Shop and Create The Easiest Easter Brunch You'll Ever Make from Whole Foods & Prime Now Delivery

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whole Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

We talk about Brunch a lot here on TfDiaries. It's no secret that I love a good brunch especially when it happens to fall on a special occasion. So, when Whole Foods wanted to team up to create the perfect Easter Brunch, you know I hopped right on board!

You might know that I'm already a pretty avid Whole Foods shopper. We have our favorite stores throughout the city and always stop in the Union Square store for lunch when we take the boys to the park. What you might not know is that Whole Foods via Prime Now delivery is a lifesaverShop everything you need for brunch, daily life or just the essentials and have it delivered to your home with free two-hour delivery (valid for Prime Members in select zip codes)! Skip the seemingly endless lines and save your energy for putting together an amazing spread.

Now, let's talk about mine a bit. To make things easier on myself, I mixed my menu with pre-made items (like muffins, croissants and pre-baked quiche) with easy recipes. Honestly, it sure beat hours creating from scratch and tasted/looked nearly identical. Looking to skip the cooking all together? They have an excellent catering option too! They're making the holidays convenient and much more fun to celebrate sans the stress of prep. Now, if they could come clean my apartment too, that would be great...
Knowing that Easter brunches are usually very sweet, I went in thinking I wanted to do a mix of half sweet and half savory. I created a Build Your Own Waffle Bar with several flavors from 365 Everyday Value Waffles. The toppings were everything from fruit, chocolate chips, organic sprinkles, and Annie's graham bunnies! There are so many choices, you're really just limited by your imagination. Savory items like sausage and bacon as toppings were a hit as well. Of course, they were topped off with a drizzle of 365 Everyday Value Maple Syrup and Whipped Cream.
This Easter Brunch ended up being the perfect opportunity to debut my Bananas Foster Cinnamon Rolls recipe and here's the big secret: they're made with store-bought refrigerated dough. In addition to the waffles and rolls, I served up bakery fresh muffins and croissants as well as fresh fruit with spring cut out details.
For more of the savory, I was thrilled that the pre-made quiches cut my cooking time in half. 30 minutes at 350˚ and voila: fresh baked delicious quiches. I got both the Quiche Lorraine & Broccoli Cheddar- they were phenomenal! Of course, no brunch is complete without Avocado Toast so I added a little easter spin to it with dyed Easter eggs (dyed with 65 Everyday Value Plant-Based Food Coloring and served on a bed of micro greens).
  The tablescape was all things easter-themed: from candy eggs and little graham bunnies to fresh cut tulips and colorful flower cookies from the bakery. I also bought a few fresh herbs to help bring in a little extra greenery that doubles as additional seasoning! A little rosemary on the quiche was perfection.
