Classic Easter Brunch Recipes
Easter is one of the few holidays where brunch is the focal meal. These classic brunch recipes are very tasty and could quite possibly become part of your family’s Easter tradition moving forward!
Hatching Chick Deviled Eggs
How cute are these Hatching Chick Deviled Eggs from She Knows?
These are sure to be a favorite with kids and adults alike. These can be made in advance, making them both convenient and cute. You may need to make a few batches, just to be safe.
Coconut Crusted French Toast
This Coconut Crusted French Toast recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod is as beautiful as it is delicious. With just 7 ingredients, it also deserves an honorable mention for ease. We love recipes that make us look like we are culinary geniuses.
Carrot Cake Scones
Thank you Dishing Out Health, for giving us a Carrot Cake Scone recipe without the added guilt and bloating. These scones are made with almond flour, sweetened with maple syrup, and are easy to store. (Assuming you will have leftovers.)
Puff Pastry Baked Eggs
Few things are as compatible as brunch and eggs. And you might be surprised at how little effort is needed to upgrade some scrambled eggs into these Puff Pastry Baked Eggs from Life as a Strawberry. And the option to bypass the lengthy narrative to head straight to the recipe has us singing praises of this blog.
Asparagus & Mushroom Vegan Quiche
Can we just debunk the myth that vegans and brunch don’t go together once and for all?
And it is easily customizable if asparagus and mushrooms aren’t your things.

Keto Dutch Baby with Blackberry Crumble
Give your keto guests more to choose from than eggs with this Keto Dutch Baby with Blackberry Crumble from Clean Keto Lifestyle. Any combination of almond flour, cream cheese, and blackberries is a win to me.
Just be sure to have your zero-calorie sweeteners on hand. You will need both a granular and brown sugar option.
Root Vegetable Pancakes
These lovely Root Vegetable Pancakes from From My Bowl are also vegan, but you can also easily replace the flax mixture with egg and the cashew cream with sour cream if that’s what you have in your pantry.
Gluten-Free Eggs Benedict Casserole
Brunch is not complete without a good eggs benedict. And this Gluten-Free Eggs Benedict Casserole from Our Salty Kitchen puts a glorious spin on the traditional meal.
This hash is packed with flavor and heartiness. And it is gluten-free! While it gets major kudos for being a one-pot (or one skillet) meal, it doesn’t reheat well.
But who has leftover eggs benedict anyway?
Easter Brunch Recipes: Staff Favorites
Below are some tried and true brunch favorites that will not disappoint.
Garden Veggie Quiche
This Garden Veggie Quiche is the go-to brunch recipe for our ChatterSource Managing Editor, Christine Devereaux Evangelista.

Easter brunch in his house is just not complete without these Strawberry Banana Nutella Crepes. His fruit of choice is a combination of strawberries and bananas, but the options are endless!
Brown Sugar Walnut Baked Brie
Macie Hartsuiker, a ChatterSource Founder, welcomes the holidays with baked brie.
The epitome of classiness, this Walnut Brown Sugar Brie recipe from Lemon Tree Dwelling, is quick to pull together and doesn’t contain the traditional puff pastry shell, making it more inclusive for your gluten-free guests.
Pair with some crackers, rolls or fruit, and you have a spread sure to please.
Easy Smoked Salmon Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
The Founder of ChatterSource, Adam Hartsuiker, can’t turn down a good salmon dish like these Salmon Cucumber Tea Sandwiches from Joyful Healthy Eats. In terms of convenience, this recipe ranks number one. And with just a handful of ingredients, there is really no excuse to leave this goodie off your table.
Our Project Manager, Kenzie Hart, celebrates Easter with these adorable chick rolls, complete with a nest.
And while we don’t have her family recipe, here is a good substitute from The Stay at Home Chef that will work as well. Just pop an almond in for a beak before you bake it and throw some peppercorns in for eyes.
To get those adorable lashes, use an edible marker, like this one.
Vegan Zucchini Breakfast Strata
Erin Squire, ChatterSource’s Assistant Editor, swears by this Vegan Zucchini Breakfast Strata from Holy Cow Vegan.
Although it is vegan, her meat-eating friends enjoy the dish as well. And the best part? This dish is easy to make ahead the day before, giving you more time to enjoy your company.
My Passover Cake - Crackle Chocolate Cardamom Meringue Cake
My family celebrates Passover rather than Easter, but anytime is a good time to serve this Crackle Chocolate Cardamom Meringue Cake from A Cozy Kitchen.
We love it for Passover because it is unleavened, or free from rising flour. But you will love it because it is chocolatey, grain-free goodness.
Ps. The secret is in the cardamom, so don’t skip it!
Now that you know our favorites be sure to share your favorite recipes at #ChatterSourceCooking.
May your day be full of good company and scrumptious goodies.
