Easter is a time to come to together with family, whether that includes going to church, an egg hunt or just relaxing and enjoying one another’s company. It is a day when you want to relax, reflect and enjoy the moment, not feel frazzled or like you have to spend all day tethered to the kitchen. But, good food is a highlight of the holiday. So, how to you balance the two? Start the day off with a breakfast that does not take too long to whip up. Then, if you want, indulge in any leftovers post-church or after the festivities have died down. Since Easter is fast approaching, it is time to get the menu in order. Check out these recipes to make Easter breakfast in a snap. The whole family will love these, we promise!

Love the warm gooeyness of cinnamon rolls, but not the kneading, providing and long time commitment to make them? Try these! In about an hour, you will have the doughy, cinnamon-packed rolls you crave. Make sure to dip them in plenty of icing. Enjoy!
Makeover the classic eggs or pancake breakfast with an Easter twist. Simple make your favorite scrambled or fried egg recipe, or pancakes, if you prefer, and then add toppings to make it look like a bunny.

Onion, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, ham, butter, milk, seasonings and plenty of love go into this casserole, which makes an outstanding leftover days after it is first made. Enjoy with plenty of milk. For an extra twist, add veggie, such as broccoli and peppers for a healthier dish.
This showstopper of a breakfast also happens to be gluten-free. A granola crust is filled with creamy Greek yogurt and tons of fruit. We love strawberries, kiwi, kumquats, blueberries, blackberries, bananas and raspberries as toppings, but you can use whatever you like. Arrange each topping in a gorgeous sequence. Make sure to take a picture before you cut. Maybe making one will become a tradition each year, so document it now.
It is rare to find a recipe idea that is easy, tasty and works for brunch, breakfast and dessert, but we have found it. A light sugar cookie crust is topped with sweetened cream cheese, followed by fruit, rearranged to look like an egg with many stripes. Beautiful and fun to eat, score!
