What To Serve With Mimosas – 45 BEST Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your mimosas, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 45 of the most popular side dishes for mimosas.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with mimosas are spinach and mushroom frittata, ham and cheese croissants, French toast casserole, eggs benedict, or avocado and grapefruit salad. For appetizers, go with bacon twists, smoked salmon crostini, or Mediterranean pinwheels.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Eggs benedict

Eggs Benedict is an absolute classic and the original ‘eggs on muffins with hollandaise sauce’ dish.

If you’re a vegetarian you can swap the ham for spinach (eggs florentine), or get fancy and use smoked salmon (eggs royale).

Psst… serve a light green salad on the side to balance out the rich hollandaise sauce.

Why we love this recipe: it includes a foolproof recipe for homemade hollandaise sauce.

Meyer lemon sweet rolls

If you’re a lemon lover, these rolls are a must-try. 

They’re filled with a sticky lemon caramel sauce that adds sweet, citrusy goodness to every bite.

And after they come out of the oven, the rolls are glazed with tart lemon icing for maximum lemony goodness. 

Why we love this recipe: these rolls will flood your kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma as they bake.

Avocado and grapefruit salad

Tired of the usual leafy salads? Give this recipe a try.

It looks amazing on the plate, and the flavors meld perfectly.

The creaminess from the avocado balances out the tart grapefruit, and the simple vinaigrette brings everything together. 

Why we love this recipe: it’s clean and super refreshing.

Mediterranean pinwheels

These dainty pinwheels are an excellent finger food to serve with your mimosas.

They’re super easy to make and involve almost zero cooking (except for the spinach).

And can you believe there’s three different cheeses stuffed in there?!

Psst… use a serrated knife to cut perfect slices. 

Why we love this recipe: they’re vegetarian-friendly.

Smoked salmon crostini

Mimosas are a brunch staple, just like smoked salmon. 

The two go perfectly together. This recipe keeps things simple and highlights the salmon with a dab of cream cheese and lightly pickled cucumbers.

Pro tip: these are best eaten within an hour, so plan accordingly. You don’t want the crostini to get soggy.

Why we love this recipe: these crostini look and taste gourmet.

Baked hash brown cups

Everyone loves hash browns, which makes them a solid choice for your brunch menu.

Making hash browns usually involves lots of oil and frying, but these handy treats are baked instead – meaning they’re easy to cook and healthier.

And they’re freezer friendly so you can make them well ahead of time.

Why we love this recipe: it has a 4.6 rating from 209 reviews.

Triple berry cheesecake muffins

These aren’t your ordinary berry muffins. 

The creamy cheesecake layer adds a delectable tang, while the crumb topping brings extra buttery goodness.

They do require more work, but after one bite it’ll all be worth it.

Cap off your indulgent cheat day brunch with a glass of mimosa. 

Why we love this recipe: these are Insta-worthy.

Fig and prosciutto pizza

A fancy drink calls for a fancy bite to eat.

And you can’t get much more fancy-sounding than a fig and prosciutto pizza.

The salty prosciutto balances out the sweet fig wonderfully, and then a drizzle of honey finishes the dish off.

If you wanna add even more flavor, use hot (spicy) honey instead.

Why we love this recipe: it’s brimming with the flavors of fall.

Arugula salad

If you’re putting on a spread, a simple side salad is a must-have.

And you only need 6 ingredients to make this one (including the dressing!).

Pro tip: because there’s not many ingredients in this salad, make sure you use high quality options.

Why we love this recipe: you can get it on the table in 15 minutes.

Spinach and mushroom frittata

Frittata is endlessly customizable, which makes it great for parties.

This recipe goes for a veggie mix of spinach, mushrooms, and feta. But other options include goats cheese and pesto, Southwest themed, or a hearty asparagus and bacon frittata.

To serve, slice the frittata into small squares.

Why we love this recipe: it’s hearty but won’t weigh you down.

Banana zucchini bread

Shredded zucchini may not be a traditional ingredient for banana bread, but it’s a great addition.

It adds so much moisture you’re guaranteed to avoid a dry result.

Psst… I like to serve this with a delicious flavored butter.

Why we love this recipe: it freezes really well so you can always have some to hand.

Asparagus with balsamic glaze

Brunch can be a heavy meal with lots of rich, sweet foods.

So this light asparagus dish will be a welcome addition.

And the best part? You only need 5 ingredients to make it (4 if you don’t fancy the cheese).

Why we love this recipe: it will brighten up your meal.

French toast casserole

Want to start your day on a sweet note? Pair your mimosas with a serving of this casserole. 

This dish involves soaking bread cubes in an egg mixture to make them delightfully soft and fluffy. Overnight is best, but if you’ve only got 1 or 2 hours that’s okay too.

And to finish it off, the casserole is stopped with delicious pecan streusel.

Why we love this recipe: it’s great for feeding a crowd.

Toasted ham and cheese croissant sandwich

I was obsessed with ham and cheese croissants for about a year.

The croissants are oh-so-flaky and buttery, turning the classic ham and cheese combo into a decadent treat. 

And this recipe elevates the dish with additions like fig butter and microherbs.

Why we love this recipe: these look like they came from a high-end cafe.

Bacon twists

These twists are flavored with sugar and cayenne pepper, giving your savory bacon a spicy twist.

And they couldn’t be simpler to make – just twist each bacon slice, season, and bake. 

It’s that easy.

Why we love this recipe: bacon makes everything better.
