This weekend, it’s all about getting restaurant-quality eats in your own kitchen so you can get excited about what you’re eating. First up on Saturday morning, Bobby Flay is sharing an on-the-go brunch menu to help you eat heartier in the morning without needing extra time. Don’t miss his easy omelet burrito and cheddar-bacon waffle sandwiches on a new episode of Brunch @ Bobby’s. After that, The Kitchen co-hosts are spilling restaurant secrets that will make your food taste better, plus recipes for stuffed-crust pizza and crispy fish tacos.

On Sunday morning, there’s another new Brunch @ Bobby’s, all about new takes on waffles, like cornbread waffles and even glazed doughnut waffles. Then, on Sunday night, it’s a new Guy’s Grocery Games, with teams of total strangers. After that, Katie Lee and Jeff Mauro join All-Star Academy as guest professors as the home cooks are challenged with creating a dish with only seven ingredients from the pantry and one surprise ingredient. And finally, Alton Brown’s got a brand-new slate of sabotages planned on Cutthroat Kitchen.

Bobby’s Rolled Omelet Burritos are tasty and fun, as are his addictive Cheddar and Bacon Waffle Sandwiches. His Yogurt-Fruit Muffins with a Bran Crumb Topping are sure to inspire. And save room for a creamy, healthy smoothie as you're darting out the door, because his Blueberry-Pomegranate Yogurt-Honey Smoothie is out of this world!
