Breads and Spreads: Punch Up Your Brunch Menu

There’s nothing better than baking up some delicious breads and muffins to share with friends and family over steaming cups of coffee or hot chocolate. If you’re looking for a way to “punch up” your brunch menu, making simple flavored spreads is a great way to wow your guests. All of these spreads start with Fresh Buttery Taste® Spread, and go easy on fat and cholesterol without compromising flavor. Simply start with 1/2 cup of Fresh Buttery Taste® Spread and mix in the listed ingredients to achieve a delicious flavored spread.

Flavored Spread Start with 1/2 cup of Fresh Buttery Taste® Spread and stir in: Serve with:
Strawberry 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
Favorite Banana Bread
Orange Cinnamon 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Glazed Pear Bread
Almond Peach 2 tablespoons peach preserves
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Almond Peach Yogurt Muffins
Parsley-Herb 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Cheddar Scones
Honey Pecan 1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons chopped pecans
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
french toast
Pecan French Toast
Lemon Mint 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon sugar
Sparkling Blueberry Muffins

For a creative presentation, try piping these spreads through a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe onto waxed paper, and refrigerate until firm and ready to serve.


Quick, easy, and extremely impressive- flavored spreads are a winner. Pair these spreads and their complementing bread with your favorite egg casserole, pitchers of juices and a spring-themed table. A colorful bunch of flowers and bright napkins go a long way in setting the mood. With this set up, everyone will be asking you when you’ll be hosting the next brunch!
