Preparing an Easter brunch is easier than you think. With a little advance preparation and some simple brunch recipes you can enjoy the chance to catch up with friends and family over some delicious food instead of being stuck in the kitchen.
We've put together a simple menu of easter brunch recipes that will appeal to all ages and make for some stunning centre table pieces.
Try handing out some bite size freshly cut cucumber sandwiches when your guests arrive or a tasty Thai inspired salad. Followed by the stunning baked ham with a side salad, finishing off with a traditional Italian easter cake, or a lemon meringue pie.
Two great appetizers:
Have these cucumber sandwiches to hand to seve to your guests with drinks when they arrive.
Or try these Thai shrimp with lettuce and coriander wraps, a healthy and simple starter that can be made ahead of time.
Of course, the crowning glory of any Easter celebration is a succulent smoked ham roast.
Which you can serve alongside a colourful Saffron Potato and Green Bean Salad
Two great options are an Italian Easter cake known as Scarcella, which is beautifully decorated with hard-boiled eggs.
Or lemon meringue pie is a classic crowd pleaser and a great way to finish.
Blood orange and prosecco jellies (pictured up top) make for a refreshing palate cleanser while you catch up with friends and family over brunch.
