5 Recipes to Make This Weekend

Hunker down at home this weekend and craft these top picks from Food Network.

We would argue that one of the best parts of the weekend (aside from sleeping in and days off of work) are the seemingly unlimited possibilities surrounding breakfast. Sure, you can pour yourself a bowl of cereal like it’s any other morning, but we have a better idea: Take the time this weekend to hunker down at home and craft over-the-top breakfast foods that would make your brunch-going friends jealous. Read on below for a few of our favorite recipes.

Wake up on the sweet side of the bed this weekend by indulging in this truly decadent dish. What starts as a traditional loaf of homemade banana bread quickly transforms into a crowd-pleasing batch of warm waffles. Perhaps best of all? The rum-spiked caramel sauce that coats the banana topping.

Forget everything you thought you knew about doughnuts. These baked-not-fried delicacies are coated in cinnamon and sugar, and they’re as simple to make as they are delicious. And if you loved cinnamon toast as a child (or still do to this day), then this is a weekend project to get nostalgic about.

Served on a whole-wheat English muffin with vitamin-rich kale and dressed with a light mustard-laced Hollandaise sauce, this surprisingly healthy dish will leave you feeling guilt-free and oh so satisfied.

If you’re short on time but don’t want to skimp on style, opt for a dish that is oozing with elegance. All you need is eggs, smoked salmon and a sprinkle of chives to transform your weekend brunch.
