Lunch Don't tell, but we here at The Kitchn love a good holiday brunch almost as much as we love the glitzy cocktail parties this time of year. Maybe more. I mean, when else do you get to pile your plate with not only a scoop of cheesy ham casserole and sliver of quiche but also a slice of buttery holiday cake and a mini sticky bun or two? It's the best. In the event that you find yourself invited to or hosting just such a brunch in the coming weeks, we won't leave you stranded.
