Easter traditions…we all have them! Whether it’s the Easter Egg Hunt, the Ham for Dinner or an Easter Brunch… traditions define your family.
In our family, we enjoy a simple Easter Breakfast and then a large meal with Ham and all the fixins’ in mid-afternoon. Now that the boys are older, we don’t have an Easter Egg Hunt anymore, but we still hide their baskets…it’s a tradition!
Starting today, and continuing through next week, we will be sharing some tried and true Easter Recipes that are traditional to our families. We are starting with this delicious Easter Brunch…and I DO mean delicious!
Easter Brunch Menu
- Amish Breakfast Casserole
- Orange Cranberry Muffins
- Fruit Salad
- Sunrise Punch
Let’s start with the main dish…Amish Breakfast Casserole! The recipe is from Taste of Home, one of my favorite sites for recipes, and the lady that submitted the recipe is from Indiana…so I knew it would be good! The recipe calls for bacon, which is what we used, but you could certainly add sausage or even ham if you want. I also think it would make a great casserole to use up the leftover Easter Ham.
We love fruit, but I think the boys eat it better when it’s in a salad, or at least cut up nicely and ready to eat. We added strawberries, blueberries, white grapes, pineapple and mandarin oranges, and a little juice from the pineapple to top it off. This Fruit Salad is easy…peasy!
These delicious little beauties…Orange Cranberry Muffins were the perfect addition! I love orange and cranberry flavors together! Head on over to Hoosier Homemade for the recipe…I’m celebrating Spring all week long!
With the combination of orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate and pineapple juice…this Sunrise Punch definitely wakes you up! We added some Sparkling Water to finish it off and a fun little pinwheel skewer with fruit, just for fun!
One of the very best things about this Easter Brunch…besides the taste, of course…is that every dish can be made up ahead and ready to serve! So if you are feeding a crowd for Easter Sunday morning, or just your family…it can be ready in a snap!
