Spring is a time for celebrations: Easter, Mother’s Day, showers, and more. And nothing complements a spring party like a delicious brunch. Sure, crispy bacon and your go-to egg dish will be on the menu, but how about wowing hungry family and friends with some out-of-the box ideas? Pampered Chef tools and recipes make it easy for you to enjoy the party too. Who says guests get to have all the fun? Here are some of our favorite stress-free brunch ideas.
1. Berry Ricotta Cake with Lemon Icing
The ricotta keeps this cake nice and moist, while the raspberries and lemon glaze add bright flavors. Prepared in our Mini Deep Covered Baker, this cake can be served at the start of your next brunch or at the end of your next dinner party.
2. Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Braid
Bring the flavors of the grill indoors with this ever-popular recipe technique. Our Large Entertaining Platter showcases this delicious braid that only needs 10 minutes of prep time.
3. Thai Chicken Pizza
Perfect for any party, this pizza combines the fantastic texture of naan bread with the delicious flavors of Thai peanut sauce. Use our Multi-Grater & Slicer to grate the carrot and cucumber.
Tip: Substitute shrimp or tofu for chicken.
4. Dessert Grilled Cheese
This delectable dish comes in three variations: strawberries & cream, raspberries & goat cheese, and blueberry cheesecake. Make all three in our Executive Nonstick Double Burner Grill.
Tip: Dessert shells can be tricky to cut evenly, but our Close & Cut makes it easier.
5. Apple Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffins
Tip: Make these muffins ahead of time, then freeze, and heat them up for your brunch.
6. Napa Cabbage Peach Salad
We love the bright crunch of napa cabbage in this fresh salad. But this isn’t only for special occasions. Prepare the recipe in our Make & Take Lunch Pack and ditch the drive-thru during the week!

10. Easy White Rosette Cake
By looking at it, you’d think this was an expensive cake from a bakery. What if we told you it’s made in the microwave? Yep, this beautiful dessert is prepared in our Rockcrok® Dutch Oven and our Decorating Bag is used for easy rosettes.
