Hey, hey, hey, hey! This month marks the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’ cult film, The Breakfast Club, and we can’t help but feel nostalgic (and hungry!). This iconic coming-of-age dramedy centres on five misfit teens who discover they have a lot in common, despite their different social backgrounds. Re-watch the film at select Cineplex theatres across Canada on March 21 and 25, or gather your own group of misfit friends and commemorate this pop culture milestone with a viewing party while you scarf down this menu fit for Athletes, Basket Cases, Criminals, Brains, Princesses and everyone in between.
Starter – “The Athlete”
Our homemade toasted muesli doubles as a healthy, satisfying breakfast or snack! It’s lower in fat and sugar than granola, but higher in fibre and protein. Layer with low-fat yogurt and fresh, seasonal fruits for a pretty parfait.
Main – “The Basket Case”
Nicoise Muffuletta Sandwich
This all-in-one sandwich is a picnic basket favourite, but we also think it’s the ideal meal for entertaining at home. Prep this egg, tuna and veggie-layered beauty the day before, then cut into all its glory in front of your hungry guests.
Side – “The Criminal”
Who doesn’t love a bad boy? It’s natural to like things that aren’t great for you, but we say moderation is the key. Our guilty pleasure is bacon, and this one is also a little sweet. (Exactly how we like our bad boys.)
Dessert – “The Brain”
Mocha Fool with Crunchy Amaretti
Fuel your senses with a caffeinated breakfast dessert. Coffee, chocolate and crunchy amaretti cookies come together to create a creamy and delightful alternative to your morning cuppa. You’ll be ready to tackle anything that comes your way.
Snack – “The Princess”
Pink Princess Popcorn
This pretty in pink, sweet and salty popcorn is addictive and perfect for munching on when the movie starts.
