3 Tips For Your Easter Sunday Brunch
When you’re planning an Easter Sunday brunch, the food is only part of the event! Today you can find a delicious brunch recipe idea, while also getting some tips for making the meal go smoothly.
Plan Delicious Recipes
Having lived in Maryland now for close to five years and having a husband born and raised here, I have developed a great appreciation for anything to do with the famous Chesapeake Blue Crabs. For celebrations and gatherings, nothing beats a big bushel of jumbo crabs, which I have finally mastered picking every small bit of delicious meat from! For this recipe don’t worry, there is no picking. We are going to make another local favorite, the crab cake.
This is a slight twist on the traditional Maryland crab cake (don’t tell my Mother in Law I added anything other than lump crab meat!), with a small amount of bread crumbs, egg, dried mustard, and lots of Old Bay! Yes, Marylanders take crab seriously.
Crab Cakes for Crab Cake Benedict
1 lb. of crab meat (You can go to your local grocery store and ask for 1 lb of jumbo lump crab meat. It may even come in a can, which is fine, as long as it is not imitation crab.)
1/3 cup of crushed Ritz crackers or plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup mayo
1/3 cup finely chopped bell pepper
Half a lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon of finely chopped green onions
1 teaspoon of finely chopped parsley
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon of dried mustard (can substitute 1 tablespoon of wet mustard)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of Old Bay (maybe a bit more, a real Marylander would!)
Dash of cayenne
Dash of garlic powder
Preheat to 425 F. Mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Form into 6 patties in a large glass pan. Don’t flatten them too thin or they’ll fall apart. Sprinkle some breadcrumbs lightly over all of them. Place in the oven for 15 minutes until they brown and harden. Turn the temperature up to broil for an additional 10 minutes. When they are golden brown, you know they’re done.
Find Some Me Time
When you’re planning your Easter Sunday brunch, spend a designated amount of time cleaning, and then find some Me Time. You don’t want to be stressing over the details on the day of your event. Take a few moments to grab a springtime-themed magazine, get cozy on your sofa, and make an iced coffee. When you’re done with the spring cleaning for the day, give yourself a break because you deserve it!
Putting up the Easter decorations makes the home look ready for spring. When you decorate, brighten your home with pinks, greens, oranges, blues, and a dash of white. With pastel and natural colors, your home with look festive and ready for entertaining. If you’re interested some of my picks from this article, head to my Instagram page!
