What are your go-to brunch recipes that you can make ahead of time?

From Molly C. - Washington, DC

For brunch, I like to make a Potato Basil Frittata ( the recipe is in Barefoot Contessa Family Style), platters of smoked salmon, bagels, cream cheese, and in the summer, a fresh tomato salad. For dessert, I serve a big platter of fresh fruit. The frittata goes into the oven about an hour before you serve it, so everything is ready before he guests arrive.
