Creative dishes for a great Easter brunch menu

easter-brunch

There is nothing more scrumptious to wake up to on Easter morning that a festive spread of brunch favorites – and it’s not all about ham anymore.

CBC News came up with an interesting and modern take on a traditional brunch menu, sweets and all, for your next holiday gathering. Using some of the skills you learned in your culinary arts program with these creative recipes could wow your guests this Easter:

A twist on bacon and eggs
Seriously, who doesn’t love pizza? Why not try making a bacon and egg pizza that the entire family will enjoy? With egg yolks and cheddar cheese as your “pizza sauce,” bacon as the protein and delicious homemade dough, this is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.

Savory doughnuts
Wanna test out your baking & pastry arts skills? Try making maple bacon doughnuts. With savory and sweet flavors, these are the perfect addition for meat-lovers and people with a sweet tooth.

Keep it healthy
Of course, not everyone at your Easter brunch is going to be wild about bacon, so it’s important to have healthy staples nearby. Yogurt parfaits are easy and nutritious alternatives to the typical hearty fare that graces tables during Easter.
