In Issue:

You’ll have brunch whipped up in a jiffy with this egg and salmon brunch combo. Most of us show up hungry for brunch, however, so put out a fruit platter, some yogurt and granola, or a spread of smoked salmon and bagels for your guests to nibble on when they arrive.

And be sure to pace the meal: People should feel like they could go for a hike after leaving the table.
