Our Halls Lake cottages will be your home away from home, equipped with all the amenities you need to have a wonderful spring getaway in the beautiful Haliburton Highlands of Ontario. Our cottage homes come packed with satellite televisions, fireplaces (we provide the wood), A/C, kitchens, grills, and so much more. You and yours will be more than satisfied and able to prepare some delicious homecooked meals, all from the comforts of your waterfront abode. Check out our recommendations for five springy brunch recipes to cook in your Halls Lake cottage—

1) Baked Eggs in Tomato-Pimento Olive Sauce

You may experience some small spring showers, and they can sometimes bring in a bit of a chill, Don’t despair! This dish from the Food Network is great for those rainy mornings when you just want something nice and warm. Make sure you bring your cast iron skillet from home and some hearty bread from a neighboring bakery. 

2) Pastel Butter Cookies

Try making these sugary cookies that use freeze-dried fruit for a dash of natural coloring. They have the crumbly texture of shortbread cookies, with the added powdery-ness of confectioner’s sugar. The cookies can last up to one week when stored in an airtight container at room temperature—great for more extended stays at our resort. 

3) Savory Parmesan French Toast

As you enter the new year this spring, embrace new recipes and flavors, such as this savory french toast recipe. Brunch is a mixture of breakfast and lunch dishes, so mixing up typically lovely meals makes sense. This savory parmesan french toast can make delightful grilled cheese sandwiches, which you should pair with some tomato soup! 

4) Hearty Spinach Salad with Hot Bacon Dressing

Salad for brunch at your Halls Lake cottage? Yes! Keep it light, yet still brunch-y, with this delicious spinach salad from Taste of Home. You can add your favorite salad toppings, from croutons, seeds, fruits, and more. The warm dressing is a very nice contrast to the traditional cold sauce. 

5) Ultimate Spring Brunch Board

This spring-themed smörgåsbord is a culmination of the best brunch items and is perfect for serving a larger group of people. Charcuterie boards were all the rage these past few months, so this recipe just takes that concept to the next level! You have a lot of room to personalize the recipe to meet your brunch needs.
