Easter Brunch Recipe Roundup

Easter Brunch Recipe Roundup

Planning an Easter Brunch?  I love recipes that you can make ahead, so there’s minimal prep work when you’d rather be hanging out with the family.  Here are some of our favorite recipes for your family gathering.  Many of these you could make ahead, pop in to bake while the kids hunt for eggs, then enjoy after the hunt!  Be sure to Pin this post so you have all these great recipes saved in one place!

Christmas Breakfast

“Christmas Breakfast” (there’s also a good recipe for Sausage Gravy & Biscuits in this post)

Don’t let the name fool you–it’s great for Easter or any other time of the year as well as Christmas!  A simple make-ahead egg casserole that you can customize with sausage, bacon, or ham–whatever your family likes!

No lie–I suggested brunch for my husband’s extended family get-together, just so I could make and bring this.  Sooooo good! 🙂

Resurrection Rolls

Resurrection Rolls

 A tasty treat and a meaningful object lesson about Jesus’ resurrection, all rolled into one!

Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Glaze

These things are the real deal, guys–I followed her recipe above, with just a few adjustments.  Rather than melting the butter (which was super messy for me the first time I made them), I just set the butter out for a few hours to get really, really soft and spread it.  Made them much easier (and less messy) to roll up.  I also cut thicker pieces to make taller rolls, so I gave them a few extra minutes to bake.  But oh my word–the icing.  Amazing!  These look so hard, but they’re totally do-able, and you can make them the night before.  I’m taking these to our Easter morning breakfast at church!
