Breakfast Bruschetta Bar for the Holidays

Hosting family and friends can be a lot of work, but this Breakfast Bruschetta Bar for the Holidays will make your life much easier! A simple and delicious way to entertain your guests this season. 

The holiday season is wonderful but, boy, can it be stressful. Baking cookies, making hostess gifts, cooking multi-course meals for family and friends—some of whom are even staying at your home—it's A LOT. So how do you keep the season special and wonderful, while still being able to have time with your loved ones? With this easy Breakfast Bruschetta Bar! 

Picture it: Christmas morning and you've got a day of food prep and cooking ahead of you. You've also got a houseful of kids on break from school, plus visiting family and friends who are crashing at your place. The last thing you want to do is cook everyone breakfast, right? So just throw together this fun, colorful, and easy bruschetta bar and everyone can make their own breakfasts!

Assembling this beautiful bar of fabulous ingredients is easy with a trip to my local Stop and Shop! It's got freshly-baked breads, delicious cheeses and meats, gourmet jams, nuts and nut butters, as well as fresh organic and conventional produce. Talk about one-stop shopping!

Of course, the holidays can also get expensive, so why not save some money while you're buying groceries?

Assembling your Breakfast Bruschetta Bar for the holidays is incredibly easy. Put all your toppings in various bowls and plates—they don't all have to match! Remember, this is a fabulous meal but, more importantly, it's casual. Go for a combination of sweet and savory, crunchy and creamy choices. Toast a bunch of baguette slices and let everyone make their own delicious little toasts.

Here's what I put out on my breakfast bruschetta bar: black grapes, raspberries, jam, nutella, peanut butter, hard-boiled eggs, ricotta, crumbled goat cheese, grape tomatoes, guacamole (I bought Stop and Shop's yummy prepared version!), garlic herb cheese spread, my homemade Crazy Easy Whole Cranberry Sauce, chopped fresh chives, candied pecans.

Here are some of the combinations I made:


Have you ever had peanut butter with bacon? You should, trust me...

Nutella swirled with peanut butter is heaven...

How about guacamole with tomatoes and bacon? Or Nutella with candied pecans? Ricotta with my homemade whole cranberry sauce is amazing. Herbed cheese spread with egg, bacon and chives is totally delish. And a candied pecan takes PB&J to a whole new level...

So, how can you put together your own breakfast bruschetta bar this holiday season? Try choosing a few ingredients from each of these categories:

Spreads: soft cheeses like ricotta, goat cheese, or brie; prepared cheese spreads; guacamole; hummus; jam; nut butters

Pre-cooked toppings: bacon, sausage, deli ham, salami, prosciutto, sliced hard-boiled eggs

Fruits and veggies: grapes, berries, figs, tomatoes, fresh herbs, whole cranberry sauce, leftover roasted or grilled veggies

Nuts and dried fruits: candied or salted nuts (pecans, peanuts, walnuts), dried fruits (cranberries, dates, apricots)

Use your $5 off at Stop and Shop to buy a wonderful selection of ingredients that your friends and family would love, put them out on the table, and just let everyone mix and match. It's that simple! Such an easy and interactive way for loved ones to gather, talk, create delicious food together, and  spend time with each other during the wonderful—but oh-so-busy—holiday season. Have fun with it and happy holidays!
