Easy Easter Brunch or Breakfast Ideas - so simple and pretty!

For my party, I’m hosting an Easter / Spring themed brunch. This is a gathering of 7 people – my immediate family and my parents – so it’s not a huge crowd. I’m leaving the leaf out of our table this time, and my two oldest daughters can pull up a stool at the island to eat.

The Simple Easter Brunch Menu

This easy brunch menu is a savory delight, and it’s not overly complicated to prepare! It features simple ingredients and quick recipes so that you can enjoy your Easter Sunday.

  • my easy eggs benedict (made even easier for a crowd; I’ll explain below)
  • fresh fruit platter
  • crispy bacon
  • boiled eggs
  • croissants
  • orange juice

If you want to make this meal “brunchier”, you could also throw in a veggie platter, or add a steamed veg like asparagus.

Making Eggs Bendict for a Crowd

To make my easy eggs benedict recipe work for the timing of a larger meal, I pre-toasted my english muffins and then laid them in a casserole dish. I made my easy hollandaise sauce with lemon as per usual, fried some ham and eggs, and then assembled my bennies in the casserole dish. You could also use a sheet pan. I often find timing everything perfectly a little stressful when it comes to large dinners, so any advance prep is helpful!

Then, while I cooked & prepped everything else, I simply popped the dish of eggs benedict into the lower oven in my range on the “warming” setting. They stay warm and they’ll be ready to grab when everything else is ready! Easy. After warming, you can sprinkle these with chives or parsley to make them look fancy.

Simple Easter Table Setting

For the table setting, I layered my favourite aqua grooved plates over some fringed napkins. I also used these simple white textured plates I had on hand.

I thought these sweet little bird’s nests were an adorable plate topper. I’ve been using them everywhere in my Spring decor.

Serving the Food Family-Style

When I host get-togethers, I usually serve the food buffet style on our island. However, this time I’ve decided to serve everything family style in the center of the table. I think it’s fun to have such an interesting variety of foods at everyone’s fingertips. Everyone can easily pick and choose things as they please!
