Anyone else really missing brunch right now? With three kids between us, not going out for dinner we can handle – that kind of outing had become a distant memory way before lockdown. But brunch…oh what we’d give for fresh juice, coffee that actually tastes good and pancakes/shakshuka/avo toast devoured over chats with our nearest and dearest this weekend.
Well, HelloFresh has answered our prayers (sadly minus the friends and family part) with the news that it is putting brunch back on the menu for a limited time only.
From mouth-watering savoury sensations like chorizo shakshuka with feta and flatbreads and Mexican style chorizo hash with refried beans, avocado, soured cream and fried eggs to sweet treats like fig pancakes with honey-roasted figs, there’s an option to tickle every tastebud and inject a little past-life fun into your lockdown weekends. Like all HelloFresh boxes, the ingredients arrive pre-portioned, meaning zero waste and minimal faff. Sadly, you’ll have to provide your own bottomless booze.
From this Saturday (6th Feb) until 5th March, you can order one brunch recipe per week, with prices costing £8.99 for one or £12.99 for two. With HelloFresh being the first recipe box brand to create a brunch box, we reckon they’ll sell out fast, so, whether it’s a kinda-like-the-old-times catch up with your gang, an indulgent start to Valentine’s Day or just a little something to make the weekend a bit more exciting, you’d better get your order in quick. We’re already dreaming of those pancakes washed down with a mimosa or two.
The full HelloFresh brunch menu includes:
Chorizo shakshuka with feta and flatbreads
Avocado and bacon on toast with a peanut and maple syrup buttermilk pancake
Mexican-style chorizo hash with refried beans, avocado, sour cream and fried egg
Eggs Florentine with mango granola parfait
Fig pancakes with honey-roasted fig
