Throw an Instagram-Worthy Brunch

Strawberries and Cream Pancakes
Brunch is all about the Instagram-ability. Each one of these recipes is so pretty, you'll be convinced it was made with hashtags in mind -- and they taste as good as they look. These brunch recipes, which include ingredients like sweet strawberries, spicy salsa, and crisp bacon, are #brunchgoals.

Stunning Display

From the drinks you sip to the plates you use to the food you eat, an Instagram-worthy brunch is all about the details. We love the simplistic color scheme and display of this crepe spread.

Nutty Honey Mini Rolls

Snap a photo of these mini cinnamon rolls before serving. They look best lined up neatly -- and the nutty-honey treat won't last long once you set them in front of your guests!

Sunrise Sippers

Make your own bottomless brunch. Pro tip: Snap a pic of these pretty drinks before you start sipping.

Ham, Asparagus, and Cheese Strata

When making this brunch recipe, keep in mind how you want each portion to look (and taste!). We recommend putting an egg in the center of each serving, then haphazardly framing the eggs with asparagus and ham.

Tropical Fruit Smoothie Bowls

Blend fruit, spinach, coconut milk, and honey together for a fruity and filling start to your morning. We recommend topping your bowl with stripes of each topping for a classic smoothie bowl Instagram. Post picture, mix it all together, and enjoy!

Cream and Simple

Simple cream-and-blush bouquets let your food do the talking while creating a calm, pretty backdrop for photos.

Rosemary-and-Lemon Cornmeal Doughnuts

Frost these delicious rosemary-and-lemon doughnuts as nicely as you can for a shot that's simple and clean. Then go ahead and devour as many of these healthy baked doughnuts as you'd like.

Creamy Fruit-Filled Crepes

This dish offers so many photo ops. Set up a crepe buffet complete with fruit, yogurt, whipped cream -- even savory toppings and filings like veggies, meats, herbs, and cheese. Once your guests have made their crepes, choose the prettiest plates to photograph -- then dig in!

Huevos Tacos con Queso

You don't have to leave your house to find a colorful, tasty breakfast taco. For best results, plate your dish, top with salsa and hot sauce, and immediately snap a photo. Your food will look the freshest right away, plus there won't be any left to photograph once you let your guests start eating!

Ginger-Peach Bellini

Homemade ginger syrup gives bellinis some zing, and a peach slice garnish gives your photo some flair.

Chocolate Waffles with Mocha Syrup

Key ingredients: chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. These rich waffles can be served as either brunch or dessert. For a stunning shot, scatter strawberries around the dish, then drizzle with mocha syrup and dust with powdered sugar.

Sunshine Toast with Bacon and Tomatoes

Set yourself up for a sunny day with this too-cute brunch dish. Keep the Instagram photo as simple as eggs and toast, and as crisp as bacon.

Pretty in Pink

Decorate votive vases with a swipe of paint, choose your favorite flowers (we like peonies and tulips), then set a few around your brunch table for a pop of color next to breads and pastries.

Huevos en Salsa

While it looks super complicated, this easy recipe will impress your Instagram followers. The soupy dish gets pretty messy once you serve it, so snap a photo while it's still in the skillet.

Strawberries and Cream Pancakes

In our opinion, you can never have too many strawberries. They're so sweet, super pretty, and guilt-free. Pile them on in this dish -- both for the look and the flavor.
