Easter is the perfect time to celebrate with breakfast, brunch or even a great dinner. For whenever you dine, I’m sharing my favorite Easter recipes with you!
Vanilla scones with orange glaze – a recipe inspired by those tasty little petite scones that Starbucks used to carry (maybe they still do, but I haven’t seen them in quite some time!), but made even better with an orange glaze that perfectly compliments the texture of the scone. Plus, they’re bite-sized so you don’t have to feel guilty having more than one.
Fluffy buttermilk bunny pancakes – a classic pancake recipe that is a great one to make with the kids. Just make a few different sized circles, gather some toppings and you’ll have a fluffy bunny-shaped pancake in no time.
Carrot cake coffee cake – does it sound like the start to a bad joke if I say ‘what do you get when you combine carrot cake and coffee cake?’ – well, all jokes aside, you get this amazing recipe that is actually one part carrot cake, one part cheese cake and one part crumb topping. Is there anything better!?
Glazed carrots – any dish that can be made in the slow cooker (especially on a holiday) is a winner in my book. This glazed carrot recipe is only 5 ingredients and the perfect combination of salty and sweet.
Cinnamon sugar pecan challah Bread – a bread pretty enough to be a centerpiece, but tasty enough to eat right away! This recipe will yield you a light an airy bread with a perfectly crunchy exterior. Plus, you get to practice your braiding skills, which is always fun!
Easy biscuits – this biscuit recipe only requires 5 ingredients and is a great base to have some fun with at brunch. Simply enjoy these biscuits with butter or top with jam or maybe even an egg. The options are endless!
Lemon loaf with frosting – another recipe that is a Starbucks copycat and OMG is it good!? Bonus points because it’s gluten free. Lemon is the perfect flavor to welcome in Spring and this loaf will look great on any Easter spread.
Garlic roasted leg of lamb – my family has a deep history of cooking lamb for special occasions, especially Orthodox Easter, so this recipe is always part of our Easter celebrations.
Miso deviled eggs – a fun twist on a traditional recipe, these deviled eggs are brought to life by adding miso into the yolk mixture. Plus, we all know how many extra eggs you might have lying around during Easter-time!
Egg salad sandwich with bacon – Another great recipe to use up some of those hard-boiled eggs from Easter. If you’re looking to up your egg salad game, you know adding bacon is a great option! You can have this sandwich ready in 5 minutes flat – perfect for a super simple lunch.
Ham and brie crostini – a fun way to enjoy ham on your Easter Sunday! These fancy toasts are the perfect bite-size food to have on your brunch table.
Slow cooker cinnamon rolls – if you’re short on time and oven space, enter the trusty slow cooker. This recipe for cinnamon rolls from scratch is made even easier with the help of the slow and low heat in your slow cooker. That helps the yeast to activate and your dough to rise, so no long wait times!
Classic egg salad – if you’re not looking to add bacon, this classic recipe will do the trick. Enjoy it on a sandwich or simply on a cracker – it makes a great dip of sorts! No muss, no fuss, just a good old classic!
Whole wheat dinner rolls – if you’re still on the hunt for a bread option at your Easter meal, these dinner rolls are a great choice. They’re made in a slow cooker, so you can free up your oven space and free up some of your time spent in the kitchen.
Mini carrot cheddar cheese balls – a great appetizer option that is a great 5 ingredient recipe. With all of the sweetness around during Easter, this savory dish is a welcome reprieve. Plus, I’ll bet you have carrots on hand for the Easter bunny after all!
Baked lemon glazed donuts – who doesn’t love a donut!? Well, this one is even better than what you’d expect because it’s baked to make it slightly more healthy than a standard fried donut. And you still get to enjoy all of the delicious lemony Springtime flavors – yum!
