Easter Breakfasts That Skip the Sugar Rush
Save that fun for later in the day.
Let's be honest: You'll likely cross paths with a chocolate bunny or two this Sunday. And while we fully support you hitting up your kid's (or your niece's or nephew's) Easter basket when no one is looking, you're a grown-up! At least save the sugar high for after Easter dinner. Here's how.
While you're busy picking out your Sunday best, let this Bacon Lattice Breakfast Pie bake away in the oven. It's as creamy and delicious as a classic quiche, but it has a super simple preparation and calls for only five ingredients. Plus, who can resist that crispy bacon lattice topping?
Ellie Krieger's 5-star Breakfast Burrito is another quick and easy breakfast option. Perhaps the best thing about this recipe, though, is that you can customize it to fit your needs. Load your burrito with all the fillings your tortilla can hold — think black beans, avocado, tomato and sour cream. But if you've got a picky kid at the table, let her choose her favorites.
Your family put you in charge of hosting Easter brunch this year? Serve lasagna — and not because we think it's a solid way to get out of hosting again next year. Sausage Gravy Breakfast Lasagna features layers of creamy sausage gravy, spinach, three cheeses and noodles. And if you think it looks like a lot of work, don't fret: Assemble it the night before, let it rest in the fridge, then bake about an hour before your guests will arrive.
Egg biscuits are always a welcome breakfast item, but they're not typically something you can easily make for a crowd. Lucky for you, we're changing that with this Biscuit Egg-in-a-Hole recipe. Now you can turn out six cheesy egg sandwiches without much effort at all — and no one will be stuck waiting while the rest of the family eats. All the sandwiches cook at the same time, thanks to your trusty sheet pan.
Healthy Carrot Muffins are another great make-ahead option for your holiday morning. Grated carrots give them an added boost of nutrition (you know, to balance out all those jelly beans to come), and crushed pineapple lends natural sweetness. Dare we say they've got a little something for every-bunny?
