Short-circuit your plan for deviled eggs. Plan for a platter of deviled eggs or create a deviled egg bar with toppings, from bacon to smoked salmon and beyond. Oh — and skip boiling the eggs. Buy hard-cooked eggs (they’re in the Dairy department and they’re beyond cage-free too), and you’ve just saved yourself some time.
Purchase premade breads and pastries. It’s all about presentation (and taste). Thankfully, you can get big points without spending much energy or time by setting up a heaping platter of pastries and breads. Our Bakery offers a delicious selection of ready-to-enjoy breakfast goods like muffins, scones, bagels, croissants and more. Don’t forget organic butter and fruit preserves.
Have someone else take care of the entrées. The key to keeping brunch stress-free is to do the old make-some-buy-some trick. In this case, we’re the “someone else.” We’ll take care of the Easter ham, the Broccoli Cheddar Quiche and Quiche Lorraine. All you need to do is reserve, schedule a time for pickup, reheat and enjoy.
Get the only dessert you need. It’s easy: Serve a cake that always impresses — Berry Chantilly. Enough said.
Have festive drinks on hand*. In addition to the essentials — coffee and OJ — have a few bottles of sparkling Italian soda and sparkling wine for your own signature mocktails and cocktails.
