Whenever you get together for Easter with the family food is sure to be involved and we’ve put together our favourite recipe for Easter that you and your family can enjoy so check out these simple and easy ideas.
Easter for us is made extra special by seeing family. In England we have Good Friday and Easter Monday as Bank Holidays so an extra long weekend and the kids have 2 weeks off school.
So getting together with our extended family normally happens, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins we try and see everyone. And food makes up a big part of our celebrations. Whether it’s Easter Sunday breakfast with the kids and grandparents to people popping in it’s great to have a selection of different food to go to. Here’s a few ideas that we love as a family.
Easter Breakfast Recipes
Easter morning starts with some Carrot Cake Waffles – these are delicious and a firm favourite with the kids. They love the combination of flavours and it’s a great way to get a little vegetable into them on what can be a chocolate filled day.
