6 Egg-ceptional Recipes for Easter Brunch
Today, we have a delicious collection of mouth-watering Easter brunch recipes. I feel like some savoury protein is needed to anchor the two pounds of candy you know you’re going to consume before the weekend is out. And these Easter eggs are much more than just your basic scrambled (or a hollow chocolate).
I did my Easter bunny shopping two weeks early – and the stash is slowwwwwly dwindling. But who are we kidding, I was going to hide it all from the kids (like, actually hide it – not fun hide it like you’re supposed to) after Easter Monday anyway. That’s why it makes sense to go ahead and just buy your own favs (Cadbury creme eggs & mini eggs and Reeses Easter cups for me), right moms?
What are you making for brunch this Easter??

BRUNCH! I absolutely LOVE brunch. Personally, I believe it isn’t just for Sundays or special holidays like Easter, but should be celebrated any and all days of the week. Currently, I am on a mission to try every brunch place in Vancouver. Although the options are limitless, my favourite food to have at brunch is eggs. They are so versatile, delicious, offer a lot of nutritional value, and are especially photogenic!
Here are just a few of my favourite egg brunch recipes, perfect for impressing your family at Easter with minimal effort.
A potato crust is worlds easier and faster than making pastry – and it tastes like a giant hashbrown. It’s just grated raw potatoes and oil, but it turns into quiche magic. (Bonus: it happens to be gluten-free, for any celiac friends or family members.) The version linked has sausage and gruyere, but feel free to swap in your favourite quiche fillings. This year I might do asparagus and pancetta.
Shakshuka is traditionally a Middle Eastern and North African dish that is perfect for sharing. Combining tomatoes and eggs with lots of spices like paprika, cumin, jalapeno, and garlic, this dish is definitely an upgrade from the usual scrambled eggs with Sriracha, am I right? Shakshuka can be eaten straight from the pan but is typically served with fresh baguette.
A perfectly poached egg on a tender portobello mushroom topped with a light and creamy hollandaise sauce, this dish is a fun twist on a classic brunch recipe. Created by the very talented Jennifer from Foodess, this recipe is super simple and can be whipped up in under 30 minutes! Not a fan of mushrooms? Try this recipe with some ham or bacon on a homemade english muffin. Delish!
This one is sure to impress your family. Although it may look very complicated, it is surprisingly super simple and easy to substitute ingredients. This recipe calls for asparagus but any vegetable could be substituted like spinach, mushrooms, or bell peppers. If you do not have steak available, bacon or ham works as well. But don’t forget the chive garnish because chives are an eggs best friend!
Carbs and eggs with more carbs, bacon, and cheese. Are you drooling yet? Because I sure am. One of my favourite ways to enjoy runny eggs is with crispy spiced potatoes. This Skillet Potato and Egg Hash has the perfect spice blend of cumin, paprika, garlic, and chili powder. Not to mention, the spice to potato ratio is on point.
If you’re just as indecisive as I am this Brunch Bruschetta Bar recipe is for you! This recipe seriously has it all: poached eggs, scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon, tomatoes, basil, avocado, nut butters, fruit, and more! You have complete freedom to customize your breakfast by mix and match toppings. This recipe has something for everyone but the key to making this a success is fresh bread!
