What does Easter brunch look like at Baking My Way?
Key word: Keep it simple! You don’t want to be running around Easter morning like a crazy person trying to hammer out the last of your poached eggs for Eggs Benedict.
Don’t. Do. It.
The best part about brunch is being able to sleep in a little later and laugh it up midday with your guests. Also, the allowed alcohol before 12 pm helps…
Make dishes that you can prepare the day before and pop in the oven right before your guests arrive. It’s the perfect plan and they will think you were up at 6 am rolling out the yeast dough for your cinnamon rolls. They don’t need to know that you did that Saturday afternoon…
Here’s what Easter brunch looked like in Germany…
The line up:
-Cream Cheese and Tomato Crostinis- with a sprinkle of fresh basil!
-Seasonal Fruit on a Stick
-Homemade Cinnamon Buns
-Eggs Wrapped in Bacon (not pictured)- baked in a cupcake pan!
-Mimosa Bar (must have)
This brunch was made for 5 people and was the perfect amount of food! I tend to over-do things. It runs through my American blood. My mother always told me, “The worst thing that can happen when you’re hosting is to run out of food.”
Got it Mom, not going to happen to me! This mantra on hosting will stay with me forever… So plan a bit ahead of time so you don’t run out of food.
With these dishes, you will be sure to please all your guests! It’s the perfect mix between breakfast and lunch and the cinnamon rolls are melt-in-your-mouth-to-die-for!
Need a do-over? Don’t wait to Easter next year, just invite some friends over for a fun Sunday brunch. If you must, lure them with Champagne…
