Easter Brunch Recipes

Easy make-ahead recipes for a delicious Easter brunch

Easter Brunch Recipe Ideas

Easter has got to be the number one brunch holiday of the year. Whether or not you're religious, it's a great excuse to get together with friends and family and enjoy a springtime meal together. Brunch is one of my favorite meals to entertain for because you can still host a party, clean up, take a nap, and have the rest of the night to yourself. The key to an easy Easter brunch is to prepare as much as possible in advance (many of these recipes can be made the night before) and serve things family style. Rather than making a bunch of scrambled eggs or pancakes to order, whip up a crowd-pleasing vegetable frittata or bake a big batch of french toast in the oven. These simple recipes will wow your guests ... and they'll have no idea how easy they were to make!

Easter Brunch Recipes:
  • Mini Spinach & Onion Frittatas - Bite-size frittatas made in muffin pans for easy portioning. This recipe is made with sautéed spinach and onions, but feel free to use whatever flavor combination you like.
  • Baked Cinnamon Walnut French Toast - This cross between french toast and bread pudding feeds a crowd and is baked in the oven so that you can enjoy time with your guests instead of being glued to the stove. 
  • Potato Pancake with Smoked Salmon & Greens - A giant hash brown cake makes an impressive presentation and can easily be cut into wedges to serve guests.
  • Lemon Yogurt Cake - This cake works as well for dessert as it does for breakfast. Serve with farmers' market berries to really take it to the next level.
