Easter Brunch Recipe Ideas

Planning your Easter brunch menu? Here are some of the dishes I love to include on mine.

1. Banana Almond Croissant Bread Pudding – it’s as good as it sounds

2. Grilled Salt & Vinegar Potatoes – they’re like your favorite salt and vinegar chips but better (and healthier)

3. Lightly scrambled eggs, inspired by Harvest Vine – free range eggs are so incredibly flavourful when runny

4. ‘Healthy’ Farmers Cookies – it’s nice to have treats set out all over the room for easy accessibility. These are dense, moist, packed with ‘stuff’, and highly addictive

5. Lemon Cornmeal Pancakes – double the lemon rind this recipe calls for and you’re golden

6. Really Good Toast – go above and beyond for special occasions and head to specialty store for certain items. You’ll go crazy for these loaves

7. Vanilla Bean Fruit Salad – this is your one requisite ‘healthy-ish’ dish

  • Dressing: vanilla with agave water or juice
  • Pick fruit that people like (not the unripe melon they pick out),eg. berries, mango, banana
  • Add fresh chopped mint
  • Salad alternative: Avocado Peach – click here for recipe
8. Bacon – because it’s a splurge day. Here are some great Vancouver butcher shops
9. Coffee – put your Costco coffee away and grab a pound of special beans for the occasion. Set out the Bailey’s as creamer (recipe)

10. Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice – if you’re really ambitious. Add the juice of a few lemons for extra zing
