There are a lot of traditions around Easter time that will keep you hopping: visiting with family, dyeing eggs, prepping baskets, hiding eggs, hosting guests, making sure the kids don't find out that there's a person inside of the bunny suit, etc. The last thing you want to do, amidst this spring celebration, is to worry about feeding yourself—and other people.

Thankfully, the very eggs you're planning on dyeing technicolor have also got your back. Eggs are versatile, require minimal hands-on time, and are the perfect vehicles for last night's leftovers. Preassemble a strata before bed and pop it in the oven half an hour before your guests arrive. Let your pain perdu sit in the fridge overnight, then watch as everyone oohs and aahs over the custardy interior. And never underestimate the joy of eating a creamy baked egg on a crisp slice of toast. 


Don't put all of your Easter eggs in the basket—save some for these 12 make-ahead brunch ideas:
