Here a few Easter buffet ideas and recipes:

Set Up
Set out plates at the beginning of the buffet. Next place appetizers, savory dishes, and main dishes. At the end of the table, place the dessert. Also provide spoons, forks, tongs, or the appropriate serving utensils for each item. Finally, provide plenty of napkins and eating utensils.

Easter Brunch Buffet Recipes

Smoked Salmon Platter with Toasted Bagels: Arrange a platter smoked salmon, tomatoes, capers, lemon slices, and red onions. Serve with dill sour cream: Mix ½ cup sour cream, 4 teaspoons chopped fresh dill and 4 teaspoons chopped scallions in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Slice bagels in half and toast bagel slices in a toaster.

Bacon and Goat Cheese Frittata: Pre-heat the oven’s broiler. Combine 8 eggs, 1 bunch of chopped chives, 2 tbsp. oregano, ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a large bowl. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add ½ cup diced Canadian bacon and cook until golden brown about 3 minutes. Add the egg mixture to the pan. Cook, lifting the edges of the frittata so that the uncooked eggs run underneath. Continue cooking until the bottom of the frittata is a touch golden. Sprinkle ½ cup goat cheese on top of the frittata and put the pan under the broiler a few minutes until golden brown. Serve warmed or at cold.

Cheese and Cherry Blintzes: To save time purchase premade blintz crepes. If you’re feeling ambitious, make them from scratch. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9-inch by 9- inch baking dish. Beat 1 ½ cup ricotta and 8 ounces of softened cream cheese in a bowl. Add 3gg yolks, 6 tablespoons of powdered sugar, 1 tbsp. flour and ¼ teaspoon vanilla until fluffy. Add 2 tablespoons of filling down the center of each crepe and then sprinkle a few sour cherries (from a can, drained) over the filling. Fold the blintz as you would a burrito. Place each blintz in the pan with the seam facing down. Cover with foil. Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 5 minutes. Top with cherry topping.

Sparking Orange Juice: Fill a glass with ice. Add 3 ounces of orange juice and 3 ounces of club soda. Stir and serve. Serves 1.
