Has self-isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak put a damper on your Easter brunch plans?
Whether you’re used to a big bacon-and-egg buffet with the kids or a more elegant, mimosa-laden brunch setup, these YouTube cooking channels will give you some ideas about how to recreate the fun of Easter breakfasts, brunches, and desserts at home in quarantine.
Christy Carlson Romano
Christy Carlson Romano, the iconic voice of Disney’s Kim Possible, has become popular on YouTube recently for her lifestyle, cooking, and parenting videos.
Her family-friendly Easter brunch—quiche Lorraine, berry banana
fruit salad with honey and lemon, and homemade hash browns—can be whipped up in
just an hour. The dishes are made with common ingredients, too, so you probably
won’t have to venture out on a shopping trip during the COVID-19 outbreak to
make your Easter special.
Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix
Tia Mowry won our hearts with her twin sister Tamera Mowry on Sister, Sister, and she’s turned into quite the cooking and entertaining expert over the years. Her Easter brunch “eggs in a basket” idea uses simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen—like dinner rolls, butter, bacon, milk, salt and pepper, cheddar cheese, and, of course, eggs—and takes less than an hour to make.
This brunch dish is kid-friendly, cute, and easy to prepare at home.
Food & Wine
If you’re used to a more elegant Easter brunch at a nice restaurant, complete with springtime cocktails, don’t despair. Even in quarantine, you can recreate the atmosphere at home with Food & Wine’s brunch menu. These decadent brunch dishes include a blood peach Bellini, poached eggs with red wine sauce, grapefruit cornmeal cake, roasted vegetables with fresh herbs, and more.
The cooking, hosting, decorating, DIY, crafting, and entertaining ideas on MissLizHeart’s popular YouTube channel are always fairly simple and aesthetically pleasing.
Her Easter brunch menu (candied sausage, baked cheesy eggs, and French toast with cream cheese butter) is easy enough to be quarantine-friendly, but she includes fancy plating ideas to give it that special something “extra.”
If you want to create an elegant atmosphere for yourself and your family (or whoever you’re quarantining with), Theodore Leaf has some perfect inspiration for an at-home Easter brunch. This YouTuber will teach you to make a pie crust from scratch—which isn’t as hard as it looks—as well as a tasty quiche. He also includes springtime table setting ideas to make the morning special.
The Scran Line
Are you all about the sweet treats on Easter? Then you have to check out the gorgeous, ultra-Instagrammable Easter dessert ideas at The Scran Line—especially if you were really looking forward to the brunch dessert table before the coronavirus outbreak happened.
These cute treats range from fairly simple to much more involved and advanced, so you can pick your poison accordingly. The video includes Easter classics and brand-new ideas, like iced bunny rabbit cookies, a rainbow Easter cookie pie shaped like a giant egg, no-bake Oreo Easter egg cheesecake, an Oreo Easter egg cupcake, and a stunning speckled egg layer cake.
The Family Fudge
If you have little ones at home who are tired of being cooped up in quarantine, The Family Fudge’s Easter breakfast ideas are perfect. They don’t take long to make, and they’re on the healthier side—but still festive enough to be holiday-ready.
The Easter breakfasts in this video include fruity Easter pancakes, topped with whipped cream and shaped like eggs; ham-filled egg muffin cups in the shape of bunnies; and Easter bunny oatmeal bowls with giant banana ears.
