Hello, from melting Michigan! It’s me Julie from redheadcandecorate.com where the snow is finally melting! I have proof because a big chunk of ice just fell off of our roof and scared the heck out of my cats. Okay, to tell you the truth it rattled me as well, but I am so ready for some sun, how about you? With Spring upon us that means Easter is quickly approaching as well, and many of us enjoy celebrating with a nice family brunch. Or, maybe you’re looking for the perfect dish to share at church or at a friend’s house? If so, you’ve come to the perfect spot.
Below you will find 10 delicious brunch recipes that are all perfect for brunch, or breakfast. You may even want to try some of them for dinner. No joke! I asked my family if they wanted breakfast for dinner a couple weeks ago and they acted so happy and excited, like I was ordering a pizza or something. I guess I’ll have to try that more often.
First up, is a recipe I use when I am trying to watch my carbohydrates. I’ve made this “Low Carb Quiche” recipe several times and I still do not miss the crust. It pairs nicely with a couple slices of avocado. My kids even enjoyed it, win win!
The next two recipes are for the bacon lovers out there. We love bacon at our house, but I do have to limit it due to my husband and I being prone to high cholesterol. We use turkey bacon as a substitute and it actually satisfies pretty well. I enjoy the Kroger version that is nitrate free if you are looking for one.
I grew up with my Dad frying potatoes every Sunday morning, so potatoes are usually found on our Sunday breakfast table still. I’ve never posted my recipe on my blog, but I do have the pleasure of enjoying my wonderful food contributor Tastes of Lizzy T share her oven roasted potato recipe. Making them in the oven sounds like it would be much easier, especially if you have a crowd.
The next 3 recipes are full of those yummy carbohydrates that I am sure will satisfy everyone at your table. Sometimes we just have to let go and have what we crave, right? Between the English Muffin Bread (doesn’t that sound good?), and the syrup drenched pancakes and waffles, no one will leave your brunch feeling like they missed out on some sweet choices.
Well, you knew I just had to sneak something very healthy in there in the end, right? I make my “Skinny Salad” very often and it tastes as beautiful as it looks. Of course feel free to substitute things you don’t have. This recipe is very versatile, simple, and will compliment any meal.
Lastly, I located two beautiful cocktails (1 no alcohol) to serve at your brunch. I tend to focus on the meal so much that I forget about the drinks. These gorgeous cocktails reminded me to get on top of that. They just looks so yummy and fun.
I hope I’ve provided some unique brunch ideas that will add to your Spring gathering. I’ll be spending Easter with my entire family this year, so I am very excited to see them. I hope you all have a wonderful Spring break!

We just finished the tile, and the electric fireplace is in, too! It’s one of my favorite renovations to date. See you there! ~ Julie
