Though nothing complements a morning Easter egg hunt like Sunday brunch, the chef should also be able to join the fun. Our Easter Sunday brunch recipes are beautiful to behold and still leave time to enjoy family, friends and chocolate eggs. From sweet scones to a savory strata, here’s how to serve a balance of spring flavors that all your guests will love.
Easy and Elegant Easter Sunday Brunch Recipes
As much as we may love a brunch, it can be a rush to prepare when combined with Easter morning festivities. Our Easter brunch plan contains recipes that are easily assembled in the moment or prepared in advance and still have an elegant flare.
Spinach and Artichoke Quiche
The beloved flavors of spinach artichoke dip are all dressed up in their Easter best for this beautiful quiche. With freshly grated cheese, cream and a simple homemade crust, this quiche will be a centerpiece of your brunch table before it disappears.
- Heavy Cream
- Artichoke hearts
- Cheddar cheese
- Freshly grated Parmesan
While the dough for this quiche can be made in advance, the entire dish can be baked up to 48 hours before Easter. Simply warm it in the oven or serve at room temperature, saving the Parmesan to sprinkle over the top before baking. Get the full recipe.
Lemon Blueberry French Toast Bake
Though French toast is one of those classic Easter brunch recipes, no one wants to spend hours standing over a griddle. This lemon blueberry French toast bake elevates a simple dish by using lemon zest, fresh blueberries and fresh maple butter. Best of all, it’s baked in the oven so you get all the French toast feels while mingling with your guests.
- Hawaiian slider rolls
- Lemon Zest
- Maple syrup
While this dish is baking, the maple butter can be assembled in the mixer and reserved. Top with chopped bacon when it comes out of the oven for a salty topping to this sweet showstopper. Get the full recipe.
Tomato Cheddar Strata
A strata is a savory version of a sweet bread pudding that can showcase vegetables, warm melted cheese and fresh spring herbs. It’s one of the best brunch recipes for a crowd, containing 8 eggs, two cheeses, and a loaf of crusty bread. But best of all, it’s all the better when assembled the night before, enabling the bread to soak up all the flavors.
- Grape tomatoes
- 1 loaf crusty bread
- Herbes de Provence
Refrigerating this dish after assembling, whether it’s for several hours or overnight, is key to allowing the flavors to blend together. It can be served warm or at room temperature, making it one of the most versatile savory brunch recipes. Get the full recipe.
Pea and Prosciutto Salad
As much as we love our sweet and savory Easter Sunday brunch recipes, a spring salad brings some freshness to the table. Delicate snow peas are one of the first spring vegetables and can be used in place of sugar snap peas if they’re available. Meanwhile, thin slices of pink prosciutto provide the perfect color and flavor contrast to this elegant green salad.
- Lemon juice
- Dijon mustard
- Fresh green peas
- Sugar snap peas
These fresh vegetables boil in just two minutes and plunging them in a bath of ice water afterward preserves their bright green color. Dress the greens with the dressing before topping with thin slices of prosciutto. Get the full recipe.

How can you satisfy a sweet tooth with a sophisticated touch? A basket of fresh cream scones lends style and grace to your brunch while also feeling like a special treat. This basic recipe can be enhanced with the flavors of your choice from chocolate chunks to lemon and rosemary. Just don’t forget the butter and jam.
