Entertaining Ideas for Easter Brunch/Luncheon
I am new to CH and would love some suggestions on hosting an easy to execute Easter Brunch/Luncheon.
I would love menu ideas and your favorite spring recipes to help me decide between serving Brunch or Lunch or maybe a combination of the two. I plan to have guests arrive around 12 noon to 1 pm. I would like to keep the menu delicious but simple and a variety of hot and cold foods.
I am opened to any suggestions you may have!
Ham is the Easter tradition in my family, so I second the idea of a ham. Serve it with biscuits and / or rolls - Hawaiian rolls are delicious with ham - and mustard and chutney.
crudite, green salad, and/or tomato and cucumber salad
hash browns or roasted potatoes/sweet potatoes
muffins and/or banana bread
mac and cheese
Asparagus is always welcome at Eastertime. Blanched and chilled ahead, you can do all sorts of things with it. I like to sear blanched asparagus on a dry griddle, then top it with lemon zest and juice, kosher salt, chipotle powder, and chunks of soft goat cheese.
Quiche is nice - a leek/gruyere one would be good.
A yeasted coffeecake if you are a baker.
A fresh fruit salad is always tasty.
A simple lemon or chocolate tart.
The above are random ideas, not necessarily to be served together!
