Easter is one of those holidays that I don’t help much with. I might make a dessert but we spend Palm Sunday enjoying an Easter meal with my family and then Easter Sunday with Dearest Carl’s. It’s wonderful to get to celebrate with both families! So when I was thinking up Easter posts to share, I thought an Easter brunch for two would be fun. And let me tell you, it was fun!
Since cheese plates are kind of our thing, it was stretching for me to create one for breakfast. And I was quote pleased with how it turned out! I started out with Asiago and Brie for the cheese. I knew I wanted crackers and toasts as the vehicles for the cheese, giving a good variety of texture. Next I chose raspberries and plums for fruit and being an Easter brunch cheese plate, dyed hard boiled eggs were a must (I dyed mine with red cabbage).
Now we get to the really fun part. Usually I’ll pair a meat or two with the cheese but being a brunch cheese plate, I wanted to go on the lighter side. So I made these Strawberry Cinnamon Rolls by Dessert for Two. I’ve made them before and while I can never get them to roll up pretty, they are delicious! The recipe makes just four and they’re super easy to whip up on a Saturday morning.
I also made this delicious Banana Bread Granola by Well Floured. It was so simple and a great use of overripe bananas! We’ve been enjoying it all week!
To really make it a brunch feast, we had orange juice (champagne optional) and apricot preserves on the side. It was a lovely little brunch! So whether you are making brunch for you and your hubby or you and your mom or you and your roommate, consider a brunch cheese plate. You won’t be disappointed.
