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 dishes to serve with 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.
Savory brunch favorites
Mimosas are the quintessential brunch drink, so it’s a no-brainer to enjoy them alongside everyone’s favroite breakfast dishes like frittata, bacon, and hash browns.
Eggs Benedict and mimosas are a match made in brunch heaven. I especially like pairing this egg dish with a grapefruit mimosa. Its tart, sweet notes are exactly what you need to cut through the richness of yolk and hollandaise sauce, plus the saltiness of the Canadian bacon.
Will Cook For Smiles’ recipe is a classic, but there are other variations you can try. If you’re a vegetarian, swap the ham for spinach (eggs florentine), or get fancy and use smoked salmon (eggs royale).
Why we love this recipe: it includes a foolproof recipe for homemade hollandaise sauce.
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 hash brown cups are baked instead. They’re easier to make because the oven does the work, and they’re healthier too.
But the best part? These hash brown cups freeze well. Meaning you can make a big batch and freeze the extras, so you’ll always have these treats ready to go.
Why we love this recipe: it has a 4.6 rating from 209 reviews.
Spinach and mushroom frittata
Frittata is another classic breakfast food that’s guaranteed to be a hit at your brunch party.
The great thing about frittatas is you can easily customize them to your preference. Djalali Cooks sticks with a tried-and-tested combo of spinach and mushrooms in their frittata. The mushrooms add a meaty bite, while the spinach leaves bring lots of nutrients.
Enjoy a slice of this loaded frittata with a glass of mimosas for a tasty meal that’ll keep you satisfied all day.
Why we love this recipe: it’s hearty but won’t weigh you down.
Toasted ham and cheese croissant sandwich
I was obsessed with ham and cheese croissants for about a year. After all, who can say no to savory, salty goodness stuffed in between flaky, buttery layers?
But Bev Cook’s recipe doesn’t stop there. She also adds fig butter for a bit of sweetness and micro greens for a fresh bite that balances everything.
These ingredients can be hard to find but don’t worry, I’ve also made this croissant sandwich with fig jam and arugula and it still tasted fabulous.
Why we love this recipe: these look like they came from a high-end cafe.
This recipe from Amanda’s Cookin’ takes bacon to the next level – which I didn’t think was possible! And it’s surprisingly easy too.
All you need to do is twist the bacon slices, season them with sugar and cayenne pepper, then bake them.
Under the oven’s high heat, the bacon twists crisp up and the seasoning caramelizes, giving you a delicious sweet-salty combo and a mildly spicy kick that pairs well with fruity mimosas.
Why we love this recipe: bacon makes everything better.
Sweet brunch favorites
If you’re more of a pancakes and waffles kind of person for brunch, you’re in luck.
These sweet brunch favorites go amazingly well with mimosas. Although I’d go with a tarter version of the drink to offset the sweetness from these treats.
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. Sounds divine, right?
Pro-tip: can’t find Meyer lemons? You can use regular lemons for this recipe.
Why we love this recipe: these rolls will flood your kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma as they bake.
Triple berry cheesecake muffins
These aren’t your ordinary berry muffins.
Pinch of Yum’s recipe involves sandwiching a cheesecake mixture between two layers of muffin batter. It’s simple but this mixture adds a delectable tang that’ll have you coming back for more.
Wash down all the buttery, berry goodness with a tart grapefruit mimosa to cap off your cheat day brunch meal.
Why we love this recipe: these are Insta-worthy.
Banana zucchini bread
You might think this is an odd combo, but hear me out. Shredded zucchini adds so much moisture to the banana bread, guaranteeing you won’t end up with a dry crumb. And don’t worry, you’ll hardly taste the zucchini because of its mild flavor.
I am Baker keeps this recipe simple, but I also like folding in mini chocolate chips in the batter for added sweetness.
Why we love this recipe: it freezes really well so you can always have some on hand.
French toast casserole
Want to start your day on a sweet note? Pair your mimosas with a serving of this Frech toast casserole.
This dish involves soaking bread cubes overnight in an egg mixture to make them delightfully soft and fluffy. But if you’ve only got 1 or 2 hours, that’s okay too.
And to finish it off, the casserole is topped with delicious pecan streusel. YUM.
Why we love this recipe: it’ll have everyone lining up for seconds.
Mimosas aren’t only a brunch staple – they’re great for parties too.
Their slightly citrusy flavor is exactly what you need to cleanse your palate between snacks.
These dainty pinwheels are 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 are three different kinds of cheese stuffed in there?
Pro-tip: use a serrated knife to create the perfect slices.
Why we love this recipe: they’re vegetarian-friendly.
Smoked salmon crostini
Smoked salmon is a brunch staple like mimosas, but it’s also a fabulous ingredient to use in crostinis.
Its deep smoky flavor, combined with the crisp cucumbers and the zesty cream cheese spread make for an addictive crostini topping.
The only catch with this appetizer is you can only make these about two hours ahead of time. Any longer and the crispy bread slices will go soggy.
Why we love this recipe: these crostini look and taste gourmet.
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 want to add even more flavor, use hot (spicy) honey instead.
Why we love this recipe: it’s brimming with the flavors of fall.
French onion beef sliders
These are a little fancier than your usual sliders, but they’re just as easy to make.
Cooking ground beef with caramelized onions infuses the meat with a subtly sweet note that will remind you of French onion soup. Another key ingredient in these sliders is the gruyere cheese, which will give you the most satisfying cheese pull ever.
Pair these sliders with a glass of mimosa for the ultimate treat.
Why we love this recipe: these sliders can easily feed a crowd.
Leafy salads are a good choice if you prefer a lighter meal, but you can also opt for a starch-based salad if you want something more substantial.
This arugula salad is one of my favorites to make. It only calls for six ingredients, dressing included.
What I like about this salad is how easy it is to customize. You can easily swap the pine nuts for walnuts, almonds, or even pepitas.
I personally like adding smoked salmon or roasted chickpeas to beef this salad up.
Why we love this recipe: you can get it on the table in 15 minutes.
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.
Enjoy this salad with a side of mimosas and grilled chicken for a refreshing summer meal.
Why we love this recipe: it’s clean and super refreshing.
