Since I can remember brunch has always been my favorite meal. It has all of my favorite savory flavors from lunch but the comfort and ease of breakfast. In college, Brunch makes even more sense to me as it can please just about everyone, the timing is flexible and is the perfect pick me up before holing up in the library. However sometimes leaving the dorm can be such a struggle, but that’s no reason to stop brunching, with these recipes brunch will always be just moments (and steps) away from your bed!

You have to start with the millennial brunch classic, avocado toast. Not only is this a pretty healthy option compared to most of the food offered to college students, it is easy to keep the ingredients on hand in your dorm. Here is a dorm-friendly version but feel free to make it even fancier!
