There’s something for everyone at brunch with these crispy golden potato galettes and customized toppings. When the weekend arrives, there is nothing I look forward to more than Sunday brunch. Sleeping in followed by a spread of delicious food all while surrounded by my favorite people has to be the sweetest part of the weekend.
Prepping for a brunch can oftentimes be high maintenance though. Traditional foods like omlets, waffles, and pancakes require me to stay put in the kitchen preparing the food while my guests get to mingle.
My take on brunch is to keep things simple, stress-free and fun. I prefer to make one or two homemade dishes surrounded by store-bought sides like fruit, breads, and pastries. A manageable menu ensures that I get to enjoy the together time with family and friends.
One of our favorite brunch must-haves is Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns. These potatoes save me time and a whole lot of energy in the kitchen on a weekend morning! The shredding is done for me, they are so easy to prepare, and I can keep them on hand in the fridge, making them incredibly convenient for any last minute recipes.These always fresh, never frozen potatoes go from farm, to fridge, to fork and are simply delicious as is or combined with other ingredients. Our favorite way to devour them is by forming them into a large pancake-like galette and topping them with sweet or savory ingredients.
After mixing with egg and flour, these potatoes are molded into a non-stick pan and then fried on both sides until perfectly browned.The result? A crispy on the outside, creamy-soft on the inside potato galette! Once sliced, each piece is a perfect serving for a casual or impressive brunch get-together.They provide the perfect base for any variety of sweet and savory toppings that can be prepared ahead of time. For those with a sweet tooth and my girls’ first choice, I top one galette with a dollop of Greek Yogurt and honey, a sprinkle of cranberries, and a dash of cinnamon.
My savory foodies get a colorful galette that features lemon soaked apples, olive oil, chives, and bacon. The Boy loves this one, you know, because of the bacon.
And for those that are a little more daring, like The Better Half, my last galette is topped with spicy curry mayo, radishes, and fresh cilantro. This slice is anything but ordinary.
Some scrambled eggs and fresh fruit complement the potato galettes perfectly, promising not to leave one single tastebud bored or belly empty.We love the slice and grab option here and the different flavors are conversation-worthy while we gather around the table.
The best part about this brunch, besides my husband doing the dishes, is that using Simply Potatoes for our galettes means I get to enjoy the food at the same time as my family. These potato galettes are simply made and simply satisfying.

- Serve immediately or transfer to a cookie sheet to keep warm in the oven while you make the other galettes.
