Easter Brunch Inspiration

Quiche for Easter

Easter is a time for family and friends to gather and share a meal. We’ve put together a few simple and brunch elegant recipes guaranteed to make this occasion feel special.

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.
