5 brunch ideas for Easter weekend

Easter is by far the laziest weekend of the year, with not much else to do than relax and do some cooking. And there’s nothing quite as luxurious as a brunch, whether you’re having people over or not. Here are our favourite Easter brunch ideas.

Croque madame gratin with Parmesan corn

While a Croque madame isn’t very difficult, it does a little time to make, meaning it’s the ideal slow brunch recipe. Swap the bacon for smoked salmon if you prefer.

There’s something wholesomely nostalgic about French toast, so what better time to make this cornflake version than over the most indulgent weekend of the year?

Gluten-free turmeric fritters

Whether you’re gluten-free or not, these fritters are guaranteed winners. They’re also packed with veggies so you don’t have to feel too bad about all the chocolate you’re going to eat after them.
