Easter brunch 15 recipes

Old traditional recipes & new ideas

An Easter brunch has the charm of a cozy get-together for friends and family; combined with a good meal. Pastries, salads, warm dishes, sweet or savory, coffee, tea and wine – there is something for everyone. Many regional recipes are suitable for Easter, even if they are not really Easter specialties. So here are a few suggestions. How about “Falschem Hasen” in a lamb shape, Lübeck swallow’s nests, quixotic baked Easter bunnies, an Aachen Easter bread with candied lemon peel or a Poschweck?

The Easter brunch is not exactly typically German. Maybe that’s why there is no German equivalent for it. But it’s getting more and more popular. Brunch (from English) is a combination of breakfast and lunch.

The traditional Easter meal (Easter is a Christian holiday) on Easter Sunday consists of consecrated dishes and Easter biscuits for breakfast and, for example, an Easter lamb for lunch.

And here are some suggestions with old traditional recipes from different regions in Germany.

15 recipes for Easter brunch


1. FALSE HARE AS EASTER LAMB
If you don’t want the Easter bunny on the Easter table, you can use the traditional “Falscher Hase” meatloaf. In the classic lamb baking pan, it goes very well with Easter meals.
