158 Easter Recipes - A roundup of drinks, breakfasts, side dishes and desserts. | browneyedbaker.com

Wow, did Easter creep up on me this year! Does your family have any Easter traditions? A big brunch… a casual get together… an Easter egg hunt for the kids… typical ham, potatoes, and traditional side dishes? My grandma always baked some special things at Easter, and our menu has always been built around traditional lamb, ham and potato dishes.

Today I’m sharing a round up of some of my favorite Easter foods. You’ll find ideas for breakfasts, brunches, appetizers, side dishes, and desserts. If you’re putting together a menu this week, I think you’ll find some great ideas in the list below. Enjoy!
