Easy Easter

We celebrated Easter a few days early this year with a casual and easy brunch with my brother and his family. Easter is one of my favorite holiday meals to cook for a few reasons. The main one being that I love scrambled eggs and ham. The fact that I get that for breakfast all week after this meal is reason enough to love it.

I also like all the options you have. There isn't as much of a "set" meal as there is with a dinner like Thanksgiving. We made spiral ham, and then used that to make a ham and Gruyere quiche. We also made lamb lollipops, where we coated the chops in breadcrumbs and cheese and pan fried them until golden brown.

We also made asparagus and cheese tarts, along with chocolate covered strawberries to try and utilize the fresh spring produce that is creeping into supermarkets.

And one of the things that we are starting to make at almost any meal where we have company... popovers. This time we made some blueberry butter to serve along with them. To make the butter, we just combined a few tablespoons with some blueberry Trappist Reserve. It was delicious!

And of course we served mimosas and coffee. What would brunch be without those staples? It was a fun, simple meal to put together, and a great way to celebrate Easter. Alleluia!
