By now most of you know that I’m Greek. So here’s the thing with us Greeks:
We’re hot headed.
We yell a lot, even when we’re not angry.
We think that everything tastes better with lemon. Lots and lots of lemon. (Oregano, too.)
We celebrate Easter on a different day then, oh, everyone else in the world who celebrates Easter.
On some years, Greek Easter aligns with what I like to call “regular” Easter. On others, Greek Easter is as many as five weeks later. This is one of those years. You’re going to be totally psyched for posts about naturally dyed Easter eggs and Greek-style Easter leg of lamb in early May, right?!
Seeing that I don’t celebrate Easter for another month, I’m not yet in holiday cooking mode. So, in the meantime, I’ve rounded up a list of amazing Easter brunch recipes that can be prepped in 30 minutes or less. Because putting together a festive brunch with only 30 minutes of prep work is just my speed right now.
Don’t be fooled by my lackadaisical attitude, though: these recipes are genuinely festive and decidedly delicious. We’re talking Hot Cross Pancakes, a Zucchini Ricotta Cheesecake and more. They are, without a doubt, worthy of your Easter celebration. Check ’em out and see.

And, as a bonus—an Easter egg for all you geeky types!—here are a few additional recipes that also fit the bill:
Spinach and Cheese Strata if you want to do your prep the night before
Have a happy holiday if you are celebrating. And, if not: make one of these recipes anyway. It’ll only take you about 30 minutes!
