Celebrate Easter this year with all of the bright colors and fresh flavors of Spring, from the comfort of your home. Enjoy this cheerful Easter Brunch menu we created with the help of Welcome to the Table.
Course 1: Looking for a bright festive drink to lighten the mood around your house, but don't want too much alcohol? Try a Red Sangria with Strawberries. This recipe is simple and a lighter sangria that pairs seasonal tastes with only wine!
Course 2: Are you looking to break out of your salad rut this spring season? Try a tangy treat loaded with seasonal grapefruit, crunchy edamame, and creamy avocado that will have any room feeling like springtime.
Course 3: Springtime, to me, means asparagus. After a long winter, the dormant energy of the asparagus plant shoots upward, cracking open the soil in search of sunlight. While asparagus is mainly eaten cooked, but it is also very delicious raw. The sky is the limit with asparagus because it can be enjoyed in many ways, from soups, salads, pizzas, even pastas. The recipe below will be sure to highlight the beautiful springtime vegetable and try taking it up a notch with this luscious lemony, tarragon aioli.
Course 4: If you are looking to shine during Easter, this Spinach, Ham, and Gruyere Strata will make sure it happens. Egg strata always makes a great addition to any brunch spread, with pieces of bread in the mix, it's a heartier version of a frittata and will leave you wanting more!
Course 5: Is it even Easter if there is no rhubarb? This beautiful plant is the perfect harbinger of Spring and is sure to close out your Easter Brunch with a bang!
