Thinking of Easter, you probably think about Easter dinner. Savory ham and dressing―yum! But you don’t have to wait until dinner to enjoy Easter food. Kick Easter off with some brunch!

Get ready to hop into the kitchen! Let’s make some Easter brunch delights.

How to Prepare Brunch
Preparing brunch can be fun if you plan ahead. First, decide on your menu. Keep it simple to not overwhelm yourself. Next, make a list of ingredients. Then it’s time to shop.

That’s not all you can prep ahead of time. You can also chop your vegetables, set the table, and prep batters. This will help you save time come Easter morning.

Cooking not your forte? Hire a private chef to help. They can handle everything―menu prep, shopping, and cooking. Just tell them what you want and watch the magic unfold.

6 Creative Easter-Inspired Brunch Ideas
Brunch options can be overwhelming! Especially with all the options. But relax―here are some creative Easter-inspired ideas to narrow it down.

Carrot Cake Waffles
Who doesn’t like waffles? But waffles can be served anytime. That’s why you need to give them a touch of Easter magic. How? By infusing them with carrot flavoring! Carrot cake waffles―mm!

Preheat your waffle iron. Refer to the instruction manual for desired heat.

Then, it’s time to mix your concoction! Combine your dry ingredients:
-1 ½ cups flour
-2 tsp. baking powder
-½ tsp. baking soda
-½ tsp. Cinnamon
-A pinch of salt

Grab a second bowl! Whisk together your wet ingredients until combined:
-¼ cup brown sugar
-¼ cup vegetable oil
-2 eggs
-1 tsp. vanilla extract
-1 cup buttermilk

Combine your wet and dry ingredients. Stir. Fold in carrots and nuts for an added crunch!

Pour batter into the waffle iron. Cook till golden brown. Serve warm with cream cheese frosting.

Bunny-Shaped Pancakes
Not in the mood for waffles? That’s okay! You can make bunny-shaped pancakes instead!

Get started with your favorite pancake batter! Throw in some grated carrots. Or add some cinnamon.

Grab your non-stick pan. Heat to medium. Pour small circles of pancake batter. This will form the bunny’s head and body. Make one pancake smaller to accommodate the head. For the back paws, make them even smaller and oval-shaped.

Cook the pancakes until golden brown. Arrange on a plate to form the bunny’s body. Add banana slices for ears and blueberries for toe beans.

Ready for the finishing touch? Add cream cheese frosting! Place it on the bunny’s stomach. This will act as the bunny’s fluff. Serve with maple syrup or honey for dipping.

Crispy Cheese Biscuits
Crispy cheese biscuits are perfect for brunch! Crispy on the outside. Cheesy inside.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Time to mix the dry ingredients! Combine the following:
-2 cups flour
-1 tbsp. baking powder
-Pinch of salt
-½ cup cold butter

Mix! Then add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and ¼ cup grated Parmesan. Slowly add ¾ milk. Stir until you have a soft dough. Add spoonfuls to your baking sheet. Keep them 2 inches apart.

Bake biscuits for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Cool before serving.

Short on time? Grab pre-made crispy cheese biscuits instead!

Honey-Glazed Ham Sliders
Ham is a traditional Easter dinner dish. Don’t want to wait until dinner to have some mouthwatering ham? You can serve some during Easter brunch, too! Of course, you’re not going to want to serve a whole ham during brunch. Hello, honey-glazed ham sliders!

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grab some buttery rolls. Slice them horizontally.

Place the bottoms in a baking dish. Layer honey-glazed ham onto the bottoms.

Use store-bought or DIY glaze: honey, brown sugar, Dijon.

Add Swiss cheese on top of the ham. Place the top halves of the rolls on top.

Grab a saucepan and melt some butter. Add honey and stir. Brush the mixture on the rolls. Cover with foil.

Bake sliders for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese melts and rolls are golden brown. Serve warm and enjoy!

Easter Bunny Fruit Platter
Want to add something healthier to your menu? An Easter Bunny fruit platter is a great choice!

Start with a large tray. Grab your favorite fruits. For this example, we’ll use the following:

To create the bunny, shape its head with a big platter or fruit mound. Use pineapple or melon slices for ears and secure with toothpicks if needed.

Use halved strawberries or grapes for the eyes, and a piece of kiwi or melon for the nose. Add more fruit slices around the head for the body and paws.

Add blueberries or small fruit pieces as grass, and use kiwi or pineapple to create a bow tie or collar for the bunny.

Tada! Your Easter Bunny fruit platter is ready!

Carrot-Orange Mimosas
Easter brunch isn’t complete without a refreshing drink! And nothing is better served alongside your Easter brunch than carrot-orange mimosas. They’re easy to make, too.

Mix equal parts fresh carrot and orange juice in a pitcher. Chill.

Ready to enjoy your mimosas? Fill champagne flutes halfway with the juice mixture. Then, top each glass with your favorite sparkling wine or champagne, such as dry Prosecco or Brut.

Garnish your mimosa with orange peels or carrot sticks for extra festivity. Add red wine to carrot-orange juice for a unique sangria twist. Cheers to Easter brunch!

A Feast of Flavor and Fun
Easter brunch offers endless opportunities! Be creative, or hire a chef to take care of everything for you. Enjoy carrot-orange mimosas with your family. Serve bunny-shaped pancakes―your kids will love them. Invite your neighbors over to enjoy crispy cheese biscuits. Each dish will surely delight and create a memorable experience for all involved.

Happy Easter!
