Fresh Solutions Network's Side Delights® Preps for Brunch Trends With Convenient Potato Products
- by Jessica Donnel
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - When I think brunch, I think a big ol’ pile of potatoes with all the fixings, and it looks like I’m not alone. Fresh Solutions Network’s Side Delights® brand has checked the studies, with data showing that the produce item is consistently topping the list as one of the most popular breakfast and brunch components.
“Potatoes continue to be a consumer favorite, and brunch is a natural fit,” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO, noting that the growing trend is moving beyond the confines of a weekend morning. “Side Delights offer fresh, wholesome potatoes of the highest quality in a full-range of potato types and bag sizes so consumers can make restaurant quality brunch at home—any day of the week, any time of day.”
According to a study by Mintel, brunch is a top food trend once again for 2018 in both restaurants and home cooked meals alike. The four top breakfast components on the list were eggs, bacon, bread, and, of course, potatoes. One way to achieve the potatoey glory consumers are craving? The National Restaurant Association’s “What’s Hot Culinary Focus 2018” list and a list of Leading Trends in Breakfast Brunch Items touted Breakfast Hash as one of the top five leading trends in breakfast/brunch.
A Side Delights press release offered its products as an ideal solution for breakfast hash, or any other brunch menu. Consumers can check out both traditional and innovative recipes, such as the trendy tri-color potato hash with kale and pancetta, or the tried and true breakfast hash with bacon and poached eggs.
Another tantalizing brunch option is pizza, an additional Mintel study showed, with 61 percent of consumers citing Breakfast Pizza as a brunch item. Brunch restaurants across the country are including potatoes on their breakfast pizza, such as Maximiliano in Los Angeles, which offers theirs with fingerling potatoes, bacon confit, eggs, fennel sausage, pomodoro, and mozzarella. What is the Side Delights answer? Consumers can get creative with Grilled Breakfast Pizza with Torn Potato Croutons, Arugula, Tomato, and Egg.
