After the Easter bunny has paid his visit and the baskets are full of jelly beans and chocolate, one thing is on everyone’s mind — Easter brunch. Too many sweets can leave you longing for a savory and hearty meal. There are a variety of things that you can make, from golden pancakes drizzled in syrup to many different kinds of egg dishes.
With so many Easter brunch recipe ideas, we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with spring salad recipes and here are some of the highlights:
- Donna Pelech of The Devils Food Advocate shared with us her recipe for Easter Bread. This sweet and buttery bread is filled with dried fruit, citrus zest, and warm spices. Pelech is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
- Mary Cressler of Vindulge Blog shared with us her recipe for sausage and onion frittata complete with a wine pairing (it’s a festive holiday after all). Cressler is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
- The winner this week is Haley Willard, the assistant editor at The Daily Meal. Haley made a breakfast sandwich complete with egg, cheese, and creamy avocados.
All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
