s warmer weather ap­proaches, so do a va­ri­ety of oc­ca­sions. If you’re look­ing for an easy way to cel­e­brate with fam­ily and friends, brunch is a per­fect op­tion.

Not too early and not too late, every­one can en­joy a hearty meal and good com­pany be­fore the day gets busy. A brunch menu can in­clude both el­e­gant op­tions and clas­sic fa­vorites, so it’s easy to cus­tom­ize to fit the oc­ca­sion and your guests’ pref­er­ences.

With so many pos­si­bil­i­ties, brunch is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to get creative. De­velop your own ver­sions of tra­di­tional dishes by in­cor­po­rat­ing new in­gre­di­ents, such as us­ing duck ba­con to change up your menu and add some ex­tra flair.

With a rich, hearty tex­ture, duck ba­con is more like pork ba­con than tra­di­tional poul­try ba­cons. Made from duck breast meat, it brings a touch of so­phis­ti­ca­tion to any menu item. Plus, duck ba­con is health­ier for you, too. With 26 per­cent less sodium and 57 per­cent less fat than tra­di­tional pork ba­con, it’s the per­fect way for you to en­joy great fla­vor with­out the ex­tra calories.

For an ex­cit­ing added el­e­ment, use duck ba­con with this ver­sion of clas­sic Eggs Bene­dict. This brunch recipe feeds a crowd and is ready in less than 30 min­utes, mak­ing it the per­fect choice when you want to whip up a quick en­tree for fam­ily or friends.
