Nothing says Easter like a cozy family brunch, right? I heart brunch, it might be my most favorite meal. Living in Florida I consider us southerner’s and a good ol’ brunch with a casserole, mason jars and biscuits is just the way we like it. I can recall visits ‘up north’ and people be shocked by southern foods especially casseroles and grits…. two things I can’t eat enough of.

To get you prepped for holiday entertaining I’m sharing a yummy recipe and tips on how to create a simple southern Easter brunch!

So what makes a simple southern Easter brunch? A few must have items are biscuits with jelly, honey and butter, a casserole (there’s a delish recipe listed below), eggs, maple sausage and simple yet cute decor.

Let’s chat decor. Serving orange juice in mason jars is a must. Mason jars are decor in themselves but I’m always up for adding a little something extra to them. I added ribbon and paper egg cutouts to my jars and had my glittey rabbit on display for that extra glitzy punch. Using soft color tones is ideal for stylish Easter entertaining. Add a cute brunch sign and flowers to finish off your display. Remember to keep the focus on your delish food options by keeping the decor minimal.

Biscuits and honey has always been a fave of mine. Try it, your mouth will be overjoyed and you’ll start saying things like y’all before you know it. For those who might not be a fan of honey make sure you have jam and butter on standby. Eggs and maple sausage are simple items that will totally be devoured.

Simple Southern Easter Brunch with Ore-Ida

This casserole recipe is easy and delish. If you haven’t tried it before you must, make sure to grab Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes in the freezer section next time you make a Walmart visit.

Ingredients: Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes, onion, olive oil and shredded cheese

Recipe: In a large skillet warm a few teaspoons of olive oil. Add in your desired amount of Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes and begin cooking stirring every few minutes. After your potatoes begin to brown add in your diced onions. For 1/2 the bag of Ore-Ida Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes I added 1/4 cup of diced onions. Continue mixing your potatoes and onions until they are golden brown. Mix in your shredded cheese (1/2 a cup) and turn the burner off allowing the cheese to melt slowly. Place your casserole on a serving plate and enjoy!

    This is so cute and festive! I’m a major lover of hashbrowns and it’s become one of my favorite breakfast foods since pregnant with baby #2. Sounds so good!

    Breakfast style casseroles are great for when guests are visiting too. It’s nice to have something prepped and in the fridge so you can enjoy time spent with friends instead of slaving over the stove!

    Your spread is absolutely beautiful! And now that I know you live in the O-Town area, I demand that we meet up next time I’m down there visiting family. Wait. That sounds a little stalkerish. I really just want a photo op with my redheadded dress-loving twin. :) Your casserole looks delish and I might just show up at YOUR Easter celebration since my husband will be working.
