Kindness Brunch - Resources to inspire and tempt
Creating a brunch board
Some of us are not morning people and finding the time to cook a full meal for guests may not be your cup of tea. That’s where make-ahead recipes are handy.
Putting together a brunch board – a platter of simple dishes – is one fuss-free entertaining option to try. Guests can pick and choose from what’s on offer on the board and make their own brunch plate.
Brunch board options
Something sweet: locally baked muffins, croissants, Danish, donuts. Probably best bought on the morning of the brunch. Crumpets, waffles and bread for toasting might be bought the day before. Toast and serve with your favourite jams and spreads.
Eggs: pre-boil eggs and serve shell peeled cut in half and sprinkled with fresh pepper or prepare a bowl of scrambled egg.
Bacon: fry up some bacon strips and put on a plate with some brown paper underneath to absorb oil. You could substitute smoked salmon for the bacon or serve sliced ham. For those of us who want something less meaty, try ricotta and tomatoes or crushed avocado with a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper.
Yoghurt: serve little pots of yoghurt drizzled with honey and decorated with cut fruit, berries.
Seasonal fruit: decorate your brunch board with fresh fruit pieces, strawberries, grapes, etc.

- You could decorate your brunch using the letter K.
- Why not use our Kindness poster resources and Kindness Challenge calendar, which has examples of acts of kindness people can use for inspiration every day.
- Get your guests involved with a bring your own plate. Co-ordinate with guests what you will provide and what they might like to bring.
In the end, simply holding a brunch for family and friends and colleagues is an act of kindness.
