Brunch... everyone's talking about it! What's not to love about your favorite breakfast items served for lunch?

From low prep to from scratch, we have all your brunch for lunch needs covered! Here's some of our favorite brunch ideas for your schools:

Pillsbury™ Freezer-to-Oven Bakery

Nothing gets students excited to eat like the aroma of fresh baked goods! Our Pillsbury™ Place & Bake™ Muffin Tops and Pillsbury™ Freezer-to-Oven Whole Grain Cinnamon Roll help k-12 schools serve more of the fresh-baked items that students love! With no thawing or proofing required, you simply place and bake the muffins and cinnamon rolls before serving.

This product will give your brunch menu the artisan and scratch-like feel of a café all while saving you time and meeting regulations. Serve them as is, try out one of our recipes, or use left-over rolls to create a delicious fruit cobbler, either way your students are sure to crave this warm brunch option.

Biscuits

Hearty and delicious, Pillsbury™ biscuits make brunch a breeze. From Apple Pull-Aparts to a Monte Cristo Biscuit with strawberry jam, biscuits bring students’ favorite brunch flavors to your school menu. Available as dough or fully baked, and with 1 or 2 oz. equivalent grain serving sizes.

Mini Pancakes

Tried-and-true, pancakes win for the oldest brunch item. According to National Geographic their origin dates back to the Stone Age! (Although we doubt they were nearly as tasty as our Pillsbury Mini Pancakes.) These pancakes meet 2 oz equivalent grain, whole grain-rich criteria, and are CACFP eligible. You can thaw & Serve or Heat & Serve for a bite sized brunch entrée!

Our Layer Lab Recipe book has some of our favorite formulas for creating delicious parfaits – and you can also download free marketing tools to promote them!

With blueberry and maple flavors, our Pillsbury mini waffles are a great choice for your brunch for lunch menu! Serve with chicken tenders for a take on chicken 'n waffles or as a grab 'n go option for busy brunchers!
