8 Healthy & Easy Easter Brunch Recipes


Easter Sunday is a special day to sit down to a delicious home-cooked meal with family or friends. But we all know how busy that morning can get. That’s why we’ve put together a collection of our top simple and healthy Easter brunch recipes to make the holiday great.

On Easter, we love to fill our tables with fresh recipes that represent spring and provide balanced nutrition and plenty of options. From easy homemade sausages and healthy deviled eggs to the perfect Easter quiche and the best brunch coffee cake, here is an Easter brunch menu worthy of your special gathering with options for everyone, including vegetarian Easter recipes, gluten-free Easter recipes, and nut-free Easter recipes.

Raspberry Lemon Coffee Cake

This gluten-free Easter coffee cake is perfectly spiced and always a hit. It’s naturally sweetened with fresh raspberries and honey and has just the right amount of lemon. This cake bakes fast, so it’s easy to put together in the morning, or you could completely check it off your list by making it the night before. Top slices with dollops of the 3-ingredient citrus sour cream sauce and serve with hot cups of coffee or tea to ring in Easter morning.

Healthy Deviled Eggs

By swapping creamy Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise, deviled eggs get a delightful tang that livens up the classic version. These brunch-favorite lighter deviled eggs will disappear fast, and since it only takes five basic ingredients to make them, consider whipping up a double batch.

Blackberry Sage Breakfast Sausage

If you’ve never made homemade breakfast sausages, we encourage you to taste the difference. Homemade sausage patties are one of the simplest recipes to make and adds that special impressive touch that brunch is all about. By flavoring pork sausage with fresh blackberries and a few fresh or dried herbs, you get the perfect mix of savory, sweet and salty tastes.

Mixed Berry Baked Oatmeal

This make-ahead oatmeal, which is baked in a 9×9-inch dish, is a wonderful Easter brunch recipe because it only takes 15 minutes to prep. Make it quickly in the morning or even the night before, then pop it in the oven while the kiddos are searching for Easter eggs. Infused with maple syrup, mashed banana, and frozen berries, it will be a warm and delicious addition to your brunch menu. Serve with Greek yogurt or whipped cream.

Crispy Garlic Ranch Roasted Potatoes

“Please pass the potatoes,” is one phrase you’ll hear over and over when you serve these so-tasty taters. We say it just can’t be brunch without one of the very best Easter potato recipes out there. Baby red potatoes get tossed with a mix of dried herbs and then crisped to perfection on a baking sheet. Delicious and done!

This bright dish is full of nutritious ingredients and will round out your brunch menu. Made with fresh kale, tender apples, and sweet butternut squash nestled among ground turkey, chicken, or pork. Serve it as is, or top with eggs cooked to order (fried, over-easy, soft-boiled, or scrambled).

Greek Veggie Pasta Salad

We love a veggie-pasta combo for any meal, and especially brunch. Crisp bell peppers and cucumbers, juicy tomatoes, briny olives, and tender pasta get tossed in a simple yogurt-lemon dressing that can all be prepped ahead and quickly assembled right before you ring the dinner bell.
