10 Eggcellent Easter Brunch Recipes
There’s no better time to make a decadent egg-centric breakfast than this Sunday, March 27—Easter! If you have a crowd coming over for an egg hunt or bunny hop, select an easy dish that serves a large number of people, like a frittata with pesto and spinach, quiche with broccoli and ham, or strata with potatoes and cheese. If you’re not celebrating with friends and family, why not make a leisurely Sunday breakfast for your significant other? Celebrate the bounty that is spring and impress with asparagus eggs Benedict or a healthy take on huevos rancheros. Ready to start cooking? Here are 10 awesome egg recipes that you must add to your brunch rotation.
A cocotte is a small individual serving dish that is heatproof and can be placed in the oven. If you have enough ramekins, you can make this classic French treat for a group. Crisp the bacon, grate the cheese, and fill the ramekins the night before Easter. All you have to do in the morning is crack the eggs on top and bake. A side of hearty buttered toast is a must.
This is a great frittata recipe that can be used as a base to build upon. Keep the egg ratio the same, but swap out the vegetables and cheese. Use roasted red peppers, basil, and feta instead of the onion, spinach, and goat cheese. White cheddar, mushrooms, and shallots are another delicious combination.
Deviled eggs are a delightful appetizer morning, noon, and night, so if your brunch is leaning more toward lunch with the food spread, whip up an assortment of deviled eggs—watercress-horseradish, tomato-pimento, smoked salmon-radish, or miso-sriracha—to pair alongside that honey-baked ham.
Did you know that an egg can be cracked on basically any base ingredient—from pizza to a pile of beans—and baked? If you’ve never tried this effortless egg-cooking technique, experiment with this recipe. Eggs are baked on a bed of black beans; serve with a dollop of guacamole, spicy chipotle salsa, sour cream, and a michelada, and you’ve got a breakfast fiesta!
