Easter Brunch Recipes
“Brunch: One meal to rule them all!”
Ah, when it comes to the weekend, brunch might be your meal of choice. And when it comes to Easter Sunday – brunch is a fabulous way to go. After all, brunch encompasses the best of breakfast and the best of lunch – often with a bit of bubbly!
If you’re planning an Easter brunch this year, you’ll want a mix of sweet and savory foods to go along with your Mimosas and Bloody Marys – and with these recipes, you’ll definitely have both.
- French Toast Bake: French toast is a great brunch food, but it can be difficult to make to order – so why not make it as a casserole? This recipe uses sourdough bread (although there are several other bread choices suggested if sourdough is not your favorite) and has a fantastic brown sugar and cinnamon topping.
- Bacon Potato Hash: Corned beef hash is on lots of diner menus, but not everyone likes corned beef. But guess what people do like? BACON! And that’s why they’ll love this Bacon Potato Hash!
- Spinach Frittata: A frittata is an egg-based Italian dish that is similar to an omelette or crustless quiche. This Spinach Frittata has shallots, spinach, and two types of cheese – although it can easily be changed up to contain other vegetables, cheeses, or meats.
- Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake: A coffee cake is a great addition to Easter brunch as your family can snack on it while the final meal preparations are finishing up. This Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake has fresh blueberries, a crunchy crumb topping, and a light glaze – and everyone will enjoy a slice.
- Easy Eggs Benedict: Eggs Benedict has a reputation for being complicated and time-consuming to make, but this Easy Eggs Benedict is neither of those things. With a few shortcuts and an easy to make Hollandaise sauce, you’ll be making Eggs Benedict more often after trying this recipe.
- Ham and Cheese Pinwheels: Ham is often served on Easter Sunday, but it can make a lot – perhaps more than you need. But if you want to serve ham in some fashion at your brunch, then make these Ham and Cheese Pinwheels. With only five ingredients, you’ll love how simple they are to make, and they’d be great on a buffet or as an appetizer.
- Make-Ahead Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits: Dishes you can make ahead are ideal as they’ll take a little of the stress off of you on Easter. These Make-Ahead Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits can be made Saturday night and pulled out of the refrigerator right before you want to eat.
- Savory Breakfast Monkey Bread: This is another great “semi-homemade” dish that has you using refrigerated biscuits. You can easily play with the flavors depending on what you like, and the kids will love pulling off pieces to eat!
- Strawberry Biscuits: Biscuits are good, but Strawberry Biscuits might just be a bit better! Made with fresh strawberries, they’re perfect with a pat of butter or used for strawberry shortcake.
- Parmesan Oven Baked Tomatoes: Looking for an easy vegetable to serve? Then make these! They only take 15 minutes to make from start to finish!
- Classic Deviled Eggs: Easter should always include a plate of deviled eggs. Here’s a Classic Deviled Eggs recipe that you’ll love – and Spend With Pennies shares several variations if you’re looking to change it up.
- Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad: Fruit salad is always a good idea, and this Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad is not only pleasing to the eyes but pleasing to the palate.
