As someone who loves to host gatherings and whip up delicious meals, I’m excited to share some egg-cellent Easter brunch ideas that are not only mouth watering but also packed with nutritious ingredients to keep everyone feeling their best.

Did you know that Easter eggs symbolise new life and rebirth? It’s a tradition that dates back centuries, with ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Persians and Greeks exchanging decorated eggs during spring festivals. And speaking of eggs, did you know that Australia holds the record for the largest Easter egg hunt? In 2011 over 500,000 eggs were hidden across the country – talk about an egg-stravaganza!

With those eggy facts in mind let’s get cracking on some egg-cellent brunch ideas that will make your Easter celebration egg-stra special:

Egg-citing Frittata

Frittatas are not only versatile but also a great way to use up leftover ingredients in your fridge. Whip up a delicious frittata using eggs, spinach, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese. You can also add some cooked bacon or smoked salmon for an extra burst of flavour. Serve it alongside some crusty sourdough bread or a mixed green salad for a hearty and nutritious brunch option.

Bunny-Approved Avocado Toast

Avocado toast has become a brunch staple and it’s easy to see why – it’s simple, delicious and oh-so-satisfying. Take your avocado toast to the next level by adding some Easter-inspired toppings. Think sliced radishes shaped like Easter eggs or cherry tomatoes arranged in the shape of a bunny and a sprinkle of microgreens for some extra freshness. Not only is it Instagram-worthy, but it’s also packed with healthy fats and nutrients.

Carrot Cake Pancakes

Who says you can’t have dessert for brunch? Put a healthy spin on a classic Easter treat by whipping up some carrot cake pancakes. Simply add grated carrots, cinnamon and a touch of honey to your pancake batter for a festive twist. Top it off with a dollop of Greek yoghurt or a drizzle of cream cheese frosting for a decadent yet nutritious brunch option that’s sure to please everyone’s taste buds.

Easter Egg Salad

Get creative with your salad by incorporating some Easter-themed elements. Colourful boiled eggs, baby spinach, roasted chickpeas and a sprinkle of edible flowers for a vibrant and nutritious dish. Serve it with a side of homemade vinaigrette or a creamy avocado dressing for a refreshing and light Easter brunch option.

Hot Cross Bun French Toast

Turn a classic Easter treat into a decadent brunch dish by making hot cross bun French toast. Simply slice your hot cross buns in half, dip them in a mixture of eggs, milk, cinnamon and cook them on a hot skillet until golden brown.
