best of brunch 2013

Have plans for a big Easter brunch this Sunday? I’ve gotcha covered!

Here are some of my favorite brunch items to help you feed a bunch of hungry mouths (and help lure them away from all of that candy)!

Spinach Pie

Spinach Pie
Using store bought phyllo dough makes this super quick and simple, and frozen spinach makes it super affordable. This impressive pie is as delicious as it is pretty!

Melon, Mint & Feta Salad

Melon, Mint & Feta Salad
This salad has spring written all over it! It’s super fresh and breezy, with a little bit of salty feta for contrast. C’est magnifique!

Morning Glory Muffins

Morning Glory Muffins
With all of that candy around, you may need help sneaking in a few extra fruits and vegetables. These amazingly sweet and delicious muffins have tons of goodness from shredded carrot, applesauce, walnuts, and raisins. They’re fiber-licious AND delicious!

Spinach & Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Spinach & Mushroom Crustless Quiche
It’s a classic crowd pleaser. Eggy enough to be for breakfast, hearty enough to be for lunch… perfect for BRUNCH!

Lemon Blueberry Scones

Lemon Blueberry Scones
Maybe you just want to have some little goodies set out to serve along with coffee or tea. These delicious scones are not too sweet, but decadent enough to feel like a treat!

Salsa Poached Eggs

Salsa Poached Eggs
If you’re looking for something unique, this is it. These eggs are super easy to prepare and have so much more personality than regular fried eggs. Serve these gems over a bowl of grits.

Sweet Potato Grits

Sweet Potato Grits
Speaking of grits… This is my favorite grits upgrade. Sweet potatoes make the grits ultra creamy and give them a nutritional boost!

Honey Ginger Broiled Grapefruit

Honey Ginger Broiled Grapefruit
This is one of those recipes that seems all fancy-pants, but is actually super simple. Broiling grapefruit deepens their flavor and ginger adds a little zing!

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
This one is an oldy but a goody (look how bad my photos were back then!). Instead of homefries, make these insanely good roasted potatoes to go along with your eggs and bacon.

Basic Biscuits

Basic Biscuits
In the south, it isn’t breakfast (or brunch) without biscuits. This is my favorite recipe for tall, fluffy biscuits.

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal
This “oatmeal casserole” of sorts is perfect for feeding a crowd. One recipe will serve about 6-8, but it can easily be doubled to feed more!

Where’s the ham?! OMG, I don’t have an Easter ham recipe… I guess I better get on that!
