When I'm not blogging, I love walking to town with my husband for a date day, talking to my three young adult children about their lives, and planning pretty much anything I can- parties, projects, travel, budgets- you name it I will plan it! Click here to learn more about me!

How to Do Easter Brunch Right

Not sure about all of you but I seriously look forward to the meals that holidays entail! Everything about them gets me excited – from the decorations to planning the yummy food! And Easter Brunch is no exception. Here are my simple tips on how to do Easter Brunch right with your loved ones!

Pretty Table Decor

Did you already check out my post with simple and minimal Easter decor? How about we discuss Easter Brunch menus and table decor now? 🐰

A few years ago, we started bringing Easter brunch outside and it is now one of my favorite breakfasts of the year.

Easter Brunch

Most of us remember our Easter last year as one of social distancing and pretty much spending it without any friends or family. In fact, the Friday of 2020 Easter weekend is when my family experienced a mudslide in our backyard. If ya want more details on how that played out – go check out my Instagram story on it… let’s just say Easter 2020 was one for the books.

However- as an Instagram influencer and hopeful that I was going to spend a lovely Easter brunch with my three kids and husband (and not digging out mud in my backyard) – I did have a really pretty dining room table set up last year 😂.

This coming up Easter, we are looking forward to gathering with family and friends in our backyard again- be sure to follow along on my Instagram stories for how I plan to decorate the table for that gathering :).

A Delicious Easter Brunch Menu

Now for the good stuff- the food!!

Easter Brunch

German Pancakes

I promised you all a couple of months ago that I would put my recipe for German pancakes on the blog – I am so sorry it took me this long but finally here it is!

Ingredients you will need:

Easter Brunch

German Pancakes

Also called Dutch Oven or Puffed Oven Pancakes!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Course Breakfast
Servings 8 pieces

Ingredients
  

  • 4 Tbs Butter
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ½ tsp salt

Toppings

  • Butter
  • Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Lemon slices
  • Fresh Berries

Instructions
 

  • Place butter in a 9x 11 rectangular baking dish and place in a 400° oven for five minutes or until butter melts (while you are making the pancake mix)
  • In a bowl beat eggs (I use a whisk to do this)
  • Add milk and salt until well blended
  • Add flour and quickly whisk until well blended and somewhat bubbly
  • Immediately pour into hot baking dish while the dish is in the oven (pull oven shelf out first though!)
  • Bake 25 minutes or till puffed and well browned
  • Serve immediately with toppings of your choice – we love plain old butter, syrup, and powdered sugar on ours!

Bacon

No description needed here I assume!

Although I will tell you all that I get complimented ALL THE TIME on my bacon – my secret? I cook it on a baking sheet in the oven at 400° for ten minutes then flip the slices and cook for another 5-10 minutes until crispy 🥓.

Easter Brunch

Potato Stacks with Fresh Thyme

Okay you guys- I found this recipe about six years ago on the Williams Sonoma website and every time I make it – I think dang it I need to make these more often!

THEY ARE THAT GOOD!!

You absolutely need a mandolin slicer for this recipe (which always scares the daylights out of me to use) – but I get over my slicer fears for this recipe I have linked here for you!

Easter Brunch

And FYI – 24 muffin tins of these is how many I make for about 20 guests every Easter – and I usually have about 2-3 leftover for myself the next day :).

Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

Did you know spring/Easter is asparagus season?? I love the thin stalks of asparagus the most and look forward to this treat every year!

I found this recipe on the Williams Sonoma website as well (and also do not have any photos of my own of this yummy side dish 😬) – but will try to get a couple this year to add to the post for the future…

Easter Brunch

Fresh Strawberries

We are lucky enough to live right down the street from one of the best strawberry fields in Southern California so I just jump over there the Saturday before Easter every year and grab a whole flat of strawberries because well – you can never have enough strawberries!!

Easter Brunch

Mimosas and Bellinis

Seriously – is it even brunch if you don’t have champagne and oj??? 🤷‍♀️

My favorite bellini recipe is to fill half a champagne glass with champagne, then add a little bit of tangerine juice, grapefruit juice, a couple flakes of fresh thyme, a twig of rosemary and a berry! OMG THE BEST!!

But you can never go wrong with a simple glass of oj and champagne 🥂.

Good Friends and Family

Well honestly – after the year we have all experienced – this is truly the very very best part about celebrating Easter this year – isn’t it?? Make sure to enjoy your loved ones AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!

“After all, one can’t complain. I have my friends.”

I hope you found this post even a little bit helpful in planning your Easter Brunch celebration next weekend or maybe Mother’s Day?? So many fun and pretty celebrations coming up!

But really – any excuse to eat pancakes, potatoes, and bacon and drink champagne works for me!!
