Between egg hunts and baskets and getting your family dressed up and off to church, there’s a lot of excitement on Easter morning. It’s hard for everyone to sit still long enough to enjoy a proper at-the-table meal.
So here’s the solution: an informal Easter brunch where everything can be made ahead and served at room temperature (or gently reheated). Just set out the food buffet-style and let people come and go as they please. Consider including:
- Variety of fruit juice
- Whole-grain peasant bread with butter, jams and jellies
- Poached Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
- Mini Frittatas
- Spring Vegetable Salad
- Slow-Roasted Tomatoes
- Easter cupcakes
- Coffee and tea
If you have a huge crowd, you can easily double or triple the dishes in this Easter brunch menu. Because Easter very often involves lots of kids, most of the recipes below can be tweaked to make them more appealing to children. And be sure to check out these Easter recipes for even more kid-friendly (and fun!) Easter treats.
