A new twist on brunch

The weekend is a time to lounge but one single scrumptious syllable can summarize it all: brunch.

Canadians from coast to coast don’t hesitate to queue at their favourite brunch spot to enjoy bottomless mimosas and heaps of hollandaise. Accounting for 186,700,000 restaurant occasions, the late morning meal has seen a meteoric rise with Canadians spending up more than $230 million year over year.

In a quest for the perfect brunch, Tabasco® Canada commissioned its first Brunch Report, a national survey that revealed some good news for wallets everywhere: Canadians are ready to shake things up with almost half of respondents (49%) preferring to entertain at home. Even though homemade fares might not be as Instagram-worthy than the latest hot spot, these weekend breakfast and brunch will be stress-free, less costly than other meals and the perfect occasions to reconnect and have quality bonding time.

But what are Canadians craving for, you might ask? Well, they want it all!

After analyzing the results of the 2020 Brunch Report, the iconic hot sauce brand proposes to overhaul Canadians’ hosting habits by introducing breakfast boards. Tailored to please everyone at the kitchen table, these large platters are a fun, fuss-free way for hosts to impress their guests while offering something for everyone’s unique taste.

The traditionalist

While Canadians are true carnivores with 26% asking for sausages, bacon and ham, 58% of Canadians typically choose traditional breakfast items for brunch (such as eggs, bacon and baked beans). And don’t forget to incorporate grilled bread! 15% admitted to preferring their breakfast on a bun!

The Sweet tooth

Did you know that for 15% of the population, it’s all about carbs? Another 28% of Canadians admit to liking their sweets in the morning and never hesitate to order pancakes or waffles above any other brunch option.

Spike your toppings

by adding your favourite Tabasco® sauce to either your maple syrup or honey butter. Our sauces are the perfect match to pancakes and waffles!

The gourmet Fare

While 26% of respondents want something a little fancier for brunch like eggs Benedict or smoked salmon, only 11% prefer meat-free options. We think that even the biggest carnivores wouldn’t resist these avo or smoked salmon roses.

In a country as large and as rich as Canada, it only makes sense to eat local. With more than peameal bacon, breakfast can definitely include a wide selection of fare from coast to coast. From meats to fruits, cheeses to grains, each province has quality ingredients and unique recipes that can elevate your brunch boards.
