Whether your Easter festivities include stuffing baskets with chocolate bunnies and/or attending Sunday service, a family meal is usually part of the day. Celebrate this year with any of these quick tasty brunch recipes, all of which feature everyone’s favorite Easter food: eggs!

There’s no better way to enjoy Easter Sunday than with these delicious egg-heavy brunch dishes. Some are fancy, and some are just downright fun, so take your pick!

A Breakfast Casserole

Tastes Better from Scratch

One of the best ways to feed a hungry crowd is by featuring all the ingredients in one big dish, casserole-style! This recipe uses diced bell peppers, green onions, breakfast sausage, and eggs, so you get to enjoy all the tasty flavors in each bite.

We really love this recipe because it can freeze and thaw well, so you can make it now and serve It later. If you aren’t a fan of freezing but worry about having enough time on Easter morning, prepare all the ingredients aside from the eggs, then combine the day of and bake away.

Go fancy-French with a lovely spring quiche featuring rich gruyere and green leafy spinach. Each lovely slice will offer a delicate shallot flavor, which provides a perfect balance to the egg-based dish. Enjoy serving this traditional beauty alongside a few other brunch favorites.

Damn Delicious

We love sheet pan meals for their ability to serve delicious results for many mouths in no time. This egg-in-a-hole rendition is a perfect example of getting brunch out promptly.

Egg-in-a-hole is an old traditional meal where you cut out the center of a buttered slice of bread, place it in a hot skillet, and crack an egg into the center hole. This sheet pan version also uses sliced bacon, sprinkled parmesan, and chives for an upgraded flair like no other.

Taste of Home

Earthy mushrooms and eggs make a lovely pair, and this recipe is a fantastic way to unite the ingredients. Using the old reliable cast-iron skillet, you’ll slowly cook your eggs, then pour over a scratch parmesan sauce and sauteed mushrooms.

This lovely dish is basically a fancy version of scrambled eggs and mushrooms with cheese but at a sophisticated level that’ll wow everyone. The rich flavor in each bite pairs just right with toasted farmers’ bread, too.

Breakfast burritos make a perfect grab-and-go breakfast and disappear fast in big family brunches! Plus, these little guys freeze great, so aside from Easter, you can make a bunch and eat them over time when you are in a morning rush.

The recipe is perfect as is, but feel free to customize them to your liking. Use bacon instead of sausage; try adding a few crispy fried tater tots or different veggies.

Use store-bought or homemade pizza dough, and feel free to customize with ingredients you love most. If you have little ones, be sure to get them involved in adding toppings for a fun cooking adventure in the kitchen.

Skinny Taste

Avocado toast has really made a name for itself these days—you’ll even find it on some fast-food menus. We say make it at home for the freshest take because it’s a quick, tasty, and cheap way to eat a hearty and healthy breakfast.

Go a step further and add an egg-cooked sunny side up (or over easy) to get the most of the rich, runny yolk. Keep in mind this recipe works great with poached, scrambled, or even sliced hard-boiled eggs, so be sure to cook them to your liking.

Breakfast strata is like a layered casserole dish consisting of morning mains like eggs, bread, and cheese. Similar to a savory bread pudding, this delicious meal is brunch gold.

We found a tasty version featuring briny bacon bits, ham, and loads of cheddar. We love how versatile this recipe is. Add spinach or garlic roasted mushrooms, or feel free to include soft goat cheese for a tangy twist. You’ll love this quiche-casserole mashup.

Sometimes, keeping things real simple is the way to go. If you feel that, then be sure to whip up these quick and tasty croissant breakfast sandwiches.

Make them ahead, freeze them for later, or best yet, serve them up on Easter morning before the annual Easter egg hunt festivities begin.
