Your holiday guests will never guess the secret to this gorgeous, delicious brunch: Each dish uses 8 items or less!

In this month of chattering cocktail parties and bustling family gatherings, a leisurely but luxurious brunch might be just the thing you need to really savor the holidays. Because it's not elaborate (each dish uses eight or fewer easy-to-find ingredients), it's a nearly effortless way to feed your clan—or those friends you've been meaning to invite over for a festive meal.

This menu is the perfect solution for a holiday morning, too. Once all the presents are unwrapped, settle down to creamy baked eggs, cinnamon-scented oatmeal, agave-laced sweet potatoes, and fresh fruit salad, and let that carefree mood set the pace for the rest of your special day.
