Easter is a day for brunch — whether you eat it first thing in the morning, or well into the afternoon when the Easter egg hunt is over, with chocolate eggs for hors d'oeuvres. Brunch is also the best excuse to eat with friends and family early in the day, with sticky buns, ham, and platters of asparagus offered up for spring.

We have recipes for you, from make-ahead lemon rolls and avocado deviled eggs, to classic hot cross buns and breakfast sangria. Let these recipes help you celebrate with the people you love.

The Mains: Ham, Lamb, or Lasagna!

For the main dish at brunch, we're partial to options that serve a crowd. Ham is a classic with lamb right behind it, but sometimes neither are right for your celebration. Salmon or even a really lovely roast chicken are great options, too.

Eggs and Breakfast Casseroles

The magic of brunch is that you really get to serve whatever you like and eat what you like. So right next to that ham goes a stunning breakfast casserole and a platter of deviled eggs.

Deviled Eggs

Start here: Use eggs that you've had for a while and pressure cook them for the best results.
