I love brunch and it doesn't get any better than gathering around a nice Easter brunch spread with your friends and family. Whether you're traveling to be with friends and family or enjoying the holiday in town, Hoppy Easter! (Excuse the cheesiness, I just had to do it!) Do you have any family Easter traditions or recipes? If so, please comment below. I would love to hear them!

The menu below is for 6 people so adjust as needed to fit your group. The pricing is from a shopping trip to Harris Teeter and will vary depending on your grocery store. The subtotal below is $38...you could not go to any restaurant for Easter brunch at $6.50 per person (not one that I know of at least!).
