Celebrate the season with these family-friendly Easter brunch recipes
Easter is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start thinking about what to serve for brunch. This year, why not make it extra special and gather your family and friends together to savour some delicious Easter brunch recipes? From sweet to savoury, here are some Easter treats that are bound to inspire you and your family.
Carrot cake pancakes
They're fluffy, moist, and packed with all the delicious flavours of a classic carrot cake. The sweet and spiced flavour of the pancakes makes them a perfect complement to classic brunch dishes like quiches, breakfast potatoes, and fresh fruits. To make your Easter brunch special, try decorating these pancakes with a cream cheese glaze, chopped nuts, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Spinach and feta quiche
Quiche is always a crowd-pleaser, and spinach and feta quiche is no exception. It's rich, creamy, and packed with flavour. To make it, start by making a pie crust from scratch or using a store-bought one. Blind bake the crust in the oven for about 10 minutes. In a skillet, cook some chopped spinach until wilted. In a bowl, whisk together some eggs, heavy cream, and crumbled feta cheese. Add the cooked spinach to the egg mixture and pour it into the pie crust. Bake the quiche in the oven until it's golden brown and set.
Bacon and egg cups
These bacon and egg cups are easy to make and perfect for serving a crowd. To make them, start by lining a muffin tin with bacon slices. Crack an egg into each bacon cup and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Serve with some chopped chives on top.
Lemon blueberry scones
These lemon blueberry scones are light, buttery, and bursting with fresh blueberry flavour. To make them, start by whisking together some flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add some cold butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut it into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in some fresh blueberries and lemon zest. In a separate bowl, whisk together some buttermilk and an egg. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Pat the dough into a circle and cut it into wedges. Bake the scones in the oven until they're golden brown and flaky.
Honey glazed ham
No Easter brunch is complete without a delicious honey glazed ham. Start by scoring the surface of a fully cooked ham with a sharp knife. In a saucepan, combine some honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, and apple cider vinegar. Brush the glaze all over the ham and bake it in the oven until the glaze is sticky and caramelised.
