Easter can be a busy time of year, especially if you’re the one hosting. Between church and planning and cooking and cleaning, it can have you feeling a little overwhelmed. Well, fear not! Try one of these easy brunch recipes to help make your Easter go that much smoother!

4 Easter Brunch Recipes Perfect for Any Family:


1. Monte Cristo Sliders

Ingredients:

  • 2 (12-count) packs King’s Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls (though any brand will do!)
  • 1 pound sliced deli honey ham
  • ½ pound sliced gruyere cheese
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Couple dashes Worcestershire sauce

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 13×9 baking dish. Cut each roll in half horizontally, so that you have 24 slider buns. Place the bottoms of each bun on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Then evenly layer on the ham slices over the roll bottoms, followed by the cheese slices then the roll tops. In a medium bowl, mix together butter, egg, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce until combined. Evenly pour mixture over tops of rolls. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil, but make sure it’s tented, so that it doesn’t actually touch the slider tops. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove foil and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. So good!


2. Bacon and Feta Frittata

Ingredients:

  • 10 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 strips bacon, chopped
  • 3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
  • ¼ cup onion, diced
  • 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • ¾ cup cherry tomatoes, halved

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until combined, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a medium cast iron skillet (or any other oven-safe pan) over medium heat, cook bacon pieces until just crispy, about 4-5 minutes. Discard bacon grease, but leave a tablespoon or so in the pan. Put pan (with bacon) back on the burner and add in your chopped spinach. Cook, stirring often, until spinach is just wilted, about 3-4 minutes. Add the egg mixture and onion to the pan and stir until combined. Top with feta cheese and tomatoes. Place pan in oven and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the frittata has set. Let cool for 10 minutes then enjoy!


3. Baked Breakfast Avocado

Ingredients:

  • 4 avocados, halved long-ways and pitted
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped, divided
  • Salt to taste
  • 8 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • Paprika to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Using a spoon (or melon baller if you’re feeling fancy), scrape out about 2 tablespoons of avocado flesh from the hole of each avocado half. This will give the eggs more room to fit in there. In a muffin tin (a baking dish would work too), place each avocado half skin-side down. One at a time, crack each egg into a ramekin or small bowl, then gently pour into an avocado half. Sprinkle half of the bacon pieces over the avocado halves, then season with salt. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs cooked. Remove from oven, immediately top with cheese, paprika, and remaining bacon, then let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.


4. Raspberry and Blackberry Oatmeal Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup almonds, roasted and chopped
  • ¼ cup walnuts, roasted and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×9 baking dish. Layer bottom of baking dish with the raspberries and blackberries. In a medium bowl, mix together oats, shredded coconut, almonds, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until combined. Evenly pour dry mixture over berries in bottom of baking dish. In the same bowl, mix together almond milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla extract until combined. Evenly pour wet mixture over top of dry mixture in the baking dish. Don’t mix! Instead, use the back end of a spoon to push the dry mixture down so that it is completely covered by the wet mixture. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until the oats are lightly brown and berries are bubbling along the edges of the baking dish.
