With a golden hashbrown crust, this quiche is perfectly crafted using some of the classic quiche favorites such as peppers and onions, then bacon, spinach and some Gruyere cheese. With a quiche as beautifully constructed as this – don’t be surprised if it’s finished before the Easter egg hunt begins!
Now here’s a unique way to use up your decorated hard boiled Easter eggs—turn them into a bunny-loving egg salad! Simply slice Pillsbury Crescent Dough into strips and roll each around a metal cream horn to get the carrot shape. Brush the uncooked dough with orange food coloring and bake until golden brown on their metal horns. Let cool and stuff with egg salad using fresh dill sprigs as carrot tops.
Brunch ready with the help of a sheet pan – this recipe is a simple “Egg In A Hole” classic, with a twist of some chopped ham, and shredded cheese. Garnish it however you like, and serve warm straight from the oven. No standing at the stove and flipping required for these!
You don’t have to wake at the crack of dawn to prepare this lavish breakfast bread pudding casserole. Simply assemble the ingredients—a savory mixture of onion, spicy pork sausage, sharp cheddar, parsley, bread, eggs and cream along with some seasonings to create a dish that’s easy to make, and even easier to slice up and serve.
This lovely frittata-inspired recipe gets a spring makeover with seasonal mint and sweet green peas. However, its spicy Spanish roots call for a wood-fired tortilla shell filled with a savory egg mixture baked until golden brown. Finish with a few scoops of creamy Greek yogurt and serve warm from the oven.
This is a food fusion that is not to be missed. In true Elvis style, this french toast twist is a grilled peanut butter and bacon sandwich between two pieces of french toast, topped with sliced bananas that are caramelized in sugar, butter…and bourbon. Easter brunch won’t know what hit it.
With just a few ingredients this recipe is made in a cast iron pan (or skillet) creating a savory dance of flavors with onions, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, Brussels sprouts, and eggs. It’s easily served up on its own, or on some toasted french bread. If you’re looking for a low-carb option for breakfast – this is certainly an appetizing choice.
Smell that? Light, flaky, buttery scones pulled hot from the oven and slathered with butter and fresh fruit preserves. Is your mouth watering yet? This slightly unique take on traditional scone recipes calls for heavy cream, eggs, and cake flour brushed with an egg wash and sugar for the fluffiest scones you’ve ever tasted.
With a puff pastry crust, that you can easily buy in the store, this tart is loaded up with goat cheese, then asparagus, then topped with a freshly cracked couple of eggs before it goes in the oven for baking. The results are incredible.
When you’re hosting, the last thing you want is to be babysitting all of your food while your guests watch on. With this recipe, prepping your vegetables is all you need before placing the mixture into a sheet pan, and cracking some eggs on top. Once baked, everything comes out amazing and ready to serve!
If you want to see the delight on the faces of your mid-morning guests – serve pizza. It’s a pretty much guaranteed happy reaction. This pizza lends itself to a breakfast or brunch dish, simply by combining well-loved breakfast foods all onto naan bread (easily store bought) and prepped in just 10 minutes. Finished off with 15 minutes in the oven, you have yourself an amazing breakfast to please.
When it comes to quick and easy – this is the recipe you’ll be reaching for. An omelet made in a hollowed out croissant, filled with eggs, bacon, melted cheese and baked to perfection. This could also be easily customized to the tastes of each of your guests, similar to an omelet bar.
