Easter Brunch

Would you like to do something special for the family this Easter that doesn't involve going to a hotel and spending a minimum of $30 per person (not including the service charge)? We're here to help you get everyone to church on Easter morning and still create a perfectly beautiful brunch through good planning and preparation. The menu below is designed to serve 8 adults generously and all of the dishes can be prepared ahead of time so you aren't spending every moment in the kitchen.

Start the brunch simply with purchased pastries and rolls, offer mimosas and coffee to the adults and have iced tea and juices for the children. Chef Morrison's Smoked Salmon Frittata can be made early and served at room temperature - you will love this simple but elegant and tasty rendition of eggs. A baked ham is traditional at Easter and we aren't going to argue. Use your favorite recipe or try the one below which is very traditional and add the unexpected but delicious Pineapple Salsa from Chef Babas of the Pacific Islands Club and the Wild Rice and Toasted Pecan Pilaf from Chef Singh of Hard Rock Cafe Micronesia. The Marinated Green Beans Almondine add a nice touch of color and flavor. Feel free to substitute a potato dish if your family prefers the familiar to the slightly exotic. After all, this is about creating something they will enjoy. Finish the meal with Chef Singh's fresh Mango Cobbler served with purchased ice cream.

Cover the table with a white cloth and then angle a slightly smaller cloth in a spring color over it or use a colorful runner. Choose placemats and napkins in spring colors - they don't have to match and they don't even have to be cloth. Use what works for your budget and clean up tolerance level! Use an Easter Basket for the centerpiece. A nice touch which you can have the children do the day before is to create Easter Eggs for each of the guests with their names on them and use those for placecards at each setting. To avoid staining the table linens, you can place each egg in a colorful paper cupcake liner.
