Make your Easter brunch extra special this year with one of these fresh and fast spring recipes! From eggs, to casseroles, to pancakes, there's sure to be something on this list for the whole family.
Oatmeal Creme Brulee
This baked oatmeal recipe makes an everyday breakfast into a brunch-worthy meal! Top with berries, walnuts and a light dusting of brown sugar.
Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream
Sweet strawberries, tart balsamic vinegar and creamy ricotta combine beautifully in this berry parfait. This dish adds a perfect sweet note to complement heartier brunch fare. We like it topped with a dusting of chocolate shavings.
Bacon-Cheddar Breakfast Muffins
These savory muffins pair well with fresh fruit and yogurt. They'll look great nestled in a basket on your brunch table!
Light Lemon Blueberry Donuts
These light blueberry donuts are always a hit at special occasions. Plus, at just over 100 calories per donut, even the most calorie-conscious of your guests can have a taste.
Asparagus and Ham Mini Quiches
These portion-controlled mini quiches make for a great light brunch--and they keep well for leftovers, too. Serve with fresh fruit and lightly dressed greens to round out the meal.
Classic Huevos Rancheros
Add a little zip to normal eggs with this filling, spicy huevos rancheros recipe. We like serving these with a little guacamole on the side.
Fluffy, golden pancakes studded with juicy strawberries will be the star of your Easter brunch. We like them with a side of crispy bacon.
Asparagus Tart with Ricotta
Fresh asparagus and creamy ricotta make for a decadent flavor and texture combination. Pair this springtime tart with a side of fruit and yogurt for an elegant and filling brunch.
Better Breakfast Casserole
This lightened-up breakfast casserole feeds a crowd! Serve with fruit and hot coffee or tea.
Mini Veggie Frittatas
Individual frittatas are a perfectly portion-controlled addition to your brunch spread. We like tomatoes and broccoli in these, but feel free to add any veggies you'd like. (They'd also be great with seasonal asparagus!)
Healthy Blueberry Scones
These crumbly scones are bursting with sweet and tart blueberries. Serve them warm with a bit of butter and jam.
Simple Asparagus Omelet
These veggie-packed omelets are bursting with spring flavor. Add any other vegetables of your choice, but definitely don't skimp on the asparagus; the flavor is best this time of year!
Berry Power Muffins
These healthy muffins are bursting with good stuff like berries, flax seed and oats. Serve them up alongside scrambled eggs and a side of fruit.
Lightened-Up Home Fries
Slash calories from your home fries with this slimmed-down recipe. These crispy taters are best served up alongside eggs and bacon, or even eggs Benedict if you're feeling more ambitious.
Challah French Toast
Challah bread is a soft egg bread with a golden color and fluffy texture. In French toast form, it's perfect topped with syrup, berries and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
