With a cooler breeze in the air, favourite fall flavours are back on restaurant menus. Though appetizers, entrées and desserts typically get the love when it comes to seasonally updating your menu, brunch offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate the new season.
Fresh produce like apples, pumpkin and squash were made for pairing with comfort food brunch staples like waffles, fritters and French toast.
Highlight fall’s best by spicing up your brunch menu with spiced apple muffins, baked oatmeal stuffed acorn squash (served with cranberry sauce), or pumpkin pulled pork eggs Benedict.
Keep It Simple
LUDA’s Instant, Gluten-Free Hollandaise Sauce Mix features a slightly sweet flavour with lemony notes and butter flavour. It’s as versatile as it is vegetarian and certified Halal and Kosher.
Steam-table and freeze-thaw stable—no butter needed! The product prepares an opaque, medium thick, light yellow sauce, and its mild and slightly sweet flavour is balanced with a little heat and lemon notes.
