Easter is a joyous holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, bringing new hope of salvation.
It’s also one of my favorite holidays not only because of fun activities like Easter egg hunting, DIY wreath making, or the excitement of making Easter crafts with the kids and adults alike but a sumptuous brunch
with loved ones that satisfy my food cravings.
Usually, my family would find Easter Day events to join then head to a restaurant for a fine meal. You might have been doing something similar with your family, too!
But what if we prepare our own little feast at home, whipping up the perfect Easter lunch ideas?

1. Healthy Breakfast Sandwiches
Healthy breakfast muffins like these are good for brunch or a quick light snack, but who can resist the good ol’ classic English muffins?
Replace your usual fast food breakfast sandwich with a healthy alternative made of chicken patties and egg whites. You get a healthy amount of protein with fewer calories!

Welcome spring with a bright salad loaded with veggies, chickpeas, and a tangy wine vinegar dressing.
4. Scotch Eggs
Add Scotch Eggs to your list of brunch ideas for Easter!
Just make sure you won’t mix these up with ones you’ll hide for a traditional Easter egg hunt.
Who knew apples work so well with eggs? It’s a good addition to your dining table as your family’s main course for brunch!
5. Crockpot French Toast
With your trusty Crockpot, you can easily prepare your French toast and then leave it to cook overnight.
By the time you’re ready for brunch, you have a moist, indulgent dish to pour syrup or blueberries all over!
6. Healthy Blueberry Coffee Cake
Skip your cup of coffee because a slice of this cake will leave you energized!
You mustn’t worry about how cakes are unhealthy for brunch. It’s actually good for you as it’s paleo-friendly and contains wholesome ingredients.
7. Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls
Instead of the typical savory dishes that you’re used to for brunch, opt for something sweeter.
You won’t have to take too much time or effort thanks to pre-made cinnamon rolls!
While cinnamon rolls are great Easter-themed breakfast ideas, you can also serve them for dessert!
8. Chicken Arugula Salad
If you’re having trouble looking for easy Easter brunch ideas at home, opt for hearty salads!
Whether you serve it as an appetizer or main course, salads are healthy, appetizing dishes that don’t require a ton of effort to make!
Chicken arugula salad is one of my favorites because of its refreshing flavors. The creamy dressing will be a hit, too!
9. Sweet Baked Potato Recipe
You can never go wrong with sweet baked potatoes!
Like carrots, you’ll get the benefits of beta carotene in sweet potatoes, which are good for your eyes and will make your skin glow too.
Your guests will love their taste, which is why this nutritious food makes it to our list as one of the best Easter brunch ideas for a crowd.
It’s an easy, versatile recipe so you can add whatever toppings that can cater to almost any diet or taste preference!
10. Beet Pickled Eggs
I’ll be honest – Beet pickled eggs do not sound or look appetizing at all. But once you take a bite, expect a pleasant, tangy flavor that pairs well with many dishes.
I recommend serving them to add more color and interesting flavors to any Easter brunch recipe, especially salads.
11. Easter Bread
Spread festive spirits and celebrate Easter with colorful Italian bread featuring an egg smack dab in the middle!
You can combine it with sweet or savory fillings, or have a slice on its own with a cup of coffee.
12. Italian Easter Pie
Go for a traditional Italian pie commonly served during Easter, also known as Torta Pasqualino.
It’s the main dish complete with spinach, eggs, and a ton of cheese encased within a flaky crust no one will get enough of.
13. Healthy Quiche
Eggs is an important symbol during Easter, representing new life and rebirth. Besides egg decorating or hunting, you can feature them in your dishes!
For brunch, serve a healthy, crustless quiche loaded with protein and veggies. If cheese is your guilty pleasure (like me), overload the dish with it, I’m not judging!
14. Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Bread
You don’t need to wait for dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth anymore with lemon poppy seed bread.
Plus, it’s a healthy recipe that contains healthy fat and protein, making it a guilt-free brunch dish!

16. Butternut, Apple, and Chicken Sausage Hash
Who would’ve thought apples would make a fantastic ingredient to breakfast hash recipes?
But once I think about it, apples are a sweet yet tart fruit that balances the savory flavors of sausages. You also get a nice crunch from it, making each bite an enjoyable one.
17. Easter Brunch Board
Hot cross buns, soft-boiled eggs, green veggies, colorful treats… It’s everything Easter-themed on one platter!
Serve an ultimate Easter brunch board as an appetizer for your guests to munch on while waiting for a sumptuous main course.
18. Chocolate Easter Nests
What’s brunch without dessert?
Interestingly enough, this dessert uses chow mein noodles. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it, though!
The noodles are a perfect decor to create a nest, coated in melted chocolate to add a sweet flavor.
Top your dessert off with mini candy eggs to really show the Easter theme.
19. Croque Madam Toast
Croque Madam sandwiches are classic brunch dishes, and it would be a mistake to not mention them on my list.
Cheese lovers will devour the entire dish, which only takes 20 minutes to do! So, don’t feel intimidated to make a fancy-looking brunch for family.
20. Easter Trifle Bowl
I have never seen anything more in line with Easter until I came across the Easter Trifle Bowl.
Surprise everyone with a huge, colorful dessert decorated with layers of cake, pudding, whipped cream, and egg nests on top!
