I love mornings. But the truth is, lately mornings around here have been a bit of a drag. Running a home business with small kids in tow while homeschooling is quite the balancing act. Even so, on special days like Easter, a little bit more effort goes into making Easter breakfast or Easter Brunch special.

Egg and ham breakfast cups are one of those simple to make breakfasts that is beautiful to look at and hence great for entertaining.  That’s what makes it a perfect choice for Easter morning. Some of my other breakfast ideas that are great for entertaining are vanilla chia pudding and mini egg frittatas. Don’t worry, these recipes are also gluten and grain-free and generally good for you too.

    I haven’t had breakfast yet and you are killing me with these! I know they are both easy and delicious, the question is, why do I not make them more often than I do? Thanks for the nudge.
