Favorite Brunch Recipes for Easter

The best thing about celebrating a holiday is spending time with people we love. The second best thing is the food  – although, in this case, it’s a close second! Easter is the perfect occasion to enjoy your family and welcome spring with a delicious Easter breakfast or brunch.

Hosting a big Easter brunch is one of my favorite holiday traditions and something I look forward to every year. Whether we’re celebrating with friends, family or a mixture of both, we love to go all out with a big holiday spread.

This list of Easter breakfast-turned-lunch recipe ideas does not disappoint. You literally could eat your way from breakfast to lunch to dessert without skipping a beat and if you need more ideas checkout my Easter dinner menu! From traditional breakfast foods to a creative spin on old favorites, there is something on this list that even your pickiest eaters will not be able to resist!


What do you eat for Easter brunch?

A variety of options is a great idea when planning an Easter brunch menu. Savory egg dishes, sweet pastries and delicious yet easy breads like pancakes, crepes or muffins are all good ideas to include so everyone can have a little of everything!

What do you for breakfast at Easter?

There are so many delicious options for Easter breakfast ideas! Boiled eggs, sweet rolls, pancakes and make ahead breakfast casseroles always go over well.

What do you serve at an Easter buffet?

If you are hosting an Easter brunch, planning an Easter buffet so guests can easily pick and choose what they want is a great idea. Traditional items like pancakes, crepes, egg dishes, hard boiled eggs and sweet rolls are great as well as honey baked ham, beef tenderloin and even seasonal vegetables like roasted asparagus are all great ideas for a buffet. For a sweet treat, carrot cake cookies or traditional carrot cake work well.

What makes a good Easter brunch menu?

Brunch is a great opportunity to combine breakfast and lunch items! Plan to provide menu items that range from savory to sweet. This Easter fruit tray is always a welcome addition and don’t forget some juice, coffee and tea for guests.

Pancakes and Crepes

These are always the crowd favorite. Everyone loves loading them up with toppings like fresh berries, powdered sugar, buttermilk syrup or a dollop of whipped cream.

The great thing about them is that they can usually be prepped or made in advance. Then it’s one less thing to worry about on the big day. And who can forget potatoes? A classic, delicious and easy breakfast side that are always gone so fast.

Fruit Breakfasts

For a light, fresh and healthy option, it’s always a good idea to have some sort of fresh fruit dish on the table as well as it is a quick breakfast idea to put together. Berries are a great option to include, as they are usually in season spring through summer.

Refrigerate: 30 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 14 crepes


Crepe Batter

  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter , melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt or table salt
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour , sifted if desired

Crepe Filling

  • 4 ounces cream cheese , softened
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar , or powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup whipped cream

Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 ½ cups blueberries , fresh or frozen
  • cup granulated sugar
  • cup water
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch


Crepe Batter

  • In a blender, blend milk, eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour, and mix until batter is smooth, about 15-20 seconds. Refrigerate batter at least 30 minutes, or overnight.
  • Heat an 8-inch frying pan over medium-low heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray and pour about 1/4 cup batter into the pan, immediately tilting the pan from side to side to form an even circle. Cook about 1-2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Remove from heat and stack until ready to serve. Repeat with remaining batter.

Crepe Filling

  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Mix in the whipped cream until smooth.

Blueberry Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar, water, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Lower the heat and simmer 5 minutes, or until thickened. Mash with a fork to reach desired consistency. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. 
  • Lay a crepe on a flat surface and spread 1 to 2 Tablespoons filling down the center. Then pour the blueberry sauce on top. Fold crepe around filling. Repeat with remaining crepes. Fold crepe and serve.


Make ahead instructions: The batter can be made up to 24 hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator until ready to cook. The filling is best made the same day it is served. The crepes and sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance. 
Storage: For the crepes, add to a zip-top bag or covered container and layer parchment in between each crepe. The crepes and sauce can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Reheating: Heat in microwave or on the skillet over low heat until warm. You can also place on a baking sheet in the oven at 175°F for 5 minutes, or until warm.
