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, to beet-pickled deviled eggs, to Earl Grey hot cross buns, to breakfast sangria. Let these 21 recipes help you celebrate with the people you love.

For the main dish at brunch, we're partial to roast lamb or baked honey-glazed ham, which both handily serve a crowd. After you've decided on the big dish, we have a spread of sweet and happy things everyone loves, like strawberry-sour cream scones, an asparagus-mint salad, and gorgeous cocktails.
