Brunch is one of my favorite meals because you can serve a mixture of breakfast and lunch items, as well as sweet and savory. This weekend we are hosting Easter brunch at my parent’s house for our immediate family and in-laws. The menu is not confirmed, but I have a few ideas as to what everyone would like to eat.
Inspired by the breakfast served at The Gilded Hotel in Newport, I’d love to make Loaded Baked Potato Breakfast Scones for Easter Brunch. The savory scone was served alongside a baked egg and light salad (grilled peach, prosciutto, mozzarella, and arugula), but for our brunch I’ll be making the scones alone.
A perfect egg dish is a Mini Frittata Brunch Bar. Offering a variety of mix-ins for frittatas baked in a muffin tin is satisfying for an guest who likes eggs. Two of my siblings and my Mom are vegetarians, so egg frittatas with fresh herbs and vegetables are a great option. My Mom always makes a quiche when we have brunch, and this is a versatile dish as well. One other option for vegetarians at brunch is a Meatless Tater Tot Casserole . For guests that eat meat, why not add ham and broccoli instead.
A Charcuterie Board is a popular Easter Brunch Menu ideas because you can please a variety of guests – those that eat meat and those that do not. It is important to consider not everyone wants to eat eggs for brunch! For a DIY Charcuterie Board, the options are endless – a combination of fresh spreads, fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and meats are required.
Another spread for brunch that is sure to please everyone is a bagel bar. My sister hosted a brunch for my brother in law with the most delicious bagel bar – she had a variety of bagel flavors, cream cheese, lox, capers, onions, avocado, tomatoes, olives, and more. If you have guests who like sweet toppings for their bagel, why not offer fresh fruit, jelly, peanut butter, or even Nutella?
For the sweet loving guests at brunch, a french toast overnight bake is an easy and delicious option. We know for sure that a french toast bake will be on the Easter Brunch Menu since my sister’s mother-in-law is bringing one. I’ve also made a Strawberry Stuffed French Toast Bake in the past that my in-laws loved for brunch one morning.
Last but not least, when it comes to an Easter Brunch Menu, you can’t forget the drinks. Fresh squeezed orange juice, apple cider, and steaming coffee are must haves. Perhaps we will set up a station for Mimosas and Bloody Marys too… because what brunch is complete without a fun cocktail?
