Best Brunch Ideas – for Easter and Beyond!

One of our favorite ways to celebrate Easter and spring is hosting brunch for friends and family.

Finding a restaurant for brunch on Easter morning is quite the challenge. We find gathering together at our home for drinks, fun and a hearty meal is actually easier than calling every restaurant in town months ahead of time hoping to get a reservation.

To minimize the stress of hosting a big brunch:

  • Focus on dishes that can be prepped or made ahead of time.
  • Make it a potluck! You provide the main and guests bring sides, desserts and drinks.
  • Keep it simple. Don’t worry on providing tons of different dishes – pick a delicious main, 2-3 easy sides and a crowd-pleasing dessert and call it a day.

Looking for specific recipes? Check out some of our favorite brunch dishes below:


Garlic & Tuscan Herb Lamb Chops – lamb is a classic for Easter brunch and when flavored with Garlic or Tuscan Herb, two of our most popular oils, it’s certainly a crowd pleaser!  

Balsamic Glazed Ham – Another Easter bunch classic is ham! Our flavored dark balsamic vinegars are excellent for glazing and flavoring baked ham.

Looking for a vegetarian main? Our Veggie & Oregano Frittata is a savory egg dished packed with diced onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, and spinach.


Cilantro and Onion Braised Vegetables showcase the vibrant flavors of spring.

Fruit salads dressed with sweet white balsamics are an easy make ahead side!

Beets can’t be beat when it comes to easy, flavorful side dishes. Try roasting beats in EVOO and Black Currant Dark Balsamic for a sweet yet earthy side

Looking for something a bit more exotic? Try this Carrot Salad with a zesty Moroccan-inspired dressing.


The classic Bloody Mary with a Rocky Mountain Olive Oil twist! Flavored with Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar this recipe is sized for a crowd.  

White Raspberry Mojito – Sweet, light, and refreshing.


Carrot Cake with Roasted Walnut Oil – Ok, ok, serving carrot cake when the Easter bunny comes might be a bit on the nose, but hey, it’s delicious!

Happy Easter to those who celebrate, and happy Spring!
