MOST POPULAR EASTER BRUNCH IDEAS
Easter is such a fun holiday! With the Easter egg hunts, family gatherings, church and festivities, it’s a holiday that so many love. If your family is like ours, we center these family holidays around food.
In case your family gathering happens to be between the morning and lunch time, we will be sharing all of our favorite Easter brunch recipes that everyone loves.
Tips for a Great Easter Brunch
What is a good time to serve brunch? Brunch usually starts between 9 and 10 am. Once you get to 11am you can skip the “br” and just serve lunch. Also, brunch is perfect for a self serve buffet style presentation.
Prep ahead of time: Unlike hosting a dinner, brunch means that you don’t have all day to prepare. Getting things done ahead of time will make the morning go more smoothly.
- Get your grocery shopping done early. Not only will you beat the crowds, but you don’t risk the store being out of a needed item.
- Clean the house
- Decorate and set up tables
- Prep any food items
- Plan the Easter brunch menu a week or two in advance. This will help you when you’re out shopping as well as if people ask to bring a dish. You’ll know exactly what items you want to serve and how they can help.
- Include both sweet and savory items to the menu as well as both hot and cold items.
- Incorporate make ahead items to the menu. See individual posts for more info.
- Don’t hesitate to have guests bring a dish, especially a warm dish. Spreading out the making of hot dishes means you can offer more hot dishes with less work on your part.
Seasonal Spring Produce
Brunch is a wonderful way to showcase the product of a spring time garden. You can easily find brunch recipes that showcase your favorite spring fruits and vegetables.
The best way to really see what is in season is to head down to my local Farmer’s market. Their produce is the most fresh and best priced and I often come across items I wouldn’t have guessed were grown in my area.
Spring Vegetables + Fruits
- Many savory brunch dishes are only made better with the addition of some fresh spring vegetables. I love adding asparagus, broccoli florets, mushrooms
- Parsley, chives, dill, basil, thyme, mint, garlic, green onions, and shallots are wonderful spring flavors to add to casseroles, quiche and salads.
- Some other spring vegetables that you can include on you menu include: baby carrots, beets, young radishes, snap peas, cauliflower, artichokes, brussel sprouts, green beans
- Fresh fruit salads are easy to mix up or you can set out a platter full of different cut fruits.
- Favorite spring fruits include coconut, apricots, mango, some cherries, pineapple, citrus, (oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit) strawberries.
- Use spring time fruit to add flavor and garnish your water bowls and juice pitchers.
