Today, we are sharing some super easy & kid-friendly Easter brunch recipes. Nothing makes Easter morning like a good home-cooked Easter brunch!
Overnight Easter Egg Bake
This is an easy, delicious recipe you can make the night before and just pop in the oven Easter morning.
1 lb of ground sweet or hot Italian sausage (I do sweet so the kids eat it, but it’s also great with hot sausage!)
1 bag of shredded cheddar cheese, about 2 cups
2 cups of shredded hash browns (they come frozen)
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
Other veggies can be added too: broccoli, mushrooms, red peppers, etc
About 1 cup of chopped tomatoes
1 dozen eggs
2 cups of milk
Sprinkle of black pepper, oregano and basil
Night before Easter: In a skillet, cook the sausage and chopped onions. Once cooked through, drain the liquid. In a bowl whisk the eggs, milk, 1 cup of shredded cheese, black pepper, basil & oregano.
Spray a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray. Layer: hash browns (do not thaw), the sausage/ onion mix, 1 cup of shredded cheese & veggies. Pour the egg mix on top. Cover and refrigerate.
Easter morning: Preheat oven to 375F. Bake for 1 hour or until heated through.
Easter Bunny Tail Cake
For a fun family friendly Easter dessert, try the Easter Bunny Tail cake!
1 cake mix of choice
Frosting flavor of choice
With preferred flavor of cake mix, make a 9 inch cake & 12 cupcakes. Let cool out of pan. Put a quick spreading of icing down on the round cake. Unwrap a cupcake for the tail. Spread icing around the whole cupcake and dip in sprinkles. Put in the middle of the cake. Take two cupcakes & unwrap for the feet. Stick them on cake. Frost the whole cake, including the feet, to look like a bunny. To make the paws, put frosting on the bottom of a marshmallow and dip in sprinkles then put on the cake. Repeat to make bunny paws. My kids loved making this super easy Easter cake, completely from the boxed mix & all!
