Cold Brunch & Breakfast Appetizers
Let’s take a look at my favorite cold breakfast appetizers you can make for a breakfast party.
These cold brunch appetizers below are perfect for a buffet-style breakfast for a crowd at work, home, school, a breakfast party. a bridal shower, etc – or whenever you need to plan what bite-size cold brunch food to make.
Brunch Party Fruit Dip
Such a simple cold breakfast appetizer idea and the dip only has 4 ingredients:
- Softened Cream Cheese
- Canned Crushed Pineapple
- 1 Cup Cool Whip
- 1 Package Vanilla Instant Pudding
Then, just serve this breakfast dip with any types of fruit for dipping you want.
Yes! You can use frozen fruit! In fact, frozen fruit can be easier to work with than fresh fruit (and it travels well too) – blueberries are my favorite!
Strawberry Shortcake Fingers
I wanted all the breakfast appetizer recipes to be totally NO COOK, but this one is totally worth the share!
The only thing you’re ‘cooking’ is a can of refrigerator biscuits – and you can bake them ahead of time.
Then, when you’re ready to put these finger food ka-bobs together, just cut up your cooked biscuits and layer the ka-bobs – and serve them COLD.
Creative Breakfast Dip For a Crowd
Super simple 3-ingredient party dip that you can serve for ANY get-together… not just breakfast!
The only 3 ingredients in this cold breakfast appetizer dip are:
- Softened Cream Cheese
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- Everything Bagel Seasoning
Serve it cold with mini bagels or mini bagel chips.
Breakfast Potluck Pizza
Yep, it’s pizza made with watermelon as the “crust”!
Breakfast Snack Salsa Dip
Apples, strawberries, canned peaches and whatever other fruit want want – all chopped up into a delicious fruit salsa breakfast appetizer.
I love serving this with cinnamon sugar graham crackers!
Smoked Salmon Dip With Bagel Chips
This breakfast appetizer is not one I would call “easy”, but it sure is GOOD!
I tend to dread making it, but it’s a definite crowd-pleaser and always makes me happy I took the effort to make it.
Work Potluck Strawberry Bruschetta
My goodness, this breakfast appetizer makes me hungry every, single time I look at the picture.
And it’s such a simple appetizer idea, too!
Sure, you can make it more complicated and elegant if you want, but basically, its French bread slices with strawberries and a sauce on top.
And it’s perfect served COLD (and goes GREAT with those breakfast Mimosas too!)
