It seems like every family has different customs to ring in the New Year. In my mostly-German family, pork and cabbage are musts on New Year’s Day for good luck in the coming year. This January 1, start a new tradition alongside loved ones with a New Year’s Day brunch full of breakfast favorites and modern twists on traditional recipes.
Flatbread With Arugula, Roasted Tomatoes and Eggs
This egg-topped flatbread offers a twist on traditional breakfast pizza.
Bacon and Potato Frittata
This traditional egg-and-potato dish can be served warm or at room temperature, so you can prepare it well before guests arrive.
Sparkling Grapefruit Fizz
A twist on the classic mimosa, this drink pairs sparkling wine with grapefruit juice, anise syrup and the herbal liqueur Campari.
Mix up a batch of steamy hot chocolate that’s ready when guests arrive.
Fresh blueberries and crisp sugar topping makes these simple scones special enough for New Year’s Day.
Champagne-Glazed Fruit Tarts
Use leftover champagne or sparkling wine from New Year’s Eve festivities to create a glaze for these mascarpone-filled fruit tarts.
