Easter sees many of us getting together with friends and family to mark the holiday, and share a meal. Whether you’re enjoying a breakfast with your closest family members, hosting a group, or attending a potluck, BC blueberries should be on your brunch menu!
Not only do these dishes include the natural sweetness and healthy antioxidants of blueberries, using Canadian ingredients and supporting local farmers is an excellent way to mark the beginning of spring!
If you’re looking for a healthy start to your brunch, make a big batch of smoothies to pass to guests as they arrive. Try this Blueberry Pineapple Ginger Smoothie, or this recipe for a Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie with grapefruit.
If you want to minimize the amount of time you’re in the kitchen, try a recipe that can be prepared ahead of time. Our Blueberry Bacon Bread Pudding is a long-time favourite among our recipes, and can be made the night before – just pop it in the oven when the crowd starts arriving. And these Blueberry Breakfast Toaster Tarts are sure to be a huge hit with the younger guests!
If your crowd includes those not eating meat, this Blueberry Spinach Lentil Salad makes a lovely, satisfying brunch dish – just swap the honey for maple syrup and skip the goat cheese for any vegan guests. If your menu includes an Easter Ham, a Pickled Onion Blueberry Chutney is a delicious accompaniment. And it’s just as good on the leftovers as well!
