Are you looking for some easy Easter recipes? These are all simple to put together, family friendly and taste absolutely delicious. Includes Easter brunch recipe ideas, side dishes and salads for Easter dinner and, obviously, desserts fit for the Easter bunny!
I recently had a discussion with my husband about the easter bunny. He thinks it doesn’t make sense to have a bunny bring eggs on Easter. My rational guy 😉
So I told him to me it’s all about the magic and the excitement and the impossible. What about you? Do you think the Easter bunny is weird? What do YOU like most about Easter?
Obviously my biggest thing around Easter… is the food!
I’m sending you a little list of my all-time favorite Easter recipes from the Savory Nothings archives, to get you excited for tomorrow (and help you put together a last-minute plan if you… uhm, slacked on the organization front 😅)
This Strawberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast is one of my absolutely favorite brunch recipes. I’ve been making it for almost a decade now! The crunchy cinnamon sugar coating is just the best thing ever ❤
If you’re looking for a savory dish, this is one of the best ways to make egg salad – at least in my opinion. I LOVE avocado and egg together!
A delicious and healthy addition to your Easter brunch, this Greek Yogurt Fruit Salad is SO easy to make and tastes all dreamy and lemon-y.
This Crockpot French Toast recipe has been so popular on Savory Nothings leading up to Easter! You won’t be able to stop eating this… So good!
The BEST way to make a classic blueberry muffin with lots of streusel. It’s more cake than breakfast, really. But since we’re talking Easter brunch… 😉
And these healthy Carrot muffins are for when you feel like your brunch doesn’t need individually portioned cakes. Ha! I make these all the time for my kids and they LOVE them, even though there’s no refined sugar in them.
This Lemon Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake is for when you’re really desperate. Because it’s made with cake mix. It’s also the only cake mix recipe I’ll ever use, and only when I’m really in need of a very quick fix. It tastes sinfully delicious and is ridiculously easy to make.
My preschooler’s favorite smoothie recipe! Whenever we’re out of frozen strawberries, she tells me to put them on the grocery list so we can make strawberry smoothies again 😂
My new favorite potatoes to roast! Roasted Fingerling Potatoes get so crispy and look very pretty for your Easter dinner table.
I mean… Roasted baby potatoes are a classic! It’s perfect for spring and such an easy side dish to whip up if you have to cook a million other things, too.
Do I really need to say anything about this one? It’s asparagus. Roasted. With garlic. And parmesan cheese. Bliss.
I have an entire post on how to cook the perfect green beans 🤷🏻♀️ What can I say? We love these green little things! Roasted or steamed… They’re SO good!
So… This is DEFINITELY a decadent holiday dinner side. But. It is so delicious. Seriously. Make it. White Wine and Thyme Baked Carrots. So, so good.
This Spinach Strawberry Walnut Salad is just the perfect salad for Easter! Full of tender baby spinach leaves and seasonal strawberries. I could eat this every single day.
This is an absolutely mind blowing Spinach Avocado Salad. The fresh berries make it so pretty, perfect for a gorgeous Easter dinner table!
I don’t know about you, but I just adore fruit with savory dishes. This strawberry fruit salad isn’t overly sweet, the mint gives it a nice freshness and the roasted pistachios a kick of saltiness. The perfect light side for a holiday dinner!
The Bird’s Nest Cookies are a new recipe on Savory Nothings this year, and I always thought I wasn’t the cutesy holiday food person… But now I have a sassy preschooler who knows where I have the Pinterest app on my phone. Oh well, you’ll be getting a lot more kid-friendly holiday treats on my blog this year, that’s for sure!
This Raspberry Yogurt Cake is one of the most simple cakes, no frosting, no filling, nothing fancy. But it’s also one of the best cakes I’ve ever made in my life, and you can certainly smother it in your favorite buttercream frosting if you want to.
I just recently shared this berry cheesecake fruit salad on the blog, and it’s already getting a lot of love! The dressing is super creamy, but secretly healthy. The best way to end a decadent Easter dinner.
This is THE classic fruit dessert combination for spring! My grandma grows a lot of rhubarb, but she actually doesn’t even like it. So I get to make a lot of strawberry rhubarb crisp every spring, and I LOVE it!
Such a perfect dessert for spring! These No Bake Cheesecakes are individually portioned in jars for a cute and festive look.
So much Easter yum!
I know… No main dishes. I’m terrible at holiday main dishes, because I barely ever had to make them so far. Also, I far prefer all the sides and salads and desserts to the main course… 🤷🏻♀️🙈
I hope you’re having a fantastic holiday with your loved ones and a whole load of delicious food!
I’ll be looking for the Easter bunny in the woods with my kiddos. They’re already so excited, it’s a miracle if they’ll sleep tonight… Wish me luck.
Wishing you a very Happy Easter! 🐰🐣🌷
