Can you guys believe Easter is just a week away?!
I know I’ve said this like a million times over, but man, this year is flying by! Before we know it it’s going to be September 12th and the Half Baked Harvest Cookbook will be out. Then I’ll be one giant ball of nerves waiting for you guys to read it, cook from it, and hopefully love it! I just turned in all the very final edits, now it’s off (literally via FedEx) for multiple rounds of proof reading (and hopefully then some). Which I very much need because my grammar is so horrible! I’m maybe just a little stressed about a grammatical error being printed. As if you couldn’t tell…
But anyway, today is all about Easter brunch. You guys know that I love a good brunch recipe. I think in the last month alone I’ve shared at least five breakfast/brunch recipes. Therefore, with Easter being exactly one week from today, I figured that this was the day to share my ultimate Easter brunch menu! There’s a little bit of everything here, so pick and choose your favorites, or just make a whole bunch! I’m also sharing a few entertaining and make ahead tips as well!
And be sure to check back this week for a few more Easter recipes, and an easy (and cheesy) dinner, plus a last-minute cocktail!
OK here we go..
Tip: all of these drinks can be made virgin by simply omitting the booze. <–making things works for everyone!
Minty Grapefruit Caipirinha <–for a little bit of Brazilian vibe.
Blood Orange Champagne Mule Tip: if you can’t find blood oranges, try using regular orange juice or any other fruit juice! Strawberries would be great for spring.
Rose Tequila Sangria Tip: this is great to make ahead for a big crowd.
Roasted Red Pepper Meze Platter Tip: prepare all the elements in advance and then put it all together on a platter before serving.
Marinated Cherry Tomatoes with Burrata + Toast <–big crowd pleaser.
Farmers Market Hummus Tip: the hummus can be made in advance, then add the toppings just before serving.
Spring Pea and Carrot Salad with Carrot Top Pesto <–gotta get those carrots in!
Heirloom Tomato Cheddar Tart with Everything Spice <–super easy.
Artichoke Shakshuka <–good for a crowd.
Turkish Fried Eggs in Herbed Yogurt Tip: make the yogurt in advance and fry up a whole bunch of eggs at once. Then let everyone assemble their own plates.
Raspberry Ricotta Croissant French Toast <– one my favorite french toast recipes of all time. Hello croissants.
Easy Lemon Ricotta Old Fashioned Doughnuts Tip: prepare the dough ahead of time and make the glaze. Fry just before serving for a super delicious doughnut.
Meyer Lemon Chamomile Suzette Crepes with Greek Yogurt Tip: make the crepes in advance and then build a crepe bar full of whipped cream, yogurt, berries, and other fun toppings!
Creamy Coconut Almond Breakfast Pops <– a fun and healthy treat for kids!
Coconut Eton Mess Cake with Whipped Ricotta Cream <–show stopper.
Coconut Banana 3-Milk Cupcakes with Nutella Buttercream <–for the chocolate lovers.
