Easter is early this year, so we want to help you get ahead with a simple, affordable and tasty brunch menu that will leave your guests (even if they’re just your kids) thinking you worked way harder than you actually did.
We’ve lined up three courses: sweet, savory and drinkable. So, whether you’re adding to a table full of family-favored staples or creating a simple spread for a few people- these recipes are sure to please.
Take a look and be sure to share your family favorites (and photos) on our Facebook page!
Drinkable: Peach Almond Smoothie
While most people don’t think about beverages when they’re drafting a brunch menu, we think mini-smoothies are the perfect starter course. They also happen to look adorable served up in festive glasses. This Peach Almond Smoothie is light, flavorful, delicious and pairs exceptionally well with both sweet and savory brunch items.
Savory: Bacon, Egg and Cheese Brunch Ring
Next up is something savory to fill up on. This bacon, egg and cheese brunch ring is beyond easy to make and SO. INCREDIBLY. YUMMY. Not to mention, it makes for a beautiful addition to your Easter table décor. Seriously, just try it- you won’t be disappointed.
Sweet: Strawberry Shortcake Trifles
No brunch would be complete without a sweet little something and this Strawberry Shortcake Trifle fits the bill. Prepare this visually delightful recipe single-serve, in stemless wine glasses, or layer it in a traditional trifle dish for easy sharing. The recipe calls for Cool Whip, but we prefer the real deal using Oakhurst Heavy Cream. (For an easy, real-deal recipe, we look to Martha.)
