Easy Easter Brunch - Stress Free Plan

Last week I talked about preparing a stress-free Easter Dinner. This week I have a stress free plan for Easter Brunch, another tradition for Easter. After giving this some thought, I came up with an option that will please everyone, cook included!

Build-Your-Own Crepes

I know that crepes can seem intimating, but they are easier to make then you think. Plus, you can make them ahead. Pro-Tip: Be sure to place wax paper or paper towels in-between each crepe to keep them from sticking together as you store them. Then make up different fillings both savory and sweet. This lets everyone customize their brunch, so you don't have to worry about picky eaters. You can also involve your family by asking them to contribute with their favorite filling.

My personal favorite crepe recipe is from Alton Brown. You can find it here.

Strawberries and Cream Crepes from Liv life
Great recipe for the cream filling shown can be found here.
If you do make these crepes up ahead of time, any filling that would need to be served warm can be put in the crepes then heat them up in either the microwave or oven until the filling is warm.

Some tools to make this meal easier can be found at

A crepe pan is not necessary to make crepes, but it does make it easier to create nicely thin crepes with ease. You can get shop our selection of Crepe pans here.

A batter dispenser will help you measure out exactly how much crepe batter you are using. This will keep your crepes more even and get more out of the batter. You can shop our selection of batter tools here.
