Enjoy Easter morning with a low-stress, make-ahead buffet
Between egg hunts and baskets and getting your family dressed up and off to church, there’s a lot of excitement on Easter morning. It’s hard for everyone to sit still long enough to enjoy a proper at-the-table meal.
So here’s the solution: an informal Easter brunch where everything can be made ahead and served at room temperature (or gently reheated). Just set out the food buffet-style and let people come and go as they please.
If you have a huge crowd, you can easily double or triple the dishes in this menu. And because Easter very often involves lots of kids, most of the recipes can be tweaked to make them more appealing to children.
