Like pretty much every food, breakfast tastes better when you cook it on the grill. Gather your friends, fire one up, and give eggs, French toast, lox, and bagels deeper flavor and subtle smokiness. And don't worry, we didn't forget the morning cocktails either. (No grill? Try these healthy brunch recipes instead.)

The juicy flavors of melon pair perfectly with fresh mint, but no need to stop there. You can grill almost any fruit, including pineapple, peaches, pears, and bananas. (Next up, try these tasty twists on grilled veggies.)

Grilled "Smoked" Salmon with Everything Bagel Quinoa Crunch

Smoked salmon on a bagel is a brunch classic. (It's also loaded with omega-3s.) This meal requires a little prep work (you have to let the salmon cure overnight) so send out the brunch memo in advance.

This is not your average French toast. Tangy yogurt and whole-grain sourdough bread combine deliciously with sweet plums and candied ginger (which is really good for you, FYI).
