Easy Easter Brunch Ideas for the Whole Family

Here are some simple ideas for an easy Easter brunch, sure to satisfy the family.

Start off with these Pink Pickled Eggs. They’re fitting with the pastel coloured Easter egg theme, and can be made well ahead of time, allowing you more time for family on Easter morning.

Another dish that can be prepared in advance are crêpes. Cook crêpes ahead of time, then stack and cover in foil or plastic wrap and keep in the fridge. Crêpes can be refrigerated like this for up to three days. Before your meal, take the crêpes out of the fridge and let them stand at room temperature for an hour before serving. Try these Smoked Salmon and Dill Crêpes or start with a Basic Crêpe recipe and invent your own!

Eggs Benedict is always a popular brunch dish. Try the classic Eggs Benedict recipe (here are tips for poaching eggs like a pro, including how to poach eggs for group), or for something different, try these Cajun Eggs Benedict.

For the kids, serve these Mini Ham and Cheddar Frittatas—just the right size for tiny fingers. Kids of all ages will love this Chocolate Bunny Egg Bread, or try this delicious French Toast with Cheese

Really make your brunch a special occasion with some simple Easter decorations in the dining room. Wrapped chocolate or decorated Easter eggs make inexpensive and beautiful centrepieces.

And for dessert, chocolate eggs and bunnies, of course! Organize an indoor post-brunch Easter egg hunt for the kids, and maybe hide a few treats higher up for the adults to get in on the fun too.
