We love a good board around here, and we bet you’re in on the trend too. In “Board Games,” learn to level up your Sunday brunch, create a holiday board with all your favorite cookies, or style a cheese board for a night in — we have tips for creating all of them. Get ready to dial up your Easter brunch with this spring-themed brunch board from Olivia Carney of That Charcuterie Chick.
Sunday brunch is my favorite way to close out a relaxing weekend and have a rejuvenating start to my upcoming week. Gathering around the table with family or friends and enjoying good conversation, belly laughs, and most importantly, comforting food is absolute bliss.
Harry & David’s breakfast offerings lets you take brunch to a whole new level, which is perfect for occasions like Easter. My absolute favorite go-to brunch item is the classic Eggs Benedict. Making them can be a bit of work, but it’s worth it for a special holiday brunch. Plus, Wolferman’s hollandaise sauce mix makes for the easiest eggs benny you’ve ever made (so you’ll spend less time in the kitchen on Easter morning), and the salty Canadian bacon and soft English muffins make you feel like you’re dining at your favorite brunch spot.
The Triple Cheese and Caramelized Onion Quiche is a fan favorite with my friends. It’s the perfect in-between breakfast and lunch item for those who can’t decide and it has a cheesy, savory flavor I will forever crave. I also like adding warm cinnamon rolls for a little sweetness. Lastly, I include fresh fruit, like bananas, grapes, strawberries, and blueberries to fill out the rest of the brunch board.
Making the Easter Brunch Board
Make sure to start preparing your brunch a little early, since some items like the quiche take extra time to heat up and prepare.
- Prepare the quiche, cinnamon rolls, and Eggs Benedict according to the directions on the packages. These will be the focal point of your board, so place them in opposite corners to create balance across it.
- Fill in your board with the additional items like fresh fruit (or Easter treats like Mr. Ears the chocolate bunny!). You want the smaller items to fill out the empty spaces between the quiche and Eggs Benedict, but make sure you save space for your sauce ramekins and serving pitcher. If you like more savory items at breakfast, you can also fill in some of the space with nuts or breakfast meats (like that Canadian bacon) and cheeses.
- Heat up the cinnamon roll glaze and add it to a small jar, ramekin, or pitcher, along with the warmed hollandaise sauce. You can drizzle some glaze and hollandaise sauce over the cinnamon rolls and Eggs Benedict, respectively, but leave the jars or pitchers on the board with the remainder so guests can serve up extra.
You can serve the board with wooden tongs or serving utensils for guests to easily grab their favorites. This delicious brunch board pairs great with coffee, bellinis, or fresh-squeezed juice to make it the perfect brunch any time of year.
