20 Last-Minute Easter Brunch Recipes You Can Make in 30 Minutes or Less

So, it’s the day before (or day of, we won’t judge), and you’re hosting an Easter brunch. You have no time to pull a full Martha Stewart like you usually do. Have no fear. We got you covered with foolproof last-minute Easter brunch recipes you can make in 30 minutes or less. And the best part? None of these dishes look rushed or last minute, so your friends and family will think you’ve been slaving away since Palm Sunday, when really you started cooking 20 minutes ago…

1. Kale + Mushroom Frittata: You can’t go wrong with a frittata. This recipe is so quick to whip up, you can even use the eggs from the Easter egg hunt and have this dish ready before anyone says they’re hungry. (via The Sweet Edge)

2. Ham + Egg Cups: We’re kind of obsessed with these bites. And the best part is they only have *two* ingredients. It’s easy enough to add sautéed veggies in the bottom or sprinkle on fresh herbs if you like, and they only take 15 minutes to make. (via Mom Loves Baking)

3. Ham + Cheese Croissants With Honey Mustard Glaze: Seven minutes is all it takes to throw together these epic buttery croissant sandwiches. Since there are so few ingredients, opt for quality ham and cheese to get the best flavor or give it an Italian twist with prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto. (via Kitchen Sanctuary)

4. Cheesy Baked Egg and Bacon Boats: If you’re traveling somewhere this Easter, these egg boats are a great portable option. Mix and match the fillings according to preference or just use the ingredients you have on hand. (via Just a Taste)

5. Breakfast Crepes With Smoked Salmon: If you want to show your family that you’re a well-rounded adult, make them fancy (and nutritious) crepes. These whole wheat crepes have a nutty flavor that stands up well to the smoked salmon, capers, and red onion. Finish them off with scrambled eggs, and no one will believe that this meal took you just 15 minutes. (via The Fit Blog)

6. Sheet Pan Eggs: This dish will take you no time (if you make it ahead) and just 25 minutes if you do it day of. The best part, most of that time is spent baking, which frees you up to prep something else or enjoy a well deserved mimosa. (via Brit + Co)

7. Green Spring Toasts: Easter brunch is more than just sweet pastries and breakfast foods. Try these springy toasts for a quick savory lunch option. (via Matters of the Belly)

8. Fruit and Cream Cheese Breakfast Pastries: Store-bought puff pastry is a freezer staple that can help you out in a multitude of situations, even if you buy it as a backup plan for Easter morning. Any fruit flavor will work. Make a few different versions to please the whole crowd. (via Just a Taste)

9. Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins With Streusel: It’s just not brunch without a big basket of blueberry muffins. With the egg hunt on your mind, you might be tempted to stop and buy ready-made muffins, but with a bake time clocking in at only 16 minutes, there’s really no reason. Everyone will enjoy these before the big meal; make sure there are plenty to go around. (via Just a Taste)

10. Orange and Fennel Salad: The best way to save time while making a dish is to skip the oven altogether — that’s where salad comes in. The most difficult part of this beautiful salad is making the citrus-dill vinaigrette. If you’d call whisking “difficult,” that is. (via The Worktop)

11. Loaded Potato Waffles: Dust off that waffle maker. If you already have leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge, this dish takes only 15 minutes to come together. The kids *and* adults will love this one. (via My Life Cookbook)

12. Cinnamon Sugar Drop Biscuits: Think of these drop biscuits as a cross between snickerdoodles and your family’s favorite biscuit recipe. (via Spicy Southern Kitchen)

13. Asparagus Pancetta Puff Pastry Bundle: Nothing says spring like asparagus and ham. This savory, sweet, and cheesy combination makes for the perfect Easter finger food and takes about only 15 minutes to make. (via Completely Delicious)

14. Paleo Ground Turkey Hash With Squash and Peppers: Everyone has that friend or family member who always seems to be on a diet. This particular recipe fits the bill for Whole30, gluten-free, and Paleo diets, and yet it’s full of flavor. What more could they want? This plate takes about 10 minutes to make. (via Our Salty Kitchen)

15. Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins: These fluffy and flavorful muffins will also make your kitchen smell amazing, and it takes less than 30 minutes to make. (via Finding Beautiful Truth)

16. Candied Bacon: What’s brunch without bacon? You’ll never guess what makes this bacon delicious. The hardest part is waiting 25 minutes to taste it. (via Brit + Co)

17. Muffin Tin Omelets With Prosciutto, Feta, and Spinach: The muffin tin makes portioning for a crowd easy-peasy. (via Yummy Addiction)

18. Prosciutto, Egg, and Avocado Breakfast Board: It only takes a couple of minutes to fry up some eggs and prosciutto, which gives you time to whip up your own avocado mash (or you can even buy it already made). You also save even more time with this DIY food setup, because you don’t have to plate. (via Bazaar Lazarr)

19. Sweet Potato Toast With Avocado, Cucumber, Smoked Salmon, and Poached Egg: Add more spring color to your avocado toast with sweet potato toast. Dress up your sweet potato toast however you like; we love the idea of this avocado, lox, cucumber, poached egg, and dill combo. (via Downshiftology)

20. Cherry Almond Power Bars: These no-bake power bars are perfect for any sweet tooth or health nut (they’re also gluten free). (via Camille Styles)
