I adore breakfast foods. So, when I can eat them long after the morning hours, I’m all for it!
That’s where brunch steps in and saves the day. While some people just eat regular breakfast foods for brunch, I like to change things up.
For example, I like to make my eggs into hearty bakes. I also like to swap cake for pancakes… yes, cake!
To see all of my favorite recipes for an at-home brunch, you can check out the rest of my blog below.
Best Brunch Recipes To Try At Home
Brunch is great, but going out isn’t always budget-friendly. Here are some tasty (and inexpensive!) dishes you can make in your own kitchen.
Chili Cheese Egg Bake
Eggs are a classic brunch item, but if you can change them up a bit it adds a whole new dimension to the meal!
Check out my Chili Cheese Egg Bake which includes two types of cheeses and diced, green chilis.
This recipe is also great as an appetizer. I like to serve it with an assortment of sour cream, salsa and guacamole!
Easy Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Quiche
This recipe was actually created out of necessity… I had some eggs that were about to expire and some leftover broccoli from another meal.
When I remembered how much I enjoyed Quiche Lorraine at the Marie Callender restaurant near my childhood home, I knew exactly what to do with the ingredients!
This Bacon Broccoli Quiche recipe takes about 45 minutes to bake and very little time to prep.
I love how it gets a slight golden brown top when it’s ready!
Roasted Veggies and Ham Quiche
Need to use up some leftovers? Add them to this rich quiche dish!
When you have a good base recipe for quiche, it becomes an easy weekday meal for breakfast, lunch or even dinner.
I already shared my Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Quiche, but here’s another one you’ll want to try.
This quiche is made with cooked ham, garlic, roasted cauliflower and more. You can basically add any additional ingredients you think will taste good!

You’ve heard of pineapple upside-down cake, but have you heard of a pineapple bake? This recipe is from my husband’s family and it’s something they always served with ham for the holidays.
Now, I can’t imagine an easter dinner without it!
It only requires five ingredients and they might be staples you already have around the house.
I also love to double the recipe and serve the leftovers chilled!
Low-fat Carrot Cake
I’ve always been a fan of carrot cake. But if we’re honest, it isn’t always the healthiest recipe.
That’s why I created this low-fat version to share with you!
It’s been in my recipe book for years and all I can tell you is that it’s moist, dense and just plain good. You can’t go wrong with this!
I just adore this cake. It’s easy to make and create!
My mom made this for me as my 1st birthday cake and I try to make it at least once a year because it’s so dear to me.
And let’s face it… who doesn’t love to decorate with fun candies?
The recipe is just a hop, skip and jump away! Find it HERE.
Any recipe that starts with cake mix is a win in my book. And this one is a hit!
It’s made with a store-bought mix and it’s filled with hints of brown sugar and cinnamon. It’s also one that my mom created and one she made for years in our household.
To whip it up at home, you can find all the ingredients and instructions HERE.
Then there’s my newest sweet recipe… cinnamon bread!
It came from my Grandma Metzger’s recipe box and it’s the perfect sweet addition to your Easter table.
Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
I know what you’re thinking… really Jill? Cookies for brunch?
Yes! Because they’re easy and I love making cutouts of Easter-themed shapes out of the dough.
Now maybe these won’t be your main treat, but they’re definitely a good addition to savory dishes.
You can find the ingredients to make them HERE.
Other Brunch Foods to Buy for Easter
Whether you’re cooking for a big crowd or you don’t have a lot of time to prep brunch recipes, it’s nice to have some premade items on hand to take some stress out of the day.
If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll want to snag one of our My Grandma’s Coffee Cakes we have at the Just Jill Shop.
Our Walnut-Topped Coffee Cake can serve up to 26 people and features layers of cinnamon throughout.
And for those that don’t like the crunch on top, we have a Walnut-Free Cinnamon Coffee Cake that always seems to be a hit!
Don’t forget to snag one of our seasonal favorites like banana walnut, blueberry or lemon poppy!
But if you’re searching for a savory side, our Happy to Meat You Breakfast Bonanza is surely the way to go.
With a total of 5.5 pounds of flavor-packed sausage links, applewood smoked bacon and premium thick-cut bacon, you’ll have enough for the hungriest of family members or friends.
And if you have biscuits, toast, or breads at the table, you’ll have to snag some Southern Roots Sisters jams.
This set comes with 6 flavors including peach pepper, raspberry chipotle, strawberry pepper, triple berry, cranberry pepper and apple butter.
Some of them have a bit of a kick, but they’re all deliciously sweet and made with high-quality ingredients.
If you ask me, brunch wouldn’t be the same without some bagels! And we have the BEST bagels available in the Just Jill Shop… at least the best I’ve ever tried!
Bagelista bagels are handcrafted in Brooklyn, NY. So, with each bite you’ll get that authentic NYC bagel flavor.
Are all these brunch recipes making you hungry? Sounds like it’s about time to plan for the big day!
