Ham with Orange and Stone-Ground Mustard
With a glistening glaze and salty slow-cooked goodness, it’s no surprise so many consider ham the culinary crown jewel of Easter. Our retro ham recipe gets a tangy sweet treatment thanks to a stone-ground mustard and maple syrup glaze. Get the recipe here.

Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread
Country-style cornbread may sound like a surprising choice for an Easter brunch buffet, but this zesty and cheesy recipe couldn’t be a more perfect pick. Serve with a Southwestern-style frittata or strata for a warm melding of flavors. Get the recipe here.

Yogurt Biscuits
Self-rising flour, plain Greek yogurt, salt and a little bit of love are the only ingredients needed for these low-fat biscuits. Once baked, split and stuff with eggs and cheese, breakfast meats, fruity jams or herby boursin cheese and roasted peppers and butter for something really special. Get the recipe here.

Prosecco Sunrise Punch
A little bubbly in the morning is a sure way to brighten brunch. Orange juice and bubbly Italian Prosecco are the sweet stars of this cocktail, but we think any fresh fruit juice would make a fine mixer. Get the recipe here.

Frittata with Chorizo
The Italian Frittata goes Spanish with the help of aged Manchego cheese, spicy chorizo and bright bell peppers. If you don’t have Spanish chorizo on hand, don’t fret, any cured sausage will do. Get the recipe here.
