Easter Brunch Recipes

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!

Walmart has lots of great Easter items, including all the groceries for our Easter Brunch. Check out their recipes!

Amish Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Breakfast Casserole that is perfect for brunch and hearty enough for dinner. Recipe from PocketChangeGourmet.com Adapted from Taste of Home

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of bacon, cooked and diced {or you can use sausage or ham}
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups bag frozen hash browns, shredded and thawed - we bought a 30 oz bag and used about 2/3 of the bag
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/4 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups {12 oz} Cottage Cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cook bacon {we like cooking bacon in the oven, less mess and better flavor}
  3. Saute onion in a little oil on the stovetop
  4. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, stir in bacon and onion
  5. Transfer to a 13x9 baking dish
  6. Bake uncovered for 40-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean {this is a wide range of time, every oven cooks differently, keep an eye on it}

Notes

Liz says... You can make this casserole up ahead, just cover tightly and store in fridge. To bake, remove from fridge and set on counter for 20-30 minutes, cook as directed in the recipe.

Doug says... A little salt and pepper should be added, about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
