfast favorites. This bright mix of flavors and colors brings together creamy avocado and sweet citrus for a salad that tastes as amazing as it looks.
Cinnamon Swirl Bagel French Toast

No brunch would be complete without something sweet. Cut the bagel halves into quarters and our bagel French toast becomes the perfect crowd pleaser. They’re an easy to make and indulgent twist on the traditional French Toast.
