Easter Sunday is a fabulous day of feasting. While many families will be starting their Easter with a long, lazy Easter brunch, that’s not always feasible. If you’ve got young kids who are begging to start the Easter egg hunt right this minute, and have already got chocolate-covered faces as they dug into their Easter basket as soon as they woke up, or whether you’re really behind on making Easter dinner and need to focus on cooking that ham rather than creating a fancy Easter brunch, these quick and delicious egg breakfasts are your Easter morning savior.
Of course Easter breakfast should focus on eggs: You’ll be eating them in chocolate format for the rest of the day, and now’s the time to eat the real thing. Eggs are the perfect base for a simple, fuss-free breakfast that is packed full of flavor, and looks like you’ve put much more effort into preparing than you really have.
It’s the time of year that spring produce is just beginning to appear in the grocery stores and at the farmers markets. Make the most of it and dress up your regular scrambled or fried eggs with your favorite seasonal vegetables. Celebrate these bright veggies by cooking delicate spears of asparagus with soft-boiled eggs, grating zucchinis to turn them into a spring hash, and sprinkling the last of the season’s fennel leaves on your eggs benedict.
Whether you have just two minutes or an extravagant 30 minutes to spare on Easter morning, this selection of our favorite fast egg breakfasts will enable you to get a sufficiently tasty and celebratory breakfast on the table with no stress and no time.
