I love putting together food spread for get togethers, especially ones as fun to make as make ahead, easy brunch menus.
It’s important in our family that we keep things simple and somewhat healthy and a make ahead brunch idea was perfect. You know – toddlers and teenagers can occupy a lot of time. In the best possible way, of course.
But holidays alone can be a little overwhelming, and when the little kids are expecting the Easter bunny we’ve got to get hopping. <—- See what I did there???
We made it through Mass with my only breaking a slight sweat and had time to grab a quick photo of the kids.
What makes this an easy brunch menu is that a lot the dishes can be made ahead of time. I also don’t feel one bit guilty about taking some help where I can get it!
Here’s what we served up for Easter Brunch at our household.

I like to have the food ready to go when we get home from church with minimal effort. Most menu ideas were already made and simply needed to be reheated.
I’d rather hang out with our guests and get on the floor and play with kiddos than slave away in the kitchen, wouldn’t you?
If you like this menu, I hope you’ll give it a share on Pinterest!
