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.

If your family gathering happens to be between the morning and lunchtime, (it often incorporates breakfast and lunch), we will be sharing all of our favorite Easter brunch ideas.

What’s not to love?!

  • Something for everyone. From casseroles to pastries to pancakes and waffles, we are sharing the most popular ideas for your Easter Sunday.
  • Sweet and savory. We have a variety of recipes for every palate!
  • Nothing to it. Every recipe is simple and many can be made ahead of time for an easy morning/afternoon.

Tips for a Great Easter Brunch

  1. When to serve. Brunch usually starts between 9 and 10 am. Brunch is perfect for a self-serve buffet-style presentation.
  2. Prep ahead of time to make the morning go more smoothly. Get your grocery shopping done early. Decorate and set up tables. Prep any food items.
  3. The menuPlan the Easter brunch menu a week or two in advance. Include both sweet and savory items and hot and cold items. Incorporate make-ahead items into the menu.
    • 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. 
  4. Finishing touches. Include food labels and flowers to decorate. Prepare a matching palette (usually pastel colors and floral patterns). Use the palette from serving bowls to table centerpieces. Using a coordinating palette helps all the different elements of a brunch come together.

Seasonal Spring Produce

Brunch is a wonderful way to showcase the produce of a springtime garden. Easily find brunch recipes that showcase your favorite spring fruits and vegetables. 

  • Veggies. I love adding asparagus, broccoli florets, and mushrooms. Or include baby carrots, beets, young radishes, snap peas, cauliflower, artichokes, brussel sprouts, and green beans.
  • Fresh herbs. Parsley, chives, dill, basil, thyme, mint, garlic, green onions, and shallots are wonderful spring flavors to add to casseroles, quiches, and salads.
  • Fruits include coconut, apricots, mango, some cherries, pineapple, citrus, (oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit), and strawberries. Fresh Fruit Salads are easy to mix up or set out a platter full of different cut fruits. Use springtime fruit to add flavor and garnish your water bowls and juice pitchers.

50+ Easter Brunch Ideas

By: Lil’ Luna
From cinnamon rolls to breakfast casseroles to muffins, we have plenty of Easter brunch ideas for a tasty morning!
Servings: 8
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 1 pie crust unbaked
  • 1 cup chopped Ham
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs slightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt (with parsley flakes)
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Place the pie crust dough in a shallow sided 9" glass pie dish and crimp the edges. (I like to double fold the edges then crimp them.) Pre-bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow the crust to cool slightly before adding the ham and cheese.
  • In a medium mixing bowl add the milk, eggs, salt, and pepper. Mix and then pour in the crust over the ham and cheese.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
  • Allow to set for 5-10 minutes before serving warm.
