Ideas for Easter Brunch?

I'm having an Easter Brunch for my family. There will be about 18 people. Does anyone have some good menu ideas for this? I know it's a bit late for planning but I need something that can be kept warm and still taste good. I plan to have cold fruit, like cantaloupe and grapes.

These recipes come from my mom, who just happens to be the best cook in the world! They are the ones she makes most often when we all get together for brunch. The first recipe (for the strata) is my favorite. And, it can be put together the day before so you have more time to spend with your guests. Hope you enjoy!

Mom's Easy Breakfast Strata

This strata is really easy to make. I've even made it and gotten compliments (quite a feat!). It can be put it together the day before; then just remove from the refrigerator and bake. Ham or bacon can be substituted for the sausage.


Makes 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour 10 Minutes
Ready in: 10 Hours

1 pound pork sausage
6 slices bread, cubed
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground dry mustard

Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside. Layer bread cubes, sausage, and Cheddar cheese in a lightly greased 7" x 11" baking dish. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, salt, and mustard. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cube mixture. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Makes 12 servings

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour

1 (32-ounce) package frozen hash brown potatoes
8 ounces cooked, diced ham
2 (10.75-ounce) cans condensed cream of potato soup
1 (16-ounce) container sour cream
2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9" x 13" baking dish. In a large bowl, mix hash browns, ham, cream of potato soup, sour cream and Cheddar cheese. Spread evenly into prepared dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until bubbly and lightly brown. Serve immediately.

You could buy the small jelly beans or M & M's fill the jars up with them. Make a bunny out of pompons (big white one for the head, small black ones for the eyes and half of a white pipe cleaners, a black triangular felt nose, small black felt mouth) all hot glued together and put on the lid.


Paint the lid a nice pastel pink or green color and then glue everything on it. If you like you could print a bunny picture off of your computer then just glue some of that plastic easter grass and print of bunny on the lid and a piece ribbon around the lid.

How about a ham- you can bake and serve at room temp. A cheesy potatoe casserole, salad w/cranberries and pears, maybe a quiche or the strata recipe above and the fruit that you mentioned is a good idea.
Have fun!
