51 Delicious Easter Brunch Recipes to Make This Year
Blueberry and Mascarpone-Stuffed French Toast Casserole
This year, turn your Easter bread baguette into something a little more decadent: stuffed French toast! Filled with blueberries and ultra-creamy mascarpone cheese, this is hands down one of our best Easter brunch casserole recipes yet. Pure maple syrup takes each slice over the top.
Spiced Roasted Fruit
Serve up a build-your-own breakfast parfait station starring juicy roasted fruit. Toss your favorite fresh fruit (we used grapes, berries, and pears) with a sweet brown sugar and cardamom glaze. A quick cook in a hot oven yields syrupy fruit that's best served with creamy yogurt and homemade granola.

A sizzling breakfast skillet is one of our go-to Easter brunch ideas. This protein-packed take is loaded with chopped ham, eggs, and shredded Gruyere cheese. Just before serving, top with fresh basil and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
Test Kitchen Tip: Serving a crowd for Easter breakfast? Double the recipe and cook it in a 12-inch skillet instead.
