Brunching Bites and Dinner Delights: Feed Your Easter Crowd from Morning to Night with the Help from the McCormick Kitchens
Treat Guests to a Feast Full of Flavor with recipes for Ham & Cheese Egg Cups, Savory One Pot Lamb, Adorable Bunny Butt Cupcakes and much more
April 01, 2018

You may be tempted to put all your eggs in one basket on Easter morning and call it a day once Easter brunch is over. But why limit Easter to just one meal when you can enjoy seasonal favorites all day long? Keep the celebration going with savory and sweet holiday recipes that will make the occasion one to remember from brunch to dessert!

For the early risers, plan breakfast in advance with a make-ahead recipe like an Overnight Lemon Blueberry Muffin Casserole. Or, make a breakfast version of everyone’s favorite, monkey bread, with the addition of sausage, Cheddar cheese and the rich flavor of country gravy.

For the main event, ‘hop’ into a new tradition and swap your classic ham for savory, flavorful lamb. Thanks to the popularity of a new kitchen darling, the electric pressure cooker, it’s easier than ever to create what can seem like an intimidating dish. Easily combine aromatic herbs with white wine for a juicy leg of lamb in just under an hour!  Finish with colorful sweets treats like creamy Carrot Cake Swirled Cream Cheese Bars and tangy Creamy Lime Bars, or delight the kids and grown-ups with Bunny Butt Cupcakes and DIY Homemade Easter Bunny Marshmallows.

Striped, polka dotted or marbled…Easter eggs just got a whole lot cooler. With simple tips and tools like rubber bands and stickers, you can create a new masterpiece on an oval shaped canvas. These are perfect for an Easter egg hunt or make a beautiful table centerpiece.
