The two best times for brunch are Sundays and holidays. When those two occasions overlap every year for Easter, it calls for a brunch celebration of epic proportions. It’s also one of the only excuses we get to eat Peeps for breakfast and use healthy foods like eggs and carrots for decoration. 

Thanks to the pandemic, Easter 2021 will likely be low-key for most, but that doesn’t mean your brunch game has to be! While traditional Easter breakfasts usually include ham-based dishes and Easter bread, the past year has been anything but traditional. This is the perfect opportunity to step up your brunch repertoire by learning new, fun dishes or put a modern twist on classic favorites.

In this post, we’re sharing a roundup of our favorite Easter brunch ideas that are so delicious you’ll want to do it again next year.
