When the weekend rolls around, we look forward to one thing: BRUNCH. But why dine out when you can cook a delicious spread of breakfast favorites in the comfort of your own kitchen? Whether you're celebrating the upcoming Easter holiday with your spouse or with your family, check out these easy brunch recipes from our gal Heidi Larsen of FoodieCrush.
These tasty hand-held bites are fun to eat and easy to make—prepare them the night before and then pop them into the oven in the morning. We love this classic ham, cheese, and egg combo for Easter, but you can customize your cups with whatever ingredients you're craving or have handy in the fridge: red peppers, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, herbs, or other cheeses.

The beauty of this frittata is its versatility—you can serve it hot or cold, eat it with a fork or with your hand, and make it with any combination of meat, veggies, and cheeses. This egg-y, bacon-y, potato-y recipe packs a delicious punch, and the broccoli sneaks in a serving of veggies. Get the recipe here.
Love banana bread? Then you'll love these pancakes made with bananas, pancake mix, nuts, buttermilk, and spices. Your kitchen will smell like heaven when you cook these up, and your spouse or kiddos will eat up every bite of these delicious hot cakes. Get the recipe here.
Some people like Resurrection Rolls for Easter, but we love good ol' fashioned cinnamon rolls. And these perfectly fluffy pillows of dough slathered with buttery cream cheese frosting are everything we want in a baked good. Get the recipe here.
