Are you stressed, tired, and desperate for some easy Easter brunch ideas this year? If this sounds like you, I have a few sanity-saving ideas that may just make your holiday easier.
Easter Brunch Ideas
This has been a long challenging year and I think everyone is looking forward to a celebration. Easter is the best reason to rejoice. But now, more than ever, I want a holiday meal that is easy to make so I am free to experience some of that much-needed joy.
I have come up with a few great tricks over the years, so I’m combining them for an easy Easter brunch my family will love.
Let’s get into these tips for a simpler and happier holiday for you!
1) Think Drink
Having a special drink for your Easter brunch can truly elevate the meal. This Easter brunch idea is simple—really.
I know when you see “special” you may think it’s complicated. That doesn’t have to be the case.
This year we are using our new easy clean juicer. It’s a high capacity, so we can make a lot of juice all at once: Think carrot cucumber juice or even a peach juice for those Easter brunch ideas!
The best part is that it virtually cleans itself. Just some light rinsing and that’s all.
If a new juicer isn’t in your future, I recommend this refreshing citrus mocktail. It’s as easy as making a party punch and I love that it uses frozen berries for the ice. Your drink stays frosty instead of getting watered down.
2) Use a Bread Machine
This Easter brunch idea may be something you never thought to do before. Use your bread machine to help make delicious cinnamon rolls in a snap.
I created this simple recipe when I wanted to make a clone of a Cinnabon. It’s so easy.
Okay, some assembly is required, but it couldn’t be any easier than this.
The bread machine does all of the dough work. So, if you have a bread machine it’s time to dust it off and get it cranking. Don’t worry if you don’t have a bread machine, I have directions for that too.
3) Use a Sheet Pan
With our large family, we like to have plenty of food and lots of options. Recently, I experimented with sheet pan pancakes and it was a total win.
Not only did it make a lot of food that was all hot and ready at the same time, but it also allowed us to add a variety of fillings.
Everyone was able to get just what they wanted and I didn’t feel like a short-order cook flipping pancakes while everyone else ate. These pancakes are great Easter brunch ideas for big families.
4) Use Your Crockpot
You may see a pattern here, but in my defense, machines were made to make our lives easier. So, let’s use them!
I like using my crockpot to heat the ham for holiday meals.
Making glazed ham in a crockpot is not only easy, but it also saves space in the oven for other items. And even better yet it stays moist and warm for when you are ready to serve it.
Forget Easter brunch ideas, this is great for any holiday or family feast. You can thank me later.
5) Order Your Easter Brunch
Yes, I said it. When it comes to Easter brunch ideas, nothing, and I mean nothing, is easier than ordering your Easter brunch.
When it comes to prepared meats, sides, and desserts my go-to is always Omaha Steaks. They have all-inclusive Easter dinner choices for 4, 6, or 8 people. The Easter brunch includes your choice of meat, sides, an appetizer, and a dessert.
Pro tip: If you are looking at a meal be sure to order right away. As time gets closer to the holiday the items offered are subject to change.
I love that I can order from the comfort of home and simply heat the items according to the directions for a perfect Easter brunch. It’s the ultimate in ease.
And, check this out, Omaha Steaks sells wine. How’s that for a special drink?
Of course, you can order just the meat, or order just sides to make your Easter brunch easier on a budget.
