Rad Recipes: Brunch Bacon Baskets

I’m not sure why we’re so obsessed with brunch. Maybe we’re too lazy to get up at a suitable time for breakfast or maybe our generation has watched one too many episodes of Gossip Girl. Regardless, I am about this brunch life. I love that it’s socially acceptable to drink at 11:00 AM and breakfast food is my jam (HAH look at that pun, Mom). With that being said, we here at OM headquarters had a brunch of our own today and modeling said brunch is the ever-lovely Tyler Nicole Brockington:

To make making brunch affordable, have your friends make something and bring it over! No need to pay for everyone. Today, my brunch contribution was a bacon, egg & cheese basket. These are perfect for brunch because they’re filling and bite-sized. Isn’t it s’cute?!? Check the recipe below to make your next brunch radder than heaven itself.
