Easter brunch is the perfect excuse to celebrate your favorite spring foods. Eggs, asparagus, strawberries, peas and ham are all invited to the ultimate spring feast! For a mix-and-match Easter brunch that’s light, easy and luscious, just choose a dish from each category. Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just a few, here are some dishes that will be perfect for this Sunday.
An Egg Dish
Frittata with Asparagus, Tomato and Fontina (pictured above): It doesn’t get more spring-like than this.
Soft-Boiled Eggs with Asparagus Soldiers: A simple choice for a small gathering featuring two must-haves from the Easter menu.
Spinach and Pancetta Strata: Stratas are an easy choice because they combine the egg and bread category. All you need is a salad and fruit-centric dessert to round out the meal.
Morning Glory Muffins (pictured above): If carrots are an ingredient you want to see on your Easter menu, give these light muffins a go.
Savoury French Toast: Who says French toast needs to be sweet? This easy dish is the perfect side to your Easter vegetable dish.
Buckwheat Crepes with Ham, Gruyere and Caramelized Onions: These are a special breakfast staple that need only a simple egg dish as a partner — try poached or scrambled eggs on the side.
Buttermilk Scones: Though this scone recipe is less rich than most, it promises a “melting, tender crumb.”
Shaved Asparagus Salad: This salad gets a lot of flavor and texture from hazelnuts, raw shaved asparagus, chives and orange.
Pea, Feta & Mint Salad: These three ingredients are a phenomenal combination of flavors.
Spring Green Salad with Creamy Lemon Vinaigrette: This bright, creamy dressing is the perfect topping for spring lettuce.
A Festive Drink
Hibiscus Tea Punch (pictured above): A brilliantly hued punch that gets a blast of blood-pressure-lowering antioxidants from hibiscus, as well as vitamin C from the grapefruit juice.
Fresh Strawberry Bellini: Fresh strawberries make this pretty, festive and healthier than a juice-based bellini.
A Fruity Dessert
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp: This classic spring dessert will hits two favorite ingredients.
Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar: For a dessert that’s both elegant and virtuous, try this sweet/tart combo.
