Brunch is an underrated meal that allows us to consume our favorite breakfast and lunch dishes while incorporating some sweet treats at the table altogether.
Personally, eating brunch during Easter is one of my favorite parts of the celebration as it's the time that everyone gathers around the table while good memories and fun conversation are forged.
Before everybody gets busy at the afternoon egg hunt, make sure that they’re full enough for the activity. If you prefer Easter brunch instead of dinner, then this compilation is for you!
From appetizing appetizers right down to thirst-quenching cocktails, here's everything you need for your upcoming Easter brunch feast!
These deviled strawberries are sure to be the first thing to disappear when served at your Easter brunch table.
It features deviled strawberries stuffed with a tempting sweet cream cheese filling and then finished with crushed graham crackers. Plus, this appetizer is easy to put together.
Aside from the Easter holiday, this recipe is also perfect for serving at BBQ, potlucks, or even birthday parties.
And if you happen to have guests who avoid carbs, then the best thing to do is use a low carb sweetener in place of sugar and omit the graham crackers.
Just make sure to create the cream cheese mixture the day before to reduce preparation time.
Savory breakfast dishes
When it comes to savory breakfast dishes, this sausage potato casserole and spinach ricotta quiche are my go-to recipes.
The former features breakfast sausage, potato, eggs, milk, cheddar cheese, herbs, and spices. It's also versatile because you can tweak the ingredients to suit your taste buds. Feel free to add crispy bacon, diced bell pepper, and shredded mozzarella cheese for a creamier flavor.
Meanwhile, the latter is made with spinach, ricotta cheese, eggs, and basil. The possibilities of this recipe are also endless. You can add a few cooked links of Italian chicken sausage, roasted, peppers, or artichokes.
If you want it to make it low carb, just omit the pie crust, including more eggs and filling.
Sweet breakfast dishes
Serve these lemon ricotta pancakes, and you'll put everyone in a good mood throughout the Easter celebration.
Easy to whip up, these pancakes are filled with lemon juice, zest, and ricotta cheese, resulting in a mouth-watering and fluffy result. It features a delicate and balanced lemon flavor that might leave everyone craving for more.
For an extraordinary eating experience, serve them with extra ricotta, lemon zest, powdered sugar, and blueberries. Yum!
If you love everything about Nutella, then this baked French toast casserole is also an excellent addition to your Easter feast!
The recipe calls for five simple ingredients such as white bread, eggs, Nutella, vanilla extract, and whole milk. The result? It's filled with chocolate-y goodness!
The recipe is scrumptious on its own, but pairing it with sliced strawberries and maple syrup makes it more enjoyable to consume.
Side dishes are the centerpiece of the Easter table. If you're looking for a good dish for your upcoming feast, then consider preparing these avocado deviled eggs!
These eggs are accompanied by lemon juice, avocado mayo, red pepper flakes, spices, and fresh parsley for a nice touch.
If you're feeding a large crowd, cooking them the night before will save time. Just put the eggs in the fridge right away.
Another side dish I want you to try is these fried tomatoes. The tomatoes are coated with breadcrumbs before being fried in a skillet. Afterwards, the cooked tomatoes are topped with simple yet flavorful corn salsa.
The best part? Reheating them is possible!
And who can ever forget the Easter cocktails? As a host, you're in charge of filling and maintaining your guests' glasses (sorry kids!).
If you haven't decided what to serve on your big day, then try this morning mule cocktail.
The recipe has a neat combination of mimosa and Moscow mule. The result is so refreshing! For garnish, you can opt for lime wedges and orange slices.
When it comes to simplicity, this Easter chocolate bunny cocktail is top-rated as the recipe only calls for two simple ingredients. Garnish your cocktail with mint leaves and edible flowers to complete the presentation.
