This year I am the lucky family member that is hosting Easter brunch. I am a planner, which means I’ve started making my menu already. For my Easter brunch menu I wanted a wide range of brunch recipes from bite size appetizers, to breakfast casseroles, to an Easter ham. I eat with my eyes like most people. If it looks pretty, it must be good, right? So, I always try to pick eye-catching recipes that are either colorful or unique, hopefully both!
What’s more Easter than carrot cake? Right? These Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls mean you can have dessert for breakfast and you don’t even have to feel bad about it ;).
This Carrot Orzo is a risotto made with orzo pasta and carrots. It has a light, bright flavor, and it can be made the day before and heated up for brunch with a little warm broth. It’s something new and delicious for Easter brunch.
This simple Ham and Cheese English Muffin Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole is perfect for brunch all year long but it’s especially good for Easter brunch since it uses ham. Make everything the night before and pop this in the oven before guests arrive. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
What’s more traditional for breakfast than donuts? These Baked Carrot Cake Donuts are super easy to make and so cute. There is even a quick tutorial on how to make those adorable mini carrots!
I couldn’t pass up making these Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts. I have been dying to use my mini donut pan that I got from Kat for Christmas.
I love bite size food for brunch. This Shrimp and Dill Appetizer is quick and easy to make and the dill sauce has a nice light flavor that is perfect for spring.
Asparagus Casserole is a southern classic with a rich, creamy cheese sauce and layers of asparagus, bacon, and eggs. Sprinkle some cracker crumbs on top and you have yourself the ultimate Easter brunch casserole.
This Raspberry Rose Baked French Toast is assembled the night before and baked the next morning. Another time saver, you’re welcome! You will need this key ingredient.
What’s better than chocolate and carbs? You can also prepare these Chocolate Chunk Hot Cross Buns the night before. I just need my espresso!
Homemade Crepes with Nutella Hazelnut Spread are easy to make, you can even make them ahead of time. No one is going to be able to resist those thin crepes stuffed with Nutella, and fresh fruit! You can make them using a non-stick pan but having a crepe pan is always nice.
This Omelette Rollup or Roulade was inspired from a frittata.
I kinda have a food crush on these Gruyere and Ham Potato Stacks. You will definitely need this to make these perfect little stacks.
This Cheesy Tater Tot Breakfast Bake has all my faves, sausage, bacon, cheese, eggs, and potatoes! This is also made the night before.
Lighten up Easter brunch with this bright, flavorful Carrot Salad. It is just a few simple ingredients and everything can be prepped the day before!
I made these Bacon Sriracha Avocado Deviled Eggs last Easter and they were a hit!
Gotta have Baked Ham! Make sure you have a sturdy roaster.
This Spinach Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Cheesy Squares is like spinach and artichoke dip but jazzed up.
If you’re looking for a complete breakfast in one adorable bite these Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Tots are the answer. They have everything awesome about breakfast nestled into a crisp tater tot cup.
Have you ever seen a cooler deviled egg? These Bacon Blue Deviled Eggs with Roasted Garlic and Asparagus are certain to stand out. To get the perfect consistency use this.
I wanted a muffin that I could make the day before that weren’t boring. Boom, found these Dirty Chai Muffins. Perfect with a cup of tea!
You can never have too many deviled eggs on Easter! These Shrimp Cocktail Deviled Eggs take two classic dishes and turn them into one incredible bite!
These English Muffin Bacon, Eggs and Cheese Cups are a fun alternative to a breakfast sandwiches.
These Smoked Salmon Egg Stuffed Avocados are a healthy low carb option.
Thought these Croissants with Apricot Jam were so pretty. I had to add them to the menu too. Am I going overboard on the menu?
I just had to have something pink! It is Easter after all. How breathtaking is this Rhubarb Rose Pistachios Pie?
This simple English Peas and Potato Salad scream spring. New red potatoes and bright green English peas are tossed together with a Dijon dressing and a generous helping of bacon (because bacon makes everything better!) and topped with some fresh dill. It is a beautiful side for an Easter brunch.
This Easy Artichoke, Spinach and Herb Frittata is a great meatless option. Time to break out my frittata pan.
Just because you’re having brunch doesn’t mean you should skip dessert! This is the BEST Coconut Cake You’ll Ever Make and it is a classic Easter dessert.
Speaking of classic dessert this Hummingbird Cake is a southern tradition. It is packed full of pineapple, bananas, and pecans for a decadently sweet cake that is sure to impress your guests!
