Looking for simple Easter Brunch menu ideas you will love? Here are my suggestions on how to keep your day easy and low stress!
Every Easter morning before the sun would come out, my three kids would wake me up and ask if they could now look for their Easter baskets.
Tired and clearly still groggy, I would roll out of bed, throw on my robe, and tell my husband to wake up too. Then we all would venture downstairs together to watch our three cuties search for the baskets that the Easter Bunny had once again hidden for them to find.
Side note – did you grow up having to look for your basket? It was my family’s replacement for a Easter egg hunt. But honestly, I always found it more fun than looking for eggs with just one piece of candy in them anyway!
We would then get all gussied up for Easter mass and brunch after at a local restaurant to celebrate the holiday.
My kids are grown now and my two daughters usually end up going to the Coachella music festival instead of coming home for Easter so I have had to find different ways to celebrate the holiday.
Thus a backyard Easter brunch with family members and friends emerged as the plan almost ten years ago!
And if you know me – you know I always have a plan in place for this sort of thing.
Including an annual Easter brunch menu.
My menu doesn’t actually change much year after year. I mean – if it makes my mouth water year after year – why would I have to- right?
Five of my blogging friends and I have joined up to share our favorite Easter brunch ideas with you. So I know you will easily be able to find something to either add to your holiday table or find a great starting point ;).

My Easter Brunch Menu
I started making German pancakes when I was in middle school. A friend of mine had made them for me on a sleepover and I have been hooked ever since!!
Find my favorite German pancake recipe here.
It is a family favorite and is made for every big holiday (ie Easter, Christmas, birthdays). Although more recently, my husband has been trying to make them an every weekend treat- and who am I to refuse??
Be sure to save this recipe to your Pinterest boards because yes it is really that good!!
I bake my bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet at 450º for about ten minutes. Then using tongs, I flip the slices over and cook for another 5-8 minutes.
This way it is actually cooking in its own grease.
Yea – I know not the healthiest side dish. But honestly I don’t think bacon can ever be considered healthy anyway – right?
So you might as well just embrace the holiday and plan on eating healthy on another day ;).
I accidentally happened across this recipe on the Williams Sonoma website about five years ago. And being that I am an anything potato-aholic, of course I knew this was sure to be a favorite of mine and my family’s ;).
Be sure to allow for one hour to prep and one hour to bake them.
I made this recipe for my Galentine’s Day party in February this year and decided to slice them a few hours before baking them.
They did oxidize and turn slightly brown but that did not affect the flavor at all. And this recipe calls for baking the potatoes to a crisp so the oxidized brown look goes away after cooking anyway if you want to make them a few hours ahead of time.
The above photo is from the Williams Sonoma website with the potato recipe because every single time I have made this recipe – I FORGET TO TAKE A PHOTO OF THE FINISHED POTATOES!!!! 😂
Is there any other vegetable that says spring more than asparagus??
Peak months for this tasty vegetable are April and May. There are so many delicious recipes out there for how to cook asparagus. But for Easter brunch, I try to keep everything as simple as possible. So a recipe this simple that you bake in the oven is pretty perfect!
Fresh Strawberries with Marshmallow Dip
And the fruit that literally means spring and Easter to me is strawberries! We live right down the street from an AMAZING (and large) strawberry field so getting an entire flat of strawberries is a norm every spring and especially Easter for us.
And my entire family is addicted to a CRAZY SIMPLE marshmallow cream and cream cheese dip that we serve with our strawberries.
Use an electric mixer to whip one 7 oz can of marshmallow creme with one 8 oz cube of cream cheese until fluffy and well whipped. And serve!
Yup – it’s THAT EASY!
A Sumptuous Spring Cocktail
There are a million and one delicious cocktails out there! But once again – simple and easy is key for Easter brunch for me.
And I recently learned about Blake Lively’s company Betty Buzz which is tasty tonics to mix with your alcohol of choice.
The blog on the Betty Buzz website has some incredible (and simple) recipes including this one for a Strawberry Ginger Limelight.
But you could always keep it even simpler with mimosas with a raspberry and rosemary sprig as the extra festive touch ;).
I hope you found this post with simple Easter brunch menu ideas you will love super helpful for your holiday celebration.
I am sure chocolate Easter bunnies and jelly beans will also have a place at the table with you and your loved ones. Just be sure to take a look around you and be in the moment as much as you can ;).
