10 tips and Easter brunch ideas with over 25 recipes – Easter pastries, Easter spreads and co.

Sitting together comfortably for a long time and having a delicious snack – a little breakfast, a little lunch and a lot of finger food – that’s how we imagine the perfect Easter brunch. So that you don’t spend hours in the kitchen stressed out, we have put together our best tips and many simple recipes here.

How does brunch become Easter brunch? Our best ideas for a stress-free Easter!

What is the difference between a regular brunch and an Easter brunch? In our opinion there doesn’t have to be one! Especially not if it turns into stress. Simply combine your favorite brunch recipes and then choose one or two Easter ideas from our list – for example our Easter spreads or the American Easter egg. Below we have also linked some nice table decoration ideas for you!

Hot or cold dishes for Easter brunch?

We love the combination of hot and cold dishes for breakfast or brunch. Classics like scrambled eggs are quick to make. Other dishes – such as our warm croissant casserole – can be easily prepared the day before and then just have to be put in the oven.

Sweet or savory dishes for Easter brunch?

Here at Kreativfieber we are of course Team Sweet – after all, there is a new sweet recipe idea every Sunday. Of course, hearty dishes are a must at brunch. You can find a few favorites here in the article and we also collect them on our Pinterest boards, which we would be happy to link to the hearty recipes for you!

Which Easter brunch ideas can be easily prepared the day before?

Admittedly, we would prefer to just prepare EVERYTHING the day before – because there is always enough to do on the day itself. That’s why we’ve included lots of recipes here that you can prepare the day before, such as lots of Easter pastries, the mini desserts, the croissant casserole (our favorite breakfast tip!) and also the spreads. The Easter spreads allow for even more lead time!

Our tips – the best Easter brunch ideas with delicious recipes

Now it starts – here you will find our best Easter brunch ideas with lots of recipes to try out!

Tip 1 – Spreads for Easter brunch – perfect to prepare and also nice as a small gift from the kitchen

Let’s start with the Easter spreads! In many cases you can prepare these a week before brunch and if you make two or three glasses at the same time you will also have a nice Easter souvenir to give as a gift! You can find suitable recipes here

Tip 2 – Bake Easter bunnies for Easter brunch

Bake DIY Easter souvenirs: curd bunnies

A real classic and simply super delicious: These fluffy Easter bunnies made from quark oil dough are super delicious with jam and easy to bake with a bunny cookie cutter. If you don’t have any, we also have a recipe for quark balls for you on the blog (but these are fried in oil instead of in the oven). The very simple bunny biscuits made from cookie cutter dough also look beautiful as decoration and we use them as a basis for many recipes. Here you can find them with a simple eggnog filling. Here you will find a large set of Easter cookie cutters (affiliate link) and here a set with 5 different bunny sizes (affiliate link) that you can use for the curd bunnies.

Tip 3 – simply prepare the sweet croissant casserole for Easter brunch the day before

Homemade croissant casserole with berries - breakfast or brunch recipe Baked apple croissant casserole with speculoos - Advent brunch

One of our most popular brunch recipes is a delicious croissant casserole – this can be perfectly prepared the day before, as it works best if the croissants can sit in the fridge overnight. On the day itself, you just have to put the casserole briefly in the oven. We have already tried many variations of it and you can find the croissant casserole with berries and also a version with speculoos on the blog. This is of course more suitable for autumn, but this will give you an idea of ​​how you can play with the ingredients. For Easter I would probably make the berry version – if you want to decorate the recipe for Easter, you can add marzipan carrots (affiliate link) or Easter eggs (affiliate link) after baking.

Tip 4 – bake small rolls for Easter brunch – you can try a lot this way

Do you even need rolls for brunch? Since brunch combines breakfast and lunch, I would always make rolls with it. A great tip, however, is little To use rolls. This means you won’t be full after just one roll and you have the opportunity to try many different spreads. One of my favorite recipes are these simple curd rolls. The dough doesn’t have to rise and they are made super quickly! Maike also has a recipe for these sweet hedgehog rolls that are particularly popular with children.
