Easter Brunch Inspiration

Easter Brunch Inspiration

We know Easter may look a little different this year, as many of you are likely cooking for a smaller crowd. So, we’ve put together a few simple and elegant recipes guaranteed to make any occasion feel special, regardless of how many happy eaters are at your table.

Quiches are a beloved brunch brunch staple. Not only are they delicious, but because you can prepare them well before your meal, the morning of is a snap. You can easily pair your quiche with a light salad with baby spring mix and sliced cherry tomatoes and a balsamic vinaigrette to balance the savory flavor of what we like to think of as a savory egg pie.

Two of our favorite quiches for this spring feature seasonal favorite ingredients: lamb and ham.
